Cupcake Birthday- Kenna is 1

Happy 1st Birthday Kenna!
 I took about a million pictures of Kenna's first birthday, and created a beautiful scrapbook for her. I wasn't blogging when this party took place, but I wanted to throw a few pictures up here to inspire myself as I get ready for Little Man's first birthday.  Her party was February 2009. It snowed the night before, and I several party guests planned to sled over if the roads were bad.  :)

I used my mom's favorite sugar cookie recipe to make these cute cupcake cookies. I iced them, added some sprinkles and tied them up in cellophane bags.They looked fantastic in person- the picture doesn't do them justice. (I even made the flame yellow!)  I added a cupcake pencil and plastic cupcake ring when I tied the bag closed- they were the perfect favors! You can kinda see them in the bowl in the bottom left of the photo below.
This was our simple table spread. I made all the printables myself. I ordered the cupcakes at Walmart, and provided som pretzels and goldfish for youngers.  I used rice in some candle vases to hold up the big K signs and a couple of cupcake lollipops that I found at Target for $1. 
 That was it! Fun, easy and inexpensive. 

 Although this isn't a great picture- it is the only one I have of Kenna wearing her special birthday hat that Handy Husband MADE!! He created it with cardboard, some fuzzy boa, fabric that he hand embroidered a 1 onto, and then tied the whole thing with some ribbon. Seriously. 

He also made her a birthday Tutu. Seriously. 

Kenna ditched the hat and dived into her cake. First taste of sugar, icing, white flour, etc.
 She was in baby heaven. (make that 1 year old heaven!) 
We had an amazing party, with all of our favorite people. 
What a great way to celebrate Kenna's first year of life!
