Coen’s Pumpkin First Birthday Party

Coen’s First Birthday

We celebrated Coen’s first birthday on Sunday.  I went with a pumpkin/fall theme because I love this time of year.  Everything came out great.  Coen loved all the attention and of course the cake.

I used this pumpkin picture for the invites and created a chalkboard first birthday sign and printed it at Staples.  Originally I was going to have my mom create one because my handwriting looks like chicken scratches but I actually had fun making this on the computer.

I made a photo banner and my mom and sister made apple cupcakes with a cinnamon frosting.

The little guy and I both wore plaid shirts!  I got his in orange so he would match the theme.

I made him an organic apple pumpkin smash cake with a limited amount of sugar with a pumpkin cream cheese frosting that had a little more sugar than I would like but hey it was his birthday.

He was his goofy self despite having a cold, teething and still adjusting to weaning and the drop of all bottles.

It was stressful and a lot of work  but it was all worth it!

  1. So cute! It’s funny that we both did pumpkin theme. 🙂 I love the plaid shirt and your photo picture was a great idea! I would have liked to do something like that but I didn’t get it done in time.

  2. Cute! I may go with a pumpkin theme for my daughter’s 1st birthday next month. I call her Pumpkin all the time so it fits. 🙂
