I have loved planning the kids' Bday parties. Mark, Caroline and Grayson all have Bdays within 3 days of each other and Grant and I are within 3 days of each other. CRAZY and not at all planned! Anyway when I was deciding which Bday to share I decided to share Caroline and Grayson's first joint party. I really wanted Grayson to have something special for his 1st Bday but didn't want to do 2 parties. I decided on a Winnie the Pooh theme. I used 1st birthday party stuff for Grayson and all the Pooh characters for Caroline. I set the table in the kitchen with the 1st Bday party things and the Dinning room had all of Caroline's party stuff. I used some stuffed Pooh characters we already had on the table for decorations.
Here are the cakes we made. Mark decorated Grayson's and I did Caroline's. Grayson's was a chocolate box mix doctored up and it was YUMMY! You can find the recipe here. Caroline's was a cupcake cake made with lemon cupcakes. Both cakes had buttercream icing. I think we did good for novice's!
Here is the kitchen table with the cakes and the dinning room set-up with the food. We had our standard party fare....chicken salad croissants, chips, veggies, and soda. I used Pooh "throw-away" sippy cups for the kids. I never throw those cups out we use them forever! All the kids took one home. I put labels on them that I made with my label maker.

I have so many ideas and can't wait to have 3 parties this year!!
