Happy Happy Valentine's Day, sweet friends!
I hope you have a sweet, love-filled day. I'm so grateful for all of you!
I wanted to share some photos from Sadie's Birthday party yesterday. It was the first time I've been able to give either of my girls a real birthday party, and it was a blast!!
First the decor (which coincidentally is the scrappy part of my scrappy sunday post :0)
ribbon: martha stewart
foam doilies: oriental trading
medallions on white banner: making memories
roses on pink/red banner: hobby lobby.
super simple. lots of banners i saw online require sewing (which i don't know how to do and didn't have time to learn before the party), so I just strung them on ribbon. This Martha ribbon looks like old fashioned seam binding ribbon, i love it. I adhered the felt roses with big (multiple) glue dots.
ribbon: martha stewart
pink doilies: oriental trading
felt mini red hearts: hobby lobby
white doilies: baking section of grocery story
red doilies: dollar spot at the PX (our on post walmart-type store)
The white garland looks a tad sketchy (ha!) but this is the no-sew option. i took the white circle doilies, folded them in half, and wove the gold ribbon through the top. then i adhered the circle into a half circle by using glue dots.
so that's the scrappy (ish???) part of the post. here's some more pictures:
Cupcakes. Aren't they GORGEOUS?? They tasted just as wonderful as they looked. I found a photo online and worked with the pastry chef at Lewis Jones Food Market. She did a fantastic job, I was thrilled with them.
the birthday girl's HUGE cupcake had a "tutu" on it. I found this sweet tulle fringed ribbon at Michael's, it's total tutu ribbon!
i put layouts of sadie in the display piece on the back wall. it's a great way to show her growth AND an easy decor idea!
the cups for the pink lemonade:
i arranged the candy in cookie cutters from the dollar section of the PX.
valentine's bingo (with red hots as markers), and cookies for the winners:
and the sweet birthday girl!!!

Tutu and hairclip by Tiara's Tutus
She was SO SOOSOSOSOSOSO excited. When she woke up from nap and I told her it was party time, here's the face she made:
who could NOT stay away from the candy:
and when it was time to sing, someone got verrrrrry shy.
or maybe just a daddy's girl:
so there you have it. i think i need to have a valentine's themed party every single year.
it was too fun.
tutu fun. snort.
love you all, have a beautiful, happy, love day!
