Project Details

I wanted a Summer-themed 1st birthday party for my little girl Summer who was also born in Summer.  I started by designing and crafting a popsicle-style invitation and the rest followed. I made the sandcastle cake with a vanilla cake recipe in a castle mold. I hand crafted the tissue pom pom and fan-circle decorations, ocean-themed cookies and cupcakes.
