Hayden's 1 Year Princess Party
















My baby turned 1 today!  I can hardly believe it.  Her little party turned out so cute.  I decided against the fondant cake and went with cupcakes instead.  I made the crown cupcake toppers myself along with her invitations.  I went to Scrapbooks Etc. to cut out the crowns and 1's.  I also used their paper cutter and corner punches.  Some bling was in order so I used pink swarovski crystals on the top of the crown and iridescent swarovski crystals on the bottom of the crown and on the corners of the invite. I wish I had nicer writing so I could have hand written them, but I don't, so I used Microsoft Word to write out what I wanted them to say and printed them on card stock from home.  I went ahead and made the chocolate and sprinkled covered pretzels and large marshmallows that I put in pretty pink glasses. They were delish and looked even cuter on the table.  I found some pink star suckers on long plastic sticks that looked like princess wands.  I had a lot of fun planning and Hayden was the perfect birthday girl. The night before her party I made her a little cupcake birthday outfit.  I'll have to take pictures of it since you can't really tell from the pictures. Basically I used cupcake fabric and made an elastic waistband skirt and made a ruffle with the same fabric and sewed it to her onesie.  Since she pulls out most of her clips, I glued pink swarovski crystals to a tiny alligator clip with teeth to match her outfit and keep the hair out of her face. She kept it in the whole party :) Overall the evening was a success. It was so fun having my mom, brother, and sister inlaw in town! They were a HUGE help :)
