Little Monster 1st Birthday

Today’s post is so cute it’s scary. You are going to see monsters a lot more often, kid’s just love them, and for good reason these fury, multi-eyed creatures are just darling! Momma did an awesome job carrying the theme through every detail of the party, from a hand-made monster piñata to a put-the-eye-on-the-monster poster.

Adopt a monster, what a great idea, just what every little party animal would want to take home and care for.

Cole’s mom wanted an assortment of cakes and cookies. Two of the cakes were buttercream cakes, one for the birthday boy to smash into and the other for the guests. Both cakes were decorated as some fun little monsters and then I made a festive fondant cake with bunting banners and sweet little monster all around the cake.

Hope you enjoyed the post and got some fun ideas for your next party. I am happy to share all of the creative ideas that the hostess came up with and executed so well.

King of the Jungle Baby Shower

Be prepared to see a lot more adorable baby showers up on the blog! Off the top of my head I can think of about 10 very dear ladies who are expectant or new mothers, which means 1. I am going to be an aunt and 2. I am going to be making lots of cakes and desserts for all these beautiful soon-to-be mommies. It looks like 2014 is already looking like a good year. I can’t wait.

Our baby shower on display today is a taste of the wild side. Mommy-to-be Taylor decorated baby Luke’s room in a Jungle theme. You will have to check out the room, it’s just darling plus she made all the bedding and curtains. Can anyone say Mommy of the Year? If you too are feeling adventurous I invite you to also check out her sewing tutorial, never too late to become this generations Martha Stewart!

Since the room turned out just fabulous, Grandma and Aunties decided to carry over the theme into the shower. I am glad they did because I got to make a cake to match this fun-tastic theme!

I think these diaper bikes and cakes are such a neat idea! Great way to make a gift that is both decorative and functional!

For the cake I used the baby’s bedding as my inspiration, if you haven’t checked out baby Luke’s room yet, be sure to. You can see what I went off of for my inspiration!

I just love all these sweet little animals’ faces and you can never go wrong with chevron and polka dots!

Happy New Year to you all, here is to 2013, you have been fabulous but I can’t wait to see what is in store for 2014!
