Ryder's 1st Rodeo - Raising Up Wonder

Ryder's 1st Rodeo

I'm not crying! You're crying!

My baby is one. O N E! He's given us one year of pure joy! I love his little face so much I can hardly stand it. Every year I tell myself we're going to have a "small" simple party. But I can't help myself! I love getting everyone together! I love having a vision and then seeing it come to life. We were planning on doing a lumberjack themed party but I saw an adorable cowboy print fabric at Hobby Lobby and it totally inspired me! It worked out too because it would have been way to hot for lumberjack flannels!

We had they party at my husbands Grandma's house. She has the most amazing view!

One of my favorite decorations were these banners from One Oliver! The shop owner Deanna is so sweet and made the custom rodeo banner just for the party! Check her out here! Etsy: www.oneoliver.com

Oh this table! I wanted to keep it up forever! The fabric on the back drop is the one that inspired they whole theme! Hobby Lobby had the metal tray, "one" balloons, mini hay bales and the cowboy hat! I also got the burlap pennants and ribbon for the high chair garland there too. 

These cupcake toppers were PERFECT for the party. I found them on Etsy from Where The Green Grass Grows. Again the shop owner Andrea was so sweet to customize them with Ryder's name. You can check out her amazing shop here:

I made the garland, can you tell? lol! It was fun to make and super easy! 

This letterboard sign has been a staple in our house, I use it for EVERYTHING! This on is from: https://rivi-co.myshopify.com/

Ryder's shirt made for the cutest little outfit. I wanted to have him wear something fun but it was over 100 degrees out so I didn't want him to get too hot. This tee was so soft and comfy for him to play in at the party! I'll treasure it forever! You can find this tee and other themed shirts here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AddiesThings?ref=l2-shopheader-name
Andrea got us our personalized shirt super quick! She was so great to work with. Here is here: https://www.instagram.com/addiesthings/

I have had the best time being this boys mama you guys. He is SO SWEET! Boys and their mamas have such a special bond and I am so blessed.

That's all for now friends! I hope you had fun checking out Ryder's 1st Rodeo. Now lets hope this year doesn't go as fast as the first!

In love, Rachel
