If it’s not obvious already, my mantra has always been to try DIY instead of buying. Last year, I swiped a honeycomb lantern from a party. Craft geek that I am, I deconstructed it. Who would’ve thunk that it was such a simple thing to craft up? Here’s the tutorial for making DIY honeycomb lanterns.
For the last few parties I’ve helped style, the cakes have been topped with these little buntings. It’s festive. It’s too cute for words. With the right type of paper, it’s sure to match any party theme!
I made handwritten bridal bingo cards at my friend’s bridal shower years ago. I was a little disappointed with what I made, that I decided to make printable ones for anyone who searched for one on the web.
What did we do last weekend? We spent Sunday at Livi’s 2nd Birthday Picnic Party! We worked on filling up Sitio Elena with everything picnic-themed. Seeing how happy Livi and her parents were when they walked through the doors was worth everything!
Themed parties are always a thrill to attend. I’ve helped plan a few, and it’s a challenge as much as it is fun. I’m definitely not the expert on party planning, but here are a few tips that have helped me along the way!
Last April, we celebrated the first royal birthday party of my dear goddaughter Nataniella Pierette. (Yes, she has no nickname.) When her Mama Niña called on us to help out with the party, there was no question we’d say yes. I mean, how can you say no to this beautiful little princess?
I spent a huge chunk of my March with these two crazies. Niña choraled us to plan and style her nephew’s 7th birthday party. Bren was really into Disney’s CARS, so coming up with a theme wasn’t a problem.
My holiday season seems to have extended through February. The last few months have been a complete blur, I totally forgot to blog about the Crafty Party Mansy and I helped set up for Meghan’s 16th Birthday!
