Themes like a good party

Today’s Post is in honor of my sweet daughter Lilly. She turns 12 today! This year her party is at a bowling alley. Hence the theme. Really you’d be surprised on how much a theme can really add to your party. A theme can be anything, a number, a color or a hobby. Any theme is a good one. Just pick one and run with it! Take it to new levels. Everything from the food, decor and invite should all relate to your theme. Get creative with the invite, it’s a sneak peek of your party. Always send a paper invite!!! I know you think I say that because I’m in the biz, but honestly how much more fun is it to open an actual invite? My girls especially love getting things in the mail.

So back to the bowling theme…I created these fun origami bowling shirt invites for the occasion. I think the perfect compliment to these invites would be these awesome cookies find them here or Here
If I’m feeling ambitious enough I may try to tackle my own version of these cookies. To be continued…

Flashback Friday!

Hello world – I’m using my Friday’s posts to feature some past projects that I love. I say this like I post everyday, which I don’t but would love to. Baby steps people. I’m working on it! And maybe someday you will check my blog on a daily basis for great ideas and cuteness. Can’t wait until we’re besties! Anyway…

This particular project was done for one of my favorite girls – my daughter Sophie. Last year for her birthday we did a movie theme birthday party for her. We saw TOY STORY 3 – in 3D.

So I designed some cute invites that looked like old school tickets coming out of a popcorn bag.

We did popcorn bags for treat bags. We filled them with all the concession stand classics. I found the popcorn bags at the dollar store, SCORE!

I also found these cute popcorn cupcakes to make. Where would you find such cute cupcakes to make you ask? Martha Stewart, duh right? I personalized the wraps with Sophie’s name.

I must say, overall the party was a great success and super a•dor•a•ble.

If you like this idea or would like me to personalize you party invites and paper accesories email me to order
