Yayy!!! My first official post! I've always have helped decorate parties or even helped set up food, but I had never planned a whole party by myself. The first time I planned a whole party was my niece's 1st birthday back in 2009. For her party we went with the theme Abby Cadabby. This was my first real party that I planned. I was so excited to finally plan a party. My Sister and Mom picked the theme and I did the rest. I planned the decorations, the food, and even made the goodie bags. Looking back now, I wish I had my creative juices flowing because I would have done a better job on her goodie bags. We had got a family friend to make the labels and I just placed candy inside each bag. Looking back, I wish I would have not just used candy in the goodie bags because we had a Huge Abby Cadabby pinata full of tons and tons of candy, so instead of placing candy in the party favors I would have got more creative. Thank goodness for more birthdays because I have a chance to do her next party over.
Here are the Goodie Bags I made in 2009:
If I had a chance to do my niece's goodie bags over
here's how I would re-do her Abby Cadabby Goodie Bags:
I would have handmade her bags using tulle.
