I've seen this theme floating around a few blogs and it suits this 'little man' of mine to a T. I love the mustaches and ties and I knew I wanted to incorporate a photo booth since it was such a big hit at the last party I planned. The twist I added to this little man party was the root beer float element. It all came about when I was trying to organize some of my party ware. I had a ton of disposable plastic coffee mugs that I needed to do something with...I had also recently seen a cake that a friend of mine had at a party. It was a mug of beer with a beer can suspended, pouring into the mug. Obviously, it wouldn't be appropriate to make a beer cake at a one year old's party so...root beer float cake it was!
Welcome to Jack's "little man" party
Since I don't have a cricut machine, I cut the ties out of scrapbook paper using a template that I drew freehand. The letters on the other hand...let's just say...carpal tunnel!

The photo booth was a fun activity especially because there aren't a lot of activities that one can do at a 1st birthday party. Besides, after a few root beer floats people started to let loose and have some fun in front of the camera.
The favors consisted of tie t-shirts for the little ones and root beer float kits for the older kids
Happy 1st birthday little man!!
