Polka Dot Party
|Inspiration always comes from something. I found these invitations on clearance and bought them with no idea what I was going to do with them. Love the long green envelopes. Love the color scheme. I went with it. I've said this before-once my mind settles on an idea everything seems to show up in stores.|
|I found these little felt Easter baskets at Target that were perfect. The invitations were from Target, also, but they were at least a year earlier. (Yes, I had the invitations for over a year. Like I said, they were on clearance.) |
Then, my mom used her Cricut machine to make flowers with scrapbook paper that I already had and glued them to bamboo skewers. I believe we put crinkle shredded paper in the bottom of the basket.
|I found these goodie bags at a teacher store, filled them with purple tissue and of course, tied a cute ribbon. We used the Cricut again to make the monogram letters. To make them stickers, we ran them through the Xyron sticker maker. I love this idea for personalizing your child's birthday.|
The piece de resistence! The cake! This was the cutest cake ever! Three tiers of cuteness! And this wasn't the hardest to decorate because it was buttercream icing-not fondant which is hard to work with. I bought a styrofoam M for the topper and stuck brads in it to look like polka dots.
We made the birthday banner with scrapbook paper, vellum, and the Cricut to cut the letters. (Wish I had close-up pics, but this was before the DSLR camera.)
