These are some pictures of the decorations at Claire's big party.
I strung up a picture from each of Claire's 12 months of life.
Claire helped me make this pot full of lollipops. We put a heart sticker on each one and tied a pretty pink ribbon around the stems. Claire had a very fun time pulling the ribbon off the spool and dragging it all over the room.
This vase contained a pound and a half of candy, Claire's lowest weight.
Claire's baby wore one of Claire's preemie outfits. The doll is actually bigger than Claire was in the beginning.
Claire was very excited about the balloons. She is still playing with them now.
The food, it was all homemade.
This was my favorite. . . I got a photo mat that everyone who came to the party signed. Now I have it hanging in Claire's room to remember her special day.
I am very happy with how the party turned out. Everyone said they had fun and I am proud of how much I was able to do on a very small budget.
