A few weeks ago we had a birthday party for our oldest who's growing up fast. I'm not one to go overboard with birthday decorations but I wanted to make it special for her. So with a little ingenuity and a few dollars I spruced up our dining room for the day.
First I needed some pretty stands to display cupcakes on the table.
A thrift store cheese dome and a Dollar tree candle stick met with a similar fate.
Around that same time I also got this vase at the thrift store. Hideous color but great shape.
A helium balloon for your birthday is a must.
It had to hang out in the car for a little bit while I got some more birthday party shopping done and the heat de-plumped it really fast. Still hanging in there, though :)
One double pack of yellow crepe streamers from the Dollar tree went a long way towards partying up the dining room.
Pink tissue paper on the table under the plastic table cloth sets the girly pink theme.
Another year under the belt!
