party x 2

Our house has been a party house lately. Check these two out, doing the birthday party thing x 2. Their birthdays are both in February, so we had a family party for both of them on the same day.
 Bowie's first birthday cake was Vespa/scooter themed. Which is no surprise if you know our family.
I found a scooter cookie cutter here and made little fondant cut-outs for the top of his cake. I used Wilton rolled fondant for all of the shapes and layered them on top of buttercream icing.
Lo's cake and cupcake theme was LaLaLoopsy, once again. (Check out this post if you want to see her other LaLaLoopsy party with her friends.) I sort of attempted a 'his and hers' cupcake stand.
Lo's pink/chocolate cupcakes had striped paper straws with LaLaLoopsy pencil toppers on top. So easy and super cute.
Bowie's cupcakes were topped with the same striped straws and little paper flags.
This simple felt 'happy birthday' banner from the Spritz party supply line at Target. I can see myself using this for years to come – the bright colors will go with any party theme!
I made a quick garland out of painted clothespins and Bowie's monthly pics from his first year and hung them over our fireplace.
And just like that ... they're both a year older. Happy birthday to my babies. I love having these parties for you (and I hope you love them, too.)
