Today’s party feature is an Under the Sea party for one-year-old Kiernan! For Kiernan’s party, mom Jess decorated with all sorts of handmade Etsy finds, from favor buckets to cupcake toppers, water bottle labels to a specially-made time capsule.

A printable sign invites guests to come hang out by the pool.

Guests wrote notes to Kiernan on handmade notecards and put them in his time capsule box.

Homemade cookies were decorated with Kiernan’s initials and age.

Decorative buoys were tied to the fenceposts to add that little extra sea-worthy touch.

Water bottles on ice are a must for a summertime party!

Jess tied the silverware with jute twine and a Lifesaver candy.

Jess found the whale favor buckets at Magnolia Jane Gifts on Etsy.

Personalized printable favor tags were added to each favor bucket.

The big moment – time to make the first birthday wish!

Thank you so much for sharing, Jess! Happy first birthday to Kiernan! : )
