We are getting ready to celebrate an important milestone, our baby girl is turning one in June! It’s going to be a small celebration at home with family and a few friends. I’d like to make a few special items to decorate for the important milestone.
I found this lovely party invite at Tiny Prints. I LOVE the pennant banner across the top, with the bright pinks, purple & teal blue colors. I decided these would be the colors and I could use this look/theme to set everything else for the party. The other thing I enjoy about the invite is getting to use 4 photos on the front of our baby girl. These were taken when she was 7 months old and now’s a great time to share them with our friends and family. I even have two more on the backside, I love doing double sided cards!
This time I am going to make a fabric banner/bunting to hang up at the party. I found this lovely Robert Kaufman fabric bundle at the Fat Quarter shop.
The colors are perfect: teal blue, purple, pinks. With cute birds, butterflies & flowers patterns. This weekend I am going to make the bunting and I am excited to see how it turns out. Updated: here’s a link to the finished bunting banner.
The other thing I am making is a first year mini album that shows a photo that I’ve taken of baby Gwen in the same chair each month. Updated: here’s a link to the completed mini album.
I found a lovely paper collection called Sketchbook (by Amy Tangerine) that has beautiful colors for a summer party (teal blue, bright pinks, yellow and greens). It will be the perfect backdrop for the mini album that I’d like to display at the party. I also picked up the coordinating embellishment items in the collection (ribbons, embellishments and some brads) to help decorate the three ring mini book.
There are a few other things I might create for the party but these are the two main things I’ve got to complete. I can’t wait to get going with these two projects!
