Our front door and the painted tile and hat I made. I'm thinking of using it every year and just changing out the number, perhaps.
The goodie-bags for all of Harbor's little friends, right inside of our foyer. I loved the big stickers that personalized them with his name. I found a really neat webiste that sold them really cheap- the stationary studio. com
Our living room- I made a felt banner out of felt squares and used iron-on heat-and bond to attach the lettering. It made for a fun backdrop when he opened his presents. I found some I like on Etsy, but didn't want to pay for one, so I made it. It was my first one to make, but I learned a few tricks as I went. : )
Other random decorations included lots of helium balloons, tulle wrapped chairs, and more balloons. The kids loved the balloons!
The cake table in our dining room was lots of fun for me to create! I made his cupcake stand by hand and used some of the personalized stickers to create cupcake picks. I decorated our chandelier with tulle, ribbon, and a #1- my baby is one! My goodness! I also made a massive birthday hat. Ha! Since I can't do hair bows, obviously, I swore I would do a ginormous party hat.
We kept it simple with cupcakes and red koolaid. I didn't want to be overwhelmed with food and miss any "aha" moments with Harbor. The day went smoothly and I am so pleased with how it unfolded- simple and easy!
