Guest Designing for Decorate to Celebrate ~ Jungle/Safari First Birthday

Today I am Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate!!

This month at DTC, there is a HUGE birthday celebration going on to celebrate Rhonda’s and Amy’s Birthdays. With this being a Birthday Celebration, I decided to share with you the decorations I made for my baby’s first Birthday.

We chose to have a Baby Jungle/Safari themed party for our little guy. For the goody bags I used Create a Critter for the hippo and zebra, and for the elephant and monkey I used New Arrival.

The banner was made using Birthday Bash, New Arrival, and Create a Critter.
(This is so much cuter in person!!)

The next few pictures are closeups of the cute baby animals.

I made these as wall decor.

These are the cupcakes we did instead of cake. The toppers were finger puppets that the kids had so much fun playing with.

And here is our sweet little man enjoying his cake and ice cream!

Please swing by the DTC blog to see what the other guest designers have come up with and to enter your birthday creations into the challenge.

  16. The bags that you used for the animal cookies, would you be willing to make more and sell them? I am in need of about 70 bags using the same animals you used, but with purple and pink backgrounds for my baby shower and instead of the word birthday use baby shower.
