Heart Birthday Party

It has been a whirlwind of birthday parties, celebrations and cake at our house lately. As I mentioned before, my two oldest kids birthdays are 7 days apart. So I go from very little baking for 6 months to non stop baking for two weeks. And I am happy to report we finished the last of the cake today so their is no more for me to eat. I sure do like cake and now it is time to get in the gym and work off all the dessert. It has been so fun to celebrate the kids these past few weeks but I have missed blogging so I am happy to work on some home projects next.

My daughter had her friend birthday party this past weekend and I was really worried how it was going to go with 7 seven year olds, but I was pleasantly surprised, the girls did really well. It was my daughters first friend party, my kids get a friend party every other year and it was her turn. She was so excited and had so much fun.

Emily wanted a heart birthday party with red, white and pink, so that is what she got.

I made a banner on my silhouette I got for Christmas. I finally figured out how to use it. I just needed a good excuse to practice.

I put tassels on the mantle. Which were easy but a little time consuming to make, but I love how they turned out. I am not ready to take them down.

For the table I used some burlap and laid ribbon over top for some color. I bought some valentines M&M's and saved them for her party. They had to be hidden well.

I got some cute straws from the dollar section at Target a while back and I added a heart to each straw and some washi tape to a clear plastic cup. Such simple things to dress up a plastic cup.

And of course a heart cake. I made the heart using one round and one square pan. I cut the circle in half and added it to sides. It worked perfect, got the idea from Pinterest of course.

For a little craft for the girls, I had supplies for each to make a necklace. I cut out little hearts and cut up paper straws and had them thread them onto bakers twine. They turned out really cute and all the girls did something a little different.

I was really excited to partner with Tiny Prints for this party. They had so many choices for thank you cards and gift tags to personalized Emily's treat bags for her friends.

The treat bags were super easy, I just took some lunch bags and cute the top off with pinking shears. I used a hole punch on the top and tied them shut with bakers twine. I stamped each girls name on a bag.

My daughter picked out the thank you notes, and was so excited to get something special that matched her party. We also got return address labels that matched, I LOVE it!

I can't believe how big my kids are getting it is a good reminder to not rush things. It goes so fast all on its own.

As always have a wonderful day!
