Delicious Decorations

Monday, February 23, 2009
What's a party without decorations? Anyone who has ever been to one of my parties knows that I love party decorations. They add a playfully fun dimension to a party. They are second to the guests of honor, you can't have a party without them. A few years ago, I created this banner for one of Emma's parties. Now I use it for both Emma and Harper.

To create it, I scanned images from a birthday themed tablecloth that a friend who works in the textiles industry had given me. I used Photoshop to place text on top of each image to spell Happy Birthday Emma and Harper. Once I printed all of the letters, I glued them onto construction paper. I display it proudly for each girl's birthday.

You can imagine how excited I was when I recently found Emmie Cakes, a collection of fun birthday and holiday banners. They are way too cute and are completely handmade. I fell in love with each and every one of them. I can't decide which one to order for Emma's upcoming birthday in May. Here are some samples of what is available.

I will have to check this out, I love birthday banners but truthfully, I don't know if I'm going to get around the making the pendant style one I say. Love the idea of a tradition of bringing out the same special one for birthdays.
