Our little Banks the Tank turned one this last weekend and we threw him a vintage camping themed party. Let's be honest, one year olds don't care about the party, nor do they even know it's their birthday, but we just like to celebrate the fact that we made it through the first year and everyone is happy, healthy, and better for it. My husband is a true outdoorsman so I thought he may also take a little pride in this party, after all it did take a few trips to Gander Mountain for some supplies.
The birthday boy's Man Cub tee is from Loved by Hannah and Eli and purchased at the best little boys' boutique in town, Roman and Leo. His pants are from Zara.
Our adult table was made festive with the help of flowers from Ohhvnlyday. Jacki is a great friend and also helps us out at the shop. She truly is a Jacki-of-all-trades.
This kids table was an impulsive trip to home depot and then sweet talking my dad in to making it for me. I knew I wanted a bigger table where all of the kids could sit together. We'll be renting out the table and chairs through the shop!
It's a bit of a tradition that the kids get a Pottery Barn chair with their name on it for their first birthday. I can envision Banks lounging in this with his apple jacks and milk watching Daniel Tiger in just a few short months.
The food set up perfectly against our barn wood wall in our office. I am lucky to have a sister-in-law who is an excellent cook and loves a good party herself, so she did all of the food with the exception of the cake. Big high five to Ashely Davidson for that one! I went on a bit of a hunt to search for the vintage enamel mugs. I found a few at an antique store, borrowed some from a friend, and found some at West Elm. Kim from Manayunk Calligraphy was so sweet to do the menu on the wood slice and the sign that says Camp Davidson that we hung on the door.
Happy Birthday Banky! We love you so!

As soon as we saw these velvet guestbooks and photo albums our knees started shaking and our hearts were pounding. These heirloom quality books are the obvious choice for today's bride and grooms to document notes, well wishes, and photographs from their Big Day. They are made in the USA using the highest quality book binding method, Smyth Sewn. These books are all the rage right now, and rightly so. There just isn't anything else on the market that compares to the beautiful artisan quality of these keepsakes.
We are the only store in Indiana that carries this gorgeous line and our prices are competitive to major online retailers like BHLDN. Click here to see and purchase them on our website. And if you don't want to take our word for it, check out the press Velvet Raptor has received from notable publications. (While you on their website, watch some of the videos to see how these books are made)
