preparing for the big birthday


Gracie turns one on Wednesday. We are celebrating her birthday tomorrow with our family and a few close friends. I am trying to be as eco friendly as possible for the big day and make as much as I can as far as decorations and what not. I did find adorable packs of plastic reusable plates at Walmart for 94 cents a pack (four come in a pack). I got hot pink and spring green and my favorite part.... their divided plates (remember the weirdness about my food touching!!). I am making homemade cupcakes today and working on getting all the last details together, but I wanted to share with you all my real labor of love. Yesterday I spent several hours melting chocolate and making daisy lollipops to make the centerpieces for the table. I hope you like them!

Very cute! That is so exciting your baby girl is turning one! Mine turns one in May! I’m super excited! We are going with a lady bug theme. I am going to do the reusable cups/plates/bowls for her birthday and my son's birthday as well. He is turning 5 in April. I was thinking of buying all red because he is having a Spiderman themed party and then I could use them for both of the kid's parties, but Wal-Mart doesn't have red reusables, so I'm going to try and see if any other places have red...and the hunt begins!
