Yes it has been an orange and pink explosion in the house for the past few weeks and it just keeps getting larger as we get closer to the big event. MB’s party is only 4 days away. My mom has been in town helping with the final touches which is great. Some where in the planning she offered to make the tissue poms as she remembered making them as a girl scout.
Well she is regretting that offer…I got the tissue paper and just never even started to try one as I figured she would want to do them herself. Well guess they aren’t as easy as she remembers. They have been the task she avoids the most…but we have finished 3 big ones and a little one…I think that will be it for the tissue poms. The ones she did look great…the place is going to be a pink and orange palace for sure.
Stay tuned for more party photos…next up is making the photo booth and props for the girls to show off their glammed up looks.
Ok the final 2 weeks. I have the RSVPs in…we have 14 little girls coming. Wow!!! Glad I have help coming in!
I got my first set of printables from Chickabug!
I know I have said this before but what a dream to work with. The invites were a big success and I love how everything else is turning out. MB is going to just love it. I am doing a lot of prep this week while she is visiting her dad for fall break. I can’t wait to see her face when she gets home and see’s all the things coming together.
I also have found the job for TB. We are going to do a photo booth. With all the spa stuff going on and it being a slumber party…I figured dress up fits right along with that and my little MB is such a camera ham I know the girls will love dressing up with more accessories and posing for the camera man!
I didn’t get out the good camera for a quick shot….but here is a sneak peak a the cuteness!
Next stop is the dollar store for hopefully a cute little tote for the favors and then candy store for finding pink and orange goodies for the candy bar!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
Let the party planning begin. I can’t help but share the cutest invites ever. I worked with Chickabug on the custom design and she rocks as usual!
We are doing a daytime slumber/spa party and it is the funniest party I have ever planned. We are doing orange, MB’s favorite color with pink as well to make sure it is super girly.
Ok that it is on previews….the rest I will hold till the party is over!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )
MB and I are well underway in planning her upcoming birthday (yes in October). In my evenings while watching big brother I have searched the web for inspirations and ideas. It’s a spa/daytime slumber party and of course a primary color must be orange. Such a girly request..love it!.
Just sharing a few of the gorgeous party themes/ideas I am using for inspiration! And I am so excited to be working with Chickabug again on the design!
If anyone has any fun ideas I would love to hear them!!! Though TB is probably going to go ape with all the girly-ness coming his way…so far a good sport only nixed the glitter hairspray for fear of never getting glitter out of the house.
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!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
