Shelby's Sugar Shoppe
Well, I'm doing this out of order...Shelby's 1st Birthday was in June and I'm just now getting these pictures in. :)
I decided to go with a vintage Sweet Shoppe theme. There are a lot of things I would have done differently had I had more time but I still think it turned out pretty cute. She had a great time! :)

Iced Animal Cookies
Salt Water Taffy
Strawberry Sugar Cookies
We also had a variety of Sugar Wafer Cookies, donuts, and
White-Chocolate dipped Strawberry Marshmallows.
We made this flower arrangement from a zigzag container filled with floral oasis. We added pink carnations as the "frosting" and placed a taper candle in the middle. I had adorable lace ribbon to tie a bow at the bottom of the candle but ran out of time before the first guests were beginning to arrive! :( I got this idea from http://www.howdoesshe.com/cupcake-flower-centerpiece
I made Vanilla Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting (top), Pink Lemonade Cupcakes with Strawberry Lemonade Buttercream Frosting and a candied lemon slice (middle), and Snickerdoodle Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting (bottom).
The cupcake liner pompom arrangement is from the Vintage Valentine Party. See the tutorial here:
Shelby's Special Vanilla Cupcake
For the Party Favors, I put the various flavors of cupcakes in a small mason jar and decorated the lid. I also tied a plastic spoon and attached a label to each one.
My sweet friend, Rebecca gave this Birthday Party Hat to Shelby...the picture doesn't do it justice!!
The Birthday Girl in her hat! :)
Cupcakes make me happy, too!!
Here is another precious picture that my sister took of the Birthday Girl...just had to share!
