This countdown started with this post
Baby 1st Bday Countdown HAS BEGUN!!!!

And you can check out all the posts so far here...

So, I have said before, I will not throw a bday party ( I have several reasons the main one being I don’t have the money to do it) but that doesn’t mean I don’t get to decorate and have a cake to sing happy bday to my little boy! He deserves that and more, but since that is all I can afford right now… anyways here I was thinking well I suck at doing manual stuff and I don’t have money to buy decorations what to do? And of course Pinterest comes to help as always!

But first let me introduce to you the...

Lottie Dottie Chicken

at least is not baby shark

The project Lottie Dottie Chicken (originally named Galinha Pintadinha in portuguese) began on YouTube in 2006.
This first video clip took on the IP name Galinha Pintadinha and chose the Lottie Dottie Chicken to be the main character. The Lottie Dottie Chicken is the star of the video clips, and other colorful characters make an appearance as well, such as Lil Butterfly, Little Yellow Chickadee, Purple Rooster and Ms. Connie Cockroach.

My baby doesn’t like tv that much, but OMG he loves his Lottie Dottie Chicken!! And yes I am one of does moms that lets his kid have some screen time fite me!!!

And well for his first bday I was wondering what to use as inspiration for the cake and decorations, he really isn’t much into tv or any particular toy, but his dad had the brilliant idea Lets make it about the Lottie Dottie Chicken!! and well here we are!

Ideas for the Cake!

To me the cake is the more important thing since is the one I think my baby will enjoy the most (he looooves to eat sweets so, I don't have a doubt he will eat his cake) and I don’t want it just to be pretty, I want it to be really yummy too, my sister will be gifting it she will send me the money to pay for it since we are having it made by this awesome people that makes the most yummy cakes in town they are call @exquisiteces_wavs on Instagram.

The cake will be 2 Kg and it would 3 floors one of the Lottie Dottie Chicken, one Yellow Chickadee, and last but not least the Purple Rooster, they are the family and starts of the show.

The cake will come with 50 cookies and 30 cupcakes all costing 30$ and thank god they are a gift because that allows me to save money to do the decorations!!

The Decorations!

Ok so here is my dream…


I know I probably won’t have the money or the skills to pull that one up but hey I am going to try!!

First, I need to get me some balloons! I have already look for them they cost 2$ a package and I would need 3 (one blue, one yellow and one purple) and for the pictures I would have to come up with good all fashion picture prints, I will make the baby’s daddy print those at his job and so that would be free!

I seriously think the balloons will help a lot, I’m not sure what else to do, but will try to pull this up or at least make a pretty decent table to put the cake on!
