Quinn's First Birthday Party


This party was completely inspired by a really cool blog - Blonde Designs. They do some great things that are worth copying. In fact, I couldn't do parties if I didn't have inspiration like blogs and my sisters (Twin 1 and Twin 2) - who always know how to through a party. My sister, Egan, designed her birthday invitations that were also inspired by Blonde Design.

Check this out - I totally copied them. But really - why be creative when someone else is so brilliant?

Here it is - Quinn's Party - I Scream for Ice Cream. (she really loves ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sno cones)

The gift bag toppers were also from Blonde Design.

Regular chocolate cake mix with Billy's Bakery Vanilla Buttercream Frosting - SO GOOD!


I am often inspired by another blog, Stephmodo. She had these cute pom poms as decorations for a shower. So I copied using Martha's directions and hung them for this party. I love them.
The damage.

The birthday present was a hit! I think it might actually be Gavin's favorite gift ever. (no surprise from a kid who has wanted a vacuum and wheelbarrow for gifts)
