My purchases #2

My sweet baby A turned 1 last month and I had a wonderful day of festivities planned with cakes, cookies, handmade favors, etc. What I did not plan for was a tornado!!! Ok, they are now saying that it was a micro-burst...but when a 40 yr old tree is uprooted right outside of your window ripping up the deck and power lines are severed it sure seemed like a tornado.

After staying up baking until 4am, I sadly had to cancel the party (sniff); however, I was thankful that everyone was safe.

Anyway, what I wanted to share with all of you are the wonderful Etsy purchases that I made to celebrate and decorate. Above you can see several adorable hairbows and flowers from Busymomof5 and mazzy522 (see photo above of happy fam in front of uprooted tree). I even joined in the fun and wore a flower.

As favors I baked and iced cookies and tied them with adorable tags from papertreats. So cute and a big hit (cookies AND tags).

While the day did not turn out as planned, we were still able to celebrate and I am sure that baby A did not even realize the change in plans (she slept through the horrible storm).
