I had my little girl's 1st birthday party last weekend and the theme was CUPCAKES!!! I had so much fun finding and making decorations for her party! BEWARE there are a lot of photos coming up!
Here is a picture of the party table!
I made this cupcake birthday banner with the cricut expression! I used the celebrations cartridge, paper, string, and ribbon! It turned out so cute!
I also made a cupcake banner to go around her high chair. It said, "I am 1".
I talked my sister into making her cake. It was a giant cupcake. I borrowed the cake pan from a friend, but I did see them at Wal Mart for $18. The cute little cake stand that it is sitting on was $7 at TJ Max. Also the table cloth underneath it was fabric that I picked up and hemmed around the edges from Joann's(actually my craftaholic partner in crime hemmed it for me do to the lack of time I had left).
This cupcake stand was inspired by imperfectly beautiful.Go here to see how cute their monogrammed cupcake stand turned out! Oh how I ♥ ric rac, stripes, and polka dots! Oh and the adorable cupcake on top was another steel from TJ Maxx for $6.
Don't look at my actual cupcakes! I was running out of time and they didn't get decorate how I wanted, but this picture is to show that I made my own cupcake picks with the cricut.
I thought it would be cute to have some glass containers full of candy! I also thought that you can't go wrong with colored marshmellows! After the kids received their goody bags, then I filled them up with candy and marshmellows to take home!
Another find from TJ Maxx was this cupcake candle! It actually had sprinkles inside the wax and smelt like yummy cupcakes!
While looking for ideas on line for decorations I came across some cute crochet cupcakes. I knew that there way I could make them, so I called up my SIL Ang and asked if she could make some. She was able to find a pattern and make these cute little cupcakes! Also the little picture holders have cupcakes all around the bottom. You can't see them, but I found them at Joann's.
This was the pillowcase dress that I made for her to wear. Sorry this is the best picture I could find of it. Taking pictures of a one year old isn't always the easiest thing to do. I also asked another friend to make her corker bows to match the dress. My little girl was such a cute "CUPCAKE"!
A party wouldn't be compete without a goody bag! The goody bag included cupcake pencils, sunglasses, candy necklaces, and plastic cupcakes filled with candy (Wal Mart in the easter section). The tag on the goody bags was made from the cricut and said, "Thanks for making Jaylee's party so SWEET!".
I made these cupcakes out of baby wash clothes! I didn't have time to make a wrapper for them, so I used the base from the left over goody bags. I took the cupcake base and put the wash clothes in them, tied ribbon around them and added a cherry on top! Click here to see the instructions!
Something that I forgot to take a picture of was a cupcake material valance that I made to go above my kitchen window! I had a little left over from the dress, so I took it and made a curtain. I had so much fun planning and making this cupcake themed party! Thanks for checking it out!
