We brought bunting back….

We brought bunting back….you know the cute garage sale style pennants.

Every party needs a theme. In fact, every fundraiser, garage sale, bedroom, wedding needs a theme. Ellie’s first birthday theme was “bunting.” Yep – you read that right. Bunting is all the rage now…but do you know who brought it back. That would be Ellie and me! The photo above was my inspriation piece.

I started by picking out fabric and making the actual bunting. It still makes me smile when I look at it. I made my own pattern. I don’t know how to read/follow sewing patterns.

I apologize…these photos were taking with my iphone last year.

The bunting was also the inspiration for the invite. And of course there had to be an “e” included too.

Ellie’s party was supposed to be outside at the park but of course May in Minnesota can also mean 40 degrees and sleet. Oh well….

Ellie’s little friends needed party favors (of course)…here they are….

I am not a big fan of desserts unless they fit the theme perfectly….these fit the theme….

And here is the happy birthday girl…I can’t believe how fast the first year went by and the second year was definitely warp speed.
