Bow Tie Brunch 1st Birthday Part 1

This past weekend we celebrated two very special little boys. I picked a pretty simple theme for their party. I wanted the colors to be red and navy blue, and then I thought bow ties would be perfect with it.

The chalkboard prints were ordered from the Etsy shop Kays Custom Boutique, and she was a pleasure to work with. I printed them at staples and bought frames for them from Michaels. 

The burlap covered number 1's came from Hobby Lobby, the cake stands were from World Market, and the red boxes were from Target.  I wrapped foam board from Staples in fabric from Jo-Ann Fabrics. Then I cut out some cardstock to create the large bow ties.  The garland is from Shop Sweet Lulu.  
All of the signs were made by Nico & Lala.  I had make your own yogurt parfaits.
I made two quiches. The one of the left is the Pioneer Woman's Cowboy Quiche, and the other one is a simple spinach quiche I found in a cookbook.
We had waffles in cups with syrup. Ty and Davis loved the waffles without syrup of course.
My mom made beautiful fruit kabobs, and everyone enjoyed them.

My favorite part was the mimosa bar. I printed off mimosa juice labels from the blog Under the Table and Dreaming.

I purchased stemless Libbey champange glasses from Amazon, and added some bow tie stickers from Michaels to them.  The polka dot runner was from Wynn's 2nd birthday party. I was glad I was able to reuse a few items from that event.

We had some delicious doughnuts, and I placed them on a suitcase I purchased from Elizabeth and Co's tag sale.
Little milk jugs were filled with various types of milk, and they are from Shop Sweet Lulu.  I put the mini cereal boxes in some large paper ice cream cups.
All of the printed items were from Nico and Lala. We ordered the delicious cupcakes from a local bakery called Snickerdoodles. 
This was Ty's smash cake. He made it seem like he did not even touch the front of the cake. The bow was still intact with several minutes of shoving the cake into his mouth ticking by.
Davis' smash cake was the opposite color scheme wise. He loved it too. That is until he shoved some of it in his eye.
We also had these beautiful cookies by the Etsy Shop The Green Apron and they were so delicious and so pretty.

Here are Rob and I with our dynamic duo. We love Ty and Davis so much. They seriously are a joy to have and are such fun little guys. They certainly had a great time at their party. I will share some more details from the party sometime this week.
