Our next project…..

16 Mar

For awhile now I’ve wanted to get rid of our old glass Ikea table.  I keep eyeing tables at Crate & Barrel and West Elm but even at $599 (the lost price I’ve seen on one I kind of like) I still can’t convince myself to buy a new table for a rental home, especially when we will be moving in the next year or so.   My growing Pinterest addiction led me to this tutorial  for an INCREDIBLY easy table that looks really similar to the ones I like at the expensive stores!   Also, it will only cost about $90 to make, $90 people!!!!!
We’re buying the materials tomorrow and should have it up and “running” next weekend!  I cannot wait!  Pictures will follow 🙂

The Little Chickadee Turns One!

2 Feb

CandyCakes EditedSmash Cake Edited (2)Bird Cookies

My little chickadee turns one on Feb 4, we had her party on Feb 2, since her birthday fell on a Monday this year!   I decided to go with what I would call a “whimsical woodland theme”.  All of the colors were pastel and mostly pink.

LollipopsFlower Cookies

I made a bunch of stuff for the party, cookies, the cake and cupcakes, lollipops, felt birds.  I also designed all of the invitations and printables (stickers, banners etc).  I’ve posted a list of all of the recipes/tutorials I used at the end, I hope it’s helpful!

The dessert table:

Isn’t it adorable!!   I can’t believe I made most of the stuff on that table!

Really the only thing I didn’t make was the BBQ and that we got from one of our favorite places Gus’ in South Pasadena.
