Finally, It's here!!!!
The Lego Star Wars birthday party!
But before you read on, I have to give a huge hug and kiss to my neighbor Megan who came over and offered to help a few hours before the party when I was ready to scream. That girl should have been my other sister!!!!!! Thanks Megan, You rock!!!!!!
I made shirts for the kids and wrapped them around homemade saber swords. The saber swords are made of pvc insulation and were so soft and forgiving during the slaughter in our front yard. Believe it or not, No tears or drama! The kids loved it!!!! I printed the handles on my computer and wrapped them in packing tape so they wouldn't tear.
The table was decorated and unfortunately I didn't get a photo of the final look but here is one end of it.
I made all the party hats and water bottle labels and filled the pinata with legos and candy.
Each child had options to role play with masks that I downloaded from the internet, cut holes for their eyes and added them to sticks. They were a hit, and very inexpensive!
We had mulled spiced wine for the adults as well as hot spiced cider and coffee.... which lets me explain how tickled pink I was to add this little special detail which most guests didn't even notice until they happened to look closely at their cups....
Of course I made the cupcake toppers and ordered the fondant black and lime green 5's here... ClineffsConfections
The kids left with the favor boxes I made. Inside were lego crayons with coloring pages, candy bags, luggage tags, and "You build it" lego kits that I also made.
The party began at 1pm and ended around 9pm with my best friends staying to help clean up!!!! Love you Jill Pill!
The hubs and I are now sitting among the aftermath with sighs. It was a great day with some great friends!!!!!
We are sooooo blessed!
So,I'm in the process of having my little guy's birthday on sunday and met another person doing the same thing a week later, She liked my "You build it!" Lego kits and had me make her some too. I'll be offering these in my shop beginning December 1st :)
The little bug's birthday party is almost here. I've been creating like crazy. Here is the first banner and the pinata which I filled with legos and treats. One week to go so stay tuned.
I have made tons of water bottle labels. I've never sold any...go figure. Hmmmm.... now that's a thought when I get back. Through the years my labels have been more on the simplicity side. I do love a modern look but along come kids and all that goes out the window.
So here's some of my water bottles through the years.
I just finished getting ready for the boutique. I have a new label for my shop and created 40 new sets of cupcake toppers for birthdays, showers and the holidays. They will be available shortly in my shops.
I took this old vintage planter that my mom was getting rid of and turned it into the ultimate display stand. It is very portable and holds 50 sets of cupcake toppers. And it was free.....SCORE!
The boutique opens on Saturday, I can't wait to see what everyone else is creating. I love crafty women :)
These seem to be my most popular favor bag to date. I am participating in a Christmas boutique and just finished a ton of new items that will be hitting my shops shortly. Previews to follow.
Here are some of the orders I sent out in the last few days. I'm playing catch up on loading them up.
