Happy birthday Blakesley Grace Sutter!
To help celebrate the first birthday of Bachelorette alums Ryan and Trista Sutter‘s daughter, friends and family enjoyed an Alice in Wonderland-themed party, held April 3 at the Sonnenalp Resort in Vail, Colorado.
Trista opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the birthday bash that she planned with Natalie Klein of the Hot Moms Club. The party included everything from custom-made cookies from Edible Gifts Plus, to a candy bar and Chadwick Bay apple juice, to customized invitations by Tiny Prints, to personalized loot bags with Mabel’s Labels.

CBS: How was Blakeley’s first birthday party? We hear it was an Alice in Wonderland theme. Is that her favorite?
TS: “It was great! No…she actually has no idea who Alice is, but I was inspired by a movie poster I saw and since Max had a “land” kinda theme (his 1st birthday was a Candyland theme), I figured she should have her own “land” as well. Besides, I knew she would look adorable in an Alice inspired dress by Miss Things Boutique.
CBS: What was her favorite part of the party?
TS: “Since she’s only saying a few words right now, I can’t know for sure, but my mommy intuition tells me that her favorite part was having everyone there sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her. She loved it!”
CBS: Who were her guests?
TS: “We had 26 kids there who are either good friends, Max’s buddies from school, or neighbors. It was a packed house, but from what I could tell, everyone really enjoyed themselves.”
CBS: Did big brother Max have a great time too? What did he like best about the party?
TS: “Max had so much fun and without a nap, that’s saying a lot! I would say that his favorite part was jumping onto my dad in the pillows with his buddies Knox and Annie.”
CBS: We hear there were custom-made cookies that read “A Very Merry Unbirthday” – please explain.
TS: “Yes, and they fit perfectly with our Wonderland theme, being that we wanted to focus on the tea party portion of the movie. We also had yummy cookies that said “eat me” too, and had they not had wrapping on them, Blakesley would’ve devoured them herself! We also had delicious Petit Fours, all by Edible Gifts Plus.
CBS: We hear the guests received goody bags from Jewels and Pinstripes, OK! and Hot Moms Club. What were some of the favorite items?
TS: “OMG! Everyone was so excited about the goody bags…me included! Jewels and Pinstripes did a fabulous job (as they always do!) putting them together. I would say a couple of the favorite items are the gift certificates to Stride Rite, the bag itself which was a monogrammed quilted duffle from Stephen Joseph, and the plates (that said “eat me”), cups (that said “drink me”), and T-shirts (that said “squeeze me”) from Em Tanner Designs.
CBS: How has Blakesley’s first year been? Different than Max’s first year? Easier? More hectic with both the kids?
TS: “Blakesley’s first year has been the best year of my life. It is definitely more hectic, but that’s the nature of it all…add another person, albeit tiny, to the mix and the juggling act gets a bit more chaotic. I do have to say that even though it is a bit harder, it is also more filled with love and laughter, and for that, it is worth it…a million times over!”
