It is hard to believe that four years ago, when I started contributing for Project Nursery, I was a new mom to just baby boy #1, and today, I am sharing the first birthday of baby boy #3! Needless to say, I have been one busy mama! My original intent was to throw a big ol’ birthday bash, but then reality set in, and I scaled back a lot. I had already designed the paper goods and ordered fondant toppers from Edible Details for the cupcakes, so at least I had that. The rest of the party plan came together the night before and the morning of. I wanted to share this with you all to show that with little to no planning, super things can still happen.
The theme was “Super Baby,” and instead of typical super hero colors, I chose melon, mint, gray and butter for the color palette. I printed up a few printable items at home, ordered two cakes from my local grocery store the night before, whipped up a pot of chili and invited our closest friends over for cake.
I took some plain wooden spoons and stamped them with iconic super hero jargon.
Play on words to go with your theme, like I did here with some mini plastic milk bottles labeled “muscle milk.”
Don’t underestimate a good grocery store cake. Top it with some Nestle Mint Chocolate Chips, and you have a super quick, easy and yummy cake! Did I mention budget-friendly too? I scored both cakes for $15 total.
For favors? These Ring Pops (kryptonite pops) fit perfectly into these darling vending capsules and cost only .65 cents each!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, oh…what’s this? Cake?!
Hmm… Lemme try this.
I’ll help myself, thanks!
Ummm….sorry, but I don’t think I like cake.
