Flashback! Charley's First Birthday Party

The delicious candy apples for the dessert table

I'm starting to work on Quinne's first birthday party, which is in May, and thought it would be fun to take a trip down Memory Lane and look at Charley's first birthday party. It's hard to imagine that this was over a year ago, Charley looks so darling and little and sweet. Not that she isn't sweet now, but she's two and we all know what that means.

My party skills have come a looong way since this party but there are still so many fun details. I made every single thing myself, including all of the desserts, labels and food. This was my first project that I designed the party printables for and I'd like to think they've improved a lot since then. Nevertheless, this was a really special party in honor of Miss Charley. Enjoy the beautiful photos by Mariah of Mariah Baddas Photography.

Birthday girl in her hat, the sugar cookies that I made for adult favors

Sugar cookies on a stick and the cake (please ignore the horrible frosting job by me)

Tasty and beautiful cupcakes that I made

She was very focused on her cake

She's finally enjoying the cake, could this girl be any cuter?

I'm about to start working on a new cupcake collection to be added to my etsy shoppe soon. I still can't believe this was over a year ago, my how time flies!

The cookies look great, don't be hard on yourself - they look realistic not horrible at all and did I mention YUMMY! Visiting via A Subtle Revelry magazine.
