Addison's Party

Finally some (not so good) photos of Addison's 1st birthday party.
Due to her birthday falling in the midst of all the moving chaos I tried to stick to cost effective, fast and easy decorations. A lot of paper doilies, Martha pom poms, and items made from my existing craft collection.
It was held at our local park and we even had a visit from a random "cowboy" passing by offering pony rides for the children!

You gotta love a tutu! This was made with binding on the edges and a shirred waistband.

Fabulously cheap and effective decorations.

Made with blue paper bags, paper doilies (for the girls) and white thank you's on pink card.

Fabric corsage made from the V & Co tutorial.
See that patchwork rug Addison is sitting on? I started that 2 years ago and still have not finished it- all it needs is the binding!!!

The party was held at the local park by the lake and wild (but very tame) geese are constantly wandering around waiting to be fed which the kids of course loved!

Little girls + bubbles = too cute
A battery powered bubble machine makes for easy entertaining!

Don't look too close at the icing- no piping bag, warm weather and a bumpy car ride didn't leave it in the best shape...

Very bad photo taken at home. I made this from squares of scrap booking paper (great use of my large collection that I buy and never seem to use!) in various shades of pink patterns, paper doilies separating the words and threaded with thick jute twine.

Another terrible photo taken at home- they looked a lot cuter in real life. Made form paper doilies, A photo of Addison on one side and a number 1 on the reverse with a straw taped inside. I had these standing in sand filled milo tins that were covered in brown paper with a wide pink bow wrapped around them.
