Reese's Pieces Birthday

(Invitation made by Ashlee over at )
This post is a year late! I threw this party when my 2 year old turned 1. A year later I would have done a lot better taking pictures of the different things I did, but oh well, you learn something everytime! I think I'll do this party again someday when she is older, becuase after all, her name is Reese!
The Table:
The banner:
The cake (this was made with a cookie pan) Was Peanut Butter Pound cake with chocolate frosting and Chocolate fondant.

The craft: We made our own Giant Peanut Butter cups. Using coffee liners we poured chocolatein the bottom, then placed (already prepared) flattened P.B rounds in the middle and topped off with more chocolate. Then refridgerated to take home

My cutie scared of the candle.
I know 1 year olds arn't "supposed" to have peanut butter, but with a name like reese she couldn't be allergic! And I'm not a paranoid mommy.
The game. I had everyone right down as many Reese's Peanut Butter product they could think of (including holiday shapes) in 1 min. (I can't remember now but I believe I had found 43 different kinds) and the winner got that huge candy bar pictured below.
The Candy Buffet:
Reese's Puffs
Reese's Pieces
Reese's Chips
Reese's Fast Breaks
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Large, Small, and Mini
Reese's 100 calorie
Peanut Butter Sandwhich Cookies
Cookie Recipe from Our Best Bites

I made the banner, with my cricut for the letters, and just folded a fan and pulled it in a circle.

The onsie I made myself. I cut a stencil and hand painted it.
