the birthday outfit
I made this tutu by hand using the colors I planned to use for the party. Purple, dark blue and dark green.
I ordered this adorable bloomer/onesie set online. I added some purple ribbon to it and came up with this final product.
My first "wow!" cake! Again, my sister helped me with this cake. It was the first time either of us had ever used fondant, so it was definitely a learning experience for us both. The decorations are made from fondant, royal icing and melted chocolate. The "sand" is brown sugar. And the gorgeous topper...
...was purchased on Esty from Tina of clayinaround. I love it so much, I've used her more than once!
Purple, green and blue streamers symbolized the "waves". I added some pink streamers to my light fixture to give it a "jelly fish" look. I decorated a large box with brown paper and draped it with plastic jewels to look like a treasure chest. This is where the guests put Sami's gifts.
Balloons made a great touch, everywhere! Note the "seaweed" around the treasure chest.
"Fish" and "bubbles".
Even an "octopus"!
At Christmas time, I'd bought some of those M&M tubes when they went on clearance. I saved the empty tubes for Sami's party favors. Each had a tissue flower on top and were filled with Gummy Aqua Life.
