1st Birthday Party {Part 2}

May 11, 2010 - 12:51 am

Here are more of my favorite pictures from my daughter’s pink cupcake 1st Birthday Party.

Fondant cake and cupcake stand.  With the help of my friend, Lacey, I was able to do my very 1st fondant cake (so don’t look too close!).

White chocolate (dyed pink) cupcakes on a stick

Cupcake Pops!

Pink marshmallows

This is the view from the back of the food table.  We had the party at 11:30, so we served lunch in addition to all the goodies.  Chic-Fil-A chicken nuggets, sandwiches we made with some good stuff from Newk’s Cafe (chicken salad, pimento and Newk’s Q… yummy!) and fruit skewers made by my friends, Lacey and Tara.  Fruit dip… pink of course!

Birthday banner on the fireplace mantle along with the framed invitation and a cupcake in a cupcake stand.

We served Strawberry Lemonade and Cherry Limeade.

{Waterbottle labels that matched the party decor.}

I made these sugar cookies with royal icing.  Turned out ok, but took a LONG time.  Now I know why people who make these charge $2-$3 and up for these babies!

The party favors were strawberry or vanilla  “cupcakes in a jar” for the guests to take home.

That’s enough for now!  I still have a few more I want to show you, so those will come next.  Sorry to overwhelm you with so many photos.  At least I haven’t shown you the other 600!

      Hi Kelli, Certainly- I baked the cupcakes just like normal and after they cooled I dropped them in the jars and then i put the frosting on them while they were in the jars. Let me know if you have any other questions!
