The party planning has ended and Easton is a full year old. Who knew a one year old's party could be so fun! We invited family and some close friends. We had a backyard broil for dinner and the kids played and ate cupcakes for dessert. I planned a 4 o'clock party since I remember bringing Easton home from the hospital last year and pumping the AC because it was incredibly hot. Luckily Southern California had beautiful weather this past weekend.
I made a triple layer smash cake (red, white and blue layers), white frosting and of course a cute washi tape straw cake topper. We had straws with little "ahoy" flags, also made from washi tape. The napkins were also made to go along with the nautical theme!
We used his regular high chair, made a banner "ONE", my mom made a bib for his cake eating festivities, and since this kid LOVES a good balloon, we got a "1" for his highchair. Our kitchen chalkboard was used for his current stats and loves.
I thought maybe I could have a piece of cake, but I was wrong, he demolished the whole cake within seconds!
