We have been so busy getting ready for Kai's first birthday party!
First here is a picture of me one year ago today, just days before Kai arrived.
I could have lived in the ocean then, it felt so nice to be in the water.
So I am trying to be a little more green with the party supplies, far from perfect but it is a start.
I have been making these paper pom poms instead of balloons. They are so fun and easy to make, addicting for some reason.
My mum ordered this sign from a nice etsy seller (hand-made from cloth and reusable!) I got a roll of that oil cloth fabric, I love it and it has an Hawaiian feel since the party is luau themed.
I wanted to get some cool melamine plates by Thomas Paul or some vintage ones. But it would be too much to get that many plates even if I got them on ebay.
But for dessert plates I got a bunch of these monkey melamine plates because they were 74 cents each
Those cups are made from corn, hopefully that is a good thing. It says they are compost able but I know that means you have to actually put them in a compost pile, which we don't have.
I have so many things that felt like I would never get done and it feels good to see most things coming together.
Here is a dresser I got for $50 from salvation army. I stripped it and restained it.
I also found this great dresser that didn't need to be fixed(except for that bottom handle) I love it
Better go I have a million things to do. I hope to get some more shark cookies baked before Kai wakes up
