The birthday boy really enjoyed the balloons!
Little owl sugar cookies
Damon's mini cake!
Sparkling sosemary limeade served in mason jars
The cake table
The buche de noelle cake & custom made fondant toadstool and gnome baby! (The cake was quite tasty!) The topper was from this etsy shop. She has so many adorable toppers. I want them all!
Damon was more interested in trying to eat the cupcakes than take a photo!
Singing "happy birthday"!
The little ones enjoying some dessert!
I got 36" balloons...they were insane. Dmitri really enjoyed them!
Brothers & balloons <3
I made felt gnome hats for all of the children. I was inspired by these hats!
Damon's hat was extra special. I "embroidered" it (if you actually know how to embroider, please don't look closely. I have never done it before and just "drew with my needle")
I had flowers and lantern terrariums as table decorations. I made the toadstool and peg gnomes.

Another lantern terrarium on the white table. In lieu of table clothes, I used a giant roll of white paper on the tables so that everyone (adults & littles!) could enjoy some crayon graffiti.
I'm happy that we had a wonderful time celebrating Damon August's first year and the blissful day that he was born. I think I'm ready to go back to normal life for now though!
