A Picture Perfect Birthday

Happy Saturday and happy CHA! As you know, today marks the first day of CHA and all of the gorgeous TCD collections are making their debut at the show! I'm so excited to be able to create with these beautiful lines and today I am going to show you what I made using the new Memories Collection.

Our little girl recently celebrated her 2nd birthday ( where does the time go??) and we wanted her to have a picture perfect day. 
.

 I fell in love with the pale yellow polka dot and floral aqua paper from the new Memories collection and it just so happened that it matched perfectly with the invites for the party. The theme was " A Picture Perfect Birthday" so you can imagine my excitement when I saw the little vintage camera in the sticky note pads from the Far and Away collection.

I didn't go crazy and over the top with decorations; a party hat, goodie bags and a simple garland did the trick .Oh, and about a billion aqua polka dot and yellow balloons. I admit, I did go a little nuts with the balloons. Can't have enough balloons at a party, right??

I made the party hat out of the polka dot paper, accordion folded a strip of aqua paper and adhered it towards the bottom of the hat. I then lined the bottom of the hat with aqua tissue garland and also added a pouf of tissue to the top of the hat. Simple embellishments of the number 2 and a die cut doily were adhered to the front of the hat.   

The goodie bags were also made out of the polka dot paper and embellished with stickers and die cuts from the Memory collection.


The garland was so quick and easy to make. I simply cut several different shapes out of coordinating papers using my Cricut and glued them to a string. You could use punches as well. Pretty easy, eh?


The party was a hit and I loved making  decorations for it. Our little one even kept her party hat on most of the time...woohoo!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
