Gavin's Candyland

Gavin turned 1 on April 17th! I do not know where this last year has gone.We had an amazing party for my little man on Saturday. The theme was Candyland, as in the board game. I always wanted to do a candy buffet (can you see how much I love candy, oh wait it's not MY party, hehe) and I figured why not? I think it turned out pretty awesome. My friend Kristi from Your Sugar Rush made the birthday cake and she did a wonderful made a perfect addition to my the candy buffet! Here are some pictures of the day...

Mmmmm....yummy cake!
Let me tell you, it was SOOO good, and SO worth breaking the rules (Get Fit Challenge has 1 week to go)
You mean I get to hit it and try to break it?? Yeah buddy!
Silly Daddy!


  1. How cute it all of that?!!! I totally saw Kristi's cake on Facebook and wondered who thought of that cute theme and was so excited to see it was yours!!!
    All the details are so adorable, so fun! You are so creative! I love it all!
    Happy Birthday little guy! You got some great pictures! Love your hair dark!

  2. This was so cute!! Your theme was so awesome and you decorated everything perfectly! I love the cake table (for obvious reasons ;) and the centerpieces are totally cute! Glad that he had such a great first birthday and thanks for thinking of me to make his cake, it's one of my most favorite cakes so far!! I think it has something to do with your themes. You look great by the way, I don't know if I told you that or not and I love your hair. Good job super Mom! Everything looked perfect!
