Lucas' First Birthday

My friend Flavia hired me to plan the decoration for her son's first birthday. The theme was the Circus, very colorful and cheerful. It was great planning everything with her and the party was a success!
Oh, and I also made the cake! A 2 tier chocolate cake with brigadeiro filling - yummy!!!

This was my first official project in this newly started business of party planning. I learned a lot and enjoyed the whole process. So happy that everything turned out great!

Here are some pictures of the dessert table, cake and all the little details that made everything so special!

I designed the invitation based on the circus theme and set off the creative process for the other pieces.

These cute cake toppers were made out of fondant.


A view of the dessert table: the cake, brazilian docinhos in colored paper cups,
 bonbons, truffles, popcorn boxes, marshmallows and beautiful swirl lollipops.

Utensils were wrapped in red napkins with personalized napkin rings.

The dessert table with the circus inspired red and white panel
and personalized banner.

A closer view of the cake.

Each table had a balloon centerpiece in mm's filled vases.

The cake toppers.
The favors were these cute boxes filled with goodies.
The boxes were made by Flavia's cousin and I designed the "Thank You" sign for them.
