This is an extreme post...stick around there are lots of goodies to see!
Yay for party decorations!
The party was held both outside and inside. We set up 4 long tables outside on our driveway (which luckily is in the shade all evening) to accommodate roughly 50 people. We also had the kitchen set up as a buffet for people to get their food and drinks, and the dining room was desert/cake/gift central!
For the outdoors I made tissue paper poms in dark pink, light pink and white. My darling husband was kind enough to get the ladder out and hang a long string from one edge of the house, to a tree across the drive way and back to the other edge of the house.
I made mini tissue poms to put on the tables.
I used an ant punch to make "confetti" and I used glue dots to make a trail across the tables. It gave it a picnic-y feel.
I made table cloth weights using clips from the dollar store (5 for $1.00), then I hot glued on flowers (also from the dollar store). They added a perfect touch and served a purpose too.
These cuties were up here and there. You can't tell the size but they are 12 inches across. I love the mega huge ric rac!
I used my cake stand/dome to showcase her tutu she wore for pictures. I sprinkled watermelon seeds around and put a thank you note. This sat on the gift table.
This was our year of pictures gallery in the kitchen.
We strung yarn between two doorways. I mod podged pink scrapbook paper on the clothespins to give it a more finished look.
Formula can center piece. With pictures from her birthday photo shoot.
Beginning of the food buffet. The watermelon bowl was for fruit salad.
Jello using a small hollowed out melon as a mold.
Poor hubby slaving over the hot grill making hamburgers and hotdogs for 50 people.
Cheesy picture of me, but it was the only one I have to show you my favorite food from the evening. We made regular old lemonade and to theme it up I used the watermelon from the fruit salad bowl to make ice-cubes. Just 2 watermelon cubes made plain old lemonade AWESOME!
Sorry for the huge post, but I hope it was inspirational! Tomorrow's line-up is FAVORS!
