Behind The Party ~ Let's Play Ball

I am so happy to share my first birthday party inspiration with you today.  This party was from my older son's six birthday party last September. We live in the city and thankfully we have a courtyard that is a soccer size field (grassy area) that we call our backyard.  My son loves sports so his idea was to have a sports party in our backyard. The invitations were inspired by his favorite color green and favorite sport baseball.  Well, I was pretty much set for the design of the invitation thanks to his ideas. My boys have allergies so I usually make the cupcakes for any party and this was no exception. The new icing I used for the cupcakes proved to be a challenge.  I was disappointing it was more like a glaze then icing (note to self ~ don't experiment with new products when you are on a time crunch).  I had no time to fix the icing fiasco. Thank goodness the cupcakes tasted good and the parents were nice enough not to say how interesting they looked. In full disclosure no one got sick eating my cupcakes. 

This party was my realization and jumping off point for starting my business.  It was a lot of hard work being a baker, designer, stylist, hostess, photographer, and planner.  I needed some time to recover. However, in the end we had a great time and that is all that really matters. My son was so happy and had lots of fun with his friends! Here are some photos of the party. I hope you enjoy seeing what I did for my son's birthday.  The invitations I designed for the party are in the shop now.

Have a great rest of the week. Hope to post on Friday, we will just have to see how the week goes.

Great looking party! I love that green, it just pops against everything!

I so agree, no new products during a time crunch, I once had an issue with candy melts and food colouring the night before a dessert table. Lesson learned :)
