Panda Birthday Party

What a beautiful day to celebrate Sierra's first birthday! We had a wonderful panda party, and feel so blessed by all the friends that came to celebrate with us! As I was planning, I had a lot of trouble finding panda birthday ideas, so I will share with you whatever ideas I found. I used my Cricut to do the birthday banner, and THIS tutorial from Candy and Cake to do the tissue paper pom pom. (I even used old wrinkled used tissue paper, and it turned out cute; who knew it was so easy!!) There were pictures, pictures everywhere! I found the black metal "S" for $0.30 at Michael's, got the fabric from JoAnn's, and the plates/ utensils from Dollar tree. I found this adorable paper doll, "Clementina," with her panda costume and other paper doll costumes from How About Orange. The Hello Kitty panda boxes were from Target in the dollar section. The panda crackers came from Muffin Tin Momma... what a fun idea to find! You can check hers out HERE. The panda cupcakes I just made up as I went. (I also found some cute rice ball pandas, and even panda bread, but it looked like WAY too much work!
For our craft, we did panda faces with pom poms and googly eyes from Dollar Tree, and circles and ovals cut with the Cricut. We also had a panda maze you can find here, a panda fact sheet/ coloring page from Enchanted Learning, and a Tollee the Koala bear from Kai Lan wearing his panda shirt and panda slippers from Nick Jr.
The birthday girl...
