“roads…where we’re going, we don’t need roads”

he’s obsessed, i tell you! the hat, the guitar, mr. fusion, the shoes. oh, and he sings “johnny b. goode” on the regular.

if you know me personally, you know that little mr. re-nest #1 is currently obsessed with the “back to the future” trilogy. obsessed doesn’t even feel like a strong enough word to describe the sitch in our house right now. there are #bttf things everywhere. ever since the boys got their 3d printer at Christmas, we’ve been printing every type of marty mcfly-inspired, doc brown-focused goodies you can imagine.

so, at least when #1 threw down the birthday party gauntlet (again) this year, i felt pretty confident we’d have what we needed to design + style a party for my sweet boy. (note: we did scale it back this year. we did a family-only party this year, which was really nice and laid back. for some reason, i just felt like this was the right thing for us to do this year.)

i started where i always do…getting inspo from pinterest. there are some examples of “back to the future” parties out there (mostly from october 21, 2015), but nothing for a nine-year-old boy. so, we kind of did it our way, and i have to say that it turned out pretty awesome (and, my boy was h-a-p-p-y, which was all i wanted to see!)

so, here goes….the party in all its glory for our sweet, incredibly tall, generous + loving boy!

mr. + i found the marty mcfly replica hat at a super cool decades store in myrtle beach! (p.s. how is my baby NINE???)

i was so stoked to try this “88” backdrop! it was super easy (there will be a separate blog post coming with the how-to!)

because every #BTTF party requires the movie poster + a flux capacitor

the original hover board. (again, a replica that the mr. found online). my fave part of this pic is that super cute framed print made by #1’s mama.

pure deliciousness. thank you deanna for always coming through with your cakes!

so, my #favoritelittlegirl was coming. she needed some swag to wear!
