We had 5 flavors: Regular, Kennel, Caramel, White Cheddar and Caramel Nut. We also had Cotton candy (from Target) and lemonade & Pizza. Another look of the buckets
The hubs and I with the little guy
As the centerpieces for the table we used these buckets from the Dollar spot, they where filled with good old fashion peanuts in a shell.
Above is part of the setting up. We use tickets (purchased at Target for $3.99) we gave these to people to use to get their food. Each item was labeled with the price. i.e: Pop Corn 3tks, Lemonade 2tks, etc. People seemed to really enjoy this too.
Just us...no comments (aren't we sexy?)
I was going nuts for aT-shirt I saw on Etsy...it had the number one attached with fabric and then they can customized with his name for $18+ shipping. Since we are on a budget I was trying to see what choices I had out there. I found something very similar (except for the customized lettering) from Target for $8.99. Score!
Another great buy was this over the door sign that we used to take pictures. It was $9.99 from Oriental Trading...soooo much fun. Here is the little guy and my Goddaughter.
Here is the cake, we had a major issue because some of the decoration flew away when we went to pick it up, but we manage to make it look decent. This is a pineapple and Guava cake!
On to the Goody bags. We got this from (yeap) TARGET again for $1 each. We put candy in it, mini plush animals from IKEA ($0.49) and a funky straw (dollar store) that had a tag saying "Thank you for coming to my 1st Birthday.

The party took place on a rental hall attached to a Fire House- think how cool would that be for an older kid to have a Red truck theme!. Their rental fee is $200 for 4 hours, tables, chairs, industrial Ice machine and kitchen access is included. The Hot dog machine rents for $25, but because it was a Birthday party the Hall was $150 and the Hot dog machine for free. So go ahead and ask around your neighbor Fire House, Elks, American Legion. They are very accommodating and have great prices.
