Zander turns 1! Indianapolis, Indiana Personal Baby Party

March 20, 2018

“Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?” -Matt Groening

ONE!  Guys, my little stinker turned one year old last month!  And, since he’s, ya know, ONE, and doesn’t really have opinions he can clearly communicate to me yet, I decided this party was really for the parents. Soooo….


Ha!  I am a bit of an extrovert, and since WAY back when [think, middle school basement parties], I have LOVED throwing parties.  I was seriously the girl who used clip art to design and print out invitations to pass out at school.  I’d invite friends over to dance, play silly games [the credit card game, anyone?], and for just general merriment.  And any excuse would do.  St Patricks Day party?  Of course!  Pool party?  Yes please!  Halloween?  Duh!

I’m excited to have a tiny person to plan parties for now.

And since I of course took photos of his first birthday, I thought I should share them with you guys.

Here he is!  Our delightful [also extrovert] little one year old, with our lovely family, friends, and a bunch of doughnut stuff!


PS: More of this adorable little dude soon… like, his cake smash… and some adorable portraits of him.

PPS: In case you wondered, we gathered doughnuts from 4 different places [uh, go big or go home, right?]  Fan favorites are Rise’n’Roll [if you haven’t been, you MUST check them out and get their carmel donut] but we also gathered from Longs Bakery, Taylors Bakery and The Donut Shop.

PPPS: Yes, R and I wore donut shirts ;).
