BatMaxx

Batman, Birthday, Boy

I know it’s cliche to say, but where has the time gone? We were planning a Tiffany inspired baby shower the last I remember and yet I find I’ve just completed First Birthday decor for the baby we were showering! Yikes!

Maxx is one! BatMaxx that is! My beautiful friend asked if I’d help with some items for the special event and I couldn’t resist! Batman was the theme but BatMaxx was the star! This event took place in New York, so I wasn’t able to see it in person all put together, but thought I’d share the images I did receive.

I madthe birthday banner for the dessert table by cutting out buildings to replicate a city scape and added the lettering on top of 3d foam dots. Maxx’s name is made from classic comic book coversand the letters atop of foam dots again. The custom cupcake wrappers were complete with cape and personalized toppers. Maxx’s mom and grandma made Maxx’s name from comic book paper covering paper mâché letters; so clever!

Custom water bottlewraps and candy bar wrappers added decor to each place setting.

The custom “I am 1” banner was perfect for photos of Maxx and his cake. And a personalized, wipeable splash mat to catch the mess below.

I made the sign as a gift from Maxx’s grandma. Lots of paint and sanding and stain to give it the “aged” look. I thought it turned out pretty neat.

She’s a Perfect 10!

Birthday, Girl, Gumball, Gymnastics, Invitations, Misc

Ten years ago, my sweet Dani came into this world… a decade of joy is what she has brought to my life. I believe God sent me an angel in the form of a beautiful little girl. Her easy-going personality helps me remember that everything doesn’t have to be planned and the best adventures sometimes aren’t, she teaches me patience with her mild temperament and calmness, she inspires me to dance as she twirls through our home, daily, and she fills my heart with more love than I thought it possible to hold. I look back over these past ten years and am reminded of the milestones; first smile, first laugh, first tooth, first birthday, first steps and the joy all that brought. These next ten years will be filled with many such milestones; first car, first job, and first love. My wish for Danielle is that each of these “firsts” bring her joy and I will be here for her every step of the way!

Happy Birthday, Danielle! I love you more than words, Mom
