My baby turned 1 today! I can hardly believe it. Her little party turned out so cute. I decided against the fondant cake and went with cupcakes instead. I made the crown cupcake toppers myself along with her invitations. I went to Scrapbooks Etc. to cut out the crowns and 1's. I also used their paper cutter and corner punches. Some bling was in order so I used pink swarovski crystals on the top of the crown and iridescent swarovski crystals on the bottom of the crown and on the corners of the invite. I wish I had nicer writing so I could have hand written them, but I don't, so I used Microsoft Word to write out what I wanted them to say and printed them on card stock from home. I went ahead and made the chocolate and sprinkled covered pretzels and large marshmallows that I put in pretty pink glasses. They were delish and looked even cuter on the table. I found some pink star suckers on long plastic sticks that looked like princess wands. I had a lot of fun planning and Hayden was the perfect birthday girl. The night before her party I made her a little cupcake birthday outfit. I'll have to take pictures of it since you can't really tell from the pictures. Basically I used cupcake fabric and made an elastic waistband skirt and made a ruffle with the same fabric and sewed it to her onesie. Since she pulls out most of her clips, I glued pink swarovski crystals to a tiny alligator clip with teeth to match her outfit and keep the hair out of her face. She kept it in the whole party :) Overall the evening was a success. It was so fun having my mom, brother, and sister inlaw in town! They were a HUGE help :)
I'm Katie! Thanks for visiting my blog! I was inspired to create MiaMoo Designs in honor of my daughter, Mia. This has been such a fun journey! I started MiaMoo Designs 7 years ago and was mostly selling flower clips and burp cloths. I slowly began incorporating dresses, skirts and other hair accessories and turned this blog into more of a craft blog where I could post all my projects, tutorials, etc. I've been making chunky beaded necklaces for about 6 years and I think I finally found my niche! They have really taken off :) I LOVE beads and designing new necklaces to go with various clothing lines and special outfits for my clients. I really enjoy custom orders because they continue to help me think outside the box. Both my daughters 9yrs. and 6yrs. wear my necklaces and feel so glamorous especially with all the compliments they get from people when we're out! MiaMoo Designs necklaces are so unique and will make any little girl feel special. To order, leave me a comment at the bottom of the blog post you are interested in, or go to my big cartel shop to see what is already pre-made (link is at the top right of my blog). You can also find me on Facebook! Thanks! Can't wait to work with you :)
Just a Side Note:
I use swarovski crystals on my accessories--Please keep in mind they do not always photograph well due to the way they pick up light. In person they are VERY sparkly :) If you have any questions regarding the color of the rhinestones used please feel free to leave me a comment!
