I had a color palette I worked from, with a few slight modifications. :D
Here's my list of party supplies:
Hanging Tissue Paper Flowers and Lanterns
Mason Jars for drinking glasses and lights
(already had those on hand!)
With lids and pink-and-white striped straws.
And I found those at JustArtifacts.com!
If I were a proper blogger I'd be getting some kind of compensation for telling you about this website, but nope, I am just sharing a great resource with you because I'm nice like that. :D
So here's what it looked like!
We decorated our carport with the tissue paper flowers and lanterns and set up tables all around for the guests to sit at and enjoy the party food. Later we cleared them out of the way for the games. :)
The Lemonade Stand! :) My dad helped me make this a cute photo booth! We used scrap wood we already had, a plastic folding table, a plastic tablecloth and chalk from the dollar store. :)
Already having fun serving ourselves some yummy punch and strawberry lemonade!
Any idea as to how many there are? Oh all right - there were 224 beads! The closest guess was 235 and the guesser won a prize of a big box of starburst candy. :D
The photo booth was really cute. The backdrop is a vintage sheet I found for $5 at a little shop in town, and the photo props I found on sale at Hobby Lobby and customized myself. :)
The strawberry lemonade and the fizzy peach-lime-kiwi punch were a big hit!
Mama and Mark helped light all my two-dozen candles and then I blew them out in one breath. :D
Besides the cake, we also served:
- Mini Quiches
- Lunch Meat & Cheese platter, and bread & sandwich condiments
- Pasta Salad with cherry tomatoes
It was all very tasty! :) I was having so much fun that I didn't take as many pictures as I should have, but the memories will last forever all the same. :)
Hope you enjoyed that little glimpse! Do you have any plans for parties coming up this year?
