Badge's First Birthday
Badge had his FIRST birthday yesterday! I loved celebrating his special day with an airplane themed birthday party.
Here is the Birthday boy!!
We took him out to one of our favorite Atlanta restaurants for lunch.
Of course, he ordered the mac and cheese. :)
And then we headed back home so Badge could nap and we could make the final preparations for his party!
The Food Cart complete with an airplane watermelon. For food- I stuck with the airplane theme (of course) and served pretzels, peanuts, cheese and fruit.
The Dessert Table was my favorite.
Cake Art Store and filled it with melted white chocolate chips with red coloring. I used these for the cup cake toppers along with the printables that I bought from Flipawoo.
recipe). I looked into buying pre-made fondant but it was just too expensive and it doesn't taste that great. I was really pleased with the marshmallow fondant, it was super easy to make. I couldn't believe how easy it was! And it is yum-o too!
I was planning to give away the airplane cookies as favors, but they kept breaking every time I tried to bag them, so I decided to go a different route with the favors. For the cookies, I followed every word of Sweetopia's tutorials and they turned out beautiful and delicious!! This was my first time piping and I loved it! I think I would enjoy taking a cake decorating class some day in the future!

The cardstock was only printed on one side, so I had to cut out two of every piece and then glue those pieces wrong sides together. I got white balloons so they would be floating by on a white cloud.
