Hi friends! We are back to blogging! And today I want to share with you all the details and secrets of Benji’s Lumberjack party we created this past Sunday!
So when looking around for Benji’s theme party I was very drawned to the idea of a sequel from his baby shower! Remember that Woodland babyshower last year? So when I came accross the lumberjack theme it suddenly clicked. After consulting with mommy @whydott and got the green light, it was a go and party planning started!
This time the talented Neydi from Neydi Photography joined in the fun!! It literally changed the entire game!! Her eye for capturing every detail and making Benji super comfortable for him to even model for her was out of this world! I highly recommend to book a professional photographer for all your sessions/events! Even better book Neydi Photography! She will NOT dissapoint!!
It really was all about this table! Our 6ft stained backdrop made the perfect prop of the photoshoot! We painted our 2ft marquee letters spelling BENJI in red so they could stand out more! Cake was ordered to be in shape of a Log from Nissi Cake! And I bought the little plastic axe on amazon(my fave “store” everrr!!) Cookies were from @ Sweet Moments by Daisy, as always flawless and perfect for the theme!!
Now, let me tell you a secret! Since it was just fam, I didn’t want to spend a lot on desserts! But still needed the table to look full. Soo HEB was my go to place for this! Did you know that their dozen cupcakes are about $7!? Well I bought a dozen of chocolate cupcakes and tweaked it a little bit by adding chocolates, marshmellows and graham cookies! And all of the sudden I had “smore’s” cupcakes! (Pinterest, I tell ya!🤣) I also bought cookies, 1/2 dozen glazed dounuts, brownies and small cinammon roll bites! I spent less that $25 an all of that! #yourewelcome 😜
Tables & Centerpieces:
The feel of the party overall was more like a birthday dinner since it was just an intimate family gathering! My mom looked around ideas for centerpieces and she came up with a camp fire created by rocks and LED candles underneath! It was just awesome and pefect for the tables!

As if this kid was not photogenic enough, he WORKED that camera! And I think he and Neydi clicked just fine! She really is the baby whisperer!! Look at those angles!! Im in love all over again! Aren't you??
I could not pass up the opportunity to have something fun to do for my older kids, so the "Lumberjack Training Camp" was born! Throwing Axe, Apple Picking and Hammering! So much fun!!!
Benji rocked that beard!
