Sweeter than a cupcake

When Caroline knew Olive's birthday was coming up she was very thrilled to think up having the party be a cupcake party.  She said, "That will be a great idea mom, it really will."  
And truly why are cupcakes all the rage right now?  Well, because they just make people happy, and that is exactly what our Olive does.  It was perfect.

Here are the tasty invitations...
I fell in love with IZZE soda up in New Hampshire, I actually purchased them because just looking at them make me smile.  They turned out to taste good so they made the cut for the party!
And sipping them with one of these makes me smile even bigger!  These babies are hard to find.  They have red and white ones a lot of places, but they are also very expensive at most of those places.  There is a store called Rock Paper Scissors in Wiscasset, Maine that sells them.  They are the cheapest place to get them and she charges almost nothing to ship them!  It is a small local business too, which is great.  There are lots of colors to choose from just call:  207-882-9930
150 Green Striped Paper Straws
To add a little flair to the napkins I added some pom poms.

It took Olive a while to dip into the cake because these two little ones, Caroline and Liam, had all of her attention.  They were so sweet with her.
Olive would get close to the cake and then stop and look at everyone watching.  She would just wait there like she was posing for us so we could snap some more pictures.  


It truly was a party and a show by this little love.  She had everyone laughing and smiling as big as she is here!
Here's to 1 Olive!!

That party could not be any cuter! You could seriously be a party planner, Spam. So cute! ANd, the best picture of all is Olive with her face in the cupcake cake. Oh my that is adorable. I'm pretty sure we need to clone your children so the world is full of beautiful, sweet little things. XO

Great job on the party! And could Olive be any cuter? Neither of my kids have dug into their cakes like that. I'm a little jealous. They just sit and look at it and then take little nibbles. Of course, your giant cupcake does look more enticing than the normal cupcake my kids get. Go big or stay home, right? Love it. Hey, I send you a message on facebook, asking for your address.
