some easy, quick pompom flowers from tissue paper. i used this tutorial. these were really fun! i want to make some to hang from the ceiling in my daughters room now. tissue paper is really inexpensive too. ;)
thank you gifts for the kids. little $1 coloring books from michaels that i wrapped in comic paper and tied with a ribbon. blue for boys and pink for girls of course!
and a little garland out of cupcake holders. i just strung them on a ribbon with a needle. very quick and easy. i got the idea from here. i also made another garland out of these to hang from the mantle.
and some crepe paper streamers from a light fixture with some more cupcake streamers. for this one, i just tied a knot in the ribbon on the bottom. easy!
and the birthday girl! happy birthday princess! i love you!!
