11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Tinkerbell party IMG HEAVY on: January 22, 2008 09:12:09 PM
This was for my fiancees daughter...

Gift bags with magnetic tag with a poem about tinkerbell and thanking them for coming



bookmarks that i made



makeup bags that i made with lip gloss and nail polish in them



I made this iron on and put it on the backs of white tshirts that everyone signed




wrapped plain pillowcases up and tied them pretty and everyone signed them at the party


I made these cupcakes, the cake was ordered and i made rice krispy treats in the shape of stars and put them on skewers then wrapped them in pink saran wrap





the whole outside of my bf's house was covered with tulle and christmas lights and candles all around so that it would seem magical when you first walked up to the door!!!

It was a great party, hope someone got some ideas!!






12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Mad Tea Party / Alice in Wonderland (image obese) on: January 22, 2008 08:58:24 PM
This was my fiancee's birthday party. thought i'd post some pics in case anyone could use the ideas Smiley




i got a huge teacup flower pot at walmart and made a humongo tea bag out of muslin (the stuffing is actually a travel pillow). I threw all different colored sharpies in the cup and when guests arrived they signed the tea bag. The 'tag' on the bag read 'Happy Birthday Paul'



this was the cake i had made



and this is the crazy cake i made



the food was all crazy and there were little cookies that said 'eat me' on them



this was the table setting. Way in advance i found beautiful but irregular teacups and saucers. I put tons of candy in them and wrapped them with shiny clear wrap and had them at each place seting



there were ceramic teapots all around and i got three decks of playing cards at the dollar store and threw them all over the floor.

I found a blow up pink flamingo at a party store and hung it upside down over the table
pink flamingo cups were sitting all around the table with green and yellow m&m's in them

of course we had to dress up


sooooooo much work went into this but it was absolutely worth it! will post tinkerbell party when i get the chance!

how elaborate are you wanting to go??

You could get some pink fabric and make a cape for the birthday girl or even better for all the guests. Here's a free pattern...super easy to make (though I'd use velcro around the neck for safety reasons) http://www.sewing.org/enthusiast/html/eo_sew_cape.html

I'd probably grab some spiderwebs like the kind used around halloween time and hang them everywhere, then put some christmas lights inside some of the webs (if it's safe!) and have most of the lights off for a cute spidery effect...i guess you could spray paint the spiderweb pink if you wanted too also. A spiderman cd playing in the background would add even more of a special effect.


pink cupcakes with a spider on top would be darling or sugar cookies with a pink spider web.

if your pretty printable savvy you could make some darling pink placemats and laminate them (clear contact paper works great!) then send home with each kiddo.

A small spray bottle of silly string with a cute 'Thanks for swingin' by' and your dd's name below label put on each one would be a cute favor also (large address labels work great for that)

good luck!!!

If you find a sweet chick, stuffed cow or other cute stuffed animal it would be cute to have it sitting by the door with multiple sharpies so that all the guests can sign it. That way your baby has a momento of the even when she gets older Smiley

a cute food would be jello eggs on a big dish of green coconut (grass)

you don't have to be elaborate with a goody bag, even a cookie with a farm shape put into a pretty cellophane bag and a big helium balloon with a thank you tag attached would be awesome to any kid!  simple is sometimes nicer than just a bag of lots of toys that get thrown away...

a little tub of play dough with your own label attached would be a cute going away gift too...and if you could find farm type cookie cutters that'd be darling all wrapped up in a shiny bag Smiley

hope some of that helps Smiley

19  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: "dirty thirty" themed birthday? on: January 17, 2008 07:20:39 PM
a cute parting gift would be a little bottle of bath bubbles (like the ones from bath and body works) with your own printed label that had 'thanks for attending XXXXX's dirty thirty' or something like that.

The oreo dirt cups would be cute around the cake...if it's an adult party you could use the gummy candy available at adult stores....or just the worms if not...

a fun game is to get the 'down and dirty' on the birthday boy/girl. Ask ten questions that no one would probably know to the birthday boy/girl before the party and then ask them to the party participants at the party and have them write the answers down. the person with the most right answers is the winner Smiley

another weird game would be to have little bags full of that moon sand on plates and have your guests mold things with the 'dirt' and the winning design at the end of the party wins...ok, weird but I'd have fun doing it Smiley

chocolate martini's with the rims dipped in cocoa would be super cute....candles all around on dishes of dirt would be weird cool too Smiley

I have both used (for a tiny bit!) and made cloth for my youngest dd. The best pattern in my opinion is the AIO from http://www.darlingdiapers.com  there is a TON of information in the patterns and it's very step by step so even a beginner can do it. Good luck with whatever you decide to do Smiley
