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!!!



  1. @ these ages the mom's have more fun than the kids for the most part. I always get caught up in the fun details too. it's a party for mom! :)

  2. Adorable! I would love to know how you make the frosting flowers on the cake. Too cute!
