DIY Birthday Party

Hi Pocket Full Of Pink readers! I am SO excited to be here today on Karen's blog. She is just so sweet! My name is Katie, and I blog over at Katie{Did}It! Over at my blog I do lots of DIY projects, crafts, and some recipes. I hope to see some of you visiting some time!

So what I have for you today, is a little post about my sons One Year Old birthday party. My sweet little boy turned one this past Sunday, the 23rd. I can't believe he is already a year! It goes by fast and slow at the same time... And what a wonderful and eventful year it was! So without further ado, here are some of my photos from the party... Hope you like it!

There is my sweet little one year old during his birthday cake smash! Well, cupcake smash. I decided not to do a cake and just do cupcakes. Easier, faster, and cheaper. Plus, I got to make lots of fun and cute cupcake toppers, which you will see below!

Tehe! I had lots of fun playing around on pic monkey to make this photo of him. I just found a cute picture that I already had of him, and added a little mustache. Then I framed it and put it on the table where all the food was, for display. Easy peasy! See that cute little white treat bag with the mustache on it, over to the side? Those were super easy to do too!

I made this printable as well. Pretty easy, not much to it. The only problem was, my printer was acting up, and it cut off the polka dots that were also supposed to frame the top and bottom of the printable. Boo. But, no one else noticed, so oh well. I just love that little saying with the mustaches!

I ordered the cups and straws on Etsy. They were so fun, and a big hit! I just love striped paper straws, don't you? They just add that fun something extra...

For the "centerpiece" I blew up some balloons and put a penny in them so they would hang upside down. Then I tied them to my chandelier and added some fun ribbon to hang down with it. At the end of the ribbons I used some double sided tape and stuck on the left over cupcake toppers I had.

And there are my sweet little mustache cupcake toppers! I just love the way they turned out. And they are absolutely easy and cheap. Isn't that the best?! I will be doing a tutorial over on the blog on how I put these together, and how I did the mustache treat bags. Stop on by to check it out!

So, have you ever DIY'ed a birthday party? What theme did you go with? How did it turn out?!

Thanks for having me here today, Karen! I had a blast! I hope you all enjoyed this party and I would love to see you again over at Katie{Did}It!

I love this adorable idea!  Thanks so much for guest posting today Katie!
