A Charlie Brown Themed First Birthday Party!

charlie brown birthdayGood grief, Fares is one!

When I began telling friends that I was planning Fares’ first birthday party, many of them hoped it was a Charlie Brown theme. Growls and extreme disappointment followed when I told them it wouldn’t be, but have no fear, ROAR! A dinosaur theme, it will be.

During Pinterest research, borderline psychotic binge pinning, I stumbled upon a Peanuts birthday party theme. One pin lead to another, and I found myself creating a new board, home of 74 pins. Results of successful research, if you ask me. 😉 Lo and behold, the theme was changed.

Fun fact! Friends and family call Fares, Charlie Brown, because they think he resembles him. I don’t really see it, but do you?charlie brown resemblance

Allow me to introduce you to the guest of honor, Charlie Brown Fares!

All crying aside, it was a fun party to plan!

Almost everything was hand-made and pretty much EVERYTHING was from the dollar store, from the tissue pom poms, to the garland.

I had bought cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby for $1 each and wrapped them in printed comic strips to create his name. Cost me less than 6 dollars. Woot woot!
