Bug Themed Birthday Party

Jim and Trevor
Last month my youngest nephew turned one–I can’t believe how fast he’s growing up! He took his first steps recently and it reminded me, I never got to share the awesome party his mom and dad (Brooke and Jim) put together for him. They really ran with the bug theme they came up with and everything was absolutely adorable! Here are a few highlights from the party.

Nothing says a bug party like a caterpillar made out of colorful balloons!

The birthday boy, along with his friends and cousins, loved the orange bug/butterfly net favors, courtesy of the dollar store!

The firefly mason jars centerpieces were my favorite detail of the party! The lights were another dollar store find by Trevor's mom!

Even the food incorporated the bug theme, like these caterpillar grape kabobs and lady bug chocolate covered strawberries. I'm disappointed I didn't take more pictures of all the themed food Trevor's parents and the rest of the guests put together including dirt (Oreo) dessert, complete with gummy worms!

A photo timeline of Trevor's first year was put together using string, clothes pins and fly swatters. How cute is that?! Here he 0-3 months old...

After all the yummy food and presents, it was time for his smash cake. Here's the birthday boy with his beautiful mom, Brooke. He was getting sleepy from all the excitement but still was smiling as usual. What better attire for his smash cake than his birthday suit? We'll call this the "before"...

Everyone had a wonderful time at Trevor’s first birthday party. His parents hosted a wonderful event and I just had to share all of the adorable-ness with you!
