{First Birthday Party} Cupcakes in Turquoise, Pink and Green

Little Ella (what a cutie she is!) is turning one, and she celebrated her big day this weekend with a one-of-a-kind cupcake party.

Ella is an adorable little girl, and she just happens to have the sweetest parents. Her mom, Sarah, came up with the idea of the cupcake party and the colors of turquoise, pink and green. What a cute combination! Mikaelah and I were trilled to be a part of these party preparations.

I fell in love with all the scrapbook paper devoted to cupcakes! Especially this one. We incorporated this pattern into a variety of items for little Ella's party, but we wanted to do something extra special, so this is what we came up with ...

And you know the little cutie is going to smash her way into her very own birthday cake (and probably make a huge and adorable mess). So we created this small banner to string across the front of her high chair. Continuing the cupcake theme, of course.

We loved putting this banner together. The problem was, there were just TOO MANY cute papers and patterns to choose from! (The polka dot ones are among my favorites.)

Ohhh, now this is a fun project that I had really been wanting to try! Cupcake toppers.

And then some coordinating cupcake wrappers.

Ok, this is where Sarah (mom to the little cutie) comes in. She came of with the idea of a cupcake making table for the children at the party. Sarah even prepared a little station for the kids to decorate their own little boxes to take the cupcakes home in. Such a fun idea, and a great way to get the little ones involved in the cupcake making =)

To go along with the cupcake making station, Mikaelah and I created these table signs.

I love how the colors really pop on this door sign that we created for the party.

This tulle cupcake wreath was a project Mikaelah took on, and I was thrilled with how it turned out! What can I say, I love cupcakes. Oh yes, and polka dots, too!

Another Mikaelah project: Have you seen some of the ribbon topiaries she has made for previous parties? Well, these are the baby version of them, and they're simply adorable. Some of the larger topiaries can be found here and here.

So can you tell we had a lot of fun making these for Ella's party? We really did enjoy having the opportunity to do all of this for her. What a fun theme, and what a fun birthday for her.

Happy 1st Birthday, Ella!
