With that said, I thought I'd walk down memory lane and share a party with you - the kiddo's first birthday party. The theme was bumblebees (the most beloved of the insects). All of the photos below were taken by the wonderful Jaime Scott.
This is a picture of the smash cake. I kept it simple - just a small rectangular vanilla cake with yellow frosting.
If I recall correctly, I designed the cupcake toppers using a free bee clipart download, and I added some concentric circles in Publisher. I printed them in color on cardstock, and added the fun, bouncy wire.
There were two cake options for everyone else: Cupcakes with yellow frosting, or the beehive cake above. I originally wanted a cake that looked like this, but cake decorating is not my forte. So, I went a little crazy with yellow food coloring and almond slices, and I think the finished product is cute enough.
