Planning a Party
I love planning parties…but usually it is just once a year for MB’s birthday. With our new life (& friends) in AZ I think that is going to change and I am so excited.
As MB spends the last 2 weeks of summer with her dad I decided when she came back we need to have a neighborhood party to get everyone together before school starts. Remind MB of all her friends that will be joining her as she starts school!
Thanks to some of the fun blogs I follow I got the idea to do a Pool and Ice Cream Social party. Let the planning begin. I am going to try some of the crafty decorations this time versus buying…and Etsy has been such an overwhelming find. I have ideas for so many future parties!
The theme idea came from TomKat Studio. MB’s favorite colors and love the idea. Using their designs for the toppers and labels.
I also have waited for a party to do water bottle labels..and this is it! I am using Chickabug for the labels and a last-minute add of a DIY banner for the Ice Cream Shoppe.
I also found an idea for cute multi-color cupcakes at Martha Stewart and think I am going to do some mini’s that tie to the color theme to go with the ice cream…instead of brownies!
If I was a real pro MB would have an ice-cream bathing suit…maybe next year 🙂
So now I have my list ready of things to go find at Target and Michaels…and maybe the dollar store. The evite has been sent out and already at 11 and counting! MB is going to be so excited and since TB is traveling next week gives me a perfect project for the week to keep me busy at night.
I will post pictures as things start coming together….I could see this becoming an annual end of summer neighborhood party!
