Our latest party was a Wheels on the bus party. It was for a 2 year old. This toddler is totally infatuated with the song "The Wheels on the Bus" so it seemed natural to do a party for her with that theme. We had so much fun with this theme. It is an unusual theme, so everything was hand made. The cricut got a serious workout with this party!
Napkins and napkin rings. Buses of course!!
Both of these resembled stop lights. The fruit kabobs and peppers.

We had a red sox baby shower for a Mom who is a true Red Sox fan! We were able to hand make everything using the cricut and some imagination!! We decided to do ballpark food. We had pretzels, popcorn, chips, and some other goodies. Since we are located near Boston, we had plenty of people to borrow red sox decorations from.

This was our first official party was a bee 1st birthday party. We had so much fun planning this party that we have gone on to plan other parties together. We were not able to find "bee" things so we made all of the decorations. We used our paper cutter and went to town!!
|The table setup for the party. The vases were filled with yellow and black candy for guests to take home. We took some boxes and wrapped them with yellow paper to add some height.|
|Of course the birthday girl had to have an amazing cake!!!|
|Since it was first birthday party, a bee smash cake was made. I used fondant and icing. The wings were made out of gumpaste.|
|We made our own tissue paper balls to hang on the ceiling. They were so easy to make. It was only a matter of layering and cutting paper.|
|Guests were also given honey sticks. They were a huge hit! I found them online. I wrapped them with small bees.|
|This was the bee invitation.|
|We made banners to hang in the room by the table. These were easily made with the paper cutter we have.|
