First Birthday

My little one is turning ONE on Wednesday! =) I can't believe it! Time has gone by so quickly. I did a monster theme for his party yesterday. Thank you Pinterest for inspiring me!

Tissue Poms with Monster eyes and teeth. I followed this video on YouTube

Fun chevron and green paper/ribbon banner with my baby's name. =) I used the Creative Memories circle cutter. That link will take you to the page with all the custom shape cutting tools.

Monster Marshmallow Pops with icing and dyed coconut hair. I used food markers to do the faces. My friend and I dyed the coconut with food coloring in zipper bags. SO easy.

The blocks are foam floral arranging blocks from Hobby Lobby and my cousin helped by covering them with wrapping paper, also from Hobby Lobby.

I made his smash cake and did the mouth/teeth with a homemade cardstock stencil and cocoa/powdered sugar. His eyes are a jumbo marshmallow cut in half

I made the monster favors with fleece and felt and my mom helped me stitch them together to save time. =)

All of the monster clip art I used for the labels was purchased on Etsy at Peach Pops Clipart.

Monster cupcakes: Strawberry cake, cream cheese icing, dyed coconut hair, marshmallow eyes and pretzel horns! =) They were a big hit!

Coming Soon: A Bridal Shop

I made a decorative wedding sash for a dear friend of mine. She is very trusting of me to ask me to make something I've never made before... and it turned out great!
 I'm seriously considering opening a bridal shop on Etsy. Thoughts?
