Gummy Bear 1st Birthday Bash

It was nearly 1 year since my lil bundle of joy had arrived and I wanted to do something special for his birthday ~ something he would like.....i thought and thought finally my baby gave me a hint...he loved gummy bear video, so i decided to do that as the birthday theme. It is so hard to find much on the theme so I have decided to blog on this to help out other moms who want to do a similar theme birthday party...hope this helps...

The party is on Feb 23rd...1 more week to go and tons to do....so will keep u posted!

My Friend Mariela is such a sweetheart and she helped me plan this day - she was my boss ;-)). Everything you see is a joint effort by both of us...Thanks Mari....


Okay - so the party was a success...after many sleepless nights and anxiety attacks. These are some of the highlights...Please feel free to ask me for any DIY...will be more than happy to share!!

Decorations

As the theme was gummy bears i tried to incorporate as much gummys as possible ;-))

I called this Gummy Balls. Aren't they pretty...all made of gummy bear candy. I made red, green, yellow and blue...;-))
