Kate set the bar high for her son Peter's very first birthday party: My inspiration came from one of Anna Bond's party invitations. It had a large bear on the front and from there we went with a grizzly bear, woodsy theme.

The cake was a five layer chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, raspberry preserves and chocolate buttercream, rich but yummy. My friend, who is a artist, made the balsa wood cake topper and the bear is made from chocolate. My husband was given the task of finding a few tree stumps and he did such a great job, they were perfect! For the favors I made simple bags our of parchment paper and filled them with gummi bears.

Overall the party was fairly simple as we just did cake, cupcakes and cookies but I loved creating the details that made it special. As you can see our son very much enjoyed it!

Thanks Kate!

We love a good party! If you'd like to share the good ideas and photos from your child's celebration with the Ohdeedoh community please submit through the "My Party" submission form.
