Kate's Birthday Decor...{photo heavy}

So, it has only been about a month ago since Kate's birthday...
now I am finally posting about the whole thing.
I am a photo procrastinator on this one!

This was actually set up in my living room {for a while} until
I can do the photo shoot.  I also had to make a new set of cupcakes
to take this picture.
I covered my craft table with a canvas drop cloth.
 I used Canvas Corp Round canvas shapes and cut them in half for this scalloped edge.
Then it was easy to add the banners and butterflies.  I thought of painting the scallops, but
I thought it would be better to keep it neutral to use for other occasions. 
{2 of the butterflies are made out of Canvas Corp Corkstock}

 Would you believe that when I was taking these pictures it was storming outside?
It was pitch black. I had my boys holding lamps up for light on the side.
 Who doesn't love a great vintage scale in a tablescape?  :)
 This is a tiered shelf from Kate's room that I altered a little by adding some
embellishments.  I used all Canvas Corp patterned paper.
 I thought that it would be fun to have Kate's hands on canvas.  I used a 10"x10" Canvas Corp canvas and DecoArt paints {bahama blue and peony pink}.
 A great keepsake...
I just love using the mini clothespins to attach everything {Canvas Corp}.

  A top view of the Cupcake stand.  Canvas Corp's blank cupcake stands are soooo easy to alter.  I used Beacon Adhesive Fabric Tac to attach everything...and it works awesome.

 It is hard to tell in this picture but I used DecoArt SoSoft fine glitter paint {ice crystal}
on the canvas mini triangle.

  1. The cupcakes and the Keepsake Handprint = my favorite! I wish I was this crafty for my son's first birthday. Well, he's 18 months now, so I can always plan for the 2nd :)

  2. Wow! I love every last detail, Jenn! The colors are fantastic, and it looks so fun for a little girl. I'm drooling over the decorate-your-own cupcake stand. :)

  3. This is great! I need to get to work on the decor for my son's 3rd birthday at the beginning of August, right now! lol.

  4. Every detail is so wonderful, creative and whimsical!

  5. Oh so pretty! Love the scallop runner!
