One Year Decorations

So my new blogging friend, Lesley gave me a whole bunch of advice for decor for a one year birthday because I was in love with so much of what she did for her little one year old's party recently.

One of the ideas was a black & white photo collage which I thought was a great idea. Pick photos from the first year and decoupage them for the party and then use it as room decor afterward. I've always loved the idea of memorializing the first year in some way so this was right up my ally.

This is what I finally came up with after several hours manipulating photos and then figuring out exactly how I wanted it all to come together. I'm really in love with the final product and now just need to find a place on her wall to place it.

I think I'll do one for Bugs when she turns 6.

How very cute! You are super creative and I'm still flattered that you would get any ideas from me : ) I love the frame around it!

Good luck getting the rest of the party planned. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures!
