Reese's First Birthday Party- Sugar and Spice, and Everything Nice

Yesterday was Reese's First Birthday Party!! We threw her a Vintage Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice Party and it was SO fun! Since it is always tricky to feed other people's children, I decided to have a mid- afternoon party and do just a dessert bar. I had the world's biggest most amazing and gracious help with the desserts in the form of my good friend, Katrina, baking ALL the cupcakes and whoopie pies for Reese's Birthday. Yes, every.single.one. No, you cannot steal her. They were as cute as they were delicious and I owe her BIG time. We served lemon blueberry cupcakes, champagne cupcakes, strawberry whoopie pies, miniature apple pies, cinnamon roll pops, meringue bites and vintage jelly beans. I also had fruit, animal crackers, and goldfish out for the kids. And a milk bar. It was such a fun, easy, theme and the kids (and the parents!) all had a great time.

  20. First off, Happy SITS Day!

    Second, those little pigtails are too die for! I miss those little pigtails... My Girl (she's almost 8) has a head full of long, flowing, blond locks, which are also to die for, but there is something about those little pigtails *sigh*

    Love the dessert bar. I'm going to steal that for something... I pinned a recipe for Key Lime Cupcakes with Blackberry icing. Oh My!
