Ice Cream 1st Birthday Bash and *Link Party*

Pin It


 It's Party Time!!


I shared with you last week that my twin boys just turned one! This past weekend we threw a birthday bash in their honor. First birthdays are the BEST!
I had cute little man outfits made for them - complete with a button down vest and bow tie. They were such handsome little studs!


A party isn't a party without cake; and boy was there cake! Who wants to come over and help us eat the leftovers?? I made one large cake for all the party goers and two small cakes - one for each birthday boy. I poured chocolate ganache over each cake and topped them with upside down ice cream cones so it looked like they were melting all over the place. (One of the birthday boys is certainly my child - he scraped off all the ganache and ate that first.)
I also made little ice cream cones - and no it's not cake inside. I will post about those real soon. Adorable and delish!
I filled clear milk bottles with candy and tied balloons to them, and also had large blue, green, and orange polka dot balloons floating around. Enlarged photos of the birthday boys were on the tables, and their baby books were on display for the guests to look through.
It was such a fun day celebrating my two favorite little men!

Now onto the Back For Seconds Social!

Please tell your friends about this party! Link up and tweet, facebook, blog, instagram your besties and tell them the Back For Seconds Social is where it's at! You guys rock!

What a DARLING birthday party you threw! I am LOVING the ganache dripping down the sides, it made the cake over the top amazing! Can't wait to hear the "scoop" on those little cones that aren't filled with cake. {I totally just cracked myself up}
