Mary Grace will be turning one in a little over a week. We always have a big first birthday party, but with finances so tight, I was beginning to rethink that idea.
Thank goodness for Pinterest!
After a visit to the thrift store, I was able to make two cake stands for a little less than eight dollars.
I found these two sweet plates for a steal at .75 each. They are nice, big, sturdy, and best of all vintage. I used a candle holder for the base of one and a candy dish for the base of the other. I glued them together using E-6000 epoxy.
After the glue dried, I spray painted them upside down with a matching yellow.
I also came across some additional fabric at the thrift store and made yards and YARDS of bunting to hang everywhere. I used up most of my fabric stash for the bias tape and bunting and made out like a bandit ~ $3.00 for over 30 yards! I don't think you could by streamers for that price.
I'm not big on "themes" but I'm definitely sensing a vintage feel for this party.
Old plates and vintage fabrics...why not!
Mary Grace IS my daughter,
surely she'll love them as much as I do!
More party projects to come, stay tuned.
