>Shabby Chic Fairy Party- Happy Customer’s Photos

30 Jul

>I am so excited to share this party with all of you… Pam from Party Starters ordered the Fairies StixNpops for her daughter’s Aly’s Birthday.


Pam planned a Shabby Chic Fairy party, and you see how every detail ties with the theme. Just by looking at the pictures you might think she spent a lot… but can you tell that she did it for under $100? that’s smart Party Planning! Love it!! I am all in for Great and Fabulous Parties without hurting the wallet… some of the things she did to cut expenses for this Fabulous Party were: 

  • Recycle/Reuse: She used a window box she already had, and glassware she already owned.
  • Buy Second hand: Many of the platters, vases, containers she bought at at a Second hand store at an incredible price.
  • DIY: she did the majority of the decorations: Banners, fairy boxes, cupcake wrappers, fairy cupcake picks, butterfly straw decorations, food and drinks.
  • Get help from family and friends: She got help  from relatives to bake the cupcakes, help with face Painting, making the crafts, and taking photos!



I call this a Super Fabulous Party… Is just breathtaking! because every detail was so carefully planned…like the elegant muted colors: so chic… the activities: fun for all the guests, the price tag: just right!

Our Fairy StixNpops Personalizaed with the number 5 and custom made with all the 
Colors used in the party: soft pink, white, lime green and teal…so chic, romantic, cute…

You can feel the love in the air, when the family works together in a project, it gets closer and grow even bigger memories!!!

Great job Pam! can’t wait to see more of your Parties!

>Creative Ideas- Vintage Ribbon Backdrop

28 Jul

>

What a creative way to decorate your main table’s backdrop! I found this Ribbon Backdrop DIY project at Amy Atlas 

You can customize it with all your Party colors, it’s not only a way to add color to you party but layers of texture and layers of fun!

In order to create this backdrop, assemble a pvc frame that fits the dimensions of your table (alternatively you can cut a large piece of foam core that fit the dimensions of your table). Cover the pvc frame or backdrop with sewn channels of white fabric to soften the look of the pipe in case it happens to peek through the draped backdrop. Rip fabric into long strips (width should be according to how thick you want your strips to be). Hang strips over the top of the frame, attaching them with a simple safety pin on the backside. Cut long pieces of lace trim and ribbons and add these strips in the gaps between the fabric strips using the same safety pin method. Continue to layer strips of fabric, ribbon, and lace until you achieve the desired look. If you wish, create a personalized bunting (Blair created a bunting using doilies, twine, and clothespins) and attach the bunting to the backdrop with pins.
