Beep’s Tee Pee

I can’t believe it. Beep is almost one year old. Please, stop time! I’ll say this, birthday parties sure have changed since my boys were small. A few friends, family and a Big Bird birthday cake were all we generally had. Today, it’s more of an extravaganza! Beep’s party theme is Boho. Lots of florals, feathers and bling. We even have a special place to hold the gifts. Beep’s Tee Pee!

Once my niece, Laura, had chosen her theme. Her elves, Granny, GT, and Aunt T, got busy helping Mom make the extravaganza happen. We started with these sweet hand made invitations.

Aren’t they sweet?

Sorry, we had to cover up pertinent information!

As the party  planning commenced, the idea came up to have a tee pee for a place to hold all of the gifts.

Cute idea!

So we decided to make one.

I chose a” how to make a toddler tee pee” on Pinterest.

Bought the listed supplies.

Cut out a pattern. ( which was harder than it sounds due to the fact that the measurements were in centimeters not inches!)

A math wizard I am not.

Thank goodness for The Hubs!

Once all of these things were done I began sewing.

And pulling my hair out.

Parts of the pattern were the wrong measurements.

Big time.

If I hadn’t been a sewing person, this would have been a big challenge.

However, once I got through all of the hair pulling, I think it turned out okay!

I’ve set it up today, just to share with you.

The front of the tee pee has multi colored fabrics and a fun “head dress”.

It has velcro ties that release in case Beep wants a little privacy.

Honestly, the head dress is my favorite part of Beep’s tee pee.

It is the epitome of the Boho theme.

Lots of floral, gold and feathers!

One side has a window!

Complete with curtains.

Since it was so white in color, we decide to add a banner using the scraps from all of the other materials.

All I can say is that I am so glad that Beep’s tee pee is done!

I can’t wait to share the entire birthday extravaganza with you.

Because you know we aren’t done.

Yes, we have lost our minds!!!

Until next time….

      Cindy I would have loved that at my first year party too! Times sure have changed for birthday parties that’s for sure.

      Thank you Stacey. Since Beep is probably going to be the only grand of all three sisters, we are having to hold ourselves back. We sure are having fun with her!! You will love having grands for sure.

    Stop it! This is SO dang cute! I should send this to my niece to see. Her baby girl will be 2 this yr and her nursery is all this bobo look, down to even the colors you’ve used. And then she can send it to grandma (my sister), who can pull her hair out constructing and sewing it. 😍 Beep’s gonna love that for many years. She’ll be able to use it for her dolls and other stuffed toys for many uses – tea, camping, hospital…..so many fun things!

      Thanks Rita. We sure are having fun making things and spoiling her that’s for sure. Aww.. a two year old is so much fun! This Boho stuff is all the rage I guess. I’ll bet your nieces nursery is adorable. I’d be happy to send info your sister’s way – especially what not to do! lol
