My good friend Angela, who I used to work with at Belle of the Ball, just celebrated the first birthday of her second son, Austin. You may remember the fabulous football party she planned for her first little man, Parker. She's back with another amazing party! This time, the theme revolved around the letter "A" and the alphabet. There are so many great pictures and ideas to share!
The cute and simple kids table. Perfect for the little ones!
Angela cut out different shaped "A's" from poster board and painted them in coordinating colors.
Lanterns and painted "A's" hung from different lengths above the food table in the kitchen.
Angela was tempted to order a mantel and highchair banner from Etsy, but in the end, decided to give it a try herself. She did a GREAT job! The mantel pictures came from Walmart, which she had printed in a sepia tone with an artsy border. She then attached the pictures to scrap book paper using double sided tape. The last step was to hole punch holes and weave ribbon through.
Angela used Microsoft Publisher to design the highchair garland. She cut out the pieces with scissors and did not even use a cricut!
The yummy cakes came from Celebrations & Sweet Creations.
A simple rubber stamp added to white paper plates shows how Angela loves to pay attention to even the tiniest detail.
I LOVED the sign-in book! It was a photo book (from Walmart Photo). Each page had a picture of Austin and represented a letter from the alphabet which correlated to something in Austin's life...like "V is for Vero Beach" where Angela was born and where they travel to often.
Each child received a personalized favor bag.
The proud parents with the birthday boy!
** To make the A that greeted guests at the front door, Angela cut out the letter from poster board and then glued on crinkled up tissue paper. Very easy and inexpensive!
