What little girl hasn’t dreamt of going to Paris someday? A Paris party is such a fun theme. This customer party features the classic pink and black color scheme with plenty of Parisian touches. 

 

A play on french food was done with a breakfast of French Toast 🙂 , croissants, scones, berries, and more.

 

Food tent cards had the french words for each item. Such a cute touch to the party table. 

 

My printable banner square is paired with a sparkly Eiffel tower and number 9 to create a cute centerpiece for the food table. Think outside the box when using printables. Cupcake toppers can be used to create a mini banner or tag. Each item can be used lots of ways.

 

 

A sweet dessert table was created featuring Eiffel Tower cookies, dipped oreos, cupcakes, and several pink beverages. Mix and match lots of small treats to create a pretty tablescape.

 

Water bottle labels are a simple way to add a touch of the party theme with poodles and Eiffel Towers. 

 

Coordinating Paris printable cupcake toppers are the perfect addition to the dessert table. 

 

The party mom created this fun photo booth with a pink table cloth, Eiffel Tower but from black butcher paper, poms, and a few photo props. This is a great way to get a photo with each guest at the party. I love sending photos from parties with my thank you notes.  Kids love the keepsake.

 

Even the American Girl Doll was dressed for the occasion with her Paris Art set up.

 

The main table was set up for guests to enjoy their treats with fancy chargers, pink and black Paris dishes, and candlelight. 

 

An art studio was set up for a Paris paint night. Each girl painted an Eiffel Tower canvas to take home.

 

As favors guests took an Eiffel Tower chocolate dressed up with matching printable Paris favor tags. 

 

What a fun party theme! You can find the coordinating printable decor and invitations in my etsy shop.

What screams TWEEN PARTY more than Emojis?!? This adorable customer party is such a great mix of classic black and white and pops of emoji yellow.

The backdrop was created using an oversized canvas and printable emoji images found in my emoji party decor package.

 

A simple white store bought cake is dressed up with cute emoji sugar candies and a mini birthday banner.

 

Printable emoji cupcake toppers were added to store bought chocolate cupcakes. Reminiscent of the classic poop emoji without being quite so literal. ha! 

 

White gable boxes made the perfect favor box. They are a perfect blank canvas. Paper ribbon, printable emojis, and favor tags make them coordinate perfectly with the party decor. 

 

Inside was all emoji themed of course. Emoji graham crackers, pencil, ball, plush keychains, cups, and water bottles wrapped with a printable emoji label. The bottle matched the box emoji so each kid knew which one was theirs. 

 

Emoji helium balloons framed the large party table with a great pop of color. 

 

This cute light up emoji was a great addition to the table. 

 

 

This mini rainbow poop emoji was the talk of the party. 

 

Emojis, Emojis everywhere!!! Plush emoji pillows added to the furniture was a fun touch.

 

My printable emoji banner was hung by the birthday girl’s seat of honor. The Emoji Movie played as guests arrived. 

 

I love this little centerpiece set up using my printable Emoji centerpiece circles. I will be honest it took me a second to know what HBD2U was. haha! (Happy Birthday To You for anyone like me that didn’t get it at first.)

 

The full printable emoji party decor package is in my etsy shop

 

Lots of versions of coordinating emoji invitations are available as well. A classic layout and a Texting layout are both available in multiple colors. The party decor package can be made in any of the colors shown.

This customer mermaid party has all the whimsical touches a mermaid party should. The flowy table skirt gives you the feeling that you are floating under water. A beautiful balloon garland arch frames the table making a huge statement in the room while giving the feel of bubble floating. 

 

I love personalizing a party with the child’s name. These DIY hand decoracted paper mache name letters take personalization to a new level. Each letter is unique with tons of texture and sparkle.

 

The party table held tons of under the sea mermaid inspired treats like these gorgeous sugar cookies by Swirls of Sugar. You can also see cute s’mores party favors featuring my printable treat bag toppers.

 

The attention to detail in these cookies is amazing. They are each a yummy piece of art. 

 

Cute hair ties made with mermaid ribbon were a fun take home for the party guests. 

 

Here is a closer look at the adorable s’mores party favor. 

 

This cake was created by using a plain white store bought cake. The party mom dressed it up with all of her daughter’s favorite yummy treats and some of the sugar cookies. This is such a great DIY party tip. You don’t have to pay $$$ for a show stopping cake. 

 

Sweet little gold mermaids topped cupcakes. 

 

Grapes were stacked on skewers to look like seaweed. This look was also shown in the dolphin party I shared not long ago. 

 

Bubble wands had my printable mermaid favor tags backed with gold glittery paper. The tiny little pearl accents with the ribbons is perfect for a mermaid theme. 

 

The printable mermaid Happy Birthday banner was hung by the birthday girl’s seat. 

 

Even the dolls got in on the mermaid fun. 

 

The girls sat at this adorable table. A sand colored table runner was the perfect base for all of the bright pops of mermaid accents. 

 

Tulle ribbon was tied to each chair with a star fish creating special seats for each guest.

 

Instead of 1 large centerpiece my printable centerpiece circles were individually placed in mason jars. 

 

Each circle was backed with gold glitter paper to add sparkle to the table.

 

Printable cupcake toppers were tied to glass jars for drinks. 

 

The entry way featured this DIY sparkly ribbon garland. Touches teal and gold elements on the table made a beautiful welcome to the party. 

 

How cute is that octopus plate?!?! A perfect accent piece. Multiples of my printable mermaid centerpiece circles were put together to create a fun centerpiece set. 

 

Outside this balloon net was a great backdrop for an art station. The girls painted sea shells. 

 

The guests each took home a sand bucket with a printable mermaid favor tag to carry all their party goodies home in. 

 

A drink station was set up outside with this cute foam cooler turned into a treasure chest.

 

Cute little mermaid and narwhal squeezy toys were ready for a water fight. These doubled as a party favor.  

 

The girls spent the rest of the party running through the unicorn sprinkler and having a water fight. The towels were made into mermaid tails with small rubber bands on the ends. Another adorable but functional party favor for the win!

My daughter has always loved anything from the 1950s. When the Mary Ellen American Girl doll came out and she got a diner to go with it we knew it would be the perfect party theme! My goal was to create a fun diner style atmosphere. I always love the retro colors and black and white check patterns in diners. I used this as the starting point when designing this 50’s diner party decor package. 

 

At the table I started with a simple black and white check table runner to continue the patterns in the printable party decor.

 

I used these cute red cake stands (found in the Target Dollar Spot) to add some color. They held printable diner menus and retro ketchup and mustard containers.  A restaurant style napkin dispenser added to the diner feel.

 

My printable 50s printable party circles made the perfect centerpiece for the table. I love the cute jukebox and poodle skirt images throughout the party line.

 

Glass soda bottles were dressed up with a printable water bottle label. The girls loved drinking soda from them.

 

At each place setting I used records as chargers. A printable label personalized it and made a keepsake for the party guests. I went to our local Goodwill store and bought tons of old records. The style of music did not matter for this use. 

 

Food was served in classic red diner food baskets and checkered liners. The girls had their choice of hotdogs and hamburgers served with a side of fries.

 

It is always fun to set up a little doll scene matching the party decor. MaryEllen had a yummy meal at the diner too.

 

For the main party table I had this extra large Madison’s Diner sign printed. I loved the impact it made in the space. This table held the desserts and party favors. 

 

The cake was inspired by a pink poodle skirt, the sign image, and of course a jukebox. Look at that tiny record inside. 

 

Just in case anyone needed something other than soda I used these 50’s printable labels to dress up water bottles. They featured all of the cute images found in the party decor package. 

 

As if cake was not enough, we had yummy root beer floats served in these cute ice cream sundae cups. 

 

Party favors for the guests were adorable in these pink classic car favor boxes. 

 

Each girl got a pair of vintage glasses and polka dot scarf to wear during the party. 

 

Also included was pink and blue cotton candy with a printable favor tag. 

 

50s inspired sugar cookies were wrapped up and sent home with each of the girls as well. They were all to sugared out to eat them during the party. ha!

 

After our yummy diner experience we had fun with a photo booth 50’s sock hop style.

 

We made these cute saddle shoes from basic white tennis shoes found at Target. I used black craft paint to paint the inside shape. 

 

I purchased a set of printable 50s photo props on Etsy. They were super simple to print at home and cut out. The girls had a blast being silly with them. 

 

Next we had a hoola hoop contest. It was so funny to watch. The girls loved it!

 

Last for the evening was karaoke. This is where the evening got the silliest. They sang their hearts out and laughed until they cried. 

 

This was such a fun party theme. Having the guests come dressed up made it even more fun. The girls really got into character. I hope you enjoyed our 50’s Diner Party.

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.
