It's a Party!


This weekend was my sister's birthday, and I just wanted to invite you to join me for a little peek into the party decor I created.
This is a collage photo to give you a better feel for the whole party atmosphere. I used DCWV's Lemon Flower Stack, and repeating elements (Judy's Blooms) to create continuity throughout my decor.
Every party has to start with an invitation. I used flowers created with Cheery Lynn Designs Judy's Blooms. My sentiment layer is framed with the French Lattice Large. Behind that layer is the Oval Doliy Stacker One. A scalloped border was added along the bottom patterned paper panel using the Tiffany Border.
For my cupcake tower, I created pennant flags for the toppers, and one showy rosette for the top cupcake. I bought lollipop sticks from the baking section of a craft store, and used those to glue the toppers. On the pennants, I used the Cheery Lynn Designs Pennant Die and cut it apart, leaving pairs of triangles. Then, I folded the pair in half, over the lollipop stick, and glued the two sides together. This made my decoration cute from either side. I used the Miniature rose and a pearl to finish each one off. The top rosette was embellished with a flower and greenery from Judy's Blooms and the Mini Fanciful Flourish.
My chalkboard was so easy to make! I took a wooden frame, and covered it with my patterned paper, and then used the DCWV All Chalked Up paper, and just glued it into the opening. I added more Judy's Blooms flowers, and the Pair of Ferns for my greenery.
A couple of years ago, I bought a party centerpiece from Target, that coordinated with their current line of paper plates. It was so easy to transform this "vase" to match my new decor, by just covering the pieces with my patterned paper, adding some May Arts ribbon, and more Judy's Blooms flowers and leaves.
My placesetting was finished off with a placemat from the Mega Tea Party Die and napkin rings made with the Judy's Blooms.

I hope I have given you some inspiration on new ways to use some of your favorite dies! If you throw a party, don't forget to invite me!
