Birthday Decor

So my life for the last few weeks has consisted of scrapbooking every spare minute... it is pretty much done now so I can focus on other things now... one of those other things was a birthday party for my baby girl...(which is why I was doing the scrapbooking and I'll try and post some pics of the book, cause it turned out pretty cute!!) I wanted to share a few of the birthday decor ideas I did...
I had an idea to display some of my favorite pictures of her from her first year of life, I edited them in picnic via picasa, printed them and hung them on some string with some paper clips!! It looked really cute!!

We bundled some balloons together and hung them up along with a couple of paper lanterns that I snagged at the dollar store and spray painted silver...

{ before & after }
I loved the silver color and the way it added to the look and feel of the room, 
not bad for a BUCK!
We made a cute little pink cake just for the birthday girl and topped it with a crepe paper monogramed doilie... For her bigger cake I did a tripe layer pink & white!
I had everyone mark, what they thought was the birthday girls birth height and current height...

::total cost::
I think I spent about $5 dollars on stuff for decor, balloons are cheap, to print off pictures is cheap and there's always good stuff at the dollar store. I had the spray paint and the paper, string & paper clips... as always use what you have, reuse what you have and be creative!!! 
Now that the scrapbooking is done maybe I can find time to paint my front room wall!
