We had my son’s first birthday party yesterday. If you’ll remember back to last month, I decided on a jungle theme by making is Jungle Invitations. I think the party was a big success, and I’m plum worn out, so for today’s post I’m just going to share some pictures of the homemade cupcakes, decorations, and birthday card from the party. It’s still somewhat of a crafty blog post, right? 🙂
All iced up with green buttercream frosting! I used a recipe from Bakerella for the icing. It was really yummy!
I was going to buy Gavin a cute 1st birthday card at Target (they have the best cards!), but when I mentioned that to my DH he said, “Why aren’t you making his card like you did his birthday invitations?” I’m not a big card maker, but I decided the challenge had been issued and this is what I came up with…
Cute ribbon, eh? Many thanks to my friend Amber who gave it to me along with some other super cute ribbon last year! I’ve been itching to use this ribbon in just the right place.
The party was loads of fun, Gavin had a blast and has a ton of new toys and clothes, and we are ALL partied out at my house. Time to take it easy for a bit. 🙂
