Mila's First Birthday Party

Monday, August 12, 2013

We had a little party for Mila's first birthday on the weekend and the weather could not have been more perfect. It wasn't a big group but fun nonetheless and Mila seemed to have a great time with her friends and cousins.

We weren't going to do much in terms of decorations--hang a few crepe balls here and there; a few balloons and of course a cake but then I got an offer I couldn't refuse. My friend Tara, who lives in my neighbourhood, is starting an event company and asked me if I would be interested in having a dessert table at the party. She'd get some photos for her website and portfolio and I'd get a beautiful table full of delicious sweets. Um ok!

I didn't really know what to expect and basically let her go with her ideas. What an amazing job she did! Everyone loved it. There were vanilla cupcakes, a french orange cake, salted caramel truffles, raspberry, vanilla and chocolate filled macarons, sugar cookies shaped like a 1 and even a smash cake for Mila.

Can you say yum?

The party was fantastic and I'm so thankful to Tara for her beautiful work. She doesn't have her website up and running yet but if you're interested in working with her you can email her here.
