Martha Monday--Party decorations

There's a HUGE occasion at the TMI household this week.  BabyGirl, my sweet little bundle of cuddles, is practically all grown up...she'll be one in a few days.  Can you believe it?  Where does the time go?

Per our usual, we are in the process of having three birthday parties to accommodate all the families.  For decorations, the Big Guy decorated the foyer columns with pink crepe paper and I put several "Happy Birthday" banners throughout the house.  I did take a tip from Martha about kids' party decorations and made a "1" out of balloons.  You know, in case all these guests had no idea why they were at our house. 

I put the "1" in the foyer for all to see.  The balloons themselves are printed with "Happy 1st Birthday" so people really know what's going on. 

Here's the Balloon Blowout as Martha does it:

I don't know how many kids Martha invites to the  birthday parties she hosts, but there are a bunch that come to our house.  Can you see where this is going?

And 30 minutes after the party started:

Oh well, it was a neat decoration while it lasted. The kids had fun with the balloons, and that's really all that matters. 

And while our household is all a-twitter with BabyGirl's first birthday, she's not the only birthday we have at the TMI House this week:  Happy Birthday to the Big Guy!  We love you!

Thanks, Teryn! The Big Guy and Baby Girl's birthdays are only 4 days apart, which makes a busy week for us!
