My baby turned ONE last month and we had a little party for her a couple of weeks ago. I thought I would guide you through her special day.
You are cordially invited...
Are you getting hungry? Just dig in!
We had crackers with cheese and pepperoni, veggies and dip and some fruit and berries. The guests were also munching down some Swedish bullar (those are the cinnamon/cardamom rolles you might spot there. They are not covered in salt. It's sugar. Pearl Sugar), popcorn balls, chocolate dipped pretzels, yogurt covered raisins, biscotti, and oreo cake pops.
If you're getting thirsty and are wondering where on earth that hot chocolate bar is I must admit that I forgot to take pictures of it. But it had whipped cream, instant coffee for all the mocha fans and marshmallows. I forgot the crushed peppermint canes at home.
What about the birthday girl, you might wonder.
She was stunning as always.
Yes, I made my walker crawl, just so I could get some pictures of her little behind. I'm in love with those bloomers, what can I say?
I made the tutu myself, but the onesie and the bloomers are from Marina's Monogramming. She was great to work with. I highly recommend her!
Look at that cake! It was gorgeous. And soo delicious! I hope I won't offend anyone when I say that I normally prefer Swedish cakes over American. They just taste better. But this one tasted just like a cake pastry thing from home and I actually had seconds. If you ever need a cake I can recommend my baker friend! Just let me know.
Her tutu was never put back on after the cake, but with those bloomers, who cares?
Her sister kept decorating cookies all day long. They were shaped like snow flakes before I baked them...
Sorry about the random snowflake in the middle. I made these huge snowflakes out of poster boards and hung them from the ceiling, but forgot to take pictures. So I snuck one in here. It's from when it was drying in our basement. Oh, well.
I don't mean to kick you out, but if you're leaving please grab a party favor.
Gluten free, white, sparkly, homemade playdough for the kids,
Chocolates for the adults and
Puffs for the little ONEs.
Now all I need to do is schedule a photo shoot with my favorite photographer and I can make and send out some thank you cards.
Thanks for stopping by our Winter ONEderland!
