Sweet Easter Bunny Hop Party

Hello friends! Easter is almost here and I am very excited to share with you our new Easter “Bunny Hop” Party! If you are looking for an easy set up with some fun diy’s, this party is for you! There’s also loads of ideas and little crafts for your kiddos to help out, too! So, “HOP” along for some spring time fun!

I was inspired by our “Easter Brights” printable collection and used all 4 colors that are designed in the printables: yellow, blue, pink, and green.

To keep the set up super easy, I filled the table with cupcakes, mini cupcakes, sugar cookies, mini gumballs, and this store bought cake that I added all the toppings at home!

I baked mini donuts, added a few marshmallows for the base, and then began layering mini coconut cupcakes, donuts, and finished it off with a few of our favorite Easter candies! So easy to do!

Sweet little bunny cookies!

If you want to involve your children, have them add little pom poms to lollipop sticks! We styled these with the mini cupcakes. This was my son’s idea and I think they turned out great! It was wonderful to have him help me with this party!

One of the crafts that we did together was make these pinwheels! We added a few to the wall for the backdrop and they also make a cute little centerpiece! Christian decided to place the little pom poms in the center of each pinwheel. These can then be given out as party favors and make fantastic photo props!

For the table setting, we added printable placemats, favor boxes, tiny buckets with Easter eggs, and mason jars filled with colorful juice! So fun! Don’t forget to add a personalized place card at each setting. Children love to see their names!

Adding these daisy cut lids with a paper straw and printable flag adds a special touch to any tablescape!

I found these sweet little favor boxes at a local wholesaler and new they would be perfect for the party. Fill them with any of your favorite Easter candy or treats, add little tag and ribbon and you are set!

Don’t forget to have lots of water on hand, too! No one says no to water when they are this cute!

A few more photos to share…

Thank you for joining me today! Wishing you a Happy Easter!

Strawberry Birthday Party-Berry Sweet Theme

Good morning friends, is it August already? Today I am so happy to share this post with you and maybe we can hold onto summer a little longer! Strawberry birthday parties are one of my absolute favorite parties for girls! You can style this theme is so many different ways. I am thrilled to share with you this unique version with a few added surprises! Are you ready?

I designed a complete printable package using reds, pinks, and with “doilie” & sweet strawberry graphics. The twist on this theme… I added touches of gold throughout the tables making this a very modern, popular look. Gold continues to be a very popular accent color for so many weddings, showers, and birthday celebrations. A little sparkle is always fantastic!

A “berry” sweet dessert table was styled with cupcakes, cookies, and mini  shortcakes. Simple summer flowers were placed in a “lace” rimmed container and also mixed with fresh strawberries on white plates for a very attractive look.

One of the highlights were these absolutely, beautiful, coordinating sugar cookies from Christy at Dolce Custom Cookies. I have been following her amazing talents for for quite some time and was thrilled to be able to work with her on this project. She matched the cookies perfectly with my printable designs. AND… not only are these cookies a true form of art, they are so delicious! The vanilla bean makes these hard to resist…especially when you are styling and photographing! (I can’t wait to work with Christy again!)

Another highlight, are these doilie fondant circles that I MADE! Yes, I did!

mini cakes #1

I purchased Wilton White Fondant  and cut small circles with a scalloped cookie cutter. Using a small circle Wilton tip I carefully punched holes in the fondant to make the doilie! So easy! The sweet fondant strawberries, leaves, and flowers were all made made by Tanya. Do you see the tiny gold peril placed in the centre of the flower? Little touches are what make celebrations so special!

Tanya also made these gorgeous, fondant floral cupcakes! Also adding tiny gold perils! LOVE!

Ruffled vanilla cupcakes with fondant strawberries and printable cupcake toppers are a must for this party!

Adding a gold tassel to the decor is right on trend, too!

A refreshment station with strawberry lemonade served in glass bottles dipped in gold sprinkles will impress guests! Paper straws, personalized water bottle labels, and LOTS of printable decorations add so much fun to birthday parties!

tissue fan #1

I made the very large tissue fan for the backdrop! It makes a perfect focal point for the dessert and refreshment tables! This tissue flowers are very inexpensive to make and can be done in so many different sizes. Let me know if you would like me to post a tutorial!

I also added gold beading in the centre of the tissue flower to tie the gold in with the gold perils in the fondant cupcakes!

Make party hats even more special by adding small tissue flowers and gold beads (same ones that were used in the large flowers!)

Thank party guests with printable tags tied to white paper bags. I used a scrapbook punch along the edges to match the doilie pattern in the printables and sweet desserts!

Place invitations in gold striped paper treat bags when delivering these to your friends and guests. So cute, right?!?!

Sunflower Birthday Party

On a recent trip to the grocery store, I saw the first sunflowers of the season. Sunflowers are one of the simplest flowers, yet they really do brighten your day! They also are nostalgic, often reminding us of the gardens of our grandmothers!

Today I am sharing a Sunflower themed birthday table with coordinating printables that I styled. It is the perfect theme for any birthday party that you plan on celebrating in August or September. Start planning now!
