Pin It & Do It – Birthday Edition

I never actually joined the May Pin It & Do It challenge. But I ended up using Pinterest for some of the inspiration for E’s party. So I’m doing a wrap-up anyway. Plus, you guys get a little preview of the party before I do my real post (just waiting on the pictures).

Pin It: Cloth diaper and tie for smash cake.

Do It: I modified this and did a cloth diaper and bib. Made for easy clean up! (I promise there is a diaper under there)

Pin It: Hunny Pots

Do It: I made four hunny pots for E’s birthday and filled them with candy. Deciding what to do with them now. I also made some of those bees and had the kids make them as a craft project at the party.

Pin It: Pooh Invitations

Do It: These were so adorable, I went straight to Etsy and bought them. It required printing them myself, which proved a bit challenging due to some copyright issues. But I managed. I used those little squares as envelope seals.

Pin It: Instagram One

Do It: I not only made a “1,” I made a “ONE!” And it worked out as an “E,” too. I used regular photos since I had a bunch of those rather than printing instagram photos.

 Pin It: Ballon Photo

Do It: Well, we didn’t have the chair and Evan didn’t want to hold the balloons and then he fell on one and then they kept popping and I don’t have the photos back yet, so I have no idea if it worked.

How’s that for an unofficial participant? I should not join challenges more often!

    You did a lot of cute things! What did you end up putting in the hunny pots, looks like Werthers? I like your photo 1 and ONE better than the original. 🙂

      They are Werther’s. I think they worked well.

      I like my ones better also. 🙂

    SO many awesome things! I about died when I saw the cake smash photo, though. Evan looks adorable but wow what a mess. 😉 I so wanted to do some balloons with Elle for her first birthday but she wasn’t having it so alas. And I STILL have to take her two year photo.

    Evan’s starting to look more and more like a toddler!

      Apparently other people’s children are more cooperative with balloons?

      The cake mess was outside though! Just put the baby in the tub and hosed off the deck. Easy peasy.
