    I make a new "custom" paper banner each year for my son's birthday, but it takes so much time! I'd rather save my energy for other little touches and have a CUTE and reusable one!

    These are absolutely precious!! My son has a birthday coming up and while we don't really have the funds, I want to make this his BEST birthday ever!! My son will be turning 5 and my husband, his daddy, has been gone for 22 months – recently coming home this past September. My son doesn't remember a birthday party with "daddy" there, so I want to make this one super special – and this would absolutely add some memorable pizzazz!! Too cute! Thanks for the chance!! :)

    HI Kara,

    My daughter, Amy, will celebrate her 10th birthday in April. With two older brothers who both play many sports (hockey, football, basketball among them) Amy often has to tag along to varioius sporting events. Her "girly girl" time is limited so I always try to make her birthday "girlie-ish." I KNOW she would be thrilled to see this banner across the window in front of her breakfast chair on her birthday morning. I also think, though they will ADAMANTLY deny it, that her brothers would be envious of such a great birthday reminder! Who knows, she might just share it for her brothers' birthdays. lol

  255. Party-ific says:

    Hi Kara,
    I love your blog it has inspired me to start my own party blog! I posted about your giveaway. Good luck everyone

    I've been looking for a theme for my daughter's first birthday, and as her name (Valentina) was chosen in a Cirque du Soleil event that I went, I thought a circus party would be perfect! Also, as we're from Brazil, the theme would match perfectly!
    I've seen searching online for ideas and I really love your site, such interesting insights!
    I'd love to incorporate this banner to her party, it would be great!
