1st Birthday Bow Bash


Mint and pink bows set the theme for this unique and super fun 1st birthday party!

Design Inspiration

Bows, bows, and bows

Project Details

I made two large bow banners out of 1.5 and 1 inch satin ribbons. Tying bow after bow for hours upon hours was actually kind of relaxing. I did two layer cakes with hand painted gold fondant details. The gold luster dust is really amazing and that little tube goes a long way. One cake was vanilla with strawberry cream cheese filling the other chocolate with raspberry filling. The pink fondant bow on top of the mint cake really made it stand out.

My Cricut got a lot of use for this party! The gold bow toppers and #1 cake topper were cut with the Cricut from gold glitter paper. I found it at Michael’s for about $3 a sheet. The pink cupcakes were a variety of chocolate, vanilla and chocolate chip with soft pink icing. I did some halal marshmallow Rice Krispie treats and dipped them in chocolate. I also made tiny chocolate bows to add that extra interest. I dusted them with gold luster and did some white chocolate details as well. Favors were cute cookie jars that I baked 300 mini sugar cookie to fill. My client made cute heart cut outs with kids names for each jar. They looked very sweet.
