I sit here on a lazy Sunday afternoon, watching the brightness of the sun slowly give way to the darkness of the night. In comfy sweats, with a warm cup of tea to my left and my babies to my right, watching an old movie on TV. Sunday in all its glory...
I mentioned in previous posts that I have been helping my sister with my niece's birthday party and today I wanted to show you a few of the details. This was definitely a group effort as the women in our family came together with our different talents to create, in my humble opinion, a most beautiful magical party for a sweet little 6 year old...
Her cakes are not only beautiful to look at
but also taste delicious (gracias, Mami)
My sister and I have similar taste and we compliment
each other very well. She has great attention to detail.
She also sewed some ruffled
crepe streamers together...
My dad found these cute little bottles at Walmart. They contained pear nectar, which thankfully tasted good since we had to drink about 36 of them. My sister created and printed the sweet little labels which she attached on top of a doily. So sweet...
Some water bottles covered with some of the beautiful Crafty Secret Paper.
My sister made some Popcorn cones embellished with a doily and pretty cupcake wrapper paper (shown here).
Even Cinderella made an appearance to the party....
A beautiful rose kissing ball to accompany the
many, many tissue pompoms my sisters made...
And more sweetness inWe made a sweet canopy using a hula hoop some white plastic table cloths, tulle and ribbon. We decorated it with butterflies and a sweet white dove. We used the canopy as a photo booth, not only was the light perfect for pictures, but it also provided a perfect background...
the form of cupcakes...
the form of cupcakes...
We used a lot of items we already had at home and most of our supplies and decorations came from the Dollar Store, including the little bottles of bubbles you see in the white, carved wooden box...
The colours were inspired by this beautiful scrap paper printed from the Crafty Secrets CD. The CD has over 92 coloured and black and white designs to choose from, but these fit perfectly with our theme.
I can't wait to share some more of this very creative new product...say perhaps a giveway?
Thank you so much for your company today.
Wishing you a wonderful week!
