My little boy, Ayo recently turned 1 and I have to say, amidst a little stress here and there it was actually a pleasant experience planning his 1st birthday party, from choosing an appropriate theme to getting reputable vendors involved in the process.
We decided to go with the Mr. Men & Little Miss theme as Ayo can definitely be classed as "Mr. Happy", and what better way to inject color into an event than with Mr. Men. We had blues, greens, yellows, purples, reds, and oranges it was such a bright sight to behold.
Here are a few highlights from prep to execution. Enjoy :-)
For the cupcakes and dessert table items, we chose a range of flavors from Vanilla to Red Velvet with Cream cheese buttercream, Skittles, Jelly Babies, Chocolate Candy, Lollies and our specialty Banana & Applesauce cakes for the little babies...
The toppers on the cupcakes were handmade cake pics (inedible) and Mr. Men & Little Miss Fondant 2D Characters (edible).
... for the main cake, flavors included Lemon & Coconut, our specialty Moist Vanilla, and Chocolate... and from the feedback we received, the flavors definitely went down a treat.
Now for the structure of Ayomide Michael's main cake.... erm what can I say, we turned tradition, literally on its head :-)
All in all, it was a wonderful day, and my husband and I would especially like to thank everyone who came out to celebrate with us; it was such a brilliant day. Thank you for all the gifts too :-)
