Over the years I have been to many first birthday parties and this was one of the best! I’m a little byist of this 1st birthday party because it was my son’s Carter’s birthday party. Since he is the “prince” — some day he will inherit this crazy entertainment business, it was fitting that I make a King and Queen balloon as one of the centerpieces.
I opted to make the guest of honor’s balloon bigger than mom and dad’s. After all he was the guest of honor.
Since Carter only has 8 teeth in his cute little head, I thought his balloon figure should have 8 teeth too! I make the royal sculpture a baby rattle — with a gold handle. After all his the “prince”. The statue stood just under 24 inches in height.
This April 2008 I will be entertaining for 24 years and this was the first party that I can remember that the guest of honor ate their cake. Yes, my son wasn’t that messy, but he ate 3/4 of this smash cake. The whip cream had no effect on him. He must take after dad and like sugar. Hmmmmm….sugar. He did crash early that night. It was a big day for all of us.
This party could not go without entertainers. We had Fran Myles a face painter that I work with painting kids and adults, while Angel Contreras drew a really cool picture of Carter. He can really draw!
I have to say now that I’m a dad of a one-year old. Where did the year go?
