There is something I love about creating events for children under two. Maybe it's the excitement of the first of many parties to come or the amount of people who clear their calendars to spend this special day with your little cutie. For me it may just be that it's the only birthday a child will let you choose the theme without getting upset. That opens the doors to creating something different, fun and wonderful. Of course at Itty Bitty we never throw your typical children's event with paper plates and plastic tablecloths, so you can always expect an elevated design based on whatever your child chooses. However, I do love this One Year Olds "1940's Bathing Beauties Pool Party" birthday we created a little while back.

I stumbled upon this photo today on Pinterest and of course had to make a few. They are extremely easy and keeps me wanting for the summer- Ice Cream Cone Balloons!!!
Step 1- Choose paper or already made bamboo cones (sold at www.jbprince.com)
Step 2- Find the perfect balloons, water balloons have the right shape (sold at www.Amazon.com) and fill with helium.
Step 3- Choose a nice string or thin ribbon, multi colored yarn string (sold at Michaels) is my favorite.
Step 4- Tie yarn around balloon tie.
Step 5- Make small hole at the bottom of cone.
Step 6- Pull yarn through cone and make knot just under cone point.
Your Ice Cream Balloons are ready to fly!! My daughter and I had fun adding flowers on top as the cherry and we also adorned the cone with fancy bows but it's really up to you, so get creative!!
