I think I kinda went overboard on this one and if I keep trying to outdo my last party I'm in trouble! Eventually I'm going to either run out of time or out of sanity... not sure which one will come first.
Starting off, we have the front door...
Then in the entryway (in case you weren't sure why you were here...)
Moving on a little bit we have the "Shrine of Jillie"
On the mantle we have her month by month banner (using the paper accordion fan thingys as a background that I can not possibly recall where I saw instead of the circle that I used for Charlotte's 1st birthday month by month banner)
and NOW onto the CUPCAKE (and dessert) TABLE!
|Click to enlarge (and I am really proud of this so go ahead and click!)|
PS - I made the table cloth too... and love the doilies scattered around
|Sugar cookies AND... my first time rolling out cookie dough and using cookie cutters. As you can see I only |
have 4 "shapes".... I got bored with rolling out the dough and did the rest in flattened balls of dough. Sue me.
|Vanilla cupcakes, Grandma's wedding icing, edges rolled in sprinkles.|
|Chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes from My Baking Addiction with Grandma's|
Wedding icing and cupcake tags made by me in photoshop
|Orange cupcakes with orange and white swirled Grandma wedding icing... |
with same cupcake tags made in photoshop
|These were the favor boxes so each guest could bring home a cupcake. These are actually leftover from my wedding... |
I just made a tag (in photoshop) large enough to cover the "Eric & Stevie" that were printed on them 5 years ago.
|and LASTLY I tried my hand at marshmallow pops (seen EVERYWHERE, but designed to match these) held up by skittles. Not gonna lie... the skittles didn't work at all. Maybe I didn't have enough. These were actually the biggest hit with the kiddos.|
And NOW for the party...
Saturday was the party. Then on Sunday, Jillie got baptized. It was a HUGE weekend...
Time to get ready for Thursdays playdate birthday party... I. Am. Exhausted!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you liked it :)
