First Birthday Recap Part 2

I finally get to share the best part of the party: Miss Evelyn. I am totally biased but I cannot get over how freaking cute she looked in her pink flutter dress, cat shoes and custom party hat. Girlfriend totally rocked it. A lot of her friends came in their best cat themed attire and really got into the spirit of the party. All the little girls looked so cute sitting sweetly and eating together. Definitely different than any of Henry’s birthdays or whenever toddler boys get together. Come to think of it, I don’t even think I have ever seen Henry sit down and quietly eat a meal the way the girls did. It was really so heart warming! buy strattera online no prescription







There were four crafts that I made for the party. The first was the chalkboard with the instagram hashtag. By no means am I a chalkboard artist and my three year old could do better at freehand writing than I could, so I took the route of indirect tracing. I followed this tutorial and chose my fonts, set up the wording in photoshop and printed on my everyday printer. Going back in and tracing each letter and filling them in took about two hours and I was able to accomplish it during nap time. buy abilify online no prescription


DIY project two were the felt meow banners. There isn’t a tutorial I followed for this, and I think they are pretty self explanatory. I just looked at a banner we already have and loosely went off of that. Start with cutting your triangle then trace and cut out your letters. Glue those on (I used spray adhesive which is messy as shit so don’t buy that) and then cut the 4 short strips and 1 long strip to complete the side and bam: You just made a banner. buy Cymbalta online no prescription


The goody bags were so much fun to put together. I bought the mini canvas tote bags on amazon (vendor list below) and had planned to iron on the letters. However I could not by the single letters I needed since they all came in a pack of 26 and who the hell needs 20 left over Z’s anyway. So I decided to stencil and paint them. I used the same stencil I did to cut out the MEOW felt letters above and then outlined them directly onto the bags using a fabric sharpie, followed by painting in each letter with black fabric paint. Since the bags were canvas they soaked up most of the paint as soon as I started painting, making it almost impossible to spread the paint easily. No joke, this project took longer than anything else but it saved me money and I love how they turned out.


Making the cat masks was new for me but after looking at a few pictures on Pinterest I thought I would give it a shot. I ordered a cat mask from Party City and used that as my template to trace out the mask shape. Using left over felt from the meow banners I cut out rounded triangles for the ears (I kept drawing the shapes until I liked one and used that as the template for the rest). Same goes for the glitter noses, except that is just glitter card stock, not felt. Not pictured is the elastic which hold the masks on. Using the original elastic from the party city cat mask, I measured my elastic the same length. Then I used a nail to make holes on the side so the elastic would feed in. Tie two small holes to keep it in place and voila! Super easy and you could do this for any kind of mask you wanted to make.


I hope you enjoyed all of my pink squares in your instagram feed these past 10 days! I will definitely miss that color all over the house but I’m sure my husband won’t 🙂 Be sure to check back in tomorrow to see Evie’s smash cake session and to enter a super fun giveaway for your next party!
