Party ’til the Cows Come Home

So my pal Katie came to me a few weeks before her baby’s first birthday with cows on the brain. She said “Holstein” so I played along until I could Google it. Ha! (and no I’m not joking). Duh. It’s the black and white ones–the ones you picture when someone says “cow.” Anyhoo, I whipped up some invitations, and she was sweet enough to share some party pics from the big night.

They had the party at a fave local pizza joint and brought in just the right elements to make this party udderly adorable with cow print, sky blue and green accents.

There is something about cow print that’s happy! Am I wrong? It just perks you right up. Those plate and napkins are too cute!

And speaking of too cute, this is Henry, the birthday boy, sporting a super festive cow-themed longall that Katie had made. Big bro, Thompson had a matching shirt.

Here’s the cake–love the grass details and the darling cow candle. I wish my handwriting was that sweet in pen, much less in icing!

…and Henry’s smash cake. I’ve seen the pictures. He really enjoyed helping himself to it!

The little guests went home with what else but cow cookies! I love this shot. The blue and green of the invitation against all that black and white–delicious.

And here’s one of the thank you notes.
