Where did you get the banners made? I'm looking to do something like that for behind the table at my sons 1st bday party. TIA.

Hi! I created the artwork for the banners myself and then had a local printer produce them with grommet holes for hanging. I will be happy to share the artwork with you, if you like :)

That would be awesome if you could do that. So do I just call around to find a printer who can make it into a banner?

Yes, that's what I did. To keep the banners from swinging and knocking things off the table, you can use removable adhesive strips (like Command) to stick the banner to the table/tablecloth. Here is the artwork: Good luck with your party! :)

Hi! I am also doing a VHC party for my son's 1st birthday. I love your theme so much! How did you make the "cherry pie" cupcakes? Also, is that ice cream in the cones or did you use something else to get the same look?

Hi, Stephanie! I wish I could take credit for these desserts but they were actually made by my sister's BFFs. This is what they shared with me: The cherry cupcakes are actually chocolate cupcakes with the tops flattened. Canned cherry pie filling and a few cherries are on top and buttercream was used for the "pie crust" and the hatch pattern. The "ice cream" is actually a cupcake that was baked with the bater in the cone. Once cooled they were topped with a large scoop of pink buttercream to look like ice cream. They had a little "magic shell" type topping drizzled on top (do not recommen - waste of time), and then were sprinkled with multi-colored jimmies and topped with a red m&m to look like a cherry. Hope all this helps and best of luck with your party! :)

Would you be able to change wording on a banner to customize for me? I love them!
