Fiesta-themed birthday parties are always a good idea, if you ask us. But we especially love the party Julie planned for her son Henry’s first at Chicken Scratch in Dallas with it’s modern Mexican details and Aztec-influenced graphics.

As Julie says, the theme was perfect for her family, as she and her husband were married in Santa Fe and Henry was conceived in Mexico. Oooh la la! Great place to make a baby.

Most of the decor was handmade by Julie and her hubs (love when Papa gets in on the DIY!), including the favor bags, potato stamped cups, triangle cupcake toppers, garland, and hand-painted cacti and aloe containers.

The potato stamped cups are such a perfectly simple way to add a bit of design to a party, aren’t they?

Look at all of these beautiful mamas and babies. It’s the best to have friends with babies the same age.

Brooklyn’s, Fort Greene is such a great spot for a family photo sesh, especially if that’s the neighborhood in which you live. The very fun Matt, Blair, and blue-eyed Teddy do, so after Karen Kristian snapped photos of them inside their beautiful apartment, she made sure to capture them at some of their favorite neighborhood spots.

Kelly Christine Photo & Bianca of Little Bean Shop know how holidays with kids can go. They’re aware that sometimes we run out of time and miss out on buying those fun Halloween costumes, and they know how often we say we’re going to DIY something elaborate, but just don’t get around to it. This simple DIY bunny costume though, is a total win. It’s as simple as tracing the patterns onto felt, cutting, gluing, adding colored stitching (if desired), and attaching a pretty ribbon. Pretty sure your kiddo will be happy to trick-or-treat with a bunny mask and fluffy tail!
