Birthday Party Madness!

Happy Friday Friends!!! 

Party Party Party Party Party Party

As you can see I am in full PARTY mode! This Sunday we are celebrating Everett's first birthday! (his actual birthday is on Tuesday) I have been pretty busy getting together this DIY party, that I've had no time to blog... or visit my bloggy friends! I miss you all! 
I'm making all the decorations and the food for the party, so I have been strategically planning my days out, so come Sunday I'm not running around like Chicken Little with her head cut off! 
I can't wait to show you all I've done for E's special day. The party's theme is Greek Mythology! We thought about either a Superhero party or Greek Mythology. My husband knows EVERYTHING about both! I mean you ask him something about superhero comic books and he can tell you anything you want to know. (And yes he was at the Midnight showing of The Avengers last night). But he also loves Greek Mythology and I find it pretty fascinating too, so we decided to go with that. Not to mention that we thought about naming Everett... Zeus! But I thought that might be a bit extreme. 
So we have a really fun party planned with lots of fun food and treats. I'm making cupcakes and sugar cookies. And I'm also making a sugar free Smash cake for E. I know, I know, I may be depriving him of his right to eat sugar on his birthday. But I figure he'll have a lifetime to develop a sweet tooth, so I want to hold off for a just a little birth longer. 

Next week I'll be reporting back on all the fun, food & decor for the party! 
I'll leave you with a little teaser... 

Greek mythology inspired edible cake decorations :) #greek #edible #cakedecorations

I had my awesome blog friend Christina over at Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe do a custom order of edible cake decorations at her Etsy Store. She blew me away with her creativity!!!  I'll be writing more about the cake decorations in another post. But I am most excited about these more than anything! 

I just had a breakfast date  with my favorite soon to be one year old. Just him and I chilling 
at BK having apples and hash browns. Those are such sweet moments! Is it possible to freeze time? I wish! 



Happy Friday and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
