Forrest’s 1st birthday fiesta
Kristina’s littlest guy Forrest turned one at the end of June, and she threw him a super colorful birthday fiesta to celebrate. Fiesta theme is always a winner, if you ask us. Big thanks to Kristen of Chris & Kristen Photography who came to take the lovely photos.
A taco bar is always a winner. Their amazing nanny Lucy made 4 kinds of salsa, which made the tacos 100% more legit.
Those flowers were actually from West Elm, on super sale a month or so ago. If anyone is interested in buying them, leave a comment and Kristina will get in touch. She has ~50.
They hired a neighborhood fruit vendor to come cut fruit for everyone at the party. What little kid doesn’t like a huge bowl full of fruit? It was so delicious.
Birthday boy likes it, that’s for sure.
Their teepee is from House Inhabit on Etsy (it’s such a good one!). Kristina used some leftover indigo from another project to dye a bunch of fabric for pillows and table cloths and miscellaneous decor.
Those pretty, custom banderitas were from Ay Mujer on Etsy. She truly makes the most beautiful papel picado pieces. Her banners, flags, and garlands are little works of art and perfect for any festive event.
For favors, Kristina picked up maracas, worry dolls, and jacob’s ladder toys downtown and tied them up with indigo scraps.
How yummy does that look?! Nothing more refreshing on a hot day.
She has tons of those buttons leftover if anyone would like to have hem for their own party. Leave a comment and Kristina will get in touch.
Forrest’s cake (and every cake for each of her boys’ birthdays so far!) was this amazing carrot cake recipe that Kristina has been making for years.
Happy birthday little Forrest! You are such a joy.
