A Candyland Birthday Party

A sweet first birthday party for our little boy! It was a day filled with family, friends, bubbles, candy, and fun!
I wrapped giant whirly pops and placed them everywhere.

Briggs gasped when he saw the tents and balloons going up:
A lollipop garland:
Entry to the party: “Lollipop Row.”

He ran up and down the path!

I made these giant whirly pops:


A Candy Buffet: fun for the kids and the adults!

Best ever cake pops! Delicious and a decoration! Made by my mother…contact me via email on my “Contact Me” page if you want some for yourself!

The “Smash” Cake:

He was hesitant at first……

But an expert by the end!!!!!!

Happy birthday, little monkey!
