Once again it has been forever since I posted (it seems like every time I post I say this). I've been busy planning my baby bears First Birthday party.
Below are pictures... if there is anything you really want to know the details of let me know and I can post a detailed tutorial, but most of it is pretty self explanatory if you look close (but if not, let me know).
I made the banners like this so It can be used every year, and for any more children we have I can just make a new name banner
The Gabba Friends banner hanging above our couch :-)
Streamers and balloons to make the room festive
Gift bags with Nick Jr Printables and little toys from the dollar store
Mac & Cheese with Hot dogs, green onion tops, and peas & carrots and Muno dip and Veggies
Muno Dip! Its just a red bell pepper cut in half with a little dip and a black pepper corn for the eye
The cake. Home made with the recipe off the back of the cocoa powder can and decorated using a coloring page and this tutorial
Smash Cake. Home made using just a little of the cake batter in the can of a sweetened condensed milk then frosted with the leftover frosting from decorating the cake.
Coloring space for after we're done eating (free printables from nickjr.com)
Birthday Present :-) home made Gabba Friends, not perfect, but ordering them from the Gabba Store was 15 bucks a pop and it cost me $20 total for the whole set :-) (not included in total price, just thought I'd show you how much you can save if you make them yourself) It took me 6 weeks, making one guy a weekend, but one guy a week is totally manageable to do during nap time.
All in all I think it was a successful party :-)
