Honey Bea's First Birthday Party

"First things first...We are truly blessed to have the means to set a pretty table and invite our friends to join us for good food and fellowship. I am mindful that many are not so fortunate. My daughter has a passion for the work of the Food Bank. As a singer-songwriter, she has written and recorded a song that is the anthem for the world wide Crop Hunger Walk project. Her song, "Raise Your Voice" is featured in their video. I've included a link in the side margin of my blog. I hope that it will encourage you to support projects in your community that contribute to the effort to overcome hunger. 
Things have been buzzing at Honey Bea's house.  First birthday parties are a pretty big deal, and KC outdid herself in planning Beatrice Emaline's special celebration.  The invitation simply said, "Come for cake and ice cream," but oh it was so much more.  Come along, and I'll share some pictures of the day with a few observations about details.

 It was a gorgeous afternoon, and everything was ready for a party...

The table and the seating group that KC built were perfect for extra seating on the front porch.  KC found the beat up Adirondack chairs on the curb, dragged them home and rebuilt them...They are so comfortable.

 It's party time at the bungalow...

... KC made the puffy tissue flowers.  So darling.

 Cupcakes from the talented Cookie Princess...The smash cake was made by my talented daughter-in-love @ The Blackberry Vine.
Thanks to Sonia @ Miss Bloomers, I learned where I could find these darling bee skeps at a  local store.  They were a hit at Honey Bea's party.  The delightful bee platter was a gift from my dear friend Kathy.  She bought it with Beatrice in mind.  We found the girly dessert plates at Nell Hill's in Kansas City.

Beatrice Emaline is ready for her smash cake rendevouz...Let the fun begin!
