I decided early on that I wanted to make a tradition for Grady on his birthday mornings with a little surprise waiting for him when he wakes up. I bought this cart a few months back, and as soon as I bought the cart, I had this vision for Grady’s morning surprise.
I had way too much fun pulling this together, and it pretty much is exactly what I envisioned from the beginning. I love that it was a great way to display his gifts and show him that this was a special day all about him.
I stacked donuts on a cake stand and had lots of little party animals overlooking the scene. With lots of balloons blown up on the ground for G to play with, we sat around and enjoyed the morning while he opened his gifts and we nibbled on breakfast. What a wonderful way to start such a special day!
The Birthday Hat and tassels along the side were handmade by my super talented mom!
Bar Cart (a bit smaller than most carts out there, but it works nicely for decoration and events!)
Party Animals – I had a hard time finding all the animals in this amazing party hat tutorial but I ended up pulling them from Target and Michaels. The best ones (and the ones in the tutorial are Terra animals)
Cake Stand — My mom had had this for years, but a similar style is here
