First birthday ideas found on Pinterest

I can hardly believe it, but Rowan will be turning one in just a couple of weeks!  We’re not having a big party, just a play date with our friends that involves cake (and probably balloons) but that hasn’t stopped me from gathering ideas from Pinterest.

I love this birthday shirt and might just try to make one myself:

Then there are all the fun decorations.  A good friend of mine used this tutorial to make a balloon banner for her little guy’s first birthday this past Sunday and it turned out great, so I might give it a shot myself:

And I have more than enough scrapbooking supplies to make a re-usable “Happy Birthday” banner!

This rainbow fruit tray is adorable and would be so easy to make.

My biggest indecision is what sort of cake to make.  I have made Ashlyn’s first and second birthday cakes and had no problem deciding what theme to pick, but for some reason I’m really stumped for Rowan.  Owl?  Cat?  Bunny?  A simple 1?  I just can’t figure out what to do and I’m running out of time!

    How about a rainbow shape and make the cake a rainbow?

      I was thinking about that Brenda – I have a rainbow cake pinned but I was going to make it for the cousin’s birthday (all 4 girls on Jordan’s side have their birthday’s within 7 weeks of each other). I have a super cute owl cake pinned and I’m really leaning towards it – today at least LOL!
