A Backyard, Bedtime-Inspired First Birthday Party

Christina Wright of Simply Modern Weddings usually plans events featuring a bride, a groom, and lots of Champagne. But for her son's first birthday bash, she proved she's equally adept at throwing parties for a decidedly underage set! Christina chose to theme the party around pajamas and bedtime stories, her son James's favorite thing, and set up a "bathtub" and story-time stations.

"We've been reading James (also known as J5, since he's the fifth) bedtime stories since before he was born, and it's become something very special," Christina says. "It's the time where we wind down from playing, he snuggles up in our arms with his cozy pajamas, and we are then transported to a land of imagination in his stories."
