With the help of my step-mom and mother-in-law we made the ‘Happy Birthday’ banner. Of course, we had to snap a photo of our family of three!
I used burlap fabric as a table runner and wood rounds to add dimension to the table. Fun fact: we DIY’ed the wooden rounds for our wedding 3.5 years ago! The hubby let me keep three;)
I wasn’t really ready to give my sweetheart a cake laced with sugar upon sugar so I searched and searched for a semi-healthy cake. At the last minute, like the night before, I landed on a black bean lava cake. I left out the chocolate chips and spice and voila we had her first cake! I topped it with homemade coconut cream and raspberries! Since there were two extra cakes I cut them in four for guests to try. Most enjoyed the cake.
With leftover paper from the Happy Birthday banner we were able to make a cake topper. I’m so happy with the way it turned out. We used tiny stickers to spell out her name.
Above the treats we hung a few pre made balls I found at TJ Maxx!
On the mantel we hung pictures from 1-12 months!
