No Sew Tree Skirt

 I was searching pinterest a while back and was so excited when I found a super cute no sew tree skirt!
Then while out with my mom she mentioned she wanted to get my sister one.
I told her I would make one 
half way through I regretting that. 
I wish I would have made it for MYSELF it is so incredible cute!

Here is what it looks like.
Didn't it turn out so cute???

I will be making myself one next year!

HERE is where I got the instructions!
Try is out, you'll love it!

Birthday Party Fun

I started planning Stella's birthday MONTHS ago.
I love doing fancy creative things for parties.
Sadly, I did not have the energy to do everything I wanted to do =(
But I was able to do a few of the things I wanted to.

First, I made a fun little banner:

I put balloons on a basket to make it look like a hot air balloon. I saw a picture of this forever ago and loved the idea. I think it turned out pretty cute. 
Too bad I didn't get a picture that actually turned out good!!! Boo!

I asked family to make different types of cookies and had a cookie bar! 

Finally, I made Stella's cake. It did not turn out exactly how I planned since I had never done it before but I'm happy with how it turned out.

We had so much fun celebrating her 2nd birthday with family and friends. She was spoiled rotten! I had a lot of fun planning and preparing to make the day special for her even if she didn't notice =)

Now I will start planning next year's party!!!
