When my daughter turned 1, I decided to throw a neopolitan themed birthday party using lt. pink, brown and ivory as the color scheme. I was 8 months pregnant with my son at the time and one of my favorite treats was ice cream, so I think that had a major influence on the party theme!
I ordered carnations in pink, white and red online and found the pink banana split dishes at my grocery store!
Everyone received a cupcake in its own bakery box as a favor. They were chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry combinations.
The birthday girl
I prefer the pull string pinatas for the little ones. The children were all 1 - 2 years old so they really had no idea what to do with it and were not impressed by the candy so the adults had a grand time helping themselves.
The dessert table
I made Cibella's birthday cake and smash cake. It was my first time using fondant to cover and decorate a cake and I completely underestimated how long it would take to do. Still, I was happy with the results.
Create your own sundae.
Enjoying her cake
It's hard to believe that she is an almost 3 1/2 year old ... how time flies! She has become a party planner herself, informing me of her 4th birthday party theme only 3 days after her Aurora Princess Party. Yes, I have already begun working on her invitations! The theme, you ask? Well, it's going to be a Jolly Holiday!
