It is no secret that I have two little girls that I love more than anything.
My oldest girl just turned two in January, and I was trying to come up with a little tradition, something that we could do at every birthday for her and her sister, something that would be fun but also inspiring for them. And this is what I came up with, the “when she grows up…” birthday poster:
I drew a big frame on some paper, added some speech bubbles to it, and everybody that came to the party could write what they think Olivia would be/do/love when she grows up. I also emailed our families in Denmark and France ahead of time, and added what they sent me so that they could also be part of it. Hopefully these will inspire her to dream big. My plan is to keep these posters every year, and give them to her at some point. I also decided to take a picture of her in front of the poster every year so that we can see how she changes. And how the things people dream for her also change as we get to know her.
Here are a few more pics from a party, as you can see we had a little “dots” theme I made most of the decorations (garlands, party favors, cake decorations) using little felt balls from Handbehg FELTS. She has some fun color combinations, I used the Cirque Mix, love the colors!
