let’s plan a party.

July 11, 2013 in Ari Davis,birthday

As if being a mom isn’t still shock enough, I have an almost one year old.

Seriously. In friggin’ shock right now. It’s been almost ONE year.

Okay, okay… I know I’m jumping the gun a little. Three months is a little far away, but the big day will be here before I know it!

So obviously I’ve been party planning already. A Yo Gabba Gabba party is a definite must.

He loves the Yo Gabba Gabba songs. His little round face just lights up at the sound of one of the songs. It’s totally adorbs.

I’ve thought about Pinteresting the crap out of this party. But I’m confident in the fact that, in doing so, I would be in over my head — and that I will ultimately just stress myself out. … enter Etsy…

Ari birthday plan

After stalking the crap out of everything Yo Gabba Gabba on Etsy, I’m super grateful for all of those super crafty people who make it a thousand times easier to plan a YGG party for a one-year old. PS. If you’re not a mom and/or have never seen an episode of crack Yo Gabba Gabba, here’s what you need to know:

  • It’s complete and utter nonsense.
  • Brobee is a grade-A nut-job. OK, maybe just a bit bipolar.
  • The phrase “There’s a party in my tummy!” and “I like fish!” will cause the cutest full-blown belly laughs.
  • your coworkers & spouse will grow to despise this show because you are always singing the songs.

Also, I realize it’s a bit excessive for a first birthday party, but I’m totally dying over this cake:


He needs it, am I right?? Ha! I know a place that would make it gluten free, healthy AND cute!

I know it’s *just* a first birthday… but there’s something to be said about keeping another human alive for a full  year, right??

My parents through me the most over the top first birthday so don’t feel bad 🙂 I had this huge cake with a baby on top, we had the party at my grandparents lake house and both sides of my family came for the entire memorial day weekend. I can’t believe your son will be 1 in just 3 months!!!! I feel like I was just reading your pregnancy posts not that long ago.

first birthday parties are supposed to be a bit ridiculous and awesome.

also one of my favorite bloggers had a YGG birthday party for her daughter and it was adorable, maybe she can help with some inspiration as well: http://www.thespohrsaremultiplying.com/family-and-friends/a-very-gabba-birthday/
