Let the party planning begin!!!

It's crazy to believe that Lincoln will be turning one in just a few short weeks! I have started to jump right into full party planning mode!
As bittersweet Lincoln's first birthday is for me, it really is going to be such a happy time. This year has been the best year of my life. It has also probably been the hardest...caring for a little boy is definitely not easy, but definitely rewarding :)
One of my super awesome e-friends made these invites for Lincoln's birthday bash. And yes...I whited out the important info ;) We're having two parties for our sweet boy. One in RI, and one in CT. It's just way easier that way.
The theme for his party is going to be....GIRAFFES [of course!] :) :) :)
I actually found party supplies that are strickly "just giraffes" from http://1stwishes.com. It was very hard to find something that contained "only giraffes!" Most supplies had all of the jungle/safari animals. But seriously, how stinkin' cute are these?! My BFF suggested we [attempt] to make cupcakes similar to these for the event....

I'm going to try to make these tissue paper poms. I got a tutorial, and it seems relatively easy...but we'll see! I'm going to use blue and yellow for colors, to match the giraffe theme :)

He will be getting a birthday cake too [of course!] One of my Mom's good friends is making the one for his party in RI, and one of my friends is making the one for the party in CT. I cannot wait to see what she comes up with...she can make cakes like Buddy on Cake Boss!!!

I also have ordered a personalized 1st Birthday shirt for Lincoln. I don't have a picture to share as of yet, but seriously, you just might die of cuteness :) :) :)
I am also going to incorporate a little slide show type thing on a digital picture frame of Lincoln's first year to having running throughout the parties.
So, that's what I have so far. If anyone has any ideas they'd like to share, please send them my way!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
