The Birthday Party as promised.

So finally the big day came and it's been a little over a week since then.
{*sigh*} I just don't know where does time go...

Logan turned one almost two weeks ago and it's amazing how he has turned into this independent {so he thinks} little man. He climbs over furniture, climbs the stairs {I'm always behind him, no worries}, says Dada a little more often than Mama...{isn't that nice?}and waves bye-bye....and today he finally let go of the furniture to wave bye-bye and gave three steps towards his daddy when he said: 'Ok buddy, give me a kiss I gotta go to work'...It was so amazing we both {yes daddy too!} had tears in our eyes. Our little baby is growing up so quickly! 

Well without further ado, here you have the pics. I'm very proud of the turnout, everyone had fun and loved the decorations {that I made =) }. Thanks for looking!

Birthday Boy!

Center Table {with lots of snacks, cupcakes and candy!}

Kids Table {they had bubbles, crayolas, noise makers, balloons}

Enough space for the kids to play {I love the room}

Loved this cupcake stand {cupcake toppers and food tents made by me!}

I am so glad everyone had fun {see the bubbles? lovely!}

Logan wasn't too happy at the beginning {can you tell?}

And then he found....drumroll....a cupcake! {this is the only cute family portrait}

He was so into the sugary buttercream that didn't even care about the hat {that I made! LOL}
I loved that my neighborhood bakery has this deal: you buy the cake for baby's first birthday and you get a little "smash cake" for free! I love the idea, it was the best part of the party! Here are the pics:

The "real" cake {yellow cake with chocolate pudding and buttercream frosting}

Smash Cake time! {is this for real?}
hmmm let's see what we have here...

Yummy! {it is for real!}

I just love it! {btw frosting stains came right out in one wash}

I am very happy to share this with you because you have been my faithful readers since day one, when Logan was only three months and I would sit and share with you all his little milestones...and now look at him!

Please feel free to contact me and ask me any questions about the party and the decor. We are all here to help!

Love always,
