I printed up the “Guess what the baby ate” game sheets to match the theme. The prizes were super adorable purses with nail clippers ect inside.

When I ordered the plates, cups, napkins, prizes, ect online…I got these matching babies to use as decoration & to add to the corsage.

Another fun game we played is for everyone to put a piece of paper on their head & draw a baby in 30 seconds. The best baby wins!

Pink Care Bear 1st Birthday

Birthday Week

Today I am featuring a Pink Care Bear 1st Birthday!

A little back story…

This was Daynie’s 1st Birthday. The party that sparked my obsession!

Her birthday and her party didn’t really ever cross my mind. But a couple months before she turned one…I had a dream. YES. Fo reals. I had a dream that she was a pink care bear at her first birthday. I have absolutely NO clue where it came from. But the next day I decided to just google “pink care bear birthday” and see what came up. I found EVERYTHING.  Straight up PINK CARE BEAR 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY SUPPLIES.


And then.

Then I got on Ebay.

And the ideas started going wild.

I unleashed a hidden talent obsession I didn’t know I even had.

This was about 8 years ago.

Holy Moly I just said EIGHT!




Nine years ago..

Basically my only form of computer & internet was my work computer & DIAL UP.

.I did not have party blogs to stalk. PINTEREST for ideas.


Just me & ebay.

And we got along mighty fine.

I got the shock of my life when I found this Pink Care Bear costume on eBay.


Betta believe there was no way I was ganna be outbid on that baby!

It was fate really.

I still have that costume tucked away in a box.

I also found her a pink care bear water baby on ebay for her present…it was kinda like this..but had the dark pink double heart bear costume on…like Daynie is wearing.



And yes…I still have the baby to this day 🙂

So…this was really the days before digital cameras, cell phones, & all that jazz…

So umm.. yeah…

Anyway…THAT is why all these pics are OF PICS….from an old fashioned scrapbook . Pictchas taken with a vintage disposable camera & processed at my local one hour Walmart photo lab.



And like I said…this was before I had cool photo editing software to make kickass invites in.

So I also did her invitations the old school way…scrapbook paper & an inkjet printer.

BOOYAH! Take THAT technology!



I might have had a teeny tiny obsesh with vellum in those days.



We actually had her party an hour away from where we lived.  We worked and Daynie went to daycare in the town next where the party was….and I wanted to have it somewhere close to there so her “friends” from school would come. And they did 🙂




This was the entrance. 20130426-095437.jpg



I set up her one year old pics, a guest book, some baby pics, & a few little deco.20130426-095455.jpg




I used some of her toys out in the middle of the room for the babies to play on!20130426-095536.jpg




This is where ebay fed my creativity! I found soooo much awesome stuff!

Of course it might seem weird to have poker at a 1 year old’s party…but c’mon folks..the guys gotta have SOME kinda fun!





I found every single one of these games on ebay. They were all used of course but in great condition! The poker chips were new though….they were actually chocolate!




This is the cake I made. One of the FIRST cakes I ever decorated!


This cake Walmart did. I knew I wanted her photos on it…One taken each month her first year…but Walmart totally jacked the cake up by adding the freakin white frosting around every picture. Ugh!

See that little sippy cup…we still have it!!








I also still have the #1 care bear candle that was on her cake.

And the bib. Yeah…I might be a bit of a memory keepin freak.
