As I looked through my past blog posts, I realized I had not yet completed a post for my granddaughter Lúthien Luna's 1st birthday party held in late January. Her party was just 7 weeks after my granddaughter Olive's 1st birthday and we wanted a completely different party theme and color scheme.
When I saw this balloon in October, I loved it and it became my inspiration for the party. I purchased the balloon months ahead of time and took it back for filling the day before the party. It was a "hippie chic" theme with birds, butterflies, owls, and peace signs. We selected the turquoise, green, and brown for our main colors from the balloon.

It's easy to make your own "flags" for cupcakes using toothpicks and cut shapes - these were bamboo picks - a bit more fancy than regular toothpicks.
