Vegan 1st Birthday Party!!


So my son's first birthday is in March and I have already begin the planning for this joyous occasion. It is going to be a vegan farm animal party. Sounds like an oxymoron?

Well I'm vegan and my hubby is vegan for the year (I'll explain his project in a later post) and so it only seems fitting that our son will have a vegan party. The theme is farm animals because we call him our farm baby. (Back story. I interned at the Farm Sanctuary in 2009. I came back from the internship preggos ergo "farm baby".) I love to bake and I love to expose people to vegan cooking as well, so this is the perfect place to do so. My MIL will be making chocolate cupcakes from a recipe that she found in a Vegetarian Times magazine and since My husband is Colombian I have to include some good Colombian foods, including rice, plantains, and arepas. I also plan on making a good vegan birthday cake.

The best part of the party. PRESENTS!! (JK....No seriously) Hopefully our son will come home with a bucket load of clothes (HINT HINT to family and friends reading this) otherwise he will be spending his 2nd year on this earth naked.  

I know that my son won't even know that this party is for him nor will he even remember the day, but I want to make it special because 1 year ago in March his birthday became one of the most special days of my life.

Any birthday party suggestions?
