i just have to start by saying this was a week. one of those weeks were it seems like right up until 5:00 on friday, the world is just throwing challenges your way. happily, it’s the weekend. the week is behind us and we can now celebrate two very, very special first birthdays for two very special little girls!
two friends of mine just happened to have their little one’s parties scheduled on the same day…and i offered to help add a little somethin’ to the parties. i love doing party decor (see the grandest of them all here and here), thus our shift this week from the home to parties!
party #1: pink themed anything and everything. (note: this was awesome because i never get to do anything in pink!) we had a bigger space to work with so i went with a double ribbon banner. (i used a 1-1/2″ pink ribbon with white polka dots…from hobby lobby) and i pulled out every pink patterned paper i could find. we ended up with a pretty cute, pink explosion for a very adorable little girl’s birthday party (complete with a couple of paper flowers with a little sparkle!)
party #2: “you are my sunshine” themed party (love this, btw!) a friend at my day job really wanted a high chair banner for her little girl’s first birthday…that would totally capture the “you are my sunshine” theme. we worked together to find a style of banner, paper, ribbon and we came out with a pretty darn cute high chair banner (if i do say so myself). all supplies came from hobby lobby and with some help from my trusty cricut. i so can’t wait to see pics of this special little girl celebrating!
not to worry, today it’s back to home decor…re-nest studio has lots going on with new orders and getting ready for our upcoming craft show! stay tuned for much, much more, friends!
here’s to a crafty weekend!
