I think our favorite part of the table was the centerpiece! We made it out of real branches and fabric cherry blossoms. We placed a little blue bird in the tree branches to match the invitation...and we even made him a little party hat!
We created a glittery letter garland that said "Tweet Charlotte" to hang across the front of the sweets table. We love letter garland, especially for first birthdays! It is so cute to hang the baby's name in the nursery after the party!
What party is complete without cupcakes! We made mini cupcakes, half of them had a little cherry blossom tucked in the side and the other half had the cupcake flags we made to match the invitations. We also made little glittered tent cards to go in front of each sweet!
These little cookies were almond meltaways. We sugared them to give a glittery effect and then piped a cherry blossom on top!
We dipped marshmallows in pink chocolate and sprinkled them with little white non-perils.
We wanted everyone to be able to take home a little "thank you for coming" gift, so we made little blue bird cookies and my fabulous aunt made little blue bird chocolate lollis! (Find a sampling of her fabulous chocolates on Esty or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are looking for something special!)
P.S. Thank you SO much, Chris and Kim, for letting us share these pictures of Charlotte's birthday! xoxo
The birthday girl looked just adorable! She is so sweet....and she was even "sweeter" after she dug into her little cherry blossom smash cake we made her!
Happy First Birthday Miss Charlotte! May all of your birthdays be as "sweet" as you are!
