Corban's First Birthday

I've been hesitant to post pictures from Corban's First Birthday because I haven't finished taking photos of all the decorations :)  My mom was in the hospital so Corban's party was pushed back a week and I just didn't get them all done.  So, I have plans to finish them and restage the mantel :)

My sister did his invitation.  I love the grey/green combo.

It is really hard to find boy fabric.  I picked these up at Hobby Lobby and made Corban a bib and bunting for his high chair.

Our friends that came over were on a vegan diet -- I had to come up with foods they could eat as well.  Easier said than done.  I simplified my menu and served fruits and veggies with coconut milk fruit dip and cashew based veggie dip, guacamole, hummus and tortilla chips.  I also served non-vegan cupcakes and mini french silk pies.

There's a reason my mom always decorates my cakes.  My pitiful attempt :)

The cupcakes looked cute though.  I made the sugar using the same color as the smash cake.

Next time I make miniature French Silk pies I need to roll the crust thinner and pipe more filling -- it was too much crust.  And I need to make sure the butter is fully incorporated in the pie filling -- I personally gag biting into butter.

I'll get this post updated as soon as I can with the rest of the decor!
