Nowadays, it seems like everyone is taking monthly baby pictures. Not wanting to miss out, I also took pictures of Emma every month. One of my friends gave me onesies at my baby shower with numbers painted on them, and I had so much fun taking pictures of Emma in her special onesies every month. But what to do with all those adorable photos? Why, display them at her first birthday party, of course! I decided to make a banner using all of her monthly baby pictures and hang them up in front of our dining room window for the party.
All I did was print out one photo for each month, glue each one to some purple scrapbook paper, and string them on a purple ribbon. Since Emma was wearing a white flowered headband in many of the photos, I also added little fabric flowers between each photo.
I also printed out some teddy bears onto brown paper and included them on the banner in order to keep with the bear theme. I added a flower behind each teddy bear's head because it was just so cute.
The rest of my decorations for the party included a teddy bear birthday cake and a bunch of teddy bear books that I checked out from the local library. I also tied purple ribbons around all of Emma's stuffed animals and set them up around the house. It was really easy, and turned out so cute.
This banner is still hanging up a month later, but I love the way it turned out, and when I take it down I think it'll be pretty easy to transfer it to a scrapbook. I'm already excited to start taking monthly photos for my next baby!
