Thank you for the birthday wishes!!!

We had a small birthday celebration for Cooper this weekend.

It was primary color & circle themed!

I had a bunch of candy on the table for the adults- The little meringues from Trader Joe’s were a hit!

I filled little chinese food containers with bubblegum for “goodie bags”

We had the party outside- the weather was in the high 70s!

I served grilled sausage with peppers & onions (not pictured).  There were some other goodies too.

I made carrot cake cupcakes- and added bubblegum balls on top:

    This looks amazing….so fun and colorful. I’ve never heard the phrase “smash cake” before! Does that mean a cake for the lil guy to grab at? How cute is that???? (Also, leave it to you to have the most yumtastic Smash Cake….vanilla with cream cheese frosting??? HELLO!)

    Cooper is beautiful and you are the best mom around lady!

    Thanks for giving me the tip to check this out! I am so excited to make Kendall’s cake for her first birthday, but I can’t decide what flavor to go for… I’m thinking just vanilla like you did with Cooper. Her party is “Paris” themed so I’m trying to tie in something creative with that. Thanks again!
