Bow-Tie First Birthday Party For Boys

Sometimes a party just captures us at the first glance, and in this case, we were sold the second we spotted this bow-tie-inspired first birthday's amazing invitations. "I worked and worked on his invitations and could not for the life of me create something worthy of his very first birthday. I knew I wanted them to be tactile, not just a piece of paper. I wanted them to be Southern and sweet and with the personality of a playful little boy," says mom and designer Emily Ley.

Luckily, Emily has talented friends, including Amber Moon of Pitbulls and Posies, who dreamed up an adorable silhouette invite. "I took a photo of Brady with my iPhone and sent it to Amber, she traced his sweet little head, and created these little wooden silhouettes which she (by hand, no less!) screen-printed with the party information. She also designed and created box liners to hold the little silhouette."

The awesome invite introduced Brady's first birthday party in grand fashion, and the party itself was full of cute bow-tie details. "We decided we wanted it to be sweet and young and classic . . . so we chose a Southern Picnic theme and used bow ties to tie the entire affair together," Emily says. Keep clicking to check out all the details of the spectacular invites and the sweet party!
