Belle's First Birthday | Andie Ibanez

Belle's First Birthday

Last Thursday, my little babe turned one year old!! I was thrilled with the opportunity to throw a little birthday party for her and we felt so lucky to have so many of our friends here in North Carolina join us!! Here is a peak at what it looked like!! 

The backdrop was super cheap and one of my favorite things! I was able to purchase (rectangle) table cloths from Dollar Tree and Party City and create the fringe strips. 

I saw these little dessert shish kabobs at a recent event and thought they were brilliant!! A quick way to have tons of different treats for your guests in a clever way. On our kabob's, we had strawberries, marshmallows, brownies, rice crispies, coconut marshmallows, and eclairs!

Although you can't see these straws the best, I grabbed pink straws from target and used gold washi tape to spice them up a little at the top. 

I made the cake topper with a few extra straws, some string, and the washi tape I used with the straws. Certainly not the most fancy cake, but a fun little cake topper!

I made these little tassels with tissue paper, string and a glue-gun. These things are incredibly CHEAP!! They take an extremely small amount of tissue paper and I think they are super fun!! I followed this tutorial here.

Here's a peak at Annabelle's corner. We made a little smash cake for her and grabbed a few tassels I had left over in hopes of tying the room together.

Little Belle ended up snapping herself with her party hat (a seasoned mother would have known that was going to happen haha). So in this photo, she was confused and bawling as Isaiah and I brought her the cake.

The tears cleared up quite quickly once she realized how much she loved her cake...

Overall it was an absolute blast. I'm beyond grateful for this little family of mine.

Xoxo, Marie
