5M Creations

Summer may be coming to an end soon, but I still have some summer parties to share with you. None of my kids have summer birthdays but luckily we get to live vicariously through several friends who throw fun water themed outdoor parties. There is nothing better on a hot day than a bunch of kids in swimsuits squealing and running through water. My friend’s daughter wanted a dolphin party this year. She put together this darling Under the Sea set up.

Varying shades of blue streamers and tissue poms created a wavy ocean backdrop to her dessert table.

 

Printable cupcake toppers featured cute dolphins and seashells.

 

My table centerpiece circles looked adorable all dressed up with glittery die cut accents. This number 5 with star fish attached was so fun.

 

Dipped oreos in the party colors with contrasting sprinkles made a perfect under the sea treat.

 

Of course gummy sharks were a must!

 

Pretzel rods dipped in melting candy with sprinkles were adorable with the life saver accent.

 

A sandy beach(brown sugar) of candy melt fish and shells and starfish cookies were a perfect beachy treat.


Streamers were twisted and lined the walls to create an under the sea seaweed feel through the whole house.

The dolphin princess birthday girl wore this sweet seashell covered headband.

 

Seaweed grapes were made for a super quick and easy snack using skewers and a clear vase.

 

Goldfish were given a nautical feel in this awesome clear jar.

 

This beautiful shell watermelon was a piece of art. It almost looked to pretty to eat. Almost!

 

Printable dolphin water bottle labels made drinks easy for guests to grab while the played.

 

Outside this fun photo backdrop was created.

 

Various props were available including a life vest, beachball, sunglasses, and other paper props.

 

A gift table was decorated with netting and my printable dolphin happy birthday banner.

 

Guest tables were dressed up with more of our printable dolphin party centerpiece circles and various die cut images. The tables had more of the netting used on top of tablecloths for a beachy feel.

 

The highlight of the party of course, was this water slide! The kids stayed cool splashing for hours. This right here is the perk of a summer party. No activities needed. Just provide water!

 

Each guest took home a mini sand pail filled with treats.

 

The full printable package and invitation are available in my etsy shop!

My best friend’s daughter is OBSESSED with unicorns.  The party was a mix of pastel watercolors and gold glitter accents. This party had everything any little girl would want. Unicorns everywhere, sparkle, lots of yummy treats, and crafting.

 

This unicorn was found at Target last year. It was not however nearly this cute. He was all beige. A sweet flower mane and pink unicorn horn were transplanted to create the focal point of the unicorn party table.

 

Isn’t this cake dreamy?!?! My favorite cake lady made the beautiful cake base and mom added all kinds of yummy treats and the adorable cake topper to create a masterpiece.

 

Fruity pebble rice crispy treats and candy melt coated popcorn were 2 of the yummy unicorn treats served. 

 

Cute mint green popcorn boxes were dressed up with my printable unicorn cupcake toppers. 

 

The girls each took home a favor box featuring one of my printable unicorn favor tags. Each included a plush unicorn, unicorn emoji cup, and unicorn cotton candy with another printable favor tag.

 

I love the combo of the pink, purple, and mint green used on this party table,

 

This sweet space was created for the birthday girl to open gifts. Our printable I (heart) unicorns banner and amazing unicorn balloon tower were perfect together.

 

Even the dolls had a unicorn party.

 

Lots of plush unicorn friends were a part of the festivities.

 

The printable unicorn centerpiece circles were used on several tables throughout the party.

 

Face painting and crafts were next on the party agenda. This adorable unicorn horn was added to headbands for all of the guests to wear. So cute!!!

 

Last was a unicorn piñata!

 

 

Such a beautiful party for a beautiful girl!

Summer is just around the corner and a pirate party is the perfect summer party theme. My friend threw this party last summer for her 3 kids and there are so many amazing details to share.

 

 

You guys….. THIS PIRATE SHIP!!! This was by far the coolest part of the party. My friend made this out of cardboard boxes and craft paint. A few PVC pipes for the frame of the pirate flag. Isn’t it the coolest thing ever?!?! The guests all came dressed as pirates and had so much fun in this ship.

 

No pirate ship is complete without a plank to walk. The kids had a blast walking over this plank over and over. 

 

The play structure got a make over. Our printable Yo Ho Ho banner was an adorable addition.

 

The playhouse became a pirate booty snack shack with a sweet printable pennant banner and snacks.

 

A cute spot for photos was created with colored butcher paper palm trees.

 

Printable labels on cans were used to create a ball toss game for the pirate guests. 

 

The trampoline became Dead Man Sea! Adorable!!! 

 

A lemonade stand was dressed up with butcher paper, a printable pirate pennant banner and printable sign to make a temporary tattoo parlor. 

 

 

My super crafty friend made these amazing pirate numbers for each of her kids. She added them to a container with my printable centerpiece circles.

 

All of the party food had fun pirate themed names using our printable pirate food tent cards.

 

 

I love all the details in this sweets table.

 

Printable pirate cupcake toppers add lots of fun pirate details. A paper pirate ship was the perfect topper to the cupcake stand.

 

Gold deplumes were were made out of oreos, gummy sharks, and a treasure chest piñata were all fun additions.

 

This amazing jar was the perfect nautical touch to hold dipped pretzels in the party colors.

 

Pick Your Poison at the beverage station. 

 

Create a name tag with the fun pirate name chart.

 

Crafts included message in a bottle necklaces for the girls and foam pirate ships for the boys.

 

Our printable treat bag toppers were used to make favor bags for guests with eye patches, pirate treasure beads, a spy glass and more.This party had so many amazing DIY touches. The kids all had a blast!

I offer 2 styles of printable pirate décor in my shop. This party used parts of both packages. They can easily be mixed and matched. Both printable party décor packages include lots of great items: Happy Birthday banner, pennant banners, cupcake toppers, centerpiece circles, water bottle wraps, favor tags, party signs, and more.

Our little monster turned 3! Monster has always been a nickname for our youngest, so it seemed like a perfect theme. I knew I wanted a variety of friendly monsters and bright colors. I LOVE how this party turned out. 

 

Classic white cupcakes are dressed up with printable monster cupcake toppers. I love the big eyeball. haha! I created these fun cupcake stands by covering a box in fur fabric. It added a fun monster feel and a great pop of color.

 

This cute little monster cake was one of my favorite items of the party.  Blue for my son’s favorite color. There are lots of tutorials on pinterest to make these yourself. 

 

One of the things I loved about this theme was all of the cute treats that could be made. Wilton sugar eyeballs in several sizes were added to colored sugar cookies for a silly monster cookie.

 

Dipped pretzels are a favorite at my parties. I purchase pretzel rods at my grocery store and dip them in melted Wilton’s white candy melts. Then top with sprinkles of your choice. I added them to clear jar with eyeballs to make bright monster hair. 

 

My son requested a party hat last minute. I found a plain blue party hat at my local party store and dressed it up with googly eyeballs, a card stock mouth, and fur accents left over from my boxes. 

 

Isn’t that hat the cutest? Ok maybe the birthday boy adds to the cute factor. 🙂 I found his adorable shirt on etsy from Heather Rogers Designs. It was perfect!

 

I created a kids party table with simple centerpieces made from my printable party circles in colored containers and monster sticker sheets.  

 

We had an Adopt a Monster table for guests to take home a party favor as they left. My printable monster centerpiece circles created a cute display. 

 

Each favor had a mini plush monster, bubbles with a printable label, and a monster sucker. They were packaged with my printable monster favor tags.

 

A friend and I created this monster bean bag toss. We used a large card board box and craft paint. Pizza pans and cookie sheets made perfect stencils for our smaller monsters. We used an exacto knife to cut out their mouths. We cut out the horns, teeth, and eyes from card stock to add some extra details. This was such an inexpensive party game and super fun to make. 

 

Around Halloween I found fun monster photo props at Target. My kids always love taking photos with friends using fun props. It has become a regular activity at our parties. 

 

 

Our monster party was a big hit! I had one happy little boy. I hope you found some fun ideas for your next monster party. 

Happy Birthday Little Monster!

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for a friend’s baby girl. She chose an elephant theme in her nursery so I went with the same theme. I love being able to use the nursery theme when designing a baby shower. I use decorations from the shower as a gift for the mom to be.

I started this set with the base of my original boy Elephant baby shower I designed a few years ago. I swapped the colors for a soft baby pink and gray and updated some of the designs. Be watching for an updated boy version soon. I had fun adding some layered die cut card stock elements to my printables for this party. 5M Creations originally began with all die cut layered party décor. It was fun to use them again.  I love the mix of patterns you get with printables and the texture the layered card stock brings.

 

As one of the gifts for the mom to be I created this diaper cake. If you have never made one, it is just diapers rolled up to make each tier. I prefer Pampers Swaddlers(since they are white) in a size 1. I bought these sweet pink and gray fabrics at my local craft store. I cut them to the size I needed and secured them in the back with straight pins. You can use swaddle or receiving blankets as well if you find some that match your colors.

 

I created a mini Baby banner in this printable elephant baby shower package to use on the middle tier. I added die cut elephants to the end and secured them to lollipop sticks. I also used one our the printable centerpiece circles for the bottom tier. 

 

For the top tiers I found this adorable pink elephant plush at Target! I was so thrilled. Isn’t it the cutest. I also found a set of baby headbands in white and this soft pink bow. It was the perfect accent for the top tier. This is another way to tie in a gift for mom in your decorations.

 

I kept the sweets simple with classic white cupcakes. I added sweet cupcake toppers punched with a scallop punch for a girly touch. I love this cake stand from Home Goods. I can swap out the ribbon to match any theme I need. 

 

My printable elephant centerpiece circles were dressed up with an extra layer of scalloped circles behind them. Add them to a cute pink bucket and they are a perfect focal point for any table.

 

One of my favorite drink containers to use are these glass milk bottles. I have mentioned in previous posts that I purchase starbucks coffee in these bottles and remove the labels. So much less expensive than buying fancy glassware. Add a cute printable water bottle wrap and a paper straw to add to any party theme.

 

I love the little details in parties. These printable napkin wraps are a perfect way to add an extra little touch of cuteness. Plain silverware and napkins become part of the décor. 

 

Tissue poms are such a fun decoration for a baby shower. They are so soft and whimsical. My table was very deep and I needed a way to fill the space without making it look to busy. Tissue poms were perfect. They pulled in the colors of the party perfectly while serving a purpose. I used them on the wall as well around the banners. Tissue poms are such an inexpensive way to add big impact to a party space. You can find a tutorial here

 

For party favors I used pink and white circus cookies in these tiny clear boxes. They were an adorable sweet treat to send with guests as they left. However most of them were eaten before they even got out the door. You are never to old for animal crackers. 

 

I tied a printable favor tag punched with a scallop punch to each box with a simple white ribbon.

 

 

My printable elephant baby shower décor package includes an It’s A Girl banner. For this party I created a banner using the baby’s name so that it could be used in t he nursery as well. Personalization is always an option with any of my party packages. 

 

This elephant pennant banner dressed up a mirror in my party space that was over the food table. It is included in the package. 

 

As guests entered the party I had them put addresses on envelopes to make it easier for mom to send out thank you cards. I printed a set of matching printable elephant thank you cards to send with the mom as well. This sweet L was created by purchasing a wooden letter from the craft store. I traced it onto scrapbook paper and glued the paper to the letter. I added one of the die cut elephants. Decoration that doubles as a gift.

 

Another sweet gift for mom were these blessing cards. Guests wrote messages to the baby girl. Add them to an album for a sweet keepsake to look back on years later.

 

Last in my photo story, but really first… as guests entered they were greeted by this welcome sign. It would be adorable on a nursery door as well. 

 

I love the soft look of this pink and gray combo. It was such a fun party to design. The full party décor package and printable elephant baby shower invitation are both in my shop. I hope you enjoyed this party as much as I did.

This customer gingerbread house party is so much fun! Having a December birthday lends itself to a fun holiday theme. What better choice than gingerbread!

It is also great for a cookie decorating party or cookie exchange!

 

These cute little gingerbread men cookies are the perfect toppers to a simple cupcake. Add a polka dot baking cup for a great pop of color. I love the use of lime green to brighten up the classic Christmas colors.

 

A classic white cake is a perfect base to add a fun toppers or custom decor of your own.

 

Cupcake toppers don’t have to be used on cupcakes. These gingerbread toppers are tied to glass milk bottles to dress up guests drinks. Paper ribbon wrapped around just adds to the look.

Cute photo props are always a fun activity to get photos of each guests with the birthday girl as guests arrive.

 

Printable peppermint candy and gingerbread cookies make a sweet garland for any table or mantle. This fabric swag garland layered with it was a great addition.

 

A hot chocolate bar is always delicious on a cold wintery day. I love stations where my guests can customize to their liking.

 

Marshmallow candy cane stir ins for the hot chocolate are yummy but also just as cute.

 

Another set of gingerbread house centerpiece circles was used to dress up the hot cocoa bar. Use containers of any shape to fit the space you need to decorate.

 

 

Each girl at the party got a gingerbread house to decorate. Thank you Costco Kits these cuties were pre built and came with lots of cute decorations! I love anyway to make my planning simpler.

Last Halloween we hosted a Halloween Party for a bunch of friends after school. 4 moms worked together each doing a different station/activity/game. The kids had a blast and so did we. Typically we just dress up and go trick-or-treating, but this was an easy way to make the day even more special. My printable Halloween Party Decor package made this party so easy to put together. I hope you find some fun ideas you can use as you read along.

 

 

I love all the colors in this Trick-or-Treat Banner. The orange, green and purple create a colorful space. So many fun patterns and it comes with several images as well. I normally use this above my front door to greet kids on Halloween night.

 

My printable Halloween cupcake toppers have tons of cute Halloween images (pumpkin, black cat, witches hat, cauldron, spider, and moon) and sayings. There is nothing spooky about these cuties. Dress up a store bought cupcake or make a fun candy corn layered cupcake at home.

 

This printable Halloween party set comes with lots of fun centerpiece options in all of the images you loved in the cupcake toppers above. You could easily leave out the Happy Halloween wording and use just the images in this set for a Halloween themed birthday party we well. I created this Halloween centerpiece double sided so everyone around the table could enjoy it.

 

More of the centerpiece circles were used on the food table in smaller sets of 2. These centerpiece circles are so versatile and add a ton of color and fun to any party space.

 

I used paper fans on the walls and on sticks on the main table to fill in some empty areas in the party space. Add some cute plastic spiders for a spooky touch.

 

Our favorite cheddar and caramel popcorn mix in cute striped treat cups made a easy snack to hand out to the kids.

 

Since Halloween is full of all kids of sugary treats we tried to add a few healthier ones as well. These ghost bananas and jack-o-lanterns were the perfect addition. The kids gobbled them up.

 

Printable favor tags on white bags held all sorts of non candy goodies for the kids to enjoy after the party. I love having a little something to send with my guests.

 

A boring formal dining room quickly became a fun Halloween space with lots of colors and patterns. Don’t be afraid to layer all types of colors, patterns, and textures in your space.

 

Water bottle wraps on glass starbucks bottles, layered orange plates, spider web napkin, and treat cups created a fun place setting for each kid.

 

My dining room filled up quickly with lots of noise and adorable costumes!

 

Sticky fingers created monster faces on sugar cookies for our first activity. Yes we still had some sugary treats. It is Halloween after all.

 

Next we split the kids up into groups and had them rotate stations each with a different kids Halloween activity. The first was a blind spooky feel game. Each child reached under the towels to guess what was inside. A jello brain, worms(cold cooked spaghetti), witches hair(dry spaghetti), Eyeballs(wet grapes). Get creative. There are so many creepy things you could create with this game.

 

As you can see it was a successful activity. haha!

 

We had a monster bean bag toss. This was created with a giant piece of cardboard and craft paint for my son’s monster birthday party. Post coming soon! It was perfect to use for our Halloween party as well.

 

Next we had a spider race. I placed a piece of painter’s tape down the middle of the floor. The kids each got a straw and plastic spider. The goal was to be the first to blow it across the finish line. They played this over and over and over!

 

Last, to quiet things down we did a round of Halloween Bingo. My friend brought these cards from a printable set she had purchased previously on etsy. I am not sure who the exact seller is but there are tons of options on etsy to choose from. We played until each child got a bingo. They got their favor bags as their prize. 

 

12 cute kids in costume and 1 successful Halloween Party! We all had a spooky, sticky, noisy, fun time! I hope you use some of these ideas to create your own party.

 

You can find the printable package including everything you saw and more in my etsy shop. Matching invitations are sold separately.

Months ago my friend Dara and I made a long drive to Hobby Lobby. It is almost 2 hours from our homes. If you are lucky enough to have ever gone to a Hobby Lobby you know why we went. We found so many fun things. We came across some adorable lemonade decorations. I mentioned to her that I have always wanted to do a lemonade party. It has never happened as my daughter has a December birthday. We decided to have a little lemonade party with 4 sweet friends. What a perfect thing to do on a summer day.

Dara found a great photo of a lemonade stand made from crates on pinterest. She went to work and created the most adorable stand. It was perfect for all of the party decor.

 

 

We set up the stand in my backyard. The shelves on the stand gave us places to add lots of lemon accents.

 

The top of the stand features my printable lemonade banner and these mini poms.

 

We served adorable pink cupcakes and lemon bars for our party treats. Dress up a store bought cupcake with a polka dot cup and printable lemonade stand cupcake toppers.

 

A cute chalkboard sign was the perfect frame for a printable lemonade sign. Every lemonade stand needs to tell customers how much each glass costs.

 

Clear glass milk bottles wrapped in my printable lemonade water bottle labels created the cutest drink containers.

 

Pink and yellow layered tissue poms added a whimsical soft burst of color along side a jar of lemons.

 

We created a tea party type atmosphere in my backyard. Dara’s cute Pottery Barn table and pink chairs could not have been more perfect.

 

A baby pink burlap table runner was layered with a lemon slice cloth napkin to create a sweet tablescape.

 

Each place setting had a placecard telling the girls where to sit, a fun pink and yellow pinwheel, silverware wrapped in my printable napkin wrap, a jar of sweet lemonade, and a favor box.

 

Dress up a mason jar with a ribbon, printable cupcake topper, and colored paper straw. I love how just a few little touches create such a custom fancy drink.

 

Lemon drops in clear boxes were the perfect sweet treat for the girls to take home. Just add a ribbon and printable lemonade favor tag.

 

The center of the table featured my printable lemonade centerpiece set. A simple yellow metal bucket made it pop. Make the circles double sided so guests can enjoy it from both sides of the table.

 

The girls were so excited to dig into these yummy treats.

 

They had fun just being giggly girls. It was so fun watching them enjoy all the little details.

 

 

We enjoyed lots of yummy sweet lemonade of course.

 

And went back to pour even more.

 

I think they would have spent all day playing at this lemonade stand if they could have.

 

Their dolls even got in on the fun.

 

Our lemonade stand party was a big hit. Perfect for a backyard treat with friends, birthday party, or even a lemonade stand in the front yard. How could neighbors resist this cute lemonade stand?

 

My printable lemonade party decor package is available now in my etsy shop. It comes with all the printable decor you saw above plus a Happy Birthday Banner.

2 matching invitation styles are also available.

I feel like I have been saying this a lot lately, but this Police Party Package has become one of the most popular sets in my shop. A friend shared these photos of her son’s party using our printable police birthday party decorations. There are so many fun details. The front door welcomed guests with a cute ride on police bike and the porch(just outside the photo) was wrapped with caution tape.

 

This printable police party package was created to coordinate with the police tableware from Oriental Trading Company. They have tons of cute accessories to add to your party.

 

Our printable Police Happy Birthday Banner was hung above the food table in the backyard. It was mounted on white card stock to add an extra border.

 

The backyard was transformed into a police training area. There was a nerf shooting range, pin the badge on the officer, and a Police Car Pinata.

 

This amazing police car pinata was made by mom!!! Isn’t it awesome! And that swat costume on the birthday boy is super cute.

 

Our printable police centerpiece circles were at each guest table.

 

The trampoline was the jail! So fun!

 

Inside was a dessert table with cupcakes featuring printable police cupcake toppers, dipped pretzel rods in the party colors, money(chocolate gold coins) and donuts of course. 

 

Water bottles for the parched officers were wrapped with our printable police water bottle labels.

 

This photo op was so cute! The kids had a blast standing in front of it.

 

No booking is complete without fingerprints.

 

Last, everyone went home with a favor. The contained everything a police officer needs. A gun(squirt gun of course), notepad, handcuffs, and more. 

 

You can find all of these printable decorations and more in my etsy shop. Personalization can also be added as shown in the party photos.

 

There are 2 printable police birthday party invitations in the shop. The first is below with a light blue background. It can be found here. 

 

The second invite features the stripe pattern shown in the party decor. It can be found here

 

If you have used our printable police party decorations I would love to see photos and possibly feature it on my instagram or on my blog. fivemcreations@gmail.com

This tribal baby shower has become a best seller in my shop. I thought it was about time to share with you all the party details.

I was honored to co-host a baby shower for a dear friend’s 2nd baby boy. She had a squirrel as her only suggestion for a theme. I love throwing showers that I can incorporate decor into a gift for their nursery. We had done a fox woodland theme (you can see it on the blog) for her last son so wanted to go a slightly different direction. We did more of a tribal feeling theme. We used teepees, arrows, feathers, and the cute little gray squirrel. It was such a fun theme that lent itself to so many cute details.

These layered banners made such a big impact in the room. I love the use of twine to tie them continuing the earth tones.

 

The row of arrows tie into the patterns on the It’s A Boy banner. The tiny teepees were clipped onto the twine with mini clothespins. All of these items are included in the tribal baby shower printable party decor package. The package also includes images of teepees, arrows, and dream catchers if you are not using squirrels. These would all be adorable in the new baby’s nursery after the shower.

 

This cake was custom made to coordinate with our invitation. You can see the inspiration at the bottom of this page. I love the look of the cake on the woven basket and tree slice.

 

We tried to incorporate as many natural elements as we could. This branch frame was the perfect addition and a great find at a local craft store. The addition of the clothespins and baby photos made a great gift for the mom to be.

 

We had a second table just for the all the yummy food. On the back wall you can see 3 custom pieces of art that will be used as a gift for mom for baby’s room. The center image has all of baby’s birth stats. This shower was thrown after his arrival. I am working on adding more sets like this to my shop soon.

 

A sweet printable centerpiece incorporated baby’s name and the images used throughout the party. As I mentioned before several other images are available in the tribal baby shower printable party decor package.

 

These little teepee hats were one of my favorite items we created. They were on both tables in the 2 coordinating papers. The paper feathers were the perfect touch. 

 

My favorite stacking tray was used once again in this shower. Tiny little acorn cookies filled the top tier, pinecones to add to the nature feel and yummy veggie cups. 

 

There were lots of yummy food items for guests to enjoy. Pinwheel sandwiches, cheese and crackers, apples and dip.

 

These tiny chicken salad appetizers were an easy but savory item to include. For baby showers I love doing an assortment of finger foods that feel fancy. The chocolate dipped pretzels mimicked our trees on the decor perfectly.

 

Once again here is my love for napkin wraps. These were made from the matching patterned paper and placed in a cute mini wheel barrow. The wooden silverware follows our natural elements throughout the baby shower.

 

Since we did not have cupcakes I used the toppers on glass milk bottles for the guests to enjoy beverage in. A touch of twine and a paper straw dressed up an ordinary container.

 

The beverages were in the kitchen, but there was no reason this space should be ignored. A branch with pinecones and a simple vase of flowers pulled together an otherwise boring area.

 

My co-host found these sweet items for the baby’s nursery so we used them on our gift table. Isn’t that wooden teepee art amazing?

 

We played 2 games. The Price is Right and Scattergories. I don’t know about you but I am not a huge fan of typical baby shower games. These were fun and brought out the creativity and competitiveness of the group. They will be available in my shop shortly along with a bingo card.

 

As guests entered and left the party this was in the entry. I created another large sign that could be used in baby’s nursery but also welcomed guests to the space.  Don’t be afraid to use frames already in your home by adding custom art.

 

Each guest signed this squirrel book with a message for baby as he grows. What a special keepsake from a fun day.

 

The blue jars you see were the prizes for the games. Mason jars make such cute vessels for so many things. We had them filled with flowers in several places as well as the acorns above.

 

The favor bags each had a printable favor tag and paper feather clipped with the mini clothespin. Inside were yummy truffles and salted caramel chocolates. I love sending guests home with something to remind them of the party.

 

The Tribal Baby Shower Printable Decor Package is available in my etsy shop. It is also available in girl colors. If you love this set but are throwing a shower for someone who doesn’t know the gender just message me. I would be happy to do it with Baby Shower wording vs It’s a Boy/Girl!

 

This is the original invitation created for the shower. I love the tall trees on either side.

 

I also created this version in both a baby shower and birthday party layout. Wouldn’t a Tribal Birthday Party or a Wild One Birthday Party theme be so fun?

 

It is also available in girl colors.

 

If you throw a party using either of these packages I would love to see photos of your event. You can email them to fivemcreations@gmail.com.  I am always looking for parties to feature here or in my shop.
