EmmaKate's First Birthday Party: Southern Style

I know this is my teaching blog, but I just have to share this adorable birthday party theme I've put together for my baby girls first birthday. It's not generic, it's one of a kind and I'm thrilled to share my ideas! This is a southern style theme that incorporates burlap, gold glitter, and a light coral. I'm super excited about this! I bought everything at Michaels and a few TJ Max finds. I was so excited when I started putting this together that I got a little out of control and it got a little expensive. Of course, I saved some money for this little project. I've included a list of items I purchased at Michaels and TJ Max.

I covered the canvas letter "E" in burlap. This could also be spray painted with glitter paint. I cut the glitter hearts, flags and glitter letters out with my cricut. I found a package of burlap flowers and used them as confetti. My favorite items are the milk jugs with the straws. I just love this! The basket for holding cards was a Ross find I do believe. The scalloped pieces are going to have her pictures for each month of her one year that will be cut and taped to them. I purchased the burlap banner in a pack and put the letters on it. this set up was so much fun! I plan to add some light mint colors as well!! If you would like help crafting up this party, just message me!

FREEBIE: Monthly Binder Spines

Summer has finally arrived for this gal and I am just so thrilled to be home with my babies. Gaining the freedom to do exactly what I want when I want makes teaching all the more worth it all. I have a lot of plans for the summer including trip to Colorado to see a life long friend as well as a trip to Florida to pay a much needed visit to the beach with my little family. I hope everyone has plenty of plans for their summer! I've added some free binder spines to my shop and I hope y'all will enjoy!
