Ace had his first birthday over the past weekend and here are some of the highlights.
Ace’s party was a simple backyard BBQ. The only theme was “garden party” since my husband has worked so hard on his garden and the landscaping in the backyard. We hung up some simple decorations, a baby picture display, stuck some pinwheels in the garden, and voila – a garden party! Unfortunately my husband and I didn’t get any pictures because we were so busy hosting, but my father and my friend Jen got a few shots.
My favorite thing was Ace’s cake. We got it from a nearby cake shop, Leaf and Crumb. It is actually on the first page of their site right now. The cake turned out better than I had imagined! It was delicious too.
This blog is mostly (to my knowledge) read by our family and friends – but I do realize the cake has our son’s first name on it. So for those that don’t know, our son’s first and middle names are Henry Ace! I will continue to call him Ace on here, simply because I like his middle name almost better than his first. Ace suits his hardcore personality and his take-no-prisoners way of life.
So there you have it. Ace’s garden party for his 1st birthday. Have a great week!
