Yesterday, we celebrated our baby girl's first birthday!
We threw a party on a small budget and I was very pleased with how it turned out!
We used tissue pom poms (even some made from old sewing patterns!), curling ribbon, dishes inserts that come in packaging for flowers, mason jars, roses, handkerchiefs and doilies and gum balls for decorating.
The cake was cupcakes with pink frosting, daisy sprinkles and cupcake wrappers cut with my cutter made from wrapping paper.
I made a time capsule from stuff I had here using a photo box and ribbon, artificial flowers and buttons and a penny from 2009, and her party invitation.
I made a birthday hat and bib from supplies I had here and also did the cloth triangle banners. My husband also put together a video on animoto.com which we watched at the party and was then put into her time capsule.
The food was made by us and the grandmas both brought as well!
Here are some pictures from the festivities: Sorry some of them are cut off, apparently they are too large for blogger and I am just too lazy to go reupload them! :) Enjoy anyway!
Happy Birthday Ellie! We love you!
