Rainbow Birthday

Pumpkin's first birthday was about 10 weeks ago, so I figured it's high time I post something from the celebration. We just had a small gathering at our house, but I was pretty excited about decorating nonetheless. Once I found the invitation, I settled on a rainbow theme. Finding ideas for decorations was easy thanks to Pinterest and a few favorite blogs ...
Month-by-Month picture banner inspired by Kara's Party Ideas, via Pinterest.

Fringed number 1 inspired by Oh Happy Day.
(I made it on posterboard instead of taping to the wall.)

Streamers inspired by Oh Chickadee

Oreo Pop favors from Makoodle.

Pennants made from leftover paper from the photos at top, now serving as bedroom decor.
Since we were out of town for a few days the week before the birthday, I put the decorations up early, so it was fun to have the house look festive for a couple extra weeks. The most fun part, though, was watching Pumpkin dig into her cake. I can't believe how fast the first year went by!

Very cute! I love the photo banner! And I will have to try those oreo pops. I have done cake pops, but I have never tried cookie pops! Yum!

Thanks! The oreo pops were super easy and yummy. I want to make some other ones I saw on Pinterest dipped in orange (don't know if it was candy melts or white chocolate with food coloring) to look like pumpkins.

Ernesto and I were wondering if she had turned 1 yet or not, I said if she had celebrated a bday I am sure we would have seen something about it. Happy Belated Bday Lila!
