Yep, I'm that mom that spends months planning the
party - party boards on Pinterest, white boards at home, and lists...so many lists!
And yes, I know that at my kids ages, the party is more for me than them, and I'm totally ok with that!
For Olivia's first birthday party we did a penguin/winter "one"derland theme, and in true birthday party fashion, I was up until around 2 am decorating the house with penguins and snowflakes as well as baking & decorating snowflake cupcakes and the cutest penguin cake (which will have it's own post soon).
|It's serious business eating a cupcake!|
For the snowflake I used white chocolate candy cane melts and piped them into snowflakes. I started out by piping them onto parchment paper with a snowflake template underneath. It was kind of a hassle so I ditched the template and ended up free handing them. I think I made 35-40 and picked the best ones to use.
Thinking about it now, I probably should've let the candy melts harden a little bit and maybe they would've been easier to work with...oh well.
