happy day!

a few weeks back i did an inspiration board post for miss bea's 1st birthday party.
well, it went off without a hitch and i think it was exactly what her mom, deb, was hoping for!
here are a few pictures, by the amazing amanda harris, from the day...

the little miss in her polka-dot party dress that i made for the occasion

tissue pom-poms hung from the ceiling in various shades of pink made for a girly, but chic and modern look. a few now hang in a cluster over beatrice's crib.

in an issue of martha stewart baby, there were some "mum" cupcakes that were similar to these... we wanted to mimic the look/feel of the tissue pompoms, so i made them in a few colors.
these were organic whole wheat applesauce cake with cream cheese frosting. YUM!

deb's final touch was the cheerios in the crystal bowl for the smallest guests.

here's to another wonderful year!
