We celebrated Becca’s first birthday with a BIG party! About 50 people were in our house. It was crazy but so very fun! On her actual birthday I made some cupcakes and thought I would do a little photo shoot with her. She wasn’t feeling it.
For the big party I didn’t go with a theme, just some colors. I did pink, mint, and gold. I mad the rag banner that is on her highchair and the table. I used this tutorial from Pinterest. Becca’s Birthday Girl shirt was from Oh Sweet Sprouts on Easy. (LOVE THEM!) The tutu was Smocked Auctions (it isn’t available right now but they always have some good stuff) and the moccs are Freshly Picked (My favorite!). The cake was from Amy Cake’s in Springfield. Oh my gracious it was so good. I don’t think I’ll buy a cake from anywhere else ever again, well as long as I’m in Branson. Joe doesn’t like cake that much and he was eating the leftovers. We did strawberry and almond vanilla with a buttercream frosting. The cake topper was from an Etsy shop, SweetEscapesbyDebbie. The tall candle was also an Etsy find, CohassetPartySupply. The massive balloons were 24 inch balloons from Party City. Getting those into the car was a nightmare. I knocked the top box off the cake and ended up having to put down all of my seats, the carseat was in the front (Becca was at home with dad), and sat with the smash cake basically in my lap. Along with the fresh fruit and flowers I had picked up. What an adventure! She wasn’t too interested in her presents or the cake because there was just too much going on. She was busy being social. It was lots of fun and was a good marker for the end of year 1!
