I had originally not even planned to decorate for Mia’s party. I thought I would be too busy with Ausha only being a month old. But then the day before her birthday came and I found some extra time to scrounge up some last minute decorations. Everything was DIY made from items I already had. I gathered up every pink and yellow item in my home and threw them all together. Pink furniture, pink vases, yellow flowers, etc. If it was pink or yellow it went into the living room. I used some left over fabric from her nursery to make the pennant banner, the flower on her suspenders and to fill the picture frames on the mantel. I made the cake stand by covering a 100 pack of CDs with the polka dot fabric! Haha. If that isn’t totally DIY I don’t know what is! I used three small chalkboards on each of the 2 decorated tables and the mantel to tie them all together with Mia’s chalkboard wall in her room. The best part about the party was that I only spent money on the cake and food. It definitely ended up being cuter than I thought it would be. And, cheaper. Woohoo for cheap and pretty parties!
