Omar was turning one and his parents wanted to plan a soccer-themed spectacular. Mom and Dad's favorite team is Barcelona, so we were tasked with bringing a festive, European sports vibe to our Chicago playroom. 

As always, baker Joanna was up to the challenge. 

Accented by a fabulous banner from Claudia, a fondant, Barcelona-themed fondant cake was flanked by edible soccer-themed creations, including dipped pretzels, chocolate lollipops, and dipped oroes. 

Rosie provided spectacular soccer columns and "1" centerpieces.

The family also wanted a little extra-special entertainment from their favorite music school, Bucktown Music. Miss Patty (not pictured) joined us for singing, dancing, and musical games, perfect for the one-year-old set.

All in all, it was a huge win! 

Thanks for celebrating with us, Omar! Happy Birthday!
