Getting ready for the big ONE!!

My baby's 1st Birthday is just a few days away. I can hardly believe it!! I have made a few things for his party, and am still working on a few more. There is never enough naps in the day to get it all done. I got the idea for this crown from Jill. She made a similar one for her little one for his b-day. Check out her blog for a tutorial :-) His hat does not match the rest of the decor because I just used the supplies I had on hand. I figured for the 10 seconds that he actually keeps it on his head it is not really going to matter.
I appliqued a long sleeve t-shirt with a 1 on it for him to wear to the party on Sunday. The fabric I used is All Stars by Riley Blake. I just love this fabric! So CUTE!
Birthday banner. I used this AWESOME tutorial which actually includes a printable pattern!! I LOVE how it turned out! I am also working on a quilted table runner for the table. I ran out of thread when I was about 90% finished... SO FRUSTRATING!!! I guess I will be making a Hobby Lobby run tomorrow :-)


  1. Cute appliques! My baby is one today. I can't believe how fast this year went. Love your blog... I signed up to follow!

  2. Liam is a very lucky boy! I especially love the birthday banner, what a neat idea.

  3. I love the colors and the fabrics you chose for the banner. Looks like everything is in place for a very special day.

  4. I love the crown. It's adorable and a great idea.
    He's going to have the best birthday ever.
