A Happy Little Tutu and Some Updates

Phew, this last week really kicked my behind. I spent the majority of it at my parents' house while Jay worked on our living room transformation. Just being gone for that long of a period of time with an 11 month old is time consuming.

The living room looks absolutely wonderful now! Here's a little sneak peek, but keep an eye out for the full transformation in the next week. (We've still got a few loose ends to clean up.)

Since I've been home, I've been working like a mad woman trying to get some of the details for Juliet's birthday party this weekend. Even though I feel like I planned well to get some adorable DIY projects done, it still always seems a little rushed as parties get closer. 

I still can't believe that she will be one this Friday! My baby is just getting too old. 

A big part of what I've been so busy with is her boutique tutu! To be completely honest, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into! But luckily it came out just what I was hoping for and I was able to make it for a fraction of the cost that I would have ordered one. 

If you would like a tutorial for this project check out this one. It's what I used, and I think she does a great job explaining everything.  

Are you interested in a boutique tutu like this one but don't have the time or expertise to make this happen? Shoot me an email at and we can chat about getting one made for you! 

Check back tomorrow and the rest of the week for more party DIYs and birthday festivities. 

What are your favorite DIY projects for birthday parties?
