Birthday Decor…

We keep it small for birthdays, like really small. We don’t do a big party, because I am scared of it. And for now little M doesn’t know the difference…of course we will do bigger parties for big birthdays, but for now it’s smallish. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have a theme. Because you can bet that I totally have a theme. This theme was after little M’s current favorite animal, the zebra…although a week before her birthday she told me she wanted a Vader birthday…Vader will have to wait (maybe forever), because this birthday was all zebra. You saw her little zebra outfit already, but here is the rest of the decor…

We made cookies on a stick for her school party. Why cookies? Well, because 20 preschoolers with cupcakes would just be madness.
Also, did you know duct tape makes a zebra tape? Oh yes, it does, and it is pure genius. I taped up everything.
For our home party we made the cupcakes…
The favors were oreo cookies, because stripes…you see?
More duct tape. On the drinks, natch.
I love a banner that matches the theme.
The birthday girl.

    Super duper cute! Who knew that tape could come in zebra colors too! Darling pics. Josie has requested a flamingo party for her June birthday. Crazy girl.
