Oh My Stars Gretta Turned 1!!!

Are you ready for a dose of adorable this afternoon?  Way back in November (umm… last year!!), my little Gretta turned 1.  So we had a fun and simple, DIY celebration – using items that I for the most part had just laying around the house (read more about this challenge here).  It’s so much fun getting together with friends and family, even if Gretta isn’t going to remember the celebration 🙂

Creating parties around the holidays can be a little extra challenging.  My goal was to create a fun, kid and adult friendly environment that wasn’t too grown up but also didn’t clash with my Christmas decor.  The “Oh My Stars” concept was born.

A little card stock, spray paint, glitter and glue brought these handmade invitations to life.  Actually, those were the components surround most of my projects for this party.  After all, you’re never to young for some sparkle!
