First Birthday Centerpieces

Over this past week I had the pleasure of designing and creating centerpieces for a special little girl who was celebrating her FIRST birthday.

The theme was winter "one"derland and the colors were pink, white and silver.

The centerpieces were three sided with a different photo of the Birthday girl on each side!

White and silver satin ribbon adorned each side and silver snowflakes with Rhinestone centers added to the snowflake theme.

A snowflake was hand-cut out of foam board and embellished with a pink and silver glittery "1", some rhinestones and a white glitter border. Tons of pink and white curled ribbon was glued to the top and cascaded down.

I had the pleasure of attending the party and got to see the centerpieces in action:

Ballons were tied to the snowflake to complete the look

Happy First Birthday to a very special little girl! I know that everyone at the party enjoyed seeing all of the pictures of you throughout the past year on each of the tables.

Cute Custom Hats for a special little one

One of my favorite things about Etsy is all of the custom items you can request talented people to make for you!

I recently asked one of my SNEAKY friends for custom hand knitted hats for my daughter and friend. A pale pink because my daughter is very girly!

Yesterday Stockannette finished this project and posted on Etsy! I can't wait to get them!!

Here are some pics:

A Pink and Green Party!

Ever since I started Happy Hound, I've always wanted to design an entire party from the invitations, centerpieces, favors, place cards and thank you cards.  I've been so excited to share my first party ensemble based on the colors Pink and Green.

First the invitation:

The invitation was really two pieces, an outer folder with some decorative paper, ribbon and a photo and then wording mounted on shiny pink card stock, decorative paper and embellished with pink and green ribbon slid out of the top of the folder.


Every aspect of the centerpieces were hand made by me. The base consisted of 3 sides and each side had a different picture of the guest of honor. No photo was duplicated so guests could visit each table to see all of the pictures. The paper flowers in the middle were made by hand. 

Place Cards:


Pink and Cream M&M's were printed with the Guest of Honor's name, placed in pink and green organza bags (Handmade by: Boxes and More), Pink and Green Felt Flowers (Handmade by: SuperCrafts on Etsy, who doesn't appear to be there anymore ) were glued to the front of the bag along with a pink and green tag.

Thank You Cards:

This was so fun for me and I can't wait to do it again. As soon as time permits I am going to start putting ensembles like this on Etsy. I am currently working on the same kind of thing for a wedding this summer and will be sure to share the photos! Pin It Now!
