Everything was handmade and centered around the color pink the ruffles of a tutu.

Favorite Items

The ruffled smash cake! It was the perfect center piece, a ombre' of pink and delicious sweetness for the eyes and palette.


Pick a theme and run with it! Almost everything you see here was completely handmade using tissue paper and other affordable craft supplies. Stick with a common color scheme and theme and think outside of the box when it comes to styling.

    The letter A was made by purchasing a cardboard letter from Michaels or JoAnn Fabrics. I then cut up tons of small squares of tissue paper (about one inch squares). The next step is to use the eraser of a pencil, place the eraser into the center of the square and twist the paper in a circular motion around the eraser until you’ve made a little ‘cup’ of paper. Last, you dip the paper ‘base’ (with the eraser still in it) into a bit of glue – I used Tacky Glue, then apply it to the surface of the letter. Once you get the hang of it, it goes fairly quickly but it is a bit of a process. The large A took me about an hour and 1/2 to complete. They now hang in my nieces room. Happy crafting!

    You can YouTube a lot of the stuff.. like the tissue flowers and diy birthday decorations. U can also probably Google how to make and decorate the cake like that or similar as well. I’m in the process of watching lots of videos for my daughter’s birthday
