I recently had the privilege of hosting and celebrating a first birthday with one of the cutest kids I know. I made my way up to Minneapolis last weekend and got to enjoy some good food, but more importantly, spend some time with good friends of mine.
Our theme was Winter ONEderland so our event space was a charming warming house set against the backdrop of a sledding hill and a frozen skating pond. And when I say frozen, I mean it. I think it was a high temperature of 4 degrees that day. Even though it was frigid, the sunlight spilled into our space and we had a warm fireplace to keep us all cozy.
I made sure we had plenty to eat, but more importantly, an incredibly cute printed paper suite and corresponding decorated cookies.
On one table we had a coffee and hot cocoa bar along with a custom dessert table.
These chocolate dipped marshmallows were rolled in toppings like peppermint and toffee. Guests were encouraged to dip them into their drinks to customize them however they liked.
On a separate table there were kids activities with custom paper mats. There were gingerbread men which they could decorate with frosting and a variety of sprinkles. We also had cute kid friendly foods as well.
PB&J sandwiches cut into gingerbread men
Mac & Cheese bites
Ham & cheese pinwheels
Rice Krispie treats drizzled with white chocolate
Lastly, I have to show off this custom highchair banner that served as an adorable accompaniment to the birthday girl’s first taste of cake. Such a cutie!
