March 2015 – Harper turns one, and the theme of her 1st Birthday is “Vintage Shabby Chic.”
Harper’s mom Jessica created this beautiful dessert table and created all the decorations including the amazing fabric banner.
I made two identical smash cakes, one for Harper’s photo session and the 2nd one for the birthday party. The cake was Banana Blueberry Smash Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. For the party guests I made cupcakes and Thumbprint Cookies filled with raspberry and apricot jams.
Many of the photos that follow below were taken by our daughter-in-law Christie. You can see more of her photos at ChristieHickeyPhotography.com.
The food was wonderful and easy for party guests to pick-up and eat.
Guests had their own mason jar drinking glass with a paper straw.

And here is the star of the show, Harper, wearing her birthday crown.

A few days prior to the birthday party I went with Harper, Jessica, and Christie to a nearby park where Christie took some amazing photos with Harper and her smash cake.
