Set the Table

After setting up the One Happy Dude photo backdrop, lets move onto the table decorations! I always use one of our eco-friendly paper table cloths.  These come in 6 great shades and are completely compostable. I grabbed a black table cloth for this party.

For the smiley tableware I stuck with the checkered theme! I grabbed these cute checkered cocktail napkins and these solid yellow paper plates.  We have an entire line of black & white checkered partyware, check it out here.

I love these cute doodled wooden utensils. I like to use wooden cutlery for birthday parties to reduce the plastic waste!
