My baby's FIRST birthday!!!!!

Yesterday we celebrated Olivia's first birthday with a St Patrick's Day/Dr Seuss Birthday party! She isn't officially 1 until the 17th, (St Patrick's Day), but it was a celebration none the less.

Here is the cake, aka my 3rd child!!! lol A true LABOR!!!



The birthday girl herself...



The smash cake...



She LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



What a ham!! (no pun intended)











We're all St Patricks Day'd out






My girls




Some of the food...


No Dr Seuss Party would be complete without Green Eggs and Ham!!!


And a crumb too small for a mouse! (The Grinch)


And no St Patrick's Day party would be complete w/o GREEN BEER!!!


Baby land...



Kids tables...


The centerpieces. lol









Candy buffet!!!!!





This is the best picture I could get of the babies all together. lol

  9. I am sure you have gotten this a lot, but how on earth is this cake standing? Is it all cake? or is there Styrofoam in there? I really can't figure it out.

  14. My jaw dropped. Literally. Wow. I run a website for the Organizers of play groups. I've seen hundreds, maybe thousands, of party plans and ideas, but this is amazing. Absolutely amazing. I'm posting a link to your outstanding party in our Dr. Suess events thread at http://www.meetup.com/NotJustMoms. Thank you for sharing. Wow.

  18. wow! I am impressed! I have a friend who does cakes for a living and to keep her style updated, she really goes to a class under Cake Alchemy's (from Amazing wedding cakes) and I must say, your cakes are at par! I'm interested how much you would charge for the "Tangled" cake shown at your home page? Please email me directly, flopanlilio@gmail.com
