The Tale of Two Parties

 

Here I go again… planning not one, but TWO birthday parties for the month of June!  It’s a lot to keep straight… so here it all is in one place!

Bryson’s First Birthday Theme: Adventure!  This is going to be a vintage/retro theme with an old 1940’s prop plane as the main image

Bryson’s First Birthday Task and To-Do List:

1. Cupcake toppersbuy on Etsy from TiTisTuTus

poms

I changed my ideas on this!  I found this cute little plane to use for my cake topper and then thought, ‘hey, make some cupcake toppers out of those cute things!’  So, that’s what I’m doing!  Ordering from Etsy. – In Progress – planes are ordered.

2. Design cake – In Progress – it will be similar to this but with a wooden plane on top so that he can play with it later.  The plane will be placed on top of fondant clouds.  A cake bunting/banner will go over the whole thing.
