Can you believe our sweet grandbaby is a year old already? With our youngest being 10 now, you almost forget how fast that first year goes. But, she turned one on Christmas Eve and we, of course, had to celebrate it well!
After much deliberation, my daughter finally decided on a theme: Winter ONEderland. She perused Pinterest while I jumped on Cricut Design Space.
I was ready to make ALL THE THINGS for the birthday party just so I could use my Cricut Explore Air 2 some more. Having just made Jaden’s Sweet Sixteen banner, I was ready for more crafting!
We started easy enough by making a similar banner for Riley as well. It simply said, “Riley is One” and accompanied a balloon banner Chey has picked up on sale weeks before.
Chey wanted to keep the fonts simple, so I used Cricut Sans for a basic san serif font and changed the size based on the need.
Of course, we needed the obligatory “ONE” highchair banner as well. Using Cricut White Cardstock, this one required only one extra step.
I grabbed Cricut Party Foil in silver with the intention of cutting out snowflakes for the party. When Chey saw it, she loved the holographic, shiny look of the foil, so we added it to the highchair banner.
We simply cut the same letters out using the party foil, then used a spray adhesive to attach them to the cardstock. Then it was hot glue and twine again before hanging on the highchair.
Finally, in addition to the two banners mentioned above, we also wanted to have the cake topper match.
I resized the letters smaller and cut them out of Cricut Glitter Cardstock. It was then time to hot glue each letter to another piece of twine before tying the twine to wooden skewers topped with foam pom poms.
It took less than 15 minutes to complete and blended in with the rest of our Winter ONEderland theme perfectly!
Considering the birthday party was really about celebrating Riley, we loved that the party decor was simple, yet elegant.
Everyone loved the table display and, well, Riley loved her first taste of birthday cake. I call that a win-win!

Using Cricut, this one design can make a big impression on a highchair, wall display, or cake topper.
