Not everyone needs two first birthday parties, because sometimes one is plenty!
Melissa Joan Hart celebrated her son Tucker’s first birthday over the weekend in a teddy bear picnic themed event at their Connecticut home.
And she got a ton of help from Pinterest! The actress explained:
“This is the first party I’ve gotten excited about in a while because I had the energy and the time to spend on it. My new love is pulling together a theme by posting ideas on my boards and making it come true. It was such an easy theme to work with and it’s all doable at home, which I liked.”
The invite list was pretty long, and included 35 kids and 20 adults!
But Melissa kept cool by serving simple things like mini PB&J sandwiches, fruit skewers and mac and cheese bites. As for the drinks, the kiddos got lemonade, and the adults enjoyed some yummy sangria. For dessert, they had glasses of milk with chocolate chip cookies on top and a specially made cake!
The decor matched the theme to a T, with blankets and stuffed animals for the babies and lawn games like bocce ball and sack races for the older kids.
Melissa also tried to be Earth conscious when planning. She explained:
