Birthday Time!

One of my sons recently had a birthday and we celebrated with a little party at our house. :) I wanted to share a few pics of the party decor with y'all. 

I tried my hand at making a bunting for his cake. I've since found several tutorials online that are way easier than what I did. Live and learn. :)

An overhead (me standing on a chair) shot of the table. 

I made some caramel corn the night before. These are a couple of bags I packaged up for some guests. 

These plates and rolled up napkins were for the pizza we had.

The buffet also held the punch bowl. I'll have to share that frozen punch recipe. I got it over 20 years ago at a baby shower. It is so good! My kids are always requesting it. :)

Another shot of the finished cake. You can see how the cake plate is still frosted from being in the fridge overnight. 

I found these little curling ribbon bows at Hob Lob and tied them onto the cutlery caddy.

If you click on this pic to make it bigger, you can see this curling ribbon says "Happy Birthday" on it.

I just used my standard birthday decor for the mantle.

We have many more birthdays coming up this summer, so be prepared to see a few different versions of this decor! :)

Y'all have a great week!



  1. Very, very cute, Lisa! I really like the bunting!

  2. What fun decorations. I love the Blow out the candle sign too. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  3. Cute decor, Lisa! I really love that big sign/banner on the cake - so creative and way cooler looking than a simple candle. :D

    1. Thanks, Cassie! That banner really gave me a hard time at first, but I'm glad it turned out ok. :) Thanks for the sweet comment and visit!

  4. How cute and the cake, I think i'll take a large piece! !

  5. This looks awesome!!! We would love it if you would link up at our linky party:
    Live every Wednesday to Sunday.

  6. So fun celebrating birthdays and you have done it up in a big way...looks wonderful!
    Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday!

  7. I love your decorations! I was wondering if you have the recipe to your punch anywhere on your blog? I am looking for a good punch recipe for my hubby's bday. I liked you on fb and was wondering if you could like me back? Thanks!
