Use What You Have Birthday

We celebrated Elise's birthday with simple touches of color.

Above, grosgrain ribbon tied around old napkins and yard sale notes made into little menu cards.

Simple is best!

I'm just curious what you got for Elise for her birthday. Any special, big gifts? I can't believe she's three, either. I remember you posting when you went into labor and taking a picture of your bags on your old patio...unbelieveable that all that was three years ago! The cards you made look beautiful. Happy Birthday to a lovely little girl!

Found your blog through another blog and have been reading it. I thoroughly enjoy it! My daughter Elise turned 3 today also!!! Happy Birthday Elise!

Hope you had a fun birthday! My little one will be 3 too. Trying to figure out what we're going to do for the party. I'm real big on using items for decor that I already have. Ribbons are great for little girls:-)

I hope you will share more birthday pictures with us. I love birthday celebrations: the cake, the presents, the decorations, the fun! I hope it was a great party and looking forward to seeing more!

Pretty much every party at our house is "use what you have"! Such a very sweet table setting. :)

Very elegant! Happy birthday to your pretty little girl! I like your title, "use what you have." :) The cake looked yummy (your remark about Pepperidge Farm cakes was very funny).

Beautiful! If this is "use what you have" I can't imagine what you would do with "spend all you can"!
