"Project Birthday"



It's hard to believe that this time seven years ago I was on my way to the hospital to have my first baby.  My oldest daughter (of two), Sydney, will celebrate her 7th birthday tomorrow!  She is a total "bird nerd" and so she has chosen a bird theme for her decorations.  We don't have big parties for our girls in terms of having friends over or renting out a place.  We keep it small and generally have my parents over for a late lunch and then cake, presents and fun with the family.  Each birthday the girls choose a theme and we go all out with decorations.  This year my daughter wants everything birds (she is a true "bird nerd").  We went through my paper (tons of it) and decided on this:




We are going to use red, orange, green and probably some yellow and blue (this paper has a lot of color options).  I am making a bird banner, cupcake toppers, cupcake holders, bird confetti and maybe a garland and a couple of boxes.  I would also like to make a gift bag for her that she can use as a decoration in her room later.  I certainly have my work cut out for me!  I will post pics as soon as I'm all done - wish me luck!
