It's Party Time! {Maybe}

We've had a busy week. Oh, who am I kidding, we've had a busy MONTH! {Isn't it supposed to slow down a bit after the holidays?} Anyway, this last week, in particular, was especially busy. My aunt and uncle came up for a visit, and we had so much fun catching up. We had our regular homeschool routine, plus dance lessons on Tuesday night. Kam's 12 month Well-Child Check, and preparations for little Sweet Pea's birthday including shopping trips, and decorating.

The girls and I have spent a LOT of time making decorations for the party that is planned for tomorrow afternoon. So isn't it fitting that Kenners has been throwing up all day? Yeah, I thought so too. Ah well, that's life ;)

So, you want to see what kinds of crafty goodness we've been up to?

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

First on our list was to make these tissue paper flower decorations. Aren't they the sweetest? I saw that Kelly made these for her daughter's first birthday, and I fell in love with them. You can find the tutorial on Design Dazzle {quite possibly my new favorite site!}

These little cuties will be gracing the tops of the cupcakes. So easy-peasy. I just used a circle punch, the girls put the stickers on, I punched two small holes to insert the toothpicks, and voila!

Kam's Happy Birthday Sign ;) Another fun and easy project that Sierra and Makenna had a blast helping with.

And finally, our Candy Bar. The funniest part about this is that I am the one who is constantly complaining about having too much candy in the house. So, what do I do? Go out and buy a bunch of candy as favors, of course.


I found these adorable take-out boxes to fill with said candy. And in a hilarious twist of fate, because of sickness and such, quite possibly half of the {already small} guest list won't be attending. That's right, I'll be stuck with all this candy. Isn't that the way?

What kinds of craftiness have y'all been up to?

I'm trying to figure out if there is anything that you don't do well, Liz! The decorations are beautiful and those cute cupcake toppers are adorable. I cannot wait for the party tomorrow. I love you all so much!

I love it Liz! When I first saw the tissue paper balls I LOVED them. Makes me want a girl. I guess I could still do them for my boys?? I don't know.

I love the candy bar...so much fun and the cupcake toppers are just adorable.

Caden had a fever Friday night and a bad stomach ache. It was like a 24 hour bug. Maybe she will be completely over it by morning!

Love your banner too! Enjoy the party tomorrow. I hope she is feeling better and everyone comes. I know how much work it is to put all of it together! ;O)

Either way she will have a memorable first birthday!

Everything looks so great! Maybe you can push it to next weekend since everyone is sick?? You never know if the other girls are gonna have it tomorrow. :( Hoping they don't!!

Have so much fun!

Oh no! I hope the birthday girl feels well enough for her party tomorrow! And hopefully some guests can show up too. Y'all worked so hard, you and the girls did a fantastic job. Beautiful decorations and I bet they were so much cheaper then anything you can buy in the store- and sooo much better.

Let us know how tomorrow goes or if you end up postponing the event. Good luck!

Jenny said...

I'm so sorry Kenners is sick. Throwing up is the worst! I hope she is better soon!

I love all of the decorations and would love to go to a party with a candy bar!

Great job on the decorations! Such a bummer that Kenners is not feeling well.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

Rachel Sue said...

This is too cute! I think I may steal some of your ideas for our next party!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

All the pink is so cute! I love the idea of a candy bar...though I don't think I am brave enough to try that with my boys! They would be sugared up for months:) I love the tissue paper flowers, and the banner is so adorable. I hope everyone is feeling better and the party was a huge success!

Kelli said...

What cute decorations for the party. I love the tissue flowers hanging from the light and the banner! Cute, cute!

Tiffany said...
