I wanted to do an outdoor first birthday party. I also wanted to save cost by using things I already had around the house. I love all things natural. I used moss, moss balls, and furniture that I already had and decorated around those things.
My favorite item was the cupcakes I baked in terracotta planters. The chocolate cupcakes looked like dirt, I used a green straw for the stem of the flower, and cut live flowers and put them in the straws and walla! The kids loved them once they realized they were edible!
