The balloon wreath I made was hung on the front door, along with a chalkboard sign below it that said "welcome".
In the entryway we had the chalkboard birthday sign I made and a Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss book as a guest book for party guests to sign.
The dessert table was definitely my favorite part of all of the decorations! (I'll share all the details of the desserts and food with you this week!) I purchased the "Happy Birthday Owen" banner on Etsy from Haute Chocolate Favors. I used this free printable to make the banner for his highchair and then mounted the letters on polka dot, striped and solid card stock.
To make the #1 Photo Collage I drew the outline of a large 1 on tag board. I used an exacto knife to cut the 1 and printed color 4x6 photos of Owen at Costco. I used double sided tape to adhere the pictures to the tag board. Easy as apple pie. I think I'll hang this above the changing table in Owen's room!
Keith made an adorable slideshow that played throughout the party on the TV in the family room. We had some cute music playing along with it and made sure to have pictures of of Owen with many of our party guests. I could have watched the slideshow ALL DAY LONG! It's just so sweet!
I used painters tape on these white wood letters I bought at Michael's and painted over with red acrylic paint t make the stripes. I also bought a "W" so it can spell Owen in his room afterward.
In the Living Room I had a 1-11month countdown of all the monthly photos I took of Owen through his first year. I found the popcorn boxes in the dollar section at Target--such a great coincidence!--to hold the photos. Each picture was mounted on red car stock and a red and white striped straw was taped to the back. I used green floral foam to hold the straw and photo upright. I made the bunting myself using card stock and twine.
It was really fun for me to make all of the decorations for Owen's party! Having said that, I think I am done party planning for a while!
Tomorrow I'll be back with Owen's 12 Month post!
Happy Monday friends!
