Ok, it’s official (…well, not really). The most popular theme for a 1st birthday party in 2012 is Mickey or Minnie Mouse! And while it’s easy to recreate a design over and over, we also love when people bring us a new design to try!
Another friend of my daughter’s turned 1 this weekend! AJ’s parents both coach baseball and softball so AJ has spent much of his young life on the field. And the kid loves to throw! He throws anything and everything. He even pretends to throw when there’s nothing around for him to get his hands on. And he’s got a good arm too!
Anyway, it was only fitting that they throw him a baseball-themed 1st birthday party!
We’ve been seeing a LOOOOOOT of Mickey Mouse birthday cakes lately. And, while we love Mickey, we were thrilled when Natasa asked for a Minnie Mouse cake! Alright! We’re talking sweet, girly, polka dots, bows, and PINK!
Having a baby is great. Aside from all the snuggles, kisses, giggles, and high-fives I get to enjoy each day, there are other great bonuses too. Like getting to go to 1st birthday parties! Between now and September, I figure Mikaela will go to about 10 first birthday parties!
Perhaps she’s popular! Or perhaps her Mommy just makes the cakes…but who cares?! First birthday parties are great! And they’re all so different – so if you’re planning one, keep an eye on this blog for some great ideas.
I love the theme of Declan’s party – Milk Mustache! How cute!?
We made cupcakes with little black mustaches and Declan’s smash cake was a cow!
Here’s a sweet little cake we made for Maddie’s first birthday.
The cake was iced in light green buttercream and was decorated with buttercream grass and white gum paste daisies. And the ladybug topper was made of Rice Krispies Treats and covered with fondant.
Debbie gave me artistic freedom on the ladybug so instead of going juvenile with the face, I went a little more adult. I tried to make her look like a sweet little lady – one Maddie might see in one of her storybooks.
