baby girl birthday party

fat quarter bundle (6)

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!
