Evie's first birthday party

So as I dip my feet into the planning of her second birthday party, I realize that I never shared her first birthday party with you. We did a Minnie Mouse theme and I was very proud of myself for DIY the majority of the stuff. So here you go!

Here is her cake made by me with rolled marshmallow fondant and buttercream

 Here are the Minnie Mouse cupcakes and chocolate bars in the printed wrappers.

If you look closely you can see the three food tables are arranged into a Minnie head.

Her printed banner over the present table

 Her highchair/picture area. In the background are the party hats with take-home hair bows attached.

A closer picture of her highchair skirt. It says "I am 1"

There is the birthday girl herself! Looking sweet in her Minnie dress, but she wouldn't leave the ears on!

Her smash cake (Banana bread in an attempt to get her to eat it. I didn't work, she just picked off the strawberries)

Cake smash photo op! You can kind of see our custom Mom/Dad of the birthday girl shirts.

Well I hope you enjoyed the quick trip down memory lane, and I maybe I have inspired you in the planning of your own!
