We had a simple peach double layer cake (I used this recipe, but did white frosting instead) & cupcakes for dessert. I saw a tutorial for apple & heart shaped cupcakes on pinterest using a small piece of rolled up aluminum foil that you tuck between the cupcake paper & the cupcake pan to create a slightly different shape for the actual cupcake. I thought this could apply to the peach shape too, so I made the cupcakes this way, frosted them with a few layers of different colored peach frosting, added white sugar sprinkles & garnished with greenery (I asked the whole foods florist if they are okay to put on food, apparently they’re used for wedding cakes all the time). The cupcakes were my favorite part, served in a little wooden crate just like a box of peaches! We served lemonade & pink peach sangria made with Roscato wine, peach sparkling water, sliced white peaches & pears.
I asked my friend Hana of Hooray Everyday if she could make some peachy party goods for us, she whipped up the most festive peach felt garland & adorable necklaces for all of the girls. I just love them, they’re the cutest keepsake to remember the day!
The afternoon ended with a frosting-faced naps & outdoor baths in the sprinkler. It was the perfect celebration for Claire, sweet & laid back, just like her.
Happy first birthday Claire Vivien, we love you to the moon & back!
