Hi everyone! Sorry to be missing this week. My daughter’s first birthday was this week so we celebrated then, and her party was today. Her theme was cupcakes. I found her the cutest little dresses to wear on her birthday and her party day. I made cupcakes, K’s smash cupcake and cake pops. I found cute little “1st birthday girl” themed party supplies that had a cupcake on them. I used my Cricut Imagine Yummy Cartridge to make a few items, too.
For birthdays, we keep things small and simple. Homemade Cake, well, cupcakes, ice cream, chips, dip and pickles with family. This is the way that both my husband and myself have celebrated our birthdays growing up. So for now, that’s what we will do for our little ones. Some how it ends up being a week-long celebration. Great times!
Here’s a peek into her celebration:
High chair decor. On the wall: Cupcake cut from the Yummy Cartridge using the fit to page. Number 1 cut from the Plantin School Book Cartridge at an 8.8. I ran the 1 through the Cuttle Bug using the Swiss Dots Folder and wrapped a ribbon around it. I pop doted the 1 to the cupcake. The smaller ones are cut and Cuttle bugged at 4 inches. On her high chair I printed three banners from the Yummy Cartridge, changed the colors a little and cut more 1′s just like before. The banner I used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes and set eyelets to run embroidery floss through and tie together. The 1′s are pop dotted to the banner.
Gift Area: I printed and cut the Cupcake and Party from the Yummy Cartridge using the fit to page and print and cut another cupcake and 1 the same as over her high chair. I had an extra small 1 and threw it up between the words at the last minute. The tags o the pink bags I cut and printed as well from the Yummy Cart. I cut each of the 3 cupcakes in the handbook at 5 inches and made the same small “1′s” as before, I popped them up on the tag. I punched a hole and set an eyelet in each cupcake and ran floss through them to attach to the bags.
And this is my “baby girl” in her party dress…. love her! I didn’t realize until the party that her dress matched the party supplies, polka dots and all.
Thanks for checking in with me and helping to celebrate this princess’ first birthday. I will take closer pictures of the Cricut decor so you can see the detail. Be sure to subscribe to keep up to date with my projects and such. See you in the next post.
