Last week my littlest one turned one!!!!
Time flies seriously!!! Where is it going!!!!!! and sooooo fast!!!!!!
I had the funnest year ever with this little dude!!
For all my kids I like to take the pains to create something sweet and special!
And this guy was no exception.. I looooooove doing this thing. Preparing! Planning! creating!
However over the years my goals have changed significantly!
From over the top parties to simple stuff_ which creates maximum impact with the least amount of effort!.. Possible!!!!
So for this memorable day my goal was to keep it simple and fresh as well…
I had this gorgeous lime card paper stored so I had in mind to use it as a pop of color!!
The idea was to have all white backgrounds with these splashes of lime popping in..
The cake ofcourse had to be the panda cake! Coz it is just sooooo darn cute for a 1st bday!
I loooove throwing parties and real big parties for sure but this once I wanted a really cozy small sweet party! So I created some very few desserts but made sure that all of them hit the right spots! I created these jello cubes which my kids adddddore!! They are the easiest funnest and the cutest recipe anyone will ever need!
No party is complete without the cupcakes. So I created these no fuss vanilla cupcakes. They turned absolutely amazing!! And i did not regret having them at alllll!!
Out of my beloved cardstock I created this simple backdrop of 3D diamonds! And I absolutely loooooooved the way it turned out!!!
It was easy as pie and totally agreed with the rest of the colors.
I added a little sweets tray to mucnh on during the party and get the sugar rush waaay before its needed!!! 😀 😀
I filled this translucent basket with some kinetic clay and hid these cards inside. The luckiest one got the easiest job!!! 😀 😀 ;D
So this is how we did our sweet little 1st birthday!!! I am so pleased with the way it turned out and my kids had a blast!! Notice the absence of the traditional party goods like banners hats and balloons! And how even without the “considered essentials” it works just fine!!!
Alll smiles for that!!
Let me know what you think of this Panda party with a pop of color! If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear them?
Have a gorgeous day!
