Max's Peter Rabbit First Birthday Party

Well, i guess i should start by saying that life got in the way i did not start this blog the way i wanted. But it is still something i want to do, and i am planning on trying harder this time! Anyway, Max celebrated his first birthday on April 25th! I cannot believe time literally flies this fast when you are a parent; it seems like just yesterday he would sleep on my chest all day and now he barely lets me hold him, sigh. We held Max's party on Saturday the 26th and it turned out great! I was really pleased with the end result even though planning a child's birthday party is harder than i imagined.



These adorable plates are by Meri Meri and i got them from amazon. And yellow daisies look perfect in blue jars.


Peter Rabbit coloring sheets, carrot seeds and pots.


I loved these precious little goody buckets. Carrot shaped chocolates, Peter Rabbit puzzles and and bubbles all in a cute tin pail.


All of the kids got to take home a book, also cheddar bunnies in carrot shaped cellophane bags.


Vanilla cupcakes with blackberry buttercream icing. Cupcake liners and toppers by Meri Meri.


The food table. Thankfully Max's nursery is decorated in a Peter Rabbit theme, so i had lots of decorations all ready at my disposable. The banner (which i am obsessed with) is by Rifle Paper co.


My friend Brittney let me use thing darling antique highchair for Max's smash cake photos. Hat and banner made by my mom and i, and the bib is from Etsy.


We had such yummy food! Veggies and ranch dip, chicken salad on croissants, chips, fruit salad cupcakes....


Mr. McGregor's veggie patch cupcakes. I made all the veggies out of Airheads candy. Cupcakes are chocolate with chocolate icing and crushed oreo cookies. I just bought a letter tray from target and hot glued white fencing from Michaels around it.


Smash cake was made by publix, and cake topper made by me.


Peanut butter and strawberry jam on wheat bunny sandwiches, and bunny shaped peeps dipped in chocolate.


I made sweet tea and blackberry lemonade (which i just noticed i spelled wrong on the chalboard). And my messy kitchen in the background.


Max and daddy!


Max and I.


Could only get a couple of pics of this boy in his party hat!


The birthday boy! Love him so much :)
