I am a big party planner and I start planning parties wayyy in advance. I feel like I am falling behind with Chloe's 1st birthday only 4 months away! Most of our family is coming to be here for that weekend (it helps that it is also Thanksgiving weekend). I can't wait to celebrate this special day with all the family!
My sister has already mentioned she wants to make themed cupcakes. (hmm... maybe a cupcake themed party?)
I was thinking it would be so much easier to go with a couple colors and center everything around that. Like a very happy YELLOW birthday party. I am a sucker for yellow, one of my fave colors. It's so happy and cheerful. And it's not your typical pink girl party. Plus, that candy bar looks DELISH and so pretty with the ruffle streamers.

I know I want to include tons of hand made fabric flag banners. Sheri from Young House Love had made one for her daughters birthday here. And better yet, I could even make cake bunting with this tutorial from The Sweetest Occasion found here.

and I can make invites that have printed pennant banners like this:

I definitely want to have a little candy/treat/dessert bar with cute little things like cake pops and chocolate dipped pretzels and marshmallows. I could definitely make these on my own, I feel they would be super easy to make. Just decorate with sprinkles and a bow to match the colors of the party.

I cant wait to get started on planning! Anyone have any ideas or tricks of the trade for throwing a big birthday party on a tight budget? I would love to here your suggestions!
