Here we go again! I'm planning another party which means I need more decoration ideas which leads to more pins to my pin board and of course, more DIY attempts by your's truly. This time I wrapped a cardboard number 1 in yarn. Easy right? We'll see about that!
I'm at it again folks! Trying my best to recreate pins I find on Pinterest and sharing the results. Recently we baptized our second daughter and since baptisms occur so early in the day (and on Sundays) it isn't really feasible to get flowers for the centerpieces, shops aren't open that early (or at all) for delivery in the morning and while we could have gotten them the day prior, I was afraid they may have started to droop and wilt overnight. So I started searching on Pinterest for non-floral centerpiece ideas that seemed easy enough to make on my own.
WARNING. This post may cause you to binge watch yet another show on Netflix. Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Admittedly I had never heard of Marie Kondo until I stumbled upon a tweet mentioning her new show. What happened next will shock and amaze you, maybe. Probably not. But read on anyway.
We have a first birthday coming up and I've been party prepping for what feels like, forever. The invitations have been sent out and I'm waiting for the RSVPs to start rolling in. Currently we are at an extremely slow trickle, I hope the pace picks up soon. While waiting for the RSVPs I've been securing my decorations; purchasing what I can online and browsing through Pinterest for anything I might be able to make. One thing I've seen over and over again is the "highchair tutu" that is used for photo ops during the typical 1st birthday party for a little girl.
If you're like me when it comes time to wrap birthday presents or Christmas/holiday presents you go out and buy fresh rolls of wrapping paper and bags only to find out that you had a whole stash from the previous year hidden away somewhere. Well I had enough and decided I need to get organized and give myself a proper wrapping station. The hubby didn't see the need but now that we have our daughter, I'm going to need a space that I can go to and wrap gifts in peace and hopefully store them away from spying eyes as she gets older.
Our little one's first birthday is quickly approaching and I've started tackling some DIY projects for decorations. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again, I would much rather pay someone to do these types of things for me since I was not really blessed with the "crafty gene" but since becoming a mom I've realized it is best to spend our money on more important things than decorations. So I searched on Pinterest (of course) for ideas, EASY ideas. I stumbled upon these huge number 1 decorations and I decided this might just be the project for me.
