First Birthday: Book Themed Decorations

by , under Book Themed First Birthday Party

As you already know if you’ve been following this blog, my son’s first birthday was vintage book themed.  Here are some decorations I made for the occasion.

Book Page Votives

These are made by mod podging half of a vintage book page on to a (very clean) baby food jar.  If you don’t have vintage book pages, pick up a thesaurus for $1 at Dollar Tree.  While you’re there, grab a bag of  tea lights, too.

“ONE” High Chair Banner

Made from vintage children’s’ book pages mod podged onto cardstock and black painted  Sharpied chipboard letters, this ONE banner was the perfect touch for my son’s high chair.  I just duct taped the ends of the string underneath the top tray to hold it on.

Green Mini Book Banner

I made these with a thesaurus and patterned cardstock.  They were strung in front of the cupcake table.  Let me tell you, having cupcakes made the entire dishing out cake part of a birthday party go so much smoother!
