Remember me mentioning that Heston’s Birthday party was packed with amazing details and that his mother was the next Martha Stewart?
Check these out. What a great first birthday party! I think Heston’s mother, Rebecca, should moonlight as a party planner! It probably doesn’t hurt that she’s an incredible architect, so she has an eye for detail!
The theme was jungle animals and exploration - lots of green and orange and bright colors-
LOVED this cake from Edgar’s bakery that Rebecca designed for them and they implemented. I overheard her telling the story of how she wanted the pretzels on there and that they were probably scratching their heads on that request… It turned out adorable and SO delicious! You can’t go wrong with an Edgar’s cake. Don’t tell my personal trainer!!!
The food table was packed with yummy stuff!
I loved this outdoor dining setup!
In case someone didn’t want cake, she had an ice cream table! Notice the cute sugar cones she made-
Heston’s homemade smash cake… which he LOVED by the way! - in case you missed it.
Even the lime green punch and the tea glasses were in on the theme-
This customized birthday banner was probably my very favorite part! Rebecca took pictures of Heston throughout the year, converted them all to a sepia/b&w color, had them printed on cardstock with rounded corners. Each picture had a letter on it to spell out “Happy Birthday!” She hung each from ribbon and attached the ribbon to twine. So creative!
The birthday boy got LOTS of fun presents!
And last but not least - the cool favors! Homemade animal crackers (Heston’s maternal grandmother made those) and custom bookmarks thanking guests for attending the big event! In the middle here is Heston’s birthday bib which his paternal grandmother made. This family is full of creative and crafty people! Heston’s grandmother, Jane, co-owns a monogramming company here in Birmingham called 2 Stitches. She does beautiful work.

Thanks Rebecca and Tom for such a wonderful party! I loved being a part of it!
