We celebrated Alexander’s birthday this past Saturday. All of his grandparents (my mom, my dad and stepmother and Jason’s parents) came down for the occasion. In addition, we had about 25 other guests, mostly our friends, some with kids and some without.
I took Friday off to party plan. The theme of the party was “birthday party.” Eff these fancy Pinterest parties! (Though you know I pinned a bunch of them!) We got a bunch of appetizers from Costco and decorations and balloons from Party City.
That brown stuff is Brownie Brittle and I think it has crack in it. The cake was from Publix. If you order a first birthday cake from them (it has to actually say 1st birthday in the icing), they give you a free smash cake for the baby. The smash cake was actually really big. I thought they’d just give him a cupcake or something.
He didn’t know what to do at first, but quickly put his hands into the cake. Not sure how much of it he actually ate but he got it all over himself and had a good time.
