Happy 1st Birthday, Maddie!

Sweet Madeleine is turning one! Inspired by her Sweet and Sour Nursery and the candy tables of Amy Atlas, her mom is throwing her a candy-colored birthday party in San Diego.

Huge balloons are a must!

Almost everything you need for a fantastic event, candy tables included, can be found at Sweet Lulu. They have the sweetest plates and straws and napkins, and 36" balloons in solids and polka dots. You can use their cupcake kit to make your own fabulous cupcakes (I recommend the cookie-filled ones below), or you can have them delivered anywhere in the San Diego area from Cupcake Love. Etsy is filled with fabulous Happy Birthday banners, pennants, and other homemade decorations like pinwheels. I like these aqua and red ones from A to Zebra Celebrations. I think for a first birthday you should keep it short and sweet, so just serve small bites, like the ones I posted for game day from Kevin and Amanda. This link will take you straight to their chocolate chip cookie cups with baby blue icing! A cute touch would be to serve chocolate and strawberry milk with the cupcakes...

Holy moly there are a lot of links in this post! I suggest you get preggers right away so you can throw this party!
