It's a Ballerina Birthday Party

Hello, hello.  Wow.  It has been a long time--too long.  It's been a crazy couple of months.  We had an unplanned move, a few trips, birthdays, and well, just life.  But here I am again.  I am excited for life to slow down a bit (hopefully) so I can get some more crafting and blogging done!

I decided to do cupcakes this year rather than a cake---best idea EVER!  Cupcakes are SO much easier.  I made these cute little toppers for the cupcakes:

And of course, there was a pinata!  I made several tissue-paper flowers, and hot-glued them to my paper-mache balloon.  Pretty simple!
Simple little banners:
 Happy Birthday to my Halle Girl!
