Want a sneak peek at the birthday bash for the little girls this weekend?
Since we're in the dead middle of winter, I went with a snowflake and heart theme.
The party guest list is simple and includes some family, Godparents and a couple of priests. We usually keep our parties simple, but add just a couple more guests for the First Birthday.
I contemplated how to kindly tell people not to bring gifts because we have enough toys and the girls for the most part have enough clothing. And then in the middle of the night, I got an idea. I mentioned it to hubby and the more he thought about it, even he said it was perfect.
Check out the bottom of the invitation.
For The Eats:
We are doing just munchies snacks and then cake and ice cream since the party is in the early afternoon. I'm planning on having these paper cones I made for the guests to put their snacks in. I thought they were cute and a little more fun than a bowl.
(I used some of these printable paper cones that worked with our color theme and also bought scrapbooking paper at JoAnn's for the rest)
We made some Popsicle stick snowflakes last weekend for winter decorations. I thought these would work well for the party decor as well.
Paint the sticks white.
Use a hot glue gun to glue together.
Decorate with different colored buttons.
(I know, not the greatest photo but the only one I have downloaded right now)
We hung them up in front of some windows and the patio door.
In addition to the snowflakes that are adorning some of the windows, we'll also hang tissue paper pom-poms to set the mood.
Again, thanks to Pinterest.
More details to come later.
Of course, you're all invited and I'd love it if you could come on over to help us celebrate.
If not, you know I'll at least post plenty (probably enough to make you tired of seeing pink and red) of photos next week.
