Moses turns One: The Party

Moses actually turns one next week but I wanted to do the party early before any of the holiday stuff really kicked in. Since we have been so busy we only started working on the party the evening before. I simplified a lot of the plans, but even with the last minute preparations everything turned out great. Our friends, the Kane’s, let us have the party at their loft and my friend Brooke made some amazing guacamole for the appetizer. For food we had “super tacos” and the cake was lemon cake with raspberry cream cheese frosting with fresh lemon curd. I made a large cake for everyone and then Moses got his own small cake. We slapped some labels on the drinks to make them fit the superhero theme, and I used leftover candy from the photoshoot I did last week for favors. Do all that and voila! You get one birthday party put together in about five hours.

    Seriously Jordan, can you please, telepathically maybe, send me some of your creativity? I can’t wait to receive my labels.
