Fabric Bin {tutorial}

My kids got toys coming out the EARS!
We started out with a few little baskets and then the pile of toys just kept growing...and growing...and growing. SO...I got sewing! Hey that rhymes!

The Big ONE!

I had been planning my daughter's 1st birthday since she was about 7 months old. My sister brought it to my attention that my daughter would be celebrating her golden birthday this year since she was born on the first of the month. I was very excited about this because it meant I had a theme and it wasn't one that was cheesy or over done! So I got crafting...unfortunately for you we got caught up in the day and failed to take any good photos of the decor :( So you're just going to have to use your remember how to do that right?

Here's what you can't see...
I made gold pom poms out of fabric and tulle and hung them above the cake table.
I made a string of gold fabric garland using scraps of fabric knotted onto a gold string and pinned it above the table as well.
I lined the table with a gold table cloth that gathered around the front.
I made my daughters hat(with some help from a girlfriend), skirt, and bow (they are pictured below).
My husband & I collaborated on the cakes. Our daughters is pictured but the adult one is not. It was our take on a traditional Swedish Princess Torta to honor my husbands heritage.
Most of the rest is pictured. I am soooo very sorry I didn't take better photos. Please enjoy the ones we have and know that we were just having too much fun I guess!
