My niece turned one last week and my brother and sister in law wanted to celebrate her with just a small cake, but being the “extra tia" that I am, I needed to make a little cute area for her pictures! Because you only turn 1 once! Right!?
Our 6ft white backdrop was perfect to make all the colors going on pop! Like always, I had the best help; my mom! She made the paper flowers, unicorn horn, ears and lashes (horns and ears made and painted with a cereal box that we were gonna throw away! Yup! She’s crafty like that!😅)
Last Thanksgiving my husband built me this white vintage table! So I wanted to use it so Sofi could sit on it and to place the letters on top. (Pssst, Its also part of our Inventory😉) The marquee letters spelled SOFI and I also added #1! Which we painted hot pink to go with the theme!
The Balloon Garland
Talking about painting, in order to create the color scheme I was going for, I had to spray paint some balloons since I wasn’t going to pay $7 for a bag of 10 that later would be thrown away/popped! 🙅🏼♀️😂
I knew this table NEEDED the balloon garland to put all the look together! So I went into youtube and did my research on how to make it! I was pretty happy with the end result! Now I want to make garlands for all the parties!🤣🤷🏼♀️
The Cake & Desserts
We ordered the cake from the Nissi Cake (so yummy!) and I did some last minute desserts!
Since technically it wasn’t a party, there was nothing but the cake BUT the table needed some stuff on top to look a little fuller so I went to HEB, bought an already made strawberry cake & whipped some cream cheese with lechera to make some mini strawberry short cakes and unicorn parfaits.
The birthday girl
I’ve always thought that the first year is special, but most of the times the babies are too young to actually acknowledge what’s going on a party, not Sofi! She knew she was being celebrated and she enjoyed every single bit of it!
