What is a birthday without a cake table! I wish I would have gotten a closer shot of a few different things on this table. First the big elephant on the left is actually a jar full of pink, green, and yellow M&Ms...the green bucket on the right has spoons in it! I love these cupcake trees and I paid $5.00 for them at Wal Mart at Valentines. I know we will get SEVERAL uses out of them and they will be well worth the money....I loved the cupcake holders they matched the theme PERFECTLY!! And I used create a critter to make the cute cupcake toppers!In LOVE with this elephant cake. I have to say all I did was bake it, help with an ear and place the googley eyes...Jennifer did the rest and she did an AMAZING job on it!Of course the birthday girl had to have her OWN cupcake! It turned out super cute as well. Her banner says I am 1!!A close up of the cupcake and the banner. Super cute..I got the cupcake cake dish at Wal Mart during Valentine as well..Great idea for a baby's cake:)And what is a birthday without the cutest baby ever eating yummy hot pink icing!!What is an elephant party without a peanut goody box? There were only 4 kids at the party, but we loved giving out these little goody bags to them and they enjoyed them as well!And an elephant shirt for the birthday girl. Poor Kendall was not feeling good at all during her party, she was tired and has a top row of teeth trying to make their way in. Poor thing she did really good considering! This was the best I could get of her shirt, because she was fussy if Chris or I weren't holding her!And this was something I displayed at the party. These are Kendall's purple chair pictures every month! I so enjoyed looking at this. I LOVE this frame. I am not much on silver frames so when I saw this at Hobby Lobby I fell in love with it. I will take another picture when we hang it in Kendall's room! We are trying to decide if we will keep her initials in the middle or put a picture of her eating cake!
A first birthday party takes A LOT of work! Wow were we worn out Saturday night!
Here are a few things that we did to prepare for Kendall's Party!First there is an Elephant Banner. It's pretty simple, but oh so cute and we had a lot of fun making it!!
