Emma's 1st Birthday Party

My big girl turned 1!  I can't believe how fast this past year went.  Emma is growing up :o)  We had my family over for her birthday, a small gathering as not to overwhelm her.  We had a hot air balloon theme as I mentioned in a previous post, with bright, cheerful colored decorations.

For the garlands strung from the chandelier and across the wall I sewed paper circles together I cut out with a 2 inch circle punch.  I found the striped tablecloth at Ikea, and the striped party hats at Target along with the plates and napkins.  I deconstructed one of the party hats and glued pink polka-dot fabric to the hat and added some green fringe for a special hat for Emma.

I also made a small smash cake for Emma with a tiny banner hung between chopsticks with her name. 

She didn't do so much smashing of the cake, but a rather confused what is this sticky stuff on my hands?!

We did a little present opening:

And then some pictures in the backyard with balloons:

Happy Birthday Emma!!!

The balloons look wonderful. Every decoration looks incomplete without them. I also like them and love to use them as a part of decoration.
