Today is #FlashbackFridays, and as it is almost our beloved blog’s 5th birthday, we are thinking back on all of the birthday related projects we have had and written about over the past five years. For today’s post, we decided to share the “favorite five” with all of you. In order to determine what five photos have gotten the most “likes”, we went back and looked through our Pinterest boards. We were excited by what we found:

#5: As seen in our post, Mika’s 1st Birthday Party – This post brought us back to some of our earliest events. Gotta love the tissue paper poms and this 1 year old birthday’s all girly decor. We love a good backyard birthday party!

#4: As seen in our post, A 60th Birthday Party – Another “oldie but goodie”! In addition to these awesome strands of tiny ombre poms we created gorgeous floral arrangements with burlap wraps and decorated with lots of purple butterflies. Turning 60 is oh-so-fun!

#3: As seen in our post, Birthday Party Treats – These cupcake cones were made for our blog’s first birthday party. They were absolutely delicious with their frosted sprinkle outside and hot pink surprise inside. What better way is there to celebrate 1 whole year of blogging?

#2: As seen in our post, Wrap With Scraps: Baby Edition – A baby’s “birth” day is equally important to celebrate. This all white butterfly tag was created to accompany a beautifully wrapped gift for a baby shower we attended.

… and the #1 most pinned pic: As seen in our post, A 50th Birthday Party – This is still one of our favorite party decors we have created so far. The silk linens were the perfect shade of Tiffany blue, the floral arrangements were stunning, and the birthday girl’s photos were everywhere! 50 is fabulous!

As we mentioned, this Monday, we will be celebrating five years of sharing what we love most; creating, coordinating, and collaborating. Please plan to celebrate with us! Do something you love to do, be creative, eat some delicious birthday cake … and have a great weekend from Side by Side Design!
