So, I’ve been meaning to do this post for a couple of days, but every time I log on, I get distracted by the posts on my dashboard (other people’s posts!) and run out of time. Hmmm…sounds like I need to get some discipline. 😉
I hit 100 followers this past weekend! Yay! (thanks Jenna for being #100) And to celebrate I thought a give away would be in order.
If you are the fancy schmancy super mom who creates themed birthday parties with dessert tables and amazing favors for each child’s birthday/ each year, you can probably just move on- or skip to the give away part! j/k- even if you’re supermom, I still love you!
Here at our house, we don’t do parties every year. My kids get 4 birthday parties with friends and themes and stuff. They get their 1st birthday, 8, 12 and 16th birthday parties. (we haven’t gotten to the 12 or 16 yet- we’ll be on our 2nd 8th party this year!)
But I still wanted to make the kids feel special and important on their big day, so in comes the Happy Birthday Banner!
I also made some cupcake stands using wood candlesticks and rounds (both purchased at Hobby Lobby)
For my daughter’s birthday I didn’t have many balloons, so I made paper accordion medallions and glued Happy birthday sentiments to the center.
Then, for each child’s birthday, I take some of my jars and fill them with that child’s favorite treats. My 2-year old just had her birthday, so we used fruit snacks, goldfish crackers, marshmallows and pretzels. The treats in the picture are kit kats and vanilla tootsie rolls. They add color to the decorations and make the kids so happy!
A close up of the cupcake embellishment- it’s my favorite part.
