We love seeing our moms in the mom.life app sharing the milestones of their children. When we came across our mombassador Deon’s pictures of her son Kingston’s adorable ‘Kurious Kingston’ First Birthday Party in the app, we just had to ask her if she would share even more photos and details with us. Here she is in her own words – she’s dishing on how she put the whole party together. Don’t forget to follow her in the mom.life app if you don’t already!
I am so happy to share the details of Kingston’s First Birthday with the mom.life community! My inspiration behind the theme of the party was definitely my son’s inquisitive and confident personality. Kingston started to walk at 8 months so he has had lots of time to explore and master certain skills. He loves to observe others and imitate their behaviors so I felt that the Curious George theme was very fitting.
My sister, (Instagram: @law_n_fashion05) discovered the storyline of Curious George and the Hot Air Balloon. Since we both love hot air balloons, we let the hot air balloon inspire the decor.
Let’s not forget about Pinterest! It was my go to website for decor, menu options and gift bag items. I just love that site! The party colors were red, yellow, white and baby blue which I thought coordinated well together.
The cake was one of my absolute favorite things at the party along with the backdrop and the balloon parachute, of course! The clouds and hot air balloon details on the cake made it very unique and it was so delicious. I also liked the banana detail on the smash cake.
The party was originally planned to be in our backyard but due to inclement weather we relocated the party to the garage. Guests enjoyed a Bounce House and played games such as Musical Chairs and Simon Says. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed awesome food as they celebrated with “Kurious Kingston”. The party was such a success due to the teamwork and support of family and friends who I consider my village! They are awesome!
