In true Alysalovely style, I am FINALLY sharing my son’s first birthday photos about three months after his first birthday. Oops, I did it again! At least it’s a trend and I’m not treating him any better or worse than my daughter, right? Her first birthday post is here!
For Aiden, we put together an UP themed birthday party! It is such a great movie, and it was so much fun to dream up all the things we put together for the party. I am also excited to share it with you now!
In addition to all the actual helium balloons, I came up with a little game for the kids to play. I cut out a bunch of construction paper balloons and taped them to the wall all over the main floor. Kids could go around and count all the balloons, and if they got the answer right they won a prize! No one got it right haha they missed a few 😉
In the middle of putting helium in all the balloons. That was such a fun thing to do.
In honour of Ellie, I painted a copy of the up house at the top of Paradise Falls. I love how it turned out and it is still up in our living room now. I also made him a chalkboard style poster with his stats, such as how many teeth he had at the time, and how much he weighed, and words he can say. I find it really fun for guests to be able to see all that in one spot.
Aiden’s special cupcakes! I found this edible paper at Michael’s, and I cut them into balloon shapes. And I put the little paper UP house at the bottom. I love the way it looked so much
His first cupcake! He loved it 🙂
I made him a little pilot hat for the day, and then totally forgot to put it on him for the entire party haha he was wearing his adorable UP shoes from Lanie’s Closet though <3
I made everyone Ellie Badges that we gave out as a party favour, and I had to have the jar for the Paradise Falls fund!
All the adults got Ellie Badges, and all the kids got a soda bottle shaped thing of bubbles!
All of Aiden’s monthly photos <3
I made Aiden a “My Adventure Book” and then had everyone write their wishes for baby on cards to put in the book. It’ll be so fun for him to read them later in life <3
Some things are not pictured. I made balloon shaped cookies, we got soda in glass bottles, and we had hot dogs and hamburgers.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the things we put together for Aiden’s UP themed birthday party! It was such a great day and it turned out being a really fun theme.
