big fringe + goody bags

For the party, I made big fringe garlands (see first photo) out of coloured cellophane. I was actually looking for this "Mylar" stuff that I'd read so much about on other blogs but alas I couldn't find any (for cheap) in Auckland.

These are going to be part of the photo booth.

party party party

I'm planning (and decorating for) a first birthday party for the very cute Shanaya!

Her parents, who are our family friends, approached me after they came to our New Years' Eve party, for which I had decorated our house and created a photobooth (the theme was black, white and gold).

The theme for Shanaya's party is pink and yellow/gold, and I am currently knee deep in gold crepe paper and giant cellophane fringe! I hope to get some behind-the-scenes photos up here soon. I would've uploaded a few now but drat my phone's battery has—of course—died.

Eeeeeee, exciting stuff!!! :D Check out my pinterest for party or craft ideas!
