First Birthday {details}

We had a great time celebrating the little one's 1st birthday this past weekend. About 50 of our closest family and friends were at our house to celebrate and I think everyone had a great time. We had snacks and dessert which kept it easier than serving a full meal. I tried to carry the balloon theme throughout the decor and food. Here are a few of the details:

1st Birthday Cake. I highly recommend the Trader Joe's chocolate cake mix and frosting. It was delicious. 

Balloon Cupcakes: 

Balloon and candle sugar cookies:

Ikea frames {$.99} with pictures through out her first year adorned the tables. I also filled the votive candles with sprinkles which was a fun touch. 

I made each of the little one's birthday hats using chevron cardstock and pom poms from the craft store. It was a super simple project and I think they turned out quite cute. 

It wouldn't have been a party without some apothecary jars filled with gold fish and puffs. You can also see in the background that I cut out balloon shapes using different cardstock and just sewed them down the middle to create a cute streamer. 

And the birthday girl loved her cake...

...until we put on the party hat. 

It was a great day and I couldn't have imagined a better party!
