American Crafts Homemade With Love Birthday Banner

 Hello friends! Leigh here, to share an easy solution for your Holiday Parties and December Birthdays! You can get an instantly coordinated party easily with the Homemade With Love line of party decor. You can create a cupcake wrapper banner that matches your cupcakes. The cupcake wrappers make it easy to coordinate your baked goods and decorations. 

I made the three banners with American Crafts supplies. The string of lights is from the Poster Shop line, the pom pom trim is made with the We R Memory Keepers pom pom maker, and the tree banner is made with the cupcake wrappers in the Homemade With Love line. This is a quick and easy way to decorate for those December parties and birthdays.

First, make your cupcake wrapper trees. Flatten and fold in half, then fold in half again to get the triangular shape of the tree. Pick wrappers that match your  cupcakes and you will have an easy, coordinated party. Hot glue each layer of the tree to the one below it. Working Mom tip: I used store-bought cupcakes, and took them out of the store wrappers to place them in these cute ones. Easy peasy! 

Embellish the trees with one package of embellishments from Maggie Holmes. I added gold sequins, blue sequin star toppers, and the cute pom pom embellishments to each tree. Attach each tree to a piece of white yarn or a chenille trim to make the banner.

Hang the banner and add the treat toppers to your cupcakes. Now they coordinate! Add your cupcakes on a cake stand, or cupcake stand, to elevate them off the table. Then drop some sequins as table scatter if young kids aren’t able to reach the table top.

I added baked cookies to the treat boxes in case people prefer them over the cupcakes, and you have another set of coordinated party items! You can tie a bow around the treat boxes, or just add any embellishments like the snowflakes I have from the Card Garland by American Crafts. 

Now add all your decor together to create a quick and easy coordinated set of party decor and baked goods! I like the patterns in the Homemade With Love line, because they are versatile and work for any season or party.
