Party Animal!

Ok, I confess I just love to throw parties, especially birthday parties. I think most of my friends think I'm nuts because every year my kids have a huge birthday bash. I have kicked around the idea of throwing parties for other people someday, but for now I think I'll have to stick with my family.

This year my daughter turned 3, and she wanted a pink party. She is completely obsessed with anything and everything pink. (You can check out her invitation in my etsy shop, it's the cutsom birthday invite lesson... the sample is pink :). So here are a few pictures of the party decorations I made. The nice thing about these is that now that the party is over they double as decorations for her room.

These are some "party hats" I made for the party. I covered styrophoam cones and then embellished them with all kinds of pink and sparkly goodies. They look so cute sitting on her bedroom shelf now.





I also made this cute little banner for the party, now it hangs on her bedroom wall. I just love banners. I have made for each party this year and a few holiday ones too. I would love to get some in the shop if anyone is interested. I could do some kits or special orders too. (even the oreos are pink! LOL)




Ok, have I mentioned how much I love to make and decorate cupcakes? Well I do! I am always on the look out for cute toppers too. You should check out the ones on etsy. So cute and handmade. Try www.JeanKnee.etsy.com, she has some adorable ones! Can't wait to get me some! You can also check my favorites in the shop, I have several of her goodies marked there!

So anyway... if any of you love to plan parties too I'd love to hear about the creative things you've done, so leave a post! I've also been thinking about putting some custom birthday packages in the shop. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Speaking of birthdays, we got the cutest invitation to a friends party the other day so I thought I'd share the idea!

Too cute! My friend Jami is so crafty.

I would love to see banner kits in the shop! I make them for all of our parties too. The latest was "A Very Merry Unbirthday" for my Alice-themed 30th birthday party!
