Sneak Peak, Matthew's First Birthday Photo Shoot

I can't believe my little guy will be one in 25 days!! I had his photos done early so we could have them on the invitations & have them done before his party :) I absolutely LOVE how they turned out. Zebra Gallerie did an amazing job, it was WELL worth the money. I'm so excited for Matthew's first birthday party & to share it with you guys. & for all of you followers who have been following along since my pregnancy, thank you, I LOVE reading your comments. It's crazy to think I have an almost one year old. More pictures to come soon, & party pictures will be up around the end of this month :) 

For anyone that wants to know, Props:

Highchair- Bought off Craigslist for 25$, used Hobby Lobby Craft torquise paint & then spray painted with a matte finish
Cake- Regular vanilla box cake, used 3 circle pans, stacked the cakes on top of each other & then I cut around them to make them smaller with a sandwich knife. The banner was made from two wooden kabob sticks & construction paper
Hat, Boots, Rope- The hat is a hat I got in Cabo, Mexico, the boots were actually antique kids boots that my grandma had as a decoration that happened to be the perfect size, & the rope is from Home Depot
Basket- Target
One Banner- Blue thread (super thick), Banner from Hobby Lobby, I painted the letters with the same paint I used for the high chair
Tassle Banner (behind highchair)- Made from tissue paper, there are lots of tutorials online, just type in (Tissue paper garland tutorial)
Matthew (One) Outfit- Bella Claire Baby 
Hat, Chevron Tie outfit- Peanuts Boutique

  2. These are so adorable!!! Great job on all the decorations! I've been looking for a wooden high chair but everyone wants like $75 for one! Still on the search!
