For my daughter Gigi’s first birthday I threw her a Fancy Pants Birthday Party!

So watch out, things are about to get fancy.

Let’s start with decor. I had a very limited budget, and by limited I mean technically none. So I tried to use things I had around. Which, luckily in my case, is a lot of random stuff.

To help my guest feel even fancier when they arrived I set out a dress table. I made fascinators (miniature headpieces) for the women to choose from, and bowties for the gentlemen.

The fancy party hats were actually very easy to make, and very inexpensive!

The tutorial for the Fancy Party Hats is here!!

For the tables I simply cut giant felt “1”s and then placed out some sugar cookies I made. I also used those Ikea champagne flutes (rimmed with hot pink sprinkles) to give the tables some pop.

My mom and sister helped do the food. They went OVER THE TOP! I hope they didn’t feel any pressure…

To keep people happy I made a “Pin the Fancy Pants on the Pony” game and a photo wall with some fun signs.

Ginger, of course, would not keep her party hat on.

But let’s get to what really matters. The baked goods. I plan on doing individual posts with the details of each baked good. So let me know if you have any questions. I did all the sweets!

There are SO many more photos I want to share. But we’ll start with just that! I don’t want to overwhelm you. Too late? All in all, it was a wonderful day. And despite the face she’s making with me, Gigi loved all the attention. Attention and sugar.
