Sammy’s First Birthday


Sammy’s first birthday party was a fun {and sugar!} filled afternoon- I made the Magnolia vanilla birthday cake as well as strawberry and chocolate cupcakes and cotton candy, and served up circus peanuts, Cracker Jack, animal crackers, Mexican coke in bottles and milk for the kiddies {strawberry or chocolate!}. Oh, and our adorable 6 year old neighbor made homemade snow cones to order. ¬†Phew! ¬†Happy birthday sweet Sammy!!

    Jennifer, the funny thing is that I have had that tablecloth for years- I pulled it out of the cabinet and couldn’t believe how perfect it was for the party! I think I originally bought it at Napa Valley Vintage Home in St. Helena, CA. They may actually still carry it. ;)

  6. Oh I love that store! I’ll have to check it out – thanks!! And, Happy Birthday to your little lad :)
