Graham’s First Birthday Party at Smith Playground

This weekend we celebrated Graham’s First Birthday Party with our family and friends. I can’t believe his first birthday party has come and gone – time sure flies when you are planning a first birthday! This party was fun for me because unlike Brooks and his January birthday, in September we can plan some fun things to do outside! For Graham’s first birthday I decided to rent out a space at Smith Playground and have some fun!
1stIf you aren’t familiar, Smith playground is a GIANT outdoor play space in the Fairmount Park area of Philadelphia. This post is not sponsored by them in any way, we paid to rent the space – we just love it so much and so do the boys – it’s an awesome place to bring your kids – especially on the large wooden slide {you can see it in the background of the above photo}

We rented out a side porch of the Smith Playground house and got there early to set up – unfortunately it was the hottest day EVER of all time on Saturday, the day of the party, so everyone was pretty much melting the entire time. BUT the heat didn’t really seem to bother the littles – they all wanted to PLAY!

My amazing friend + neighbor Kelly {Hi Kelly!} made this adorable Insta -Graham frame for the party – how cute is this?! Everyone LOVED taking pictures in it! Ha! Especially with the birthday boy!

And the wonderful folks at DiBruno Brothers sent an amazing spread of cheese boards, antipasto trays and desserts as well – for the adults to enjoy at the kids party! More on that later but seriously, check out these amazing spreads! I was in cheese heaven! spreadAnother huge thank you to DiBruno Brothers for the delicious eats! Everyone was obsessed with this table – it was so delicious!

After a morning of play and some delicious eats, it was time for the main event – CAKE!


This was Graham’s first real sugar experience and he had his eyes on the prize!


Big Bro was quick to show him how it all goes down in cake town! Brooks had been talking about birthday cake for weeks! Ha! I have no idea how much cake B had but I’m pretty sure it was too much! Oh well, your little brother only turns one, once – right?

Get in there, kid!


We are doing a real cake smash this week – like we did with Brooks – so be on the lookout for that this week. Two cakes for G in one week ! Lucky little!

Here are some more pictures from Graham’s First Birthday!

And a little #ootd love – I picked up this dress on super sale and I thought it was perfect for the party! It was so hot out this dress was cool, flowy and comfortable – plus I love all the colors and the fun print! Very festive for a kids birthday party, right? ootd
