This past weekend we celebrated Kaiya's 1st Birthday!
Who doesn't love a themed party? I was deciding between "Little Miss ONEderful", or "Some Bunny is One" for the longesttt. I chose the latter when I realized I could use Spring and Easter being so close to her birthday to my advantage. I had booked the venue back in December & then it was time to let the party planning begin!
For the entrance table I had a time capsule station to write Kaiya a message for her to open and read when she turns 18. I'll save you the math..it'll be in 2036 people!!! (I suddenly feel incredibly OLD)
I also had a slideshow of all the photos from her cake-smash photoshoot as well as a picture board with all her photos from 1-12 months. This gorgeous tulip centerpiece in my moms trifle dish was even more beautiful in person.
Since dessert is the best part of any meal, I had to have a dessert table. I had a few ideas in mind and with the help of 3 very talented ladies, my vision for each dessert came to life. We had cake, cupcakes, cake-pops, cookies, and macarons.
I wanted to keep the cakes simple since there was a lot going on with the backdrop and other desserts so I went with naked pink tower cakes. The main cake was vanilla with Bavarian cream filling..lets just say I'll be getting that filling from now on..OMG so good!
I had to have some cupcakes because I actually prefer them over cake. Again, I kept them simple with yellow vanilla cake & pink buttercream icing. I added little gold bunny ear toppers.
Every bunny needs carrots! So carrot cake-pops were a must BUT with funfetti filling..not a carrot cake lover over here. My best friends cousin made them and they were not only adorable but absolutely DELICIOUS! Thanks Jen!
The cookies and macarons were made by my beautiful friend Gianna who is beyond talented. She does this as a side job but could easily have a show on the food network with her skills! She customized these incredible sugar cookies for Kaiya complete with moss #1s, monogramed bunny ears, "It's Some Bunny's Birthday" plaques, and the sweetest little painted bunnies I've ever seen (and eaten!)
She made these stunning vanilla and strawberry macarons splashed with edible gold! Love you G!!
It always seem you plan and plan for special events and then they're over in a flash! With the help of an amazing photographer I was able to capture the day and some really sweet moments between Kaiya and our friends and family. I can't wait to show them all back to her one day and reminisce on this amazing day!
