one jars

This party was for a one year old, but I knew that children of all ages would be there. A good way to include party guests of varying ages is to set out activities that they can just grab and do with little explanation. For example, these jars held bubblegum, mini bubbles usually used at weddings, sidewalk chalk, and sand shovels. The party was held outside at a park, so these were great for the kids to use there or to take home and have for later.

one water
Here is the drink container that I scored at Target at the last minute. It worked out great. Next time I’ll use some vinyl lettering on the front of the container to say something fun like “take a drink” or whatever. I bought bottled water in regular and mini sizes and I peeled off the wrappers to give them a cleaner look.

Check out this cool spoon from Mama Beth Bling . She engraves the names on herself. And best of all, it’s stainless steel so you don’t have to worry about tarnishing.

Have a baby turning one? If you are as diligent as I was with my kids, then she hasn’t been exposed to lots of allergens yet. So why make her birthday the first time? Make a cake just for her without tree nuts, peanuts, soy, eggs and dairy and you can have fun on her big day instead of worrying about something like this: my son has a sensitivity to milk and the dairy-filled frosting he smeared all over himself on his first birthday put a damper on the festivities as we had to stop the party to give him a full bath to calm his itchy, red skin. This recipe is worth the trip to the healthy food store for a little peace of mind.

Simple Cake

2/3 cup rice milk
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2/3 cup light agave nectar
1/3 cup applesauce
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325°. Cut 2 circles from parchment paper to fit 2 six-inch round cake pans. Lightly oil and flour the round cake pans and place parchment circles in the bottom. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice milk and apple cider vinegar. Allow to sit for 2-3 minutes to curdle. With a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat in agave nectar, applesauce and vanilla. Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until smooth. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of both cakes comes out clean. Let pans cool for 30 minutes and then carefully turn out onto a cooling rack. Once both cakes are completely cooled, stack (with a layer of frosting or organic jam between cake layers) and frost.

Frosting

(this may contain soy, depending on your margarine):
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated shortening
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated and dairy-free margarine, like Earth Balance
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup rice milk
Beat the shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for about 3 more minutes. Add the vanilla and rice milk. Beat for another 5 to 7 minutes until fluffy.
