Considering Will is going to be 3 in just a couple months, I thought it was high time (aka way overdue time) to share his Le Petit Prince first birthday party with you all. I knew I wanted a classic book theme for his first birthday and I toyed with a few different ones but ultimately landed on Le Petit Prince. I just love the illustrations, the soft colors, and the sweet little boy in it. With that in mind, I didn’t want to go too over-the-top. I kept the theme mainly to the dessert table, food labels, and a “photo booth,” or rather a star backdrop with cutout illustrations as props.
For the dessert table, I made “planet” cake pops and sugar cookies with edible images. The cake and cupcakes were from Susie Cakes and the little star cookies were from Trader Joe’s. I DIY-ed the labels, cupcake toppers, and backdrop with images I found online and used a star cutter to cut out gold stars for the wall.
I laid out kid-friendly snacks on our kitchen table including homemade spinach banana muffins, puffs, peanut butter crackers, and fruit/veggie pouches. A mini gold balloon banner that said “Will is One” was the main decor for the table and I added star paper straws to the cups and Le Petit Prince labels to the food and drinks. Since Will is still allergic to dairy, he had a spinach banana muffin (which he actually still loves!) instead of a traditional smash cake. He’ll be introduced to plenty of sugary desserts down the line so I don’t feel too bad about it 😉
