I have a secret to tell you. I've been planning my son's first birthday party since he was just a few months old. Why? It's one of the biggest celebrations a family can have. It's the culmination of a year of hard work as a parent, and a moment to step back and reflect on all the growing your child has done.
I'm thinking of doing a circus theme for his party. There are so many options for décor, decorations and favors but what I'm really excited about is the cake. Nothing is better htan watching a little guy dig in to his first piece. It's messy but so worth it.
I envision the cake as a three tiered round chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream frosting. I will also decorate the outside of the cake with circus cookies (you know, the pink and white frosted sprinkled cookies that you loved as a kid?). I love cakes homemade cakes. There's something about putting the love and time into it that you can't get from store brought stuff.
Moms, what was the theme of your child's last birthday party?
