Happy 1st Birthday Kayla

I can’t believe my little girl is one.  We had a great first birthday party for Kayla on Friday with our family.  I already told you about her adorable outfit made by Texas Monkey Boutique here.  I hope you checked out her site and her UH-MAZING prices and ordered a Valentine poof for a little girl in your life.


I made her cupcakes onesie.  I loosely followed Lil Blue Boo’s tutorial but I embroidered her name on the cupcake liner and didn’t add as much tulle and fabric because I got lazy and rushed.  But it turned out cute enough anyway.


I popped on over to Maddycakes Muse which is an adorable party idea site just in time to win a printable party decor set perfect for her party.

If I had any skills in digital designing I would totally make printable party decor.  I think it is brilliant.  For $10 you can get a PDF chock full of decor to print from your own printer.  That is cheap and totally worth it in my book! This is what it came with:

Customizable Square Invitation + Tulip Envelope
Thank You Note
Cupcake Picks / Garland Rounds
Cone Party Hats
Goody Bag Toppers
Birthday Gift Log
Take-out Style Favor Boxes
Cupcake Wrappers
Pennant Banner “Happy Birthday”
Napkin Rings / Candle Wraps / Vase Wraps
Snack Box / Hamburger Sleeve
Full Sheet Patterned Paper
Front Door Banner
Birthday Crown

And here it is in action…

IMG_1248 Remember my CRAAAZZY week?  In desperation I called a friend of ours named Dennis who is a chef by trade and begged him asked him to frost the cupcakes and Kayla’s cake for me.  I was totally content with a tub of white frosting but look what he comes up with…flower, stem, dirt, bumble bee.  Over the top?  Totally, but I loves it.

Ok and I wanted to interject a totally adorable baby shower idea.  At my baby shower, my friend Amy decorated a cute box and bought a bunch of candles with some strips of paper.  Everyone who was at my baby shower wrote their “wish” for my baby girl on their birthday.  Each year it is a surprise to open up a new candle and read what they wrote.


So I opened up the first candle and that is what she used on her first cake.  It was from a friend named Nikki who wrote, “Baby Farrant, Happy Birthday!  My wish for you this year is that you have a special relationship with your big brother.”  Isn’t that a unique and thoughtful idea?
