Jude’s First Birthday Cookies

I was honored when Martha asked me to do the cookie favors for her granddaughter, Jude’s first birthday party. “Of coarse the animals should be iced using the color palette for the party”, she said, “but what if each animal had a bright blue eye?” And that is the brilliance of Martha- those little details…

Animal cookies are super popular in our world of Sweet Dani B. Jungle themed baby showers and birthdays have become a favorite theme in the past few years and using various colors we have been able to keep this theme fresh, whimsical and fun!

SDB Jungle Sweets Table

Our Jungle Party Sweets Table features all the fun animals of the menagerie!

I absolutely loved using the color palette Martha picked for Jude’s party which was inspired by the adorable stuffed animals of Steiff. In an amazing way it kind of re-invented some of these animals!

Of coarse we had to include the polar bear cookie as arctic animals have been a theme in Jude’s room…

Some of our SDB “usual suspects” were included in the menagerie…

as well as some “animal exotics”. I so heart this armadillo and was super excited to ice him again!

We used clear top boxes with white paper shred to package the menagerie. I love the label added to each box by Martha’s staff- it gave these boxes a totally chic look!

Thanks again to Martha for thinking of us for Jude’s first birthday party! We had a great time working on the menagerie. To see the rest of the “juice” on Jude’s party, check out the full article in the October 2010 issue of Living. Life is sweet! Xo Dani
