Today I am going to share a few little projects I did to make the house feel extra special on Zadie's big day.
She stayed with her grandparents the night before the party so I wanted the house to really make her excited from the minute she opened the door.
Since the theme of the party was "A Few of Zadie's Favorite Things"
we HAD to decorate with balloons because they are definitely a favorite of my baby girl.
I just picked up a helium tank at Target add blew up as many pink and blue balloons as I could.
We also used a few outside to make the house a little easier to spot.
I made a simple pendant banner to go over the food table and covered wall behind/ beside with pink streamers in a hombre design.
I used this tutorial to make the hot pink tissue paper pom-poms.
I hung them from the ceiling all over the room with the food and in a cluster above the drinks table. (first picture)
The cupcakes were decorated with a mini pendant banner hung from bakers twin and skewers.
I placed the party favors around the cupcake stand for a little extra color.
To make these I simple painted the lids of clean baby food jars, added some gumballs, and tied a sweet pink ribbon around the top.
I wanted to use Mason jars SO BAD for the kids drinks but I didn't think glass cups would mix too well at a two year old's party.
All I could find at the store were cups with zoo animals all over them, that did not quite match the look I was going for so I covered those bad boys up.
I got the pattern for the cups by tearing one apart, laying it down flat on a piece of paper,and sketching the design.
A piece of scrapbook paper cut by the pattern and glued to the cup did the trick.
Adding the blue straws was the perfect touch to round out the color theme.
The kids (or parents) wrote their name on the cups with a sharpy.
It worked out perfectly!
Well guys, if you are getting tired of the party post I totally understand.
I will be back very soon to the regularly scheduled programming ;)
There are only two more party posts to go...
Next up: the food and games.
Lots of love
linking to these great parties!
