Even though we didn't have a big party for Dutch I was still able to get my craft on for his birthday celebration.
His invitations were super simple. I printed them on cardstock, painted with water colors, traced a popsicle shape, glued them together with a popsicle stick in between them paper and mailed them out!
I made some really ugly sugar cookies for everyone to keep in their hotel room to snack on. They weren't too pretty but they tasted so good. I used this recipe for the cookies and this recipe for the icing here.
Seriously these loo so terrible! The orange looks like American cheese. So funny but tasted so good!
I made this adorable banner but it stayed at our house. I started with the day Dutch was born and a photo from every month up and ended with his birthday. Lots of smiles from this kid. This will probably always be up because it makes us happy.
I needed something for the front door so I painted this birthday cake... on cardboard. Why did I do that? I thinking if I seal it maybe we can reuse it?
Things I didn't make because I know my limits.
Dutch's popsicle holding octopus party shirtJake N Me. It was super cute!
ordered from etsy shop Southern Hands LLC. I ordered the seersucker one the first time but game them the wrong monogram. They were really nice to rush me out one with the right monogram. I want everything in this shop.
Dutch's party hat
I felt really bad for not making this myself but it was just easier to order and the party hat turned out amazing. Ordered from etsy shop Hilly House.
