An Animal of a Party

Our animal party was wild (I even sported some leopard pants).  Rocco had a great first birthday party.  He went totally nuts over the cake.  Like, it took no prodding at all and I think he may even think cake to be a daily meal now?!  It was so fun to celebrate with family and friends and thank you dear readers for sharing in the celebration with me (party inspiration found here)!

PS. My pink bow is from Ban.do (comes in black + gold too) and I LOVE it.

    I so want to be Rocco stuffing all that cake into my mouth — looks like he had fun! Every element of the party is just wonderful. You did a fantastic job putting things together, Trina!

    What a menagerie of fun! Love the cake and I don’t blame him for wanting cake everyday. I’ll have it for breakfast any chance I get.

    Thanks, so much Tracey! No, I can’t take credit for that one. Just came up with the idea. I was hoping the trunk would be raised up in the air but it was just too heavy. A local cake shop made it and I was so pleased! xo . t

    Eeeek! That cake is so adorable. The whole party looks too darn cute. You did a great job, Trina. And I also have to say: that is a nice eight point above your fireplace. Did the hubby get that one?

    Thank you! Why yes, that deer is one of my hubby’s prized possessions. In fact, he wasn’t so sure about letting me put it over the mantle as it belongs in his manly office ;)

    Most of the animals are made by Schleich and from Target. They make the best animals. And some are just cheapies from Target or Toys R Us. I spray painted a few gold and white just to add some interest and because I like gold – ha! xo . t
