Last weekend we hosted her birthday party in a green area near our home – the theme was a picnic in the park. At first the weather was pretty hot, but then the clouds rolled in along with a nice breeze and it was the perfect afternoon with friends!
Setting up wasn’t easy, but with some help from Ashley we were able to pull it off.
What I designed and made:
-Cupcake and cake toppers
-Snack bags and signs
For the snack bags I used coordinating tape on the bags as a way of identifying what was what. This seemed to work well and brought in the patterns from the banner. I also made the flowers used to decorate the box with the snacks.
And of course we had a drinks table – this included Peach Margaritas (big hit), Sangria (so so), keg and soda/water, which was in the wheel barrow. I made the letters for the jars out of vinyl and they were easily removed the next day when I cleaned them out.
The happy birthday sign was burlap with patterned tape used on the edges. I fell in love with the patterns and colors and really liked how it all came together. Another finishing touch was adding bows between each letter – it was a small detail but made a big change.
The cake and cupcakes were decorated with tissue flowers and ones in the matching tape. I was so happy with how these turned out. I made all of the decorations and the cupcakes were from Target and cake was from Harris Teeter.
