These are the most adorable decorations! Please post a tutorial. I would love to make the flags for my niece's birthday at the end of the month.

I can't wait to read your tutorial!

what a cute idea....I especially like the little cherries...!

Our babies are very close in age (DD's bday is Nov. 18th) and I am up to my armpits making her birthday banner, when I happened upon your blog! Great minds think alike! I really like the idea of the pictures interspersed (sp?) with the pennants. I was thinking of cutting baby's name out of paper and tacking them onto the pennants. That way they could be removed and replaced with the birthday girl's name (I have 3). Beautiful job and I can't wait to see your finished banner!

I'm looking forward to seeing the tutorial.
You are right about the horrid themed decorations too. This year, for my daughters 5th bithday we had to have everything Disney Princess. I don't think I've ever seen so much lilac and pink!

We've also got our sons 1st birthday next month.
Where does the time go!
Its gone too quickly!

love your banner and birthday linen. I too dread the day when Julia Belle will want those themed party plates...
So far we have made it to birthday number 4 with none of those things....I can't wait to read your tutorials.

I love the birthday linens. It is so special and unique. The pictures intertwined with the flags are adorable. Very creative!

Crystal - you are so creative. I love the linens. Hard to believe Ashlyn is turning 1.


PS - LOVED your previous post. It was EXACTLY what I have been thinking/feeling.

Lovely party and a huge work!
Happy belated birthday!

I really loved the idea of the birthday linens and the hand-tracing idea when I first read about them. But, I thought my chance had passed because Eve was 5 and Judah 2... I realized today that I could still do them; better late than never. And Eliza will have them from the beginning.

My mom will be getting a call with your tutorial address so she can whip them up :)

One?! How does it happen so quickly?


yeah for a tutorial!! yeah how wonderful!!
