The very lovely Emily of The Anderson Crew blog put together the sweetest lil’ birthday party for her one-year-old son, Kohen – all for, get this, $30. Yes. Thirty dollars.

Now, the twine was a gift from The Twinery, and the stickers and printable favor circles were a gift from me. (Trust me, the Andersons deserve the love!) But even so, Emily put together the rest of the party with such style for so little dough – I’m in awe!

Just take a look at these photos and try not to smile. I love the color palette of aqua and red, and Emily’s photography skills are just… wow. Love!

Thank you, Emily! Happy birthday to Kohen!

    Emily, you never fail to impress!  Love it!  Heather, guess who will be buying sock monkey tags from you for my son's upcoming 1st birthday?  You guessed it, me!  :)  The gift bag tags and cupcake toppers you made for my baby shower (blue owls) were a big hit.
