My Birthday Party Inspriations

Party day is almost here!  
Of course my boys would end up getting sick 48 hours before their party :(  We'll be pumping them full of liquids, slathering on the Vicks, and firing up the humidifiers to try and get them better ASAP.   We're keeping our fingers crossed that we have good enough weather to have some of the festivities outside.  I'm prepared if it needs to be indoors but it will be so much more fun outside.  
Here's hoping!

Thought I'd share some of my inspirations and tutorials for the party details.

The birthday banner I made was inspired by Megan at Our House of Pink.  See her tutorial here.

 She in turn was inspired by someone else.  Isn't it great how the inspiration chain works!  And we all add our own little something to the idea.  Love the vibrant pink she's using for her party for her little girl.  Wouldn't I love to have a little pink in the house! Luckily I have a sweet niece that I can be girly with.

Natalie at The Busy Budgeting Mama has inspiration for so many different amazing party ideas.  She has made cupcake toppers for many different occasions and designs and sells them on Etsy.   
See her Etsy shop here.  

Her cupcake toppers are way more chic than mine but I love making cupcakes for birthdays and decided to give these paper toppers a shot this year.  Since I was spending more time on the other details, this was an easy way to spruce up the cupcakes without having to create a decoration out of icing for on the top.  Aren't Natalie's valentine's cupcakes adorable?!

Can't wait to share the details of our Old West Mining party with you.  Hopefully I'll have that post sometime next week.  Have a great weekend everyone!
