It's Birthday Time Around Here

My Monkey is turning two in a couple of weeks!!! I can hardly believe it! This of course means it's time for me to start creating!(Surprise surprise) She is having an Elmo/Sesame Street party this year. So here is what I came up with. . .
A 3-tiered birthday Cake made from paper mache hat boxes. I did not add the Sesame Street stuff to this so that she could use it for each birthday. It will all stack inside it's self so it will be easy to store. Next are the Centerpieces. Bryanna bought table cloths in all the characters colors (10 round tables) so there will be a character hat on each table. We rented the Clubhouse at our pool for her party. Lots of guests and scorching hot days means you need to be inside or by the pool. This gives us the best of both worlds!

Last but not least is the Book. This will be out at the party as a guest book for people to sign (on the "Count your guests" page only) after the party I will fill it up with photos from the party for my Bryanna. All of this white and primary colors was a challenge for this "dark, inky & vintage" girl! If you want to see the insides of the book and close-ups of the cake & hats just click on the 1st photo.
So Now I am done with the brights - it's time to get busy in my color scheme. The Next two days I will be busy cutting paper and making kits for some upcoming classes. What are your big plans for this week????? Whatever it is I hope you find a way to stay cool!

I really like the idea of using the hat boxes! I'm doing an Elmo party and am going to use that idea for a centerpiece! You're very creative!
