Way back in April, I started helping my niece plan my Great Niece's 1st Birthday Party! It was such an exciting time for us and I was so honored to be asked to help! There was plenty to do, pick out her outfit, plan the invites, her favors, the decorations, just to name a few things. I had to get busy creating all these great ideas!
Today I want to share some of the pictures from the party today with you.
I should start at the beginning. My niece wanted an Owl Theme. That was her them for the shower, so she thought it would be fun to use it for Kaylee's birthday too. It really was a great idea! We started by creating the invites for the party.
I blocked out the personal info in the picture, but the Explore wrote out everything beautifully! I used Bella Blvd. Birthday Girl papers for the patterned layer and Recollections for the solids. I just want to add that Micheal's and AC Moore saw A LOT of me from April through July. We tied pink tulle bows on them. So pretty!
Next we went to work on designing the centerpiece, hat and banner for the baby. The links to Etsy and Pinterest were flying back and forth between us. We found so much inspiration out there, it is incredible how talented people are. My niece is quite a planner and made sure that the baby's 1st year birthday pictures were taken early so that she would have them in time for the party. Smart girl...
I used all Cricut cuts on these. The font is Sophisticated, it was perfect for the decorations.
Sara. It was so excited to see some of my creations professionally photographed.
Here's my little sweetie in her high chair with the banner on it.
Here are the centerpieces.We made 14 of them. I used owls from Create A Critter and Creative Memories, Tiny Treasures. The flowers with the birthday accessories were a free file from Too Cute By Jessica, she has the most adorable SVGs. I stocked up on Micheal's pails, paper grass and ordered the little buckle jewels from Oriental Trading. Some more tulle and they we perfect!
Finally, I want to share the beautiful family!
I will be back tomorrow with more pictures an more about the party!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
