Winter ONEderland Birthday Party: Top Ten Tuesday

So this is coming 6 weeks late but here's a recap of the 1st birthday party for our little girl.

1. Cupcakes

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... 

9. Friends

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!
