First Birthday Ideas & Inspiration: Cupcake boxes and giant balloons!

With my daughter’s first birthday party just over a week away (I can’t believe it!) I’ve been scouring the web for neat decor ideas to help turn a dull park pavilion into a birthday wonderland. Today I came across these adorable little cupcake holders at Myrtle & Grace, how cute are these?! These would be perfect for guests to take a cupcake home with them! I wish I would have found these sooner but I’ve got so many other things to do in preparation I don’t think I have the time! Seems simple enough but tedious work, check out the full tutorial over at Myrtle & Grace.

In my adventures looking for first birthday decor inspiration, I also came across this idea, love it! I purchased 3 giant balloons for Baby Digger’s high chair – so fun!

      I purchased the giant balloons from, they were the cheapest and if you wait until the weekend to order they have a 20 percent off coupon!
