We celebrated my youngest’s 2nd birthday this weekend. Here are a few highlights.
One of my favorite gifts to bring newbie parents in the hospital is Champagne. When our first child was born we brought a bottle with us and had the nurses put it in the fridge. After her birth we celebrated with intimate family and friends. It truly was a special way to welcome our new addition and one of my favorite memories of her birthday.
This is one of the cutest bubblies I have found to bring the parents (especially if they have a girl). It is Barefoot brand and the little foot is just too precious. They also make mini bottles which are great if you don’t want to bring glasses to the hospital so everyone can have their own “baby” bottle.
Here is the gift tag I tie on the bottle. Enjoy 🙂
So finally going through and organizing some photos when I ran across my sweet baby boy’s first birthday pics. Where does the time go? Our birth photographer had taken a photo of him in front of the clock at his birth time 7:31 AM and at 24 hrs old and now I have one with him at the exact time a year later but what happened to all those hours, minutes and seconds in between I have no idea!
Note: Never leave children alone unsupervised with balloons. Luckily my son has never been one to put things in his mouth but still I watched like a hawk as we took these photos. He thought they were balls and was more interested in throwing them than eating them but accidents can happen in a matter of seconds so please be proactive. Thanks!
We celebrated Trin’s 5th birthday this past weekend, here are the highlights from the party:
Décor and set up preformed by Pretty Little Tantrum
Tinkerbell Doll cake was made by the extremely talented Mallory Bushaw!
Fondant Tinker Bell Cake was a creation of Fantasies in Frosting
I ordered the cake topper from Dhoreen at DsCustom Toppers
The cake was a grocery store bought cake
Tutus and Toadstools were made by Pretty Little Tantrum
Activities included Coloring Pages, Painting Fairy Houses, A Scavenger Hunt, Musical Toadstools and Pin the Puff on the Fairy
New handcrafted items from Pretty Little Tantrum!
I know it’s been a while since we have had items available from our shop but we are restocked and ready to get crafty! 🙂 Our fabulous tutus are back and here is a sneak peak at some new items we will be showcasing
Monogram Hair Clip Holder: Custom holder made to match your child’s room décor.
Toadstool/mushroom stool cover. Inspired by Trinity’s upcoming Tinkerbell birthday these super cute covers will be available late September. I will be using these toadstools to play musical chairs at her party. They would also work great in a child’s play room.
So I always go gaga over amazing cakes and think I can pull them off and then about half way through realize I am in over my head! Someday I will figure out how to decorate with fondant but for now it is not in my repertoire of skills. Lucky for me I have the beautiful Miss Mallory in my arsenal of weapons:) I found this amazing Abby Cadabby cake I wanted to make for Trinity’s 4th birthday. Of course I knew I couldn’t pull it off and honestly had my doubts that anyone including Mal could but as you will see she is AMAZING!
Here is the inspiration:
The real thing~
Granted the photos were taken in our garage so the lighting is a little funny but pretty close don’t ya think? Thanks Mallory she turned out perfect! Here are some of the cake artist other masterpieces:
