Whitney’s son celebrated her boy Levi’s first birthday with a big birthday bash. “Levi was so excited to be turning one that anytime we said “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” or asked him how old he was, he would shoot that 1 finger up in the air!” That’s so precious!
As you can see on Levi’s little outfit, the theme of his birthday was Little Red Wagons. “The inspiration came from his Poppy (my husband’s Dad), who has been working for months on building Levi a red wagon for his first birthday,” Whitney of The Glamorous Housewife said. “When thinking up theme ideas for his big day, I just couldn’t help myself – red wagons were the way to go!” When guests approached the front door, two little wagons filled with flowers were there to greet them! The entry way was full of fresh flowers as well.
I had two banners hanging up in the living room. A big “Happy Birthday” hanging from the giant arch and a cute little “Levi” on the fireplace.
Levi opened his gifts in front of the fireplace, so it was a festive little place to be!
“We had three rows of the cutest little bitty red wagons filled with retro type candy on this table. Inside the wagon were candies that were famous when red wagons were in their prime! Cracker Jacks, Hershey Bar, Chuckles, Boston Baked Beans, Sugar Babies, Bit-o-Honey and Clove gum. Each guest got to take one home with them.”
The birthday table featured a red and white striped tablecloth and red and blue candies and drinks. Perfect white balloons with red wagons on them floated overhead.
“The tablescape was so much fun to plan. I found a lot of the glass jars for the candy buffet at Hobby Lobby for half off, and I also had a few already. We filled them with red and aqua candy, the colors of the party. We had Hot Tamales, M&M’s, Rock candy, Sixlets, Twizzlers, Jelly Beans and Cherry Sours. I had buckets for everyone to fill with candy and take home with them.”
Whitney’s absolute favorite part of the table was this Radio Flyer wagon filled with Jones Soda. “And do you notice who is on this soda pop? Levi!”
A local bakery made his wagon cake and his smash cake.
“We ordered a wagon cookie cutter online and had a lady from my hometown make them. She said they were so hard to work with
because of the handle. We ordered about 40 cookies and by the time the party rolled around over half of them had the handles broken off. But they were just so darn cute!”
