I have wanted to post a few pictures of things I made for my son’s party, along with sources.  When I started looking through my pictures though, it turns out I didn’t take very many (bummer!)

These tissue paper puffs (now hanging above the changing table)
were super simple to make and I used recycled tissue paper. I think most were remnant from his baby shower actually.  I used this tutorial (but forgot to snip the corners.)

Favors were cookies and bubbles.  The cookies are from the Wilton site, but without the sticks (really, who needs their cookie to be on a stick??) I capped the bubbles with Elmo cupcake papers and ribbon.

Ever since finding Amanda Soule’s site I wanted to have a baby just to make him a birthday crown!  Well, I wanted a baby anyway.  I thought about putting a number on it like  this tutorial, but would rather have him use his crown for many many birthdays to come.  (The elastic can easily be adjusted or replaced should it not stretch enough.)

But before you think I have it all together, I have to share this.

Felt letters on sticky backing.  Again, inspired by Soulemama, I wanted to make a banner.  I did manage to do the most time-consuming part, but never managed to finish it.  I will have it finished by my Dad’s sixtieth birthday though, so we can use it there.  I was also inspired by several tutorials, including this and this.
