        Nina's was a few days shy of 2 months ago, we kept it simple, lol! Mostly since we were moving not long after and we had no family/friends around there (Pensacola). We took her out to Applebees with us and let her try different foods (parts of our meals) and gave her a cupcake. My husband didn't want her to have a mini cake full of sugars, since she was only going to be 1 and we especially didn't wanna make a huge mess at the restaurant. We got her a couple new toys that she loved, but her bigger presents are what I've ordered more recently, now that we're settled in...the bed, organizer, 8 billion bigger dresses, and like 10 new toys xD

              I think the "keep it simple" advice was more for me than for my baby, lol. Her birthday got away from me because I kind of let my mom hijack it and we had a lot of family show up, but it still ended up being okay. My biggest fear was that Maddie would be panicky amid so many people she didn't know, but she ended up opening up and running around and having fun, so it was good for everyone.

                The best tip I found (yes Pinterest) was to scoop out ice cream into individual cupcake liners, keep them in a cupcake pan or something - stack in freezer and pull out when about to be served. Guests can grab and go!
