It started with an idea to do something with cupcakes and took off from there. As Travis says, I have a tendancy to go a little nuts when it comes to party planning, but what can I say - I love every minute of it. I am by far my own worst enemy.
Every detail was account for from the tablescape to the homemade treats. I even had a dress made for Avery, a better picture of that to come later.
All in all, it was a great way to celebrate Avery's first birthday. I think she'll enjoy these pictures in the years to come.
The cupcake tower is a great find, I was so excited to finally find it after seeing it on someone's blog. I lined it with scrapbook paper and ribbon and added Avery's tutu to the bottom of it. Expect to see this at the all the parties to come, it is so versatile and I can change out the ribbon and paper each time.

She was so cute and methodically ate the icing on the cake without making too big of a mess of course.
