My tiniest baby turned 1!

Obviously, I did a lot of pink along with a touch of a flamingo theme.  Pink solo cups for our keg of beer in a pink bucket!  Pink flamingo’s in the yard as well as a giant flamingo balloon attached to Emory’s highchair.  My aunt brought over pink dahlia’s from her garden for a few arrangements and we coated as much as we could in pink party table cloths from Target and Party City.  I made a round tiny white cake, so the cake mess would be white instead of brown chocolate, and coated it in pink sprinkles.

I also cut the letters of her name out of card board, painted them in glue and covered them in white glitter as you can see below.  So easy and fun!

Emory’s head band was purchased from a cute Etsy shop called “BagsnBerries.”

For Valentines Day, I traced my 3 year old son’s hands, which took about an hour to get him to hold still, and sent off to family members.  I positioned his hands so that there was a heart in the middle and had him embellish them with heart stickers.  My son loved putting stickers on and ‘helping!’  Happy late Vday y’all!

 

My 2nd project was making tissue paper tassel garland.  They are super simple to make and look really cute under my daughters mermaid wall sticker above her crib!  She needed some white on that dark gray wall.

Here is a great tutorial on how to make them from HGTV:  http://www.hgtv.com/design/make-and-celebrate/entertaining/make-your-own-tissue-paper-tassel-garland

I have decided that I want to get good at wreath making!

Here is my Christmas wreath for our front door.

My mom picked me up a blank foam wreath from Michaels, as you can see in the first couple pictures above.  Then I just picked up several tubes of balls in different sizes from the Target $1 section and then hot glued the balls to the wreath.  I took off the tops of the balls where the hook attaches, put glue on the top of the ball tits and shuved them into the foam wreath.  Works like a charm!  Hubs got me a bling bling wreath hook for the door too!

I LOVE Christmas!
