I cannot believe that Uriah is already 5! It feels like we were just bringing him home from the hospital yesterday, smitten with love and figuring out how the heck to take care of a newborn baby. Time has absolutely flown by! This year for Uriah’s birthday, we wanted to go big – after all, you’re only young once, and seeing the magic in your child’s eyes is priceless.
With so much going on, I decided to enlist the help of Elegant Events to help bring our vision to life and handle all of the little details. Uriah is currently obsessed with Sonic the Hedgehog and we thought it would make for a fun theme, so we went with it!
Sonic the Hedgehog Themed Birthday Party
Before I dive into all of the details of Uriah’s birthday, I want to start off by saying that planning a party can be overwhelming, especially if you’re a perfectionist! I truly couldn’t have put together a better party without the help of Elegant Events – their team is incredible! From the decor to the food, they truly made the day so special.
Since we opted to have Uriah’s birthday party in our backyard, I did want to go big with decorations so the party felt extra special and not like every other backyard BBQ we have! To do this, we incorporated both Sonic the Hedgehog-themed decor, as well as stuck to a blue, white, yellow, and red color scheme to keep the flow going. We set up a backdrop for all of our photos, complete with a fun balloon arch and clear blocks that spelled out Uriah’s name.
We also wanted to keep our guests outside as much as possible so we set up tables on the lawn with blue tablecloths and yellow balloon centerpieces featuring a Sonic the Hedgehog cut out!
Our favorite detail? The bouncy slide! Bounce houses are always so much fun at birthday parties, not to mention they keep the kids entertained, and the one we got fit the color theme perfectly!
Who doesn’t love birthday cake? For Uriah’s birthday party, we obviously had to do a Sonic the Hedgehog-themed cake and it truly couldn’t have come out better if you ask me!
A Recap of the Party
Thankfully the weather for Uriah’s 5th birthday party was absolutely perfect and spending the time outside felt so good! Prior to the party, we had a little family time to enjoy the bouncy slide and take some pictures together. As you can probably tell, Uriah had a blast and it melted my heart seeing him so excited for his big day!
