Welcome to Ellie’s second birthday recap!
DAY FIVE: décor
Every party needs a theme!
Since the library at Blessed Trinity is so beautiful we didn’t need any décor. I was planning on using the bunting from last year’s birthday but just couldn’t find the right place to hang it. Instead I decorated (temporarily) an E to hold the balloons the directed guests to the entrance of the party.
I bought this “E” a year ago at Home Goods. I haven’t sat down and really made a decision on how I want to decorate it for Ellie’s room. For the party I just temporarily decorated it this way.
I traced pink paper and adhered it to the E. Since it is taller than 12 inches I needed two sheets of paper. Where the paper overlaps I wrapped a ribbon. The very special ribbon that was the inspiration colors for Ellie’s bedroom. You may recognize it as the ribbon that Baby Gap uses to wrap their gifts.
Here is the finished product.
