First Steps

I have already started to prepare a few things for Millyana's Birthday. I know, I know, it is still over a month away. I just want to enjoy the experience and not have to rush at the last minute to get things done. Plus we have company coming in a couple of week. Hooray! My brother, Cody and his fiance, Ombretta are coming to town. It will be the first time I meet his super cutie Italian fiance. I just cannot wait.
Anyhoo, back to the party. Here is the color palette I am going with. Sunny yellows, orange, pinks with a splash of aqua. And another fun thing I found was a mold for little starfish candies. So sweet! So I have started to make an army of fun, orange starfish candies to put on cupcakes and around her smash cake. The mold only has two so I can only make two at a time. See why I started early?

1st Birthday Inspiration

I cannot believe our little girl is going to be one year old in just a couple of months! I love this print from Mary Englebreit and Millyana loves the water and swimming so I am going to use this for my inspiration. I want to do a sunny theme with lots of red, orange and yellow. Stayed tuned for more Birthday Extravaganza planning!
