Birthday Girl

I took some birthday themed pictures of Delia a few nights ago to have on display at her little birthday party tomorrow (her actual birthday is Sunday). It's a pinwheel themed party, so I thought it'd be cute to get some pictures of her eating one of those giant swirly lollipops, kind of like a different take on the "cake smash" photos that are so popular. It turns out that she wasn't really interested in the lollipop though :) 

Anyway, here are my favorites..


  1. Very cute. My Clara turns 1 next Saturday. My oldest is 3 1/2 so the similarities between our four girls are so much fun to watch.

    Anyway I LOVE Delia's party hat. Did you make it? Is that a fabric flower on top? Is there a tutorial online anywhere for the hat dimensions?

    Thank you and have a wonderful party.

    1. Thanks for the comment! I did make the party hat. I found the template here: http://www.purejoyeventsblog.com/2011/06/tutorial-tuesday-circus-party-hat.html, then just cut it out of patterned paper. And here is the tutorial I used for the fabric flower on top (it's super easy): http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/diy-wedding-challenge-2010-fabric-flower.

    2. Thanks so much. It is so much cuter than something you buy in the party aisle section!
