In my defense, April is when Juno had surgery and went into her body cast, and thinking about her birthday party was an escape for me and a reminder that our situation would come to an end.
Maybe the best thing that has come from Juno's journey with HD was this awesome party: Hip Hip Hooray! Get it? Hip Hip Hooray? Because she has hip dysplasia!! After all we've been through this year, I wanted her first birthday party to be a celebration of her triumph over crummy hips.
I had a basic idea of the color scheme I wanted to use, and when I found this adorable dress, that cemented it: chocolate brown, sunshine yellow, cherry red, sky blue, and grass green. The dress came with some awesome striped tights in the same color scheme and then I added the hat just because it was cute.
I got that GIGANTIC green lantern for $8 from Urban Revivals in St. George. Why oh why is that store so far away?? The yellow and blue lanterns were bought for $1 each at Joann's and I made the red and brown pompoms and hung everything with fishing line over Juno's high chair and the food table.
Don't you just love that awesome high chair?? I searched in vain for a wooden high chair at thrift stores, so I borrowed this one from my friend Leah. And it was already the perfect color!
I still have several posts about Juno's party, so I hope you haven't already lost interest!
