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.

Welcome to our Donut Shop! In today’s post I am sharing ideas for throwing a donut themed birthday party. Set the stage for your guests with a great invite telling them about your theme before they ever step foot into the party. We used this printable donuts and pajamas party invitation. It features bright colored donuts, sprinkles, and fun coffee(hot chocolate) cups.

 

We welcomed the guests with this printable donut sign on the front door.

 

My daughter wanted lots of and lots of bright colored donuts on display for this party. Donuts were everywhere! From real donuts, to balloons, plates, centerpieces, and banners.  

 

We created a colorful party table with different heights of cake stands piled high with donuts in lots of colors and shapes. The tassel garland and printable donut happy birthday banner just carried the colors throughout the room. I love the mini donut and coffee cup garland as well. It dressed up a plain tablecloth. You can never have to many donuts.

 

Even though we had donuts for dessert, the birthday girl wanted a cake. Of course a giant donut cake was the only answer. I love the classic light pink frosting with sprinkles.

 

Donuts everywhere! They were the easiest decoration ever! All you have to do is stack them up on cute trays and they make such a big impact.

 

My dining room was the perfect space to create our donut shop. We even swapped out our normal curtains for pink to make the space as girly as possible. Don’t be afraid to use what you already have in your space. Just customize it for your theme. Add photos to existing frames, cover throw pillows on couches with cute pillow covers to transform your space.

 

Printable water bottle labels around glass milk bottles made adorable glasses for the girl’s beverages. I purchased the starbucks iced coffee drinks from our local Target and removed the labels.

 

These donut shaped balloons were found at a local party store. I used acrylic craft paint to create frosting and sprinkles in our party colors. 

 

The Donut Shop sign above was a fun find at Home Goods. The Canvas below was colored by my daughter. We found it at Hobby Lobby. My daughter now has them in her bedroom. Think outside the box when it comes to decor. Use things that you can reuse in your home later.

 

Mini number balloons and our printable donut party centerpiece circles created the main centerpiece on the party table. The chevron table runner added a splash of color to a bland white table cloth. Sprinkle confetti was created by punching circles out of tissue paper.

 

2 smaller centerpieces were created using the garland images and printable donut party centerpiece circles. Just add them to white lollipop sticks and insert into cute containers. I find all different sizes and colors on a regular basis in the Target Dollar Spot or our local craft stores. I typically only pay $1-3. I have collected them throughout the years in many sizes and colors.

 

My daughter wanted to set up a mini donut party for her American Girl doll to enjoy as well. We made a mini donut balloon by not inflating one of the balloons fully. She also made a cute pennant banner using the matching printable paper from the party package.

 

Spinkle donut plates, hot pink coffee cups for hot chocolate, printable donut bingo cards, and tent cards created a place setting for each girl.

 

The first event of the evening was playing bingo. I created printable donut bingo cards to match the decor. I purchased a cute mini bingo cage from Amazon and used donut cereal as the markers. They girls had such a blast playing bingo. We did several rounds. I had donut notepads as prizes.

 

Once the girls had eaten their fill of donuts we played a few other games. The birthday girl wanted to have donuts and hot chocolate as her theme. We played off the hot cocoa by using marshmallows to do a few relays. They formed 2 teams and carried marshmallows on spoons across the room and back. They then had to pass the marshmallow to a teammate using no hands. It was so fun to watch. The blurry photo is because they were practically running. haha! They took it very seriously.

 

The second game we played was a mini marshmallow toss. Each girl had a cup of mini marshmallows and had to toss them into a hot cocoa cup. Whoever got the most in the cup won. We broke them up in to 2 groups. As soon can see by my floor it was harder than it looked. 

 

Everyone came in their pjs of course. These crazy girls can have fun doing just about anything. Silly faces!!! 

 

I am pretty sure the girls were stuffed from all the donuts but we still had cake!!! Happy Birthday sweet girl!

 

The next morning I created a donut inspired breakfast with not as many donuts. The girls were all glad for this. They got their fill the night before.

 

Donut sprinkle cereal was a perfect option to carrying on the theme. This is the same cereal we used for Bingo earlier.

 

The only actual donut for breakfast were these donut hole strawberry skewers.

 

Last were donut bagels. (I colored cream cheese with food coloring to look like frosting)

 

The I Love Donut milk bottles were used for our breakfast beverages.

 

After all the party fun I loaded up extra donuts into gable boxes for the girls to take home. 

 

They also took home a coffee cup that had hot cocoa packets, sprinkles(sixlets), sprinkle nail polish, and a donut charm necklace.

 

The birthday girl wore here necklace for the party.

 

I hope you enjoyed all the donut party photos. This was one of my favorite parties as it included donuts in so many ways. Creating all the little touches is what makes a party so fun! The Donut Printable Party Decoration Package is available in my etsy shop as an instant download.

 

This matching Donut Bingo Card set includes 12 different cards. You can find the mini bingo cage here

 

2 different styles of printable donut invitations are available in my etsy shop.

 

If this doughnut party decor was not quite what you were looking for I have another doughnut package in my shop. Take a look at the matching invites as well. 

 

If you have used these printable products to create your own Donut Shop Party please send me photos to fivemcreations@gmail.com. I would love to see them and possibly feature them on the blog, instagram, or possibly my website. Thanks for stopping by!

For several years I have been wanting to throw a camping party for my boys. We decided 8 was the perfect age for a tent campout. In our new home we back up to a forest space. I knew I wanted to utilize this for a real outdoor camping feel. I set up the main party table with the trees as our backdrop.

 

For this party package I used wood grains and plaid for a very BOY outdoor feel. I started with this Happy Birthday banner. I love the cute tent images in my boys’ favorite colors. I displayed it on a pallet I stained. I shared earlier this week on Instagram how I did that with vinegar and steel wool!

 

I found adorable cakes on pinterest I wanted to recreate. You can see the original here. I almost always do cupcakes at the twins’ parties but these were perfect and they could each have their own cake. I used wood slices to create a cake stand making them front and center of the display. In the party package I have included the mini pennants in the full alphabet to create any name. I reduced the size slightly so longer names can fit as well.

 

Later in the evening we would be watching a movie on a projector. I wanted to let the boys create their own trail mix. My boys are super picky and don’t like traditional trail mix. By creating a trail mix bar each kid could pick their own snacks. Mini galvanized buckets were the perfect container to hold them.

 

I used the printable cupcake toppers on the front of these mini kraft bags for each boy to fill with their trail mix. Also included in the party package is a printable treat bag topper that says trail mix. You could premake your own trailmix and have them packaged ready to go if a make your own trail mix bar does not fit for you.

 

These tiered trays are one of my favorite party items I own. I have used them in so many ways. For this camping party they held the party favors. I filled in the extra spaces with pine cones for another natural element on the table.

 

For the party favors each boy got a flashlight. I put name tags on them so  there were no mix ups during the party.

 

I also created take home s’mores kits so the party fun could continue. These printable treat bag toppers come in 2 sizes. A larger version if you are creating a s’mores mix with mini marshmallows, choc chips, and a graham cereal instead. Another fun take on s’mores.

 

A closer look at the favors!

 

One the other side of the table we had all of our s’mores ingredients for our fire later that night. Get creative. Add multiple kinds of candies, various flavors of cookies or crackers, and even several kinds of marshmallows.

 

The chocolate graham crackers were a big hit!

 

I wanted to add a little more plaid to the table. I found these fun plaid fabrics at my local craft store. I cut strips and just did a basic slip knot around a strand of 5/8 ribbon to create a garland. Mix and match any fabric you like. Even add burplap strips for another texture.

 

My dreams of an outdoor party almost came to and end the week of the party. We live in Oregon and May is not always known for reliable weather. We get lots of rain. Of course the weeks on either side of the party were unseasonably warm. The day of the party however was rainy. We put up a pop up tent to cover the tables. The boys could have cared less about the rain. Give them some rubber boots and they were happy.

 

We were lucky to get a few breaks in the rain to have our fire. They even slept in the tent in the rain! 

 

As each boy arrived at the party they were given these fun wood slice name tags. If you follow me @5mCreations on Instagram you saw me creating these. I used block alphabet rubber stamps to add their names and a leaf stamp for the green.

 

The boys loved wearing these! This made another item to take home with their party favors.

 

For food we went simple. Classic hotdogs roasted over the fire, fruit and chips. Between this, trail mix, and cake nobody went hungry!

 

I love the look of these pie tins from the dollar store for plates. You might remember them from the camping party I posted on the blog a while back.

 

Hotdogs for everyone!

 

The pie tins keep everything from spilling off of laps. The mom part of me loves this. And they look so fun!

 

These lanterns seriously make my heart skip a beat. Aren’t they adorable. Ok maybe I shouldn’t say adorable for a boy’s party. I found them in blue and green and knew they had to make an appearance on the party tables. They come in so many colors.

My other favorite item in this photo is that basket. I went to an estate sale down the street a few months before the party and found this one and the one you may have noticed in the pie tin plate photo. You don’t get much more outdoors than a basket made of twigs. For the napkins inside I printed a sheet of patterned plaid paper (included in the party downloads), cut them 2×4 inches and wrapped them around the rolled napkins and wood silverware, tie with twine and they are complete. I have said this before but I love napkin wraps. They are so easy but make such a big impact.

 

The last step to our meal was drinks. Since it was an outdoor party I didn’t want to have to deal with a drink dispenser. I dressed up water bottles with these printable water bottle labels. Prefect for the boys to carry around to each activity.

 

 

This Camp centerpiece is created using party circles from my printable camping party decor package. I offer several styles of images. For my twins I wanted them each represented with their color of tent. The package comes with Happy Birthday and Happy Camper but personalization with your camp name is always available. Just add the sticks to your favorite container (floral foam in the bottom), cover with crinkle paper, and you are set.

 

Once dinner was done I got the boys together for a scavenger hunt. You may notice an odd object on our scavenger hunt list. We have a stone alligator that was left by the previous owner who lives in our forest. The boys got a kick out of it. A printable version of this card (without an alligator) is included in the camping birthday party decor package.

 

The boys had a great time hunting down the objects and checking them off. You could take it a step further if you wanted and give them each a bag to collect items in.

 

Next was birthday cake! My favorite thing about these cakes was that when you lit the candles you were lighting the fire.

 

I painted plain generic colored birthday candles with brown and white craft pain to make the logs.

 

We spent the rest of the evening watching a movie. This was supposed to be outdoors on a projector screen, however the rain and cold had the boys decide on warmth indoors. We ended the night camping out in the big tent in the backyard. Everyone bundled up and made it all the way through the night.

 

It was such a fun party! Happy Birthday boys! If you create a party using this package be sure to send me photos at fivemcreations@gmail.com. I am always looking for parties to feature here on my blog or in my shop.

 

The camping birthday party printable invitation can be customized to fit your needs. Are you throwing a party for twins or more than 1 child? I can easily add both names to this camping invite. You can find it for sale in my etsy shop.

 

The full camping birthday party printable decor package includes so many extras! Create your perfect camping party space! Personalization is also available. Find this printable decoration as an instant download in my etsy shop.

For my littlest guy we created a dinosaur nursery. It is so fun with bright pops of green, orange, and navy. I knew when I did his nursery that I wanted his first birthday party to match. I created this party line with dinosaur silhouettes inspired by some of the art I had in his room.

 

His smash cake featured this adorable fondant dino. The cake stand is from my daughter’s bake shop party got spray painted navy to fit a boy theme. 

 

These letters sit on top of his bookshelf in his room. I love that they are such a fun bold piece of decor on the table.

 

I created printable cupcake toppers with a mix of dinosaur silhouettes, happy birthday, and roar in the party colors. I love the look of these cute polka dot cupcake cups. They add so much color to the treats.

 

Each month I took a photo of my little guy with his stuffed dinosaur in his lime green cloth diaper. A blue frame made it the perfect addition to our dessert table. This party was all about celebrating his first year!

 

For his high chair I created a mini banner with the printable dinosaur centerpiece circles and a personalized circle with his name from our party decor package. I added a dinosaur bib from Skip Hop and a sweet birthday hat I found at my local party store. 

 

We rented a large community center to host the event. We expected around 75 friends and family. Even though it was a big space I wanted to make sure it was bright and colorful. The polka dot bouquets of balloons at each table were the perfect addition. 

 

Each table had a centerpiece, different photos of our little guy from throughout the year, a painted dinosaur figure, and an activity book I created for the kids. They were able to decorate it with stickers and crayons. Inside was a word search, maze, and more. 

 

Again for the decor I utilized several items from his room. The large M, stuffed dinos, and orange frame filled in the favor table nicely.

 

One the way out each guest took a favor. Inside was colored sixlets and mini dinosaur figures, topped with our printable treat bag toppers. 

 

There are so many fun elements included in this printable dinosaur party package. Not just for a first birthday. If you need other ages for a ONE banner just send me an email. I am happy to send you another age along with your purchase. Personalization of your child’s name is always an option. You can find it here in my etsy shop

 

A matching printable photo invitation is also available. A non photo version is available upon request. Soon I will be offering this package in girl colors. Girls love dinosaurs too!

My daughter waited not so patiently to turn 8 so she could have a slumber party for her birthday. Since a slumber party is an event all on its own we decided to make that our theme. No need for anything else. A sleepover lends itself to so many fun activities.

 

She wanted silver accents throughout. We decided the easiest way to do that was to layer all the slumber party printable decorations with silver glitter paper. You will notice the touch of sparkle throughout the decor.

 

We created a fun space to eat in our dining room. I lucked out that my paint scheme coordinated nicely with our party colors of aqua, hot pink, and navy. We used the chevron table runner from our Bake Shop Party. I found simple pink polka dot plates, and added a pop of color with polka dot tissue poms on the table and hanging.

 

I love this printable slumber party centerpiece trio. It features classic slumber party images. You can see the glimmer of sparkle added with the silver paper. Any basic box or container can be transformed to make a centerpiece. Just add green floral foam to the bottom and crinkle paper to cover it. Insert your sticks. Dress it up with some ribbon if you like.

 

We didn’t need cupcake toppers for this party as we were doing an ice cream bar. They were to cute not to use though. We dressed up mason jars using the slumber party cupcake topper circles, daisy cut out lids, and hot pink paper straws. 

 

A simple piece of ribbon adds a touch of color to a plain napkin. 

 

Instead of the traditional Happy Birthday banner we did Sweet Dreams to follow our slumber party theme. This is now hanging in my daughter’s bedroom. So fun to be able to use it as decor later as well.

 

Who says tissue poms have to be solid colors. I love the polka dots. These are also hanging in my daughters room. 

 

We started the evening with pizza making. We used pie dishes from the dollar store to hold each girl’s pizza. This kept all the toppings in place and not all over my kitchen. They all got to personalize their pizzas with their favorite toppings.

 

For dessert the birthday girl wanted an ice cream bar. The girls LOVED this. Set out a variety of toppings and styles of cones. Let them go crazy!

 

The birthday candle for the birthday girl.

 

Every slumber party needs popcorn and a movie. These cute popcorn boxes made cute perfect individual portions.

 

For the late night fun we had glow sticks ready.

 

We created a fun table with the party favors. All fitting the slumber party theme of course.

 

I created these paper fans from the same silver glitter paper we used everywhere else. They were the perfect addition to our favor table. The background was a board covered in cute wrapping paper.

 

I found these cute toiletry bags in the Target dollar spot. We filled them with nail polish, nail files, nail stickers, and lip gloss.

 

We bought slippers from the dollar tree (we added a cute bow).

 

Each girl brought a doll to the party. For party favors my daughter helped me make these fleece no sew sleeping bags for the dolls. You can find a tutorial here

 

The girls had a blast with a photo prop wall. We hung a piece of fabric and have them all sorts of dress up objects. They were so goofy!

 

Our last activity of the evening was coloring pillow cases. I traced each girl’s name with black onto plain white pillow cases I purchased on amazon. We provided multiple colors of fabric markers. I placed a piece of cardboard between the layers of fabric so it would not leak through. They colored during our movie time. 

 

For breakfast we had a waffle bar. Assembly style bars were kind of the theme for the food. haha! It made for a lot of elements to prep but the girls loved picking and choosing what they wanted.

 

We dressed up cute glass milk bottles with ribbon and polka dot straws for the morning beverages.

 

Pjs, behead hair, and piles of waffles were the perfect way to end the party. 

 

You can find the printable package in my shop here

 

And of course a matching invitation here.

I have so many fun parties to share with you over the next few weeks/months. I am playing catch up once again after taking a bit of a break from blogging. A family of 6 causes that to happen once in a while. Watch for some fun new themes that have been added to 5M.

For my daughter’s 9th birthday she wanted a theme both girls and boys would enjoy. After much thinking we landed on bowling. Who doesn’t love to bowl? The party mom in me cringed a little as I wasn’t sure what this would mean for decor. I requested a couple of end lanes so I could have a wall to do my table against. It worked perfectly. We carried in tubs of decor as ready to go as it could possibly be and set everything up in about 20 minutes prior to the party. Don’t be afraid to decorate even at an off site party location.

This cake was a special request by my 9 year old after letting her loose on pinterest. She fell in love. A local baker made it happen for us.Bowling Cake- Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I love this bowling party centerpiece trio. Those shoes!!! Centerpiece circles are one of my favorite ways to add the theme into my space. They can be on the larger side like this box set up or just single circles in a container. I also use them on the front of  things like buckets holding favor. The glitter 9 was actually a 6 I used at her baking party . Flipped over and tada! Bowling Centerpiece - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I lucked out that this toy bowling set my kids had matched the colors. Think outside the box when choosing decor. Don’t be afraid to look around the house for things you may already have. I love re-purposing things.

 

Our printable Happy Birthday bowling banner has cute stripes and fun bowling pin images. It can be personalized as well. Banners are such a great way to add big impact. Use them as your backdrop or across the front of a table like this.Bowling Banner - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I am in love with the bowling pin banner! Easy to string together and small enough to use anywhere in the party. How cute are those bowling pins?Bowling Banner - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I loved that our bowling alley let us set up our party space right at the lanes vs a party room. It made it easy for the kids to come and go as they ate. Plus we got to enjoy our decor the whole party. Not just for 30 minutes at the end.Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

These cute bowling images made the perfect centerpieces for the table. Mini galvanized buckets are one of my favorite containers for a single centerpiece. They are a great neutral base that can be dressed up with ribbon in your party colors. Bowling Centerpiece - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations Bowling Centerpiece - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

Each place setting had a bubble gum tube with our printable bowling favor tag.Bowling Party Favor - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

This week I am sharing another customer party. This party package was a custom request by the mom and I love how it turned out. A mix of gray chevron, red and navy, with cute vintage airplanes.

 

This is a perfect example of how banners can be used in so many ways. I love the use of it to dress up the food table.

 

How sweet is this airplane cake? The smash cake is always the best part of the first birthday.

 

This printable airplane party package includes a high chair banner. They are the perfect addition for those great cake photos.

 

A sweet red toy plane and balloons make a cute centerpiece. Add some coloring pages for the party guests to keep them occupied during the slower times of the party.

 

Custom signs are always available to match any of our party themes.

 

Personalized favor tags saying thank you from the birthday boy are a great way to send your guests off.

 

You can find the matching printable airplane birthday party package and invitation in my etsy shop.

This customer party is so much fun. There is something magical about a sweet tea party! This party features our printable Tea Party decoration package

 

The Tea party happy birthday banner features some pinks and blues with a mix of polka dots and stripes. I love it against this paisley backdrop.

 

Cupcakes in cute tea cup wrappers are the cutest touch. A scalloped frame adds a bit of whimsy to a traditional topper. Sweet tea cups, cupcakes, and tea pots are the perfect addition to the cupcakes.

 

What tea party is complete without stacks of tea cups in all shapes, colors and sizes? Mixing and matching adds to the charm.

 

This table is breathtaking. Adding a classic lace tablecloth over the top of a plastic colored tablecloth gives an elegant soft touch of pink to the table and makes for easy clean up. Use different sizes and heights of serving trays on your tablescape.

 

These chair tutus soften the harsh metal folding chair. They can be multi purpose serving as a party favor for the guests to take home.

 

How beautiful are these place settings? A mix of paper and china makes this table budget friendly. I love the look of the pop of color with the elegant china.  Check your local goodwill for great deals on mix and match china pieces. 

 

Every tea party needs finger foods. Mix and match sweet and savory foods of all kinds to create a lunch for your guests. I love the watermelon cut out with a flower cookie cutter. Beads were glued to the end of toothpicks to make a sparkly server for cheese cubes. Put fruit and veggies in polka dot cups to dress them up.

 

 

Sweet pearls dress up the place setting and the girls will be so excited to receive them. 

 

Our printable Tea Party printable centerpiece circles make a cute display on any table. The metal tea cup used is amazing!

 

The girls decorated these tea party hats with faux flowers. The hats are made from paper plates and bowls. So creative!

 

The bases for these purses were made from card board boxes and decorated by the girls as well.

 

So sweet!

 

At the end of the party each girl took home a box with the leftover goodies.

 

I love all of the special details that were incorporated into this party!

For my twins 7th birthday they requested a Rescue Bot party. I had actually avoided this theme for the last 3 years as there is NOTHING available for the theme. They have been in love with them for years and I really wanted to give them the theme they wanted. We did not want grown up transformers. I finally found some art work online and decided to make my own.

I started with a basic Rescue Bots welcome sign. My boys have this on their bedroom door now. This balloon wreath I found on pinterest by Abstract Grace. I love that it can be used for any birthday in the family. It is also able to be customized by changing the colors to fit your theme. It was super easy to assemble.

I knew that I wanted a party table. We are lucky to have a great deck in our backyard. We set up tables for the kids to eat at to keep the mess outdoors. On one end I set up this Rescue Bot display and a gift table. Being outside does not mean you have to skip out on decor. The boys Rescue Bot figures and fire station made a great display.

I wanted the characters front and center on the Resuce Bot cupcake toppers. We went with a light blue starburst background so the bright characters would pop. I added a few logos as well.

For the Rescue Bot Happy Birthday banner I wanted the characters and colors to be bright and bold. I love how it turned out.

For centerpieces my boys had large transformers we placed on the tables. We added some balloons to mason jars filled with paper shreds. What party is complete without balloons?

My boys wanted to play party games at their Rescue Bot Birthday Party. We created a Rescue Bot obstacle course. They had to rescue a stuffed kitten from a tree, race up then slide down the fire station(play structure). run across a ring maze,Obstacle Course

Shoot the Deceptaconcans with nerf gun,Obstacle Course

 

Use their robot hands to transport a ball, then race back to their team. The kids loved the obstacles. They spent most of the time doing the stations over and over.Obstacle Course

 

My boys also wanted a “pin the” game. The transformer party games I could find did not work for the number of kids I had. I made a large sign and created a transformer logo sticker for each kid to place over the logo on the sign. It worked perfectly.

Last was the always loved pinata. I got this one from www.walmart.com.

Overall it was such a fun party and fairly easy to make happen. The boys had a blast. In my opinion a party where kids can run around outside is the best kind of party.

This baby shower was one of my favorites. I helped a friend with the decor to celebrate her sister(my friend) and new nephew on the way. Her nursery was a fox theme so we went with a woodland fox themed baby shower. 158-3

 

This little guy is so sweet! I love this fox cake with a cute flag bunting. A wood slice is the perfect stand to compliment our woodland theme.

We had lots of fun food for this woodland baby shower. Accents of pine cones, woven trays, and burlap gave a rustic feel to the elegant platters.154

Dipped marshmallows, jam tarts, mini banana cream pies, mini cheesecakes.food-2

 

These adorable acorn cookies are such a fun addition. Hershey’s kisses, mini golden oreos, and chocolate chips make these tiny little treats.180

 

Forest animal ginger cookies.

Create a space for your guests to leave gifts and leave a note for baby. For this shower guests signed a Dr. Suess fox book for baby to keep. 172

 

My favorite part of baby showers is making personalized decor that can be used in their nursery.  The host created this great fox canvas mimicking the arrow pattern from the decor and the word fox contrasting in a pop of orange. Also featured was a framed printable with the baby’s name and meaning. The adorable fox canvas toy box was a gift.

Our printable fox baby shower centerpiece is also a fun addition to any nursery after the party. Add a little twine and kraft colored crinkle paper to a metal tin to complete the look.124

 

A fireplace is a great place for banners to be featured. We used the woodland animal printable circles to create a mini banner along with more triangles strung together.114

 

Paper mache latters are easily dressed up to be a statement piece with just a little paint. Another great gift for the mommy to be. The base kraft color of the letters ties into the rustic woodland feel.118

 

I created a printable bingo card for the baby shower game. Have guests write in gifts they think the mommy to be will open. As she opens presents they can mark off the ones they got correct. 5 across makes BINGO.142

 

A cute chalkboard is a great way to reserve mom’s special chair for gift opening. 177
