I made vanilla cupcakes from Hello Cupcake and frosted them with simple white frosting with a hint of mint flavour. I found red and white patterned cupcake wrappers on sale at Michaels.
*see #2 for cupcake toppers.
2. Paper Decor
Etsy seller totfulmemories made the beautiful printable party package. Many thanks to mom for helping me assemble cupcake toppers, banners, cup labels and hanging signs.
3. Cake Pops
My mom gave me an early Christmas gift of the Cake Pops book by Bakerella so I thought I would give them a shot for the party.
4. Hot cocoa station
I made a vat of hot cocoa and kept it warm in my slow cooker. It was quite yummy on a cold December afternoon especially when paired with a cupcake or two.
5. Martha's Balls err tissue paper balls that is
I have been looking for an excuse to make these ever since I first saw them when I was wedding planning almost 5 years ago. I found my excuse.
6. Double Duty Decor
The snowballs are now hanging in the nursery as is this banner, I just couldn't bear to pack them away.
7. First Cupcake
She looks less thrilled than she was for most of her party.
8. The outfit
Who doesn't want to wear a tutu on your birthday...
What's a party without guests. We had many great friends come celebrate with us and showered the birthday girl with many wonderful gifts. I didn't manage to get a picture but we made foamie snowflake ornaments from a kit I found on sale at Michaels too...
10. Happy 1st birthday sweet girl!
