We celebrated my Littlest One's First Birthday this weekend! It was a blast! I LOVE planning my girls' parties. They will only be little for such a short time, so we may as well enjoy it!!! I can't believe that a whole year has gone by since we welcomed our little sweetie to our family...
We did a rubber duckie theme. (As you can probably tell!) She loves taking baths, and has learned to say 'duckie'.
I made her cake using a 3D cake mold by Wilton. I found the blue tub at the dollar store and thought it would be a perfect base for the cake. I added marshmallows around the cake to look like bubbles. This was actually the second duckie cake that I made for her. The party was originally scheduled for the week before. We had to cancel because of a snowstorm. I sent the first duckie to preschool with my other daughter... I am now officially known as "The Cool Cake Mom". Heehee.
I bought these cupcakes froma a yummy local bakery and just put them on the stand and added the duckies.
And these were some of the party favors. These duckie soaps are super easy! I had been saving plastic baby food containers as molds. The soap is just glycerine melt-and-pour soap from the craft store. I filled each container about 2/3 full and let it set for a few minutes. Then I gently pushed the ducks into each. When they are completely set, they just pop out of the containers. Easy peasy.
I found some little duckie appliques at the craft store and ironed them on to pretty blue washclothes.
And this fun stuff is bubble bath confetti. So fun! You add it to running water and it makes bubbles. I bought it in bulk and put it into little baggies. The kids also got a CD of bathtime songs and bath crayons. We also had a "duck egg hunt". Since the party was indoors, we couldn't do the usual pinata, so the got their candy fix from searching for candy filled plastic eggs.
It was so much fun!!! If you are planning a child's birthday party this website has TONS of great ideas!
