So this post is only 2 months late! Somehow these last 2 months have disappeared into thin air. I finally have a few minutes to sit and reflect and post about Fischer's 1st birthday party. It was a great day! As they say the first birthday party is for the parents and boy is that true. I had visions on hand making everything so I had to rein in my thoughts to something more realistic. I did make Fischer's cake and decorated it with fondant toy links. Those toy links were Fischer's favorite toy so it only fit that I put them on his cake. Then what is better in the hot summer than grilling out and swimming in the pool! Everything turned out perfect. And most of all Fischer LOVED his birthday cake.
One other special thing that I made for Fischer is a birthday banner. This is something that I will bring to every birthday party for him. I saw the idea on a blog and loved it. I even built in a little pocket behind the cupcake to someday put a special treat in it for Fischer so he knows when he sees his birthday banner to look for it. For his first birthday we hung it up behind him where he ate his cake but of course didn't get a good picture of it. I did take some pictures of it as I made it though.
Here's some more pictures of his birthday.
