I decorated the mantle with photos I had taken from birth-12 months (one a month) and used a letter E to frame the center of the mantle. I used a wagon to hold all the gifts.
Since he is one and let's face it...all he will remember of his party is the pictures and what we tell him about it I purchased a Curious George birthday book and set up a station to have all the guests sign his book so he can remember who is there. I also had Curious George fruit snacks set out for all the guests to take as favors.
I decorated the highchair with red and yellow streamers and a banner I made with this name on it. I then tied a Curious George balloon to the top of the highchair.
All in all it was a very fun party and I think everyone had a blast! And there were not clogged toilets with the thanks to Charmin! ;)

Welcome to the Let's Be Friends Blog Hop!
A blog hop is a set time frame for current or aspiring bloggers to find new blogs and quality content. It is a great way to make new friends and find inspiration! It is also a fabulous way to promote your own blog and posts.
What a day to celebrate! This is the 123rd week of the Let's Be Friends blog hop! Thanks for joining us on this special day. Chelsee and Tiffany are extremely delighted to see the way this hop has grown and love to see your faces each week!
Join us every Tuesday at 7am (MST). This blog hop focuses on content. LINK UP YOUR FAVORITE POST from last week in this fun content-sharing blog hop! I love the idea of blog hopping, but I love the idea of reading posts and quality content on new blogs I've never been to even more. Instead of simply linking up your blog button, you are now able to link up your favorite post you recently wrote. Have a delicious recipe to share, DIY tutorial, or heartfelt post? Share it with us! All hosts and co-hosts put up some unique and fun content from the past week. Make sure to check them out. P.S.- you may still link up your blog button and blog name, but it is encouraged to link up your favorite post instead. You will get more page views and interest if you do so! Some of the most successful blog hops I have participate in focus on content rather than just exchanging follows. You never know who will become a loyal follower or pin that delicious new recipe you posted!
The BEST part of this blog hop? Each week there will be a WINNER! That's right, each week we will choose one lucky blog to feature from the previous week's hop. This hop receives thousands of page views every week, so your blog will have the chance to be center stage for free. You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win. Only those who link up a specific post are eligible to be featured! *You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win.
The last exciting change is that the co-host spots will now be available to all sponsors of The Dwelling Tree or Southern Beauty Guide. If you are interested in co-hosting the blog hop, email Tiffany or Chelsee about sponsorship opportunities and how to co-host the weekly hop!
There are a couple of great giveaways going on right now at Southern Beauty Guide and The Dwelling Tree. Go check them out! :)

Hi friends! This is Chelsee this week. I am constantly looking for new recipes for Taco Tuesday, because let's face it...eating the same boring tacos every Tuesday does get old. In last week's hop I came across this post from Reviews, Chews, and How-tos! I just knew I had to try this recipe and thought that my fellow Taco lovers would enjoy this as well. I have added this to the list of recipes to try and I plan on making this soon!
Keep posting awesome content! You make it so fun for us to read all your posts! If you can, please link up a specific post. It makes it easier for us to come and visit!
