Last weekend was my little guy's 1st birthday party. All the effort in getting the details paid off. I really love the way it all came together. This was the center piece table for the party.
We had all the workings of circus inspired goodies - the birthday cupcakes topped with clown cupcake toppers, jelly beans, frosted animal crackers, pop corn, cracker jacks, and cotton candy! The goodie bags had whizers, Chinese yo-yos, a box of barnum circus animal crackers, and star sunglasses.
The same fabric from the goodie bags was used as a table runner to add contrast to the red table cloth for added pop!
We bought a 30 helium balloon kit from Michael's with their weekly 40% off coupon and made mini center pieces for each table.
I found this circus themed banner and birthday banner at Alin Party Supply and the these dangling things there too.
I strung monthly pictures of the little man to see how he's grown over the year.
With left over fabric from the goodie bags for a banner.
I think he and the rest of the guests had a good time : )
I'm a working mother of 2. I've always had an interest in crafting, cooking and sewing, but didn't do much about it until I had my daughter. I bought a basic sewing machine off overstock a few years ago to hem pants...and now I'm moving onto all kinds of baby, toddler and home projects! This is an online journal of my projects.
