birthday planning

I said that I wasn’t going to go crazy. I think I even made a promise…

But then I went on Pinterest. It’s the devil I tell you!

I still don’t think that I am going to go super-crazy, but I can’t help but get just a tiny bit excited at the idea of planning any party, let alone my babes 1st birthday party. We are just going to have a few family and friends over for a backyard BBQ. See? That’s plain and simple, right? Buuuuut then I was thinking, the whole theme of a BBQ is kind of boyish. What’s girly about hamburgers? Not much. Know what would make it girlier? WATERMELON!

I am going to try and make that same half slice cake as her smash cake, and since we looove cookies around here those watermelon slices would be perfect. And thanks to all the other parties I have planned, I already have a stash of pink, green, and white paper lanterns that will make the backyard looks bright and cheery. See Jose??? I told you I would re-use them 🙂

And of course, what would be a party for my Bug without a few of our favourite little insects.

One of the main things that I wanted to incorporate into her party is the fabric from her weekly photo project. We are almost done (only 4 more weeks to go!), so I need to start cutting this fabric up and making some cute banners to hang around the fence. I think I will print out all the photos too and display them somehow. Still gotta figure that one out.

Off to enjoy this lovely weather! And by that I mean head to the mall to get out of the heat.
