So Connor’s first birthday is coming up in less than 2 months so I’ve started to plan a bit. Knowing me and my OCD self I didn’t want to wait until the last minute and have a bunch of stuff to do. As I mentioned before we are doing a “Look Whooo’s One” theme. I want to do owl/woodland type decorations. This is probably one of the only years where I will get to choose the theme and be creative so I am taking advantage of it! Next year it may be cars, a Disney movie, or Elmo!
This is what I have so far:
- A blingy tablecloth cover
- I made some of those tissue paper pom poms. They are a cheap and cute way to decorate. Some of the ones I made look better than others 😛
- I am going to do a small candy buffet. I’ve always loved these, but have never done one. I don’t know where a good place is to buy candy to put in them? The colors are orange, green, blue, and brown.
I’ve also started making a birthday banner. This project has been every time consuming! I just cut the letters out freehand and they seem more playful that way. I can’t wait to show you the finished product and I hope it turns out decent!
I found these “Connor” balloons and confetti at Party City and thought that was so cute! I also found these cute birthday labels I think I am going to use for the candy jars. I’m not using the pink ones though!
I also bought the stickers above, I don’t know what for yet? I want to get Connor a birthday shirt similar to the one in the photo too. I also need a cake/cupcake stand of some sort and I just LOVE that owl candle I found on Etsy 🙂
My little booger is getting so BIG! He likes to sit in the bumbo while I am cooking dinner 🙂
He has been a MESS this week…probably because he’s been sick and I think he is cutting another tooth. He is so congested and has been coughing a lot. I just wish he could blow his own nose 😛
So – ANY PARTY IDEAS ARE WELCOME!
I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET YOU GUYS!!!
