Polka Dot Party!

We had a fabulous pink and yellow polka dot party to celebrate Isabelle’s birthday. I had SO much fun planning and creating and sewing for this thing, it was so great to have a project. I know it’s cliche but seriously, I can’t believe she has been part of our family for one whole year.

Pre-party all ready to go- I made her skirt then put it over a little tutu for extra fluff, and appliqued the fabric on her shirt.
Dessert table- lots of tasty treats
I made most of the food and the cake, I had a lot of fun making the cupcake toppers to match the invitations. I also sewed the pennant banner from polka dot fabric and double sided bias tape.

The poms are made from fabric, felt, and Styrofoam balls from the dollar store.

Pink and yellow cotton candy helped brighten the table.
Her party hat was made from an old wrapping paper roll, felt, and the same polka dot fabric. (Are you noticing a theme here?) I love felt. Felt is great for everything.

Her one year photo banner

agh I just want to eat her up.
Madilyn got the memo on the party color scheme…
We opened lots of presents together.
 Cake time!

 She was surprisingly dainty- she barely got her little fingers dirty.  I thought she would totally go crazy and stick her face in it. I guess she hasn’t learned the term “carbs” quite yet.

We had SUCH a fun party, Isabelle loved having people over, she just crawled and walked (*gasp*) around our family room from person to person. I felt so nostalgic and happy on her birthday, so thankful for her little life and her smiley personality. 

PS: I would love to share how I made/sewed anything! Let me know if you have a question.
