A Reason To Celebrate!

Here is my beautiful baby girl on her 1st Birthday sporting a little hair candy from Sweet Harper! She had the best time and her brothers weren't too far behind...they took it upon themselves to "show her how to have a birthday party"! So cute...from blowing out the candle,
to eating the cupcake, boxing the balloons, and opening the presents, they stood faithfully by her side, leading her every step of the way :)

And now, onto the decorations! The centerpiece was inspired by a recent "How To" post from Jessica over at Party Box Design (who was also featured here earlier this year!).

I decided to go with easy to eat cuppies instead of a full sheet cake. The cake is a french vanilla creme with sprinkles and the frosting is a luscious whipped buttercream that I colored with a small amount of sugar-free Kool Aid of all gave the frosting the prettiest pastel pink shade and imparted a slightly fruity taste that was yummy nummy!

The dessert table was rounded out by a marshmallow sucker tree and milk glass containers filled with pretzel rods, both of which were dipped in chocolate ganache and covered in pink and white candies.

Finally, what's a party without a fabulous favor? My theme for Ellia's Birthday Bash was "Spring Fling". I went with colors in shades of pink, lime, and pale yellow. So it was a natural fit for the favors to include a wonderful variety of herbal seed packets, to which I added a colorful array of old fashioned gumballs...a tasty treat for now and later!


  1. What a sweet, little girl! Happy Birthday Ellia:)
