My oldest little boy will be four on Sunday. Four. Gulp. Where does the time go?
Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we, and revisit his very first birthday party.
My husband is a Jimmy Buffett fan; he’s a total Parrothead. When we started talking about Harrison’s first party, he jokingly said he wanted a Jimmy Buffett party. I laughed it off at first…but the wheels in my head quickly started spinning, and this “A Pirate Looks at One: Baby Buffett Birthday” was born.
Grab a lei and join the party! It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
I asked my friend Joy to help me whip up the invitations. She helped bring my vision to life with these fun, bright invitations full of references to Buffett and his music.
Here’s a photo of how they came together; I really love the “Baby Buffett” band embellishment.
And, here are a few more of the fun Buffett party details. I wish I had better pictures, but I had no idea at the time I’d want to blog this three years later.
“Cheeseburger in Paradise” cake, “Margaritaville” cupcakes, complete with candy limes and sugar salt rims, and “Son of a Sailor” sugar cookies.
Swedish fish and goldfish…”Fins to the Left, Fins to the Right”.
Parrothead party favors.
And the birthday boy himself.
Want to throw your own Jimmy Buffett backyard birthday party? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
