I had to share my son's 1st birthday theme... since his name is DEAN we felt a Dean Martin inspired birthday party was a must!
We specifically targeted the song 'That's Amore' and went the pizza route with food and some featured decor pieces. It was easy-peasy because we blasted a Dean Martin playlist from Spotify, served New York style pizza (which was delivered), designed Dean's smash cake to replicate a pizza (Thanks Britt Bakes) had pizzas inspired cookie takeaways with a message saying "Thanks for Bein' a Pizza Dean's Year". We found the cutest gold banner that read "I love you to pizzas" that hung above the makeshift bar in the garage - yes, this was a garage party! The tables were lined with red & white checkered table runners, displaying photo pedestal frame centerpieces from Ikea for like .99/each. We found a wholesale site that sold personal pizza size boxes that we used as risers and centerpieces and now my son uses when creating Playdoh "pizzas". It was a truly lovely event and outside-the-box theme that everyone loved! Most importantly, it didn't break the bank.
