Mikaela’s 1st Birthday Party!

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog lately because September and October are big months for us!  But right in the middle of September, Mel’s baby girl turned 1 so we have to share a few photos.

We went with a rainbow themed party because color makes Mel happy, and Mikaela isn’t old enough to express any opinions yet. Although, we’re pretty sure she enjoyed herself. *wink*

Here’s the cake table set-up with Mikaela’s personalized birthday banner, cookie favors, goodie bags, and of course the cake!

Sparkly Enchanted Forest Fairy Cake

Disclaimer: You might need to put on your sunglasses before reading any further.  A very sparkly cake is featured here!

Earlier in the month, Rebecca asked us to create a sparkly cake for her daughters’ birthday party.  The theme would be enchanted forest fairies and the colors were pink and purple.  So, with Rebecca’s help, we designed this cake:

We topped it with a spray of ruffled polka dots that read “H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y” and a couple of elegant daisies.

The sides of the cake were adorned with edible numbers and name banners for the birthday girls, Reese & Hadley.  And the entire cake was very, very sparkly!

Check out that sparkle!  Every little girl’s dream!

Rebecca also needed some cupcakes for Reese to share with her class at school.  Two of Reese’s favorite things right now are the color purple and rainbow sprinkles.  And, so, these cupcakes were created:

Vanilla cupcakes with purple buttercream swirls, sprinkles, and edible stars.

And, as party favors, we created yellow and green glittery sugar cookies.  The girls at the party received the yellow ones, which were mounted on lollipop sticks and looked like fairy wands.  The boys received the green sparkly ones without the sticks (because we all know the boys would use them as weapons instead of magical wands).
