Wild One 1st Birthday Party

Posted on October 06, 2015 by Tamra Wallerstein

Celebrating our son's first birthday was also a celebration for us surviving the first year as parents.  It was a "Where the Wild Things Are" theme that captured all the great illustrative and adventurous qualities of the book.  Check out all the fun decorations I created for the event.


I drew my son into the iconic "Where the Wild Things Are" forest illustration by creating a large 4 ft by 12 ft outdoor banner.



                                  I made Max's boat out of cardboard boxes and duct tape.  





I illustrated the "Where the Wild Things Are" style leaves out of various shades of green paper and strung them along our pool fence with green twine.


                              I created a mixture of different leaf prints for his name Marquee.  


Of course my outfit, a leaf print romper, needed to fit the theme of the party.
