Just catching up on some old photos and parties. Last summer our baby girl turned 1 and we threw a little party for her. I made a small “smash cake” for her and then made cupcakes for the party guests.IMGP7014
To top the cake and make some height I revised her party invite to say Happy Birthday, printed it off and taped it to a paper straw, then stuck it in the cake. Simple!IMGP7018
The rest of the food was simple—Costco fruit, muffins, quiche and individually packaged snacks for the kid guests (juice boxes, string cheese, etc.).IMGP7046
I framed her birth announcement on the table for an easy decoration:IMGP7019 IMGP7022  IMGP7051
Quick thank you favors—lollipops tied with a thank you tag.IMGP7080     
My favorite easy detail were these cupcake flags from Target’s Sprtiz line. They have the best party items!IMGP7035   
All in all this girl was happy so I’d say it was a success! (She loves her daddy too ;)IMGP7037

  1. Such a cutie pie! Happy birthday to the little kid. I am also baking this time for my nephew. It’s his first birthday and we have booked one of the most beautiful Los Angeles event venues for the birthday celebration. I really liked the decoration.
