August is the beginning of Birthday season in our house. Everyone, bar myself has their birthday in either August or October. So we began with Jasmine who turned 8 on the 1st. This year I (crazily) promised her a party at home and then proceeded to get a little carried away with the planning and decorating. I have to say though that I totally enjoyed it all and not only made all of the decorations, but also made my very first cake pops and decorated cookies! Jasmine wanted her party to be a “crafty party” so I also prepared some activities for the girls, they made candle votives, door hangers and money boxes. We picked three colours to carry over from invitation to decorations – Rose Red, Baja Breeze and Perfect Plum.
Party invitation went with the “crafty party theme” courtesy of Tote-ally Tess stamp set.
Then for the decorations it was butterflies galore! (look at the end of the post for a list of supplies used)
you can click on the thumbnails above for a better look. There’s decorated bubbles bottles, cupcake toppers (handpainted with Shimmer paint), cake pops with decorated stand,
my first ever decorated cookies, mini milk bottles with decorated paper straws, some of my paper pom poms and “Jasmine” Banner. We also had lots of little party foods with butterfly placecards.
It’s hard to believe that Jasmine’s 8 already! My little tornado child who walked at 9 months and proceeded to get into as much trouble as possible.
Well now you can see what I’ve been up to lately! And to think I get to do it all again at the end of the month with an Owl theme this time! (and not to mention my dear hubby’s birthday before then!)
