Here are pictures from Scarlett's 1st birthday party! I tried to decorate for as cheap as possible.. which means a lot of DIY-ing. Hopefully you can use some of these ideas!
or buy them on my Etsy shop:
(I bought the middle bunting banner online from Oriental Trading.)
Polariod Banner Instructions:
I exported my Instagram pictures to my computer.
I then placed the pictures on a pre-made template (using Pages or Microsoft Word), and cut them out. Add some string and clothes pins...magic.
I bought two of these small banners online from Oriental Trading.
The other one was used as a cake topper. The pack was $2.49!
To make this "1" I simply drew a one on cardboard and cut it out.
I covered it with rubber cement and made a mess with glitter. Do this outside.
I used a plate stand for the "1".
To make these gold dots I used the same process as I did when making the "1".
The only difference is I hot glued them to the string.
TIP: Glue the string towards the top of the circles so they do not flip over.
I had to tape mine to the fence.
Casualties are expected.
Lost is the presents.
Cake is from Kroger ($10) and the candle is from Target ($1.99).
Cake stand was on clearance at Target for $4!
Scarlett's dress is from Target ($12) and her headband is Giddy Up & Grow.
Scarlett's eyes are from her daddy.
For the cupcake toppers I found these for FREE online (Peppa Pig).
I printed the Peppa circles, cut them out (as best I could), and hot glued them to the sucker sticks I found at Wal*Mart.
Hot glue is the new Duct Tape.
I bought all my blue tinted mason jars from Target at $10.99 for a pack out 6.
(Kroger has them around $8.99).
I purchased the paper straws in Target's party sections for around $1.99.
