Adley's 1st Birthday

Adley is turning one next month and her mom asked me to do a banner to match with these Look Whoo's 1 party supplies. The colors are pink and brown and the decorations have a cute little owl on them. I have previously tackled making my own tie and rocket ship, but the owl was my most challenging yet! I think she turned out really cute though. I hope y'all enjoy your banner and have a fantastic celebration for the adorable Miss Adley!

Anya & Alyssa's 2nd Birthday

One of my MoM friends asked me to do a banner for her girls' 2nd birthday. The theme is rubber ducks and the color scheme is light pink and light yellow. I hope y'all enjoy your banner and have a fantastic birthday party! (Sorry about the dark pictures. I need to learn how to use my camera to compensate for the crummy lighting in our kitchen!)

Camy's 1st Birthday (and new product!)

Camryn is turning one and in addition to ordering a banner, her mom also asked me if I would be willing to do some cupcake toppers. I love trying out new and fun things so I didn't hesitate at all! I figured out a price that would cover my cost but not leave Becky hating me if they didn't turn out to be everything she hoped for and then some...and then I got started. After trying and retrying a few different things I finally got it all figured out and they turned out really cute. Since I know Becky won't complain even if she doesn't think they are great I also made her a little something extra. Becky, if you want to be surprised don't scroll down past the cupcake topper pics. If you want to be a party pooper, by all means scroll away. ;) Thanks for being willing to be my guinea pig for the cupcake toppers!

The color scheme for Camy's party is pink, orange and lime green.

The cupcake toppers are 2 inches in diameter. The back circle is made of cardstock and the front circle is printed paper backed with cardstock for stability. The front circle is mounted with foam tape for a 3D effect.

Now, for the surprise pics. :)

I used my extra materials to make Becky a mini banner that she can use to decorate the high chair for the smash cake pictures, the front door, etc. The mini banner circles are 2.5 inches in diameter and the banner attaches with ticky tack.

Jonah's 1st Birthday!

Wow, I never realized how many of us had kids right around the same age until I started doing these banners. So many 1st birthdays this summer! Jonah is turning one and the color scheme for his party is yellow, lime green, blue and orange. Cristina, I hope y'all have a great time and enjoy your banner!

Annabelle's 1st Birthday!

Annabelle is turning one and the theme for her party is ladybugs. The color scheme is red, yellow and black. Katie, I hope Annabelle has a great first birthday and y'all enjoy your banner!

This baby girl banner was designed to match a nursery decorated in primary red and blue. Print paper is a primary plaid with blue, red and yellow solids. There are baby girl faces on the ends. Amy, I hope you like it!

New product! High chair 1st birthday mini banner!

Okay, I'll admit it. My twins are turning one. Denial and procrastination have been my friends, but in the last few weeks I have finally had to admit that I have a party to plan. I had been thinking about making some high chair banners and finally decided last week to give it a shot. I love how they turned out! These are attached with ticky tack because that worked best for our high chairs, but they could also have the usual ribbon loops on the end. They will be so cute for when the boys eat (or in Mason's case, don't eat) their smash cakes next week! This is a mini banner. Circles are just 2.5 inches in diameter.

Pricing in my Etsy store will probably be $12, but you can expect a discount if you are ordering along with a birthday banner!
