Birthday Party Time!

Well, not yet, but sooner than I'd like to admit. In less than 3 months, Ginny will turn one! With how busy work is going to be over the next several weeks, I really needed to get going on planning her birthday party. After a little Pinteresting, we have a theme and I started working on her invites and some printables!

Ginny's birthday will be Wizard of Oz themed - one of my favorite stories of all time. It was between that and Alice in Wonderland, but the thought of her in a little gingham dress and ruby slippers won out big time. The big thing on my to do list will be making her dress and finding ruby slippers for her tiny feet. I have the Oz pattern from Charlie's first Halloween costume, but the trick will be making time to make it. It'll be so worth it.

Birthday to do list:

  • Make Dorothy dress
  • Find ruby slippers
  • Make invitations
  • Print and send invitations
  • Decide menu
  • Pick cake design
  • Make birthday banner
  • Pick things for goodie bags

So far, I've made the invitations, thank you cards, and tags for goodie bags. I'd really like to get moving on the dress and banner, but it'll all depend on sales at Michael's and JoAnn's. Hopefully, the next few weeks bring lots of good coupons!

  1. Payless has red glitter shoes, but I think they might not start until size 5 or 6... You could get cheap shoes and paint them/cover them with glitter if you can't find some.

    1. Ooh, that's true. Honestly, I haven't even started looking. I'm figuring between Target, WalMart, and Payless someone should have something! She has crazy tiny feet though - she's somewhere around a size 2 still, so it might be tough. Worse comes to worse, I'll just find red socks!
