{diy happy birthday banner}

Over the weekend, we celebrated our good friend's 25th birthday by attending a sit down dinner party at her place for 22 people!  A couple weeks before the party we made some crafts to go along with her color scheme which was green, white and gold.  And of course, no birthday party is complete without some sort of "Happy Birthday" banner.  To make this one we used green and white crepe paper as well as some card stock and gold ribbon.  We simply followed the same process I used for my bridesmaid ribbon medallions (tutorial here).  I am really happy with the result and surprised at how easy the crepe paper was to use in this project.

  1. Such a cute idea! I don't know if I'd have the patience for that. The wine would be a must.


  2. You two look beautiful! Love the craft and your dresses!

  3. Love the banner and love the blog! Stop by for a blogger award! Cheers! Ana

  4. fabulous! and um die over both dresses!

  5. oh my goodness! where is that gold dress from, if you don't mind asking your friend?

  6. @Angela-

    The gold sequin dress is actually my own dress that I let the birthday girl borrow! I found it on ebay by searching "gold sequin long sleeve" and there it was! It is some random designer from the UK, but you can find really similar ones on or

    Good luck in your search!
