this past weekend, we celebrated with some friends for another one year old's birthday. Gunnar is one lucky little guy to have such a great family and his mom made sure that her "last" first birthday party would be one to remember!
Cat's attention to detail was amazing. she made that incredible train cake from scratch. it had rolos, skittles, gummi lifesavers, candy corn, and hershey chocolate bars in each of the cars and every cake was a different flavor. the sugar cookies (that i helped ice!) were delicious and she made those from scratch too. i also loved the chocolate dipped pretzels. i didn't get a picture of the regular food but she also made these delicious mini pesto pizzas, pigs in a blanket, and fresh caprese salad.
the gift bags were these adorable little suitcases that included a train conductor hat, a bandanna, a train whistle, and a few other little goodies. and each guest also got a little Melissa and Doug train to paint and cover with stickers. the kids enjoyed the bounce house and i may have even bounced once or twice.
it was a beautiful celebration for a super happy, healthy little boy and we were so happy to be able to be a part of it. and as a bonus, i was able to personally deliver the first of my handmade gifts (from this challenge). less than 4 months to finish!
