One thing I can say about myself is that I love to plan ahead and love to plan my kids birthday parties!!! In 2 months my Baby Girl will be turning the big 1! I can't believe how time has flown by and I know the next couple of months will too. I wanted to start planning ahead by doing a thing or 2 or 3 each week before the party. My goal is to have all my crafts done the week of the party so that I can just enjoy the big occasion and not be stressed out.
One of the most important things of a 1st birthday is the 1st bite of cake the baby takes. I want to do cupcakes for the party. I realized that I need something to display them on. I got inspired by this blog and made my own Tiered Cupcake Stand!
#1. I found boxes that would stack proportionally and that will leave space around the edges for the cupcakes.
#2. I wrapped the boxes in coordinating colors for the party.
# 3. I decorated the boxes with recycled ribbon and black foam paper(from The Dollar Store).
#4. I added a couple props to go along with the 1st Birthday theme...can you guess what the theme of the party will be?
Now just imagine it with cupcakes!!
