My inspiration for this birthday theme came one day as I watched my daughter enjoy one of her favourite snacks, strawberries! She loves them so much, so I knew it would be the right theme to represent her first year of life.
I wanted to create a dessert table that was overflowing with sweets and candy in beautiful colours of lime green, pink and red. These colours were used in patterns of stripes and polka dots to give the theme a preppy yet classic look.
Red velvet cake, chocolate cupcakes with strawberry buttercream, vanilla cupcakes with buttercream, strawberry shaped cookies and candy!
Guests filled cute paper bags with gumballs, sixlets and lollipops.
When my little girl reached over and hugged her brother tight for giving her a lollipop!
My little one was not camera shy. She was dancing and smiling and having a blast being in the spot light.
