Hi everyone, Nancy here today to share with you some fun birthday party decorations I made using the All Boy kit from Hydrangea Hippo.  When I received the kit I knew I wanted to make some party decorations for a good friends grandson.  As with many boys his age he loves all things space so I knew he would love these.

I made a fun party banner using the journal pages and lots of the super fun embellishments that were in the kit.  The ribbons in the kit tied it all together and we were ready to blast off.

Pinwheels are always fun for little ones and these were so colorful and easy to make.  I know the birthday party guests will have a blast blowing them and watching them spin.

What child doesn't love cupcakes?  These cupcake toppers really dressed up the store bought cupcakes, making them party ready.

 Finally I made a sweet little bag to hold a special gift for the birthday boy.

Other than the straws for the pinwheels, the toothpicks for the cupcakes and a little glue, everything I used was included in the kit.  

I even have a bit of supplies to make a scrapbook page that I will be back to share later this month.

Hope you are having a great day.
