for our little guy’s first birthday, we wanted a simple party with close friends and family. i wanted something to draw everything together stylistically, but since max can’t really tell us what he likes we didn’t want it to be too theme-y. but let’s be honest, surviving the first year is a big deal, so we wanted a bit of a shindig.
i happened upon this adorable animal cake from oh happy day. perfect. and if you don’t read her blog, you should.
we think max liked the cake. CAKEFACE NOM NOM NOM.
i wanted cute pics of friends and family, so a punchy backdrop was a must. easy guys, truly.
and the carrot cake with blueberry animal cracker ice cream (recipe now here!) may or may not have been breakfast the next morning. i’m not telling.
