Shabby Chic 1st Birthday – Ry is 1!


Shabby Chic 1st Birthday - very similar to her nursery

Design Inspiration

I decided to use a lot of items from her nursery as inspiration for the party decor

Project Details

Cake: a friend made

Fence for hanging pictures: old fence from my neighbor & spray painted it myself

Labels for food & drinks: Martha Stewart coasters from Joann's Fabric store - punched holes in them w/ a 3 hole punch & tied them with tulle. I bought Avery circle jar labels at Wal-Mart & printed the writing on each of them according to the instructions in the package.

Sign for treat bags: frame found at Goodwill & re-spray painted pink

Cookies: a friend from college -

Mustache mold: Hobby Lobby

Happy Birthday hat & "I'm One" panties: Mud Pie on Amazon

Birthday stats sign: a friend made

Cake Bunting: made myself with fabric bits from Joanne Fabric

I Am One highchair sign: made myself with strips of fabric & the same Martha Stewart Coasters & Avery jar labels

Any questions, please feel free to ask!!

Use existing décor you have around your house or in bedrooms...jazz them up with a bit of paint or use as is.  No need to go out & buy cheesy birthday décor.  ;)
