Inspired by a number of cakes on Pinterest with bunnies (e.g.: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/249105423118714625/) I finally settled on a mix of designs which a wonderful cake decorator in the greater Seattle area was able to bring to fruition (spent more than planned).
Had a great time coordinating and planning out decorations through Amazon, Oriental Trader and Dollar Tree. Funny – some deals were better on one and some the other. But managed to get cups, plates, napkins, popcorn holders, milk containers, banners all online at really great deals.
It was a rush putting everything together at the party location. We only had like 30 minutes to set up and tear down. The challenge was blowing up balloons when we go there – if it wasn’t for family and friends helping it would never of gotten done.
The kids LOVED the pink lemonade served in the milk carton glasses and our daughter loved the popcorn holders – they were the perfect size for her little hands to hold and held the perfect portion for little kiddos.
I suppose this is a lot to spend on a little child who will never remember this day other than the photos and video’s we captured, but everyone enjoyed the moment, memories were special and you only have a 1st birthday once in life.
BTW – the cake was AMAZING! one layer was chocolate, one was red velvet and the other was vanilla. Everyone got 2nd and 3rd helpings – and yes, we will be going back for cakes there in the future – he is an artist.
