I have been blogging about baby Ever Tai over on another blog, but after a great response and lots of support from you guys I have decided to move it back on here. My blog is fast becoming everything that encompasses my life and Ever is such a big part of that so I want to share it all with you. I'll continue to post Ever diaries here with tips, experiences, and general life with the munchkin type stuff. If you want to read any past posts click over to read the archives about my pregnancy and first year with her.
Ever's first birthday is now less than a month away, so after locking in a location this afternoon, I have started a Pinterest browsing marathon to seek inspiration and ideas for my little princess. Since she's pretty much as girly as it gets, we are going with a pink and silver theme, and incorporating plenty of florals. Ever is a big fan of flowers and anything shiny, so we'll make sure there's copious amounts of both for her to get giddy about.
To be honest, I'm not loving the pre-made birthday signs I've found on the party websites, so have looked to Etsy for some options. I have ordered a fabric name sign from Cheeky Stitches to hang at the party, and the best part is it can be used as decoration in her room afterwards Pinterest has an insane amount of ideas for DIY decor options and I've pinned a few of my favourites. I love the idea of DIY lace crowns, tissue garlands, and you must see this fairy tea party which may be the cutest thing I've ever witnessed. I'll be visiting Artland soon for a supplies run and will Instagram my progress as we go along.
I haven't quite decided which cake we will be getting for the party, and I am partial to the cupcake idea as it's less messy and easier to share around. I also found great recipes for marshmallow lollipops and rice crispy treats both using pink striped paper straws, which I thought would be tempting as snacks and party favours.
Ever's dress will be her first couture, custom piece by one of my favourite local designers, Melissa Bui. How ridiculously cute are her sketches?! Melissa doesn't usually do children's wear but I heard from a little birdy she may begin soon, so keeps your eyes and ears open. Can you imagine all the amazing embroidery and princess worthy gowns on your little ones? Too perfect.
Ok that's all for now. I'll be back with another Ever Diary soon. Keep up with her adventures on Instagram under the hashtag #EverTai.
