In a previous post I revealed a photo of the teddy bear cake I somehow created by the skin of my teeth,
but I have yet to show you a few details from the birthday party we had at home. The actual celebration was on Shabbos, so I don't have too many images on film, but here are a few cute ones I took afterwards.
This paper was hand-stamped with 3 stamps and red and blue ink. I really loved the result but didn't know what to do with it. Then at the last minute I thought how about birthday hats? A good idea, only I had just one piece of paper, how would that work? Then it occured to me to make hats for the cute stuffed animals that I used as decoration for the table and as a suprise gift.
I tied pink bows around their necks and put them sitting inside a bread basket. I always like to invite animal friends to birthday parties. It's a sure fire way to put a smile on everyone's face.
And not to forget the chandelier, which is decorated for every birthday! This time I was in a huge rush, and had time for one ribbon color, one width, but the result was still festive. Just don't mention to my son that pink isn't for boys since we don't hold by that around here (except for clothing of course!)
Note: Ribbon comes in so many widths and colors and is relatively inexpensive. It is great for creating instant decorations — tie bows on chairs, or even "wrap" the table in ribbon, use your imagination and the results will be so greatly appreciated.
