And the Party Planning Continues...

I am almost finished with Connor's first birthday banner.  It's taken a lot of cutting, blood, sweat, and yeah.....cutting and glue.  It was a little harder than I thought.  I need to add a few more owls on the end and things like that, but it came along nicely.  I free handed the letters because I didn't like the big block letters.  It turned out okay, it looks more child like this way I guess.
I've got a lot of the tableware and things from Wal-Mart and Target.  Most of it was around $1.00 - $2.50 a package.  That green plastic bowl was only $1.00 at Wal-Mart and I'm sure I'll find something to put in there!
Here is a close up of the "1" on the sign.  Should I add more little owls or big owls??? What do ya'll think?
I picked up these shiny orange platters for 50% off at Hallmark.  They were $3.00 a piece!  I
 can use them to serve some things on too.
Dude kept getting into my peppermint chocolate sticks while I was working on the banner. 
He is into EVERYTHING right now!
#1 eligible bachelor ladies....watch out!!!
These are actually stickers I got at Michael's and I think I am going to print something on them and use them as cupcake toppers.
Awesome green cupcake liners from Tuesday Morning
Don't you love this owl candle??? It's ADORABLE...I'll stick it somewhere around here!
This is the HUGE mess I've made in the extra bedroom right now.  I have to get this cleaned up because we have company staying with us this weekend and I have been throwing all things PARTY up in here.  Terence just walks in and turns around...ha...ha...

Every time I bring something else home he just sighs...this is my "thing" right now and it's something I look forward to doing and crafting.  What will I do after all this mess is over with???

I'm sure I'll have more crafty business to share with you all soon!

Your decorations look great -- can't wait to see it all together! The banner looks really good {and time consuming}!

I also really like your header -- did you design/create it yourself? The tree is so cute with the hearts :0)

I love the owl theme. My sister is a Chi-O, so owls always catch my attention. The little owls with the googley eyes are precious!
