I just realized I haven’t made a post in almost a month. I wanted to make a post with pictures from Lainey’s 1st Birthday but never got around to it. I have all her pictures now all together and thought I should share with you her 1st birthday fun!
The theme was the colors Pink, Yellow and Blue. I guess it’s not really a theme but a color scheme 🙂
I have to admit her birthday was mostly inspired by Pinterest. I called it a Pinspiring Birthday Party!
I made this tutu from a tutorial I found on Pinterest. The moment I saw it I thought it would be perfect for her party outfit. When I first made the tutu for her and had her try it on, she screamed! She absolutely hated it. I tried again a month later and she still hated. But for the big day she had sooo much fun in it. I have to say though heads up for anyone making one, do NOT use sparkly tulle. It falls off and gets everywhere!
Here is her cake! Homemade by mama! I got the idea from another little girls birthday that I saw on Pinterest (surprise eh?)
Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!
Okay, so Lainey’s 1st Birthday isn’t until September, but it’s my first child and I love to plan things so why not start now! Here are a few ideas I have….
My inspiration for the theme I got from here: http://blog.hwtm.com/2012/06/chevron-polka-dot-first-birthday-party-ideas/
I just love the colours!
So for the cake I really like the chevron cake with polka dots. However, since I don’t want to go way over board and do a 3-tier cake, I think 2-tier would be perfect with a foam tier for the top. Otherwise I think I might have a lot of left overs.
For the bottom tier, I was thinking Pink, with White chevron stripes.
The top tier would be White, with a Yellow quatrefoil and the letter would be Blue.
Then I chose to maybe put a Blue peony flower like I made for Crystal’s
Then I found out online how to make ruffled streamers!
How cute are these. http://www.danamadeit.com/2011/05/tutorial-ruffled-streamers.html I think I’ll do two coloured ones. Maybe Pink/Blue, and a Blue/Yellow.
Here are some other ideas I had:
Then what would a 1st Birthday for a girl with out a tutu! I’m planning to make her a Blue and Pink fluffy tutu.
I made this cake back in August (12) for my sister’s wedding.
Since I had been making cakes here and there for birthday’s I wanted to attempt something a bit bigger.
And with her permission I made her a wedding cake. I took two cake decorating classes at Michaels and then went online to learn the rest.
So this is what she wanted it to look like …
So this was my first practice flower
… and VOILA! the final product
We didn’t want to cover the cupcakes in flowers so instead I just put one little gumpaste rose on each or a small gumpaste flower.
