This year Elle's Birthday had to be simple. With a pregnant mommy at Christmas, I had to make it cute but EASY!
We did a joint party with her little friend who turns 2 a week before Elle. The invitations were really simple. I used the scallop edger by "stamp it up" and the flower punch by them too. I usually dont buy from them, but I could not find these anywhere else!
We did an openhouse with 6-7 families. We served pink punch (raspberry sherbet and sprite) cake and peppermint icecream, pink frosted doughnuts and cupcakes. Sugar high!
These tissue balls are super easy to make (though I have never made one! I borrowed these from a friend who had just had a party!) You accordian fold tissue paper together, cut the edge in either a point or a scallop, wrap wire around the middle, and then pull it all apart!
I used the "great cupcake" pan by WS.
Ordered strawberry frosted doughnuts from Shipleys, and then made a bunch more cupcakes for the little ones.
I did 2 cakes for the 2 little girls...then they could both blow out candles!
This was an easy way to do a little birthday banner. I just used my punch and stuck the letters on old fashioned candy sticks...and stuck those in pebbles in buckets.
