Real Party: Little Pumpkin’s 1st Birthday!

In an ideal world, I would have brought you this post back in October when all my readers were in pumpkin-mode. No one cares about pumpkins right now, right? But I’m hoping that we always care about cute parties!
My life (and crazy 1 year old) just aren’t allowing me to blog in a timely manner at the moment. I have several cool things to share and I will get them up as soon as humanly possibly, they may just be a little out of season. Ok?So…pretend its still October and take a look at this adorable Little Pumpkin party!

My daughter’s bff had her 1st birthday party. That is my best friend’s daughter (We have decided they are bff’s obviously). Lindsay threw an amazing party in her backyard to celebrate (of course!). I can’t wait to share all the details with you!

Jennafer of Oh Creative One created the invites.  They were perfect!
The hostess wore her pumpkin, of course. :)
Lindsay rented a few tables and chairs for the backyard.  Her mom made fabric pumpkins to cluster on the tables for centerpieces. Aren’t they amazing?!
Lindsay strung a banner of monthly pictures of little Akemi on the fence.  Some of those faces are priceless.
Lindsay set up “Akemi’s Pumpkin Patch” in a corner of the yard.  Since most of the guests were 1-year-olds, she decided to forgo a traditional activity. Instead, kiddos were encouraged to wear costumes, and they all posed for photos in the patch. Too cute.
Lunch was a taco bar, catered by one of my favorite spots.
The dessert table!
The desserts were as tasty as they were cute…
The star of the table was the pumpkin smash cake Lindsay made with a mini bunting. Too cute.
I made some pumpkin cake pops, Lindsay made pumpkin spice cupcakes, Akemi’s Grandma made mini pumpkin pies, and Deb made caramel corn. Lindsay also added some sugar cookies.  We made some of these pumpkins and scattered them around the table as well.

 At first Akemi was a little hesitant with her cake.

But she quickly figured out what wonderful things sugar and butter are. :)

Happy Birthday Akemi!

And since you haven’t seen her in a while…

…here’s my little butterfly posing in the patch. :)
