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!
