Milk Mustache 1st Birthday Party

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!

That cow deserves a close-up!

Need another look?  Yea, we thought so.

And as party favors, they gave out mustache cookies on a stick!  We’re betting they didn’t last long.  You try holding a cookie up to your nose without taking a bite of it…see how long you can resist!

This is what the display looked like at the party.  The smash cake and cupcakes took center stage with the goody bags and cookie favors off to the side.

And here’s the birthday boy with his smash cake!

Oh, and check out the giant photo of Declan in the background.  The older kids played “Pin the Mustache on Declan.”  LOVE IT!
