Aloha Hawaiian Luau Party

luau blog post-p001In thinking about posting my niece’s 4th Vintage Cowgirl Birthday party that happened last month, I remembered that I hadn’t yet posted her 3rd Birthday Hawaiian Luau.  Custom designed with my spunky and adorable Mia in mind, the collection is bright and happy and the hibiscus flower as the main design!

We assembled the grass cake skirt and it set the tone for the luau candy table.  We hot glue gunned the raffia grass skirt, ribbon and pom poms to a dark wood charger.  It was then placed on a high cake stand…fun and cute!

Bright and colourful candy kabobs were a quick favourite!  I recommend making these the day of and laying them flat until your guests arrive as the candy will fall the longer gravity has its way!  Also in hindsight, I would use extra long lollipop sticks because they are safer for the kids to be walking around with.

Birthday girl Mia, welcomed each of her guests with a a friendly ‘aloha’ and a festive lei.  She also send them home with a ‘mahalo’ treat bag to fill with all the party sweets!

Princess Safari Party

safari blog post-p001Well, a few months ago, I had a custom request to create a mod safari package in pastel colors.  The very sweet and talented photographer, Amy of A Dazzle Day, was looking to create a special first birthday theme for her daughter, Mia and wow! she definitely did not disappoint!  This party is full of so many whimsical and sweet details, I barely know where to begin, but begin I will…

She designed and created the felt birthday hat, but she also cleverly embellished the patterned party hats created for the package.  It is amazing what simple tissue paper can do to spice up a party hat. Note to self…must try this out!

The party tables were full of so many vintage details, this favor table is just so sweet and ecclectic…lace, burlap, rik rak ribbon, all work together so nicely.

Amy designed and handmade all the felt animals and party hat.

Side note: I have used these lollipops at parties I have thrown and you can find them at Micheal’s.  The thank you stickers and ribbon actually come with the lollipops and make for great and affordable party favors!

How adorable, it really is a beautiful party, but there is much more cuteness to come…

Amy layered the water bottle wrapper with a lace doily, which makes for a vintage look.  I can tell she used a glass Starbucks frappuccino bottle.  Washed and cleaned, they are a great size for the kids birthday parties!  These adorable polka dot straws can be purchased from many sellers on Etsy and really add so much to the look.

The cupcake toppers are backed with coordinating tissue rosettes.  The are very simple to make and I plan to post a tutorial on how to create them sometime in the near future.  Amy used the cupcake wrappers provided in the party package and I think they add are really nice finishing touch!

Just when I thought this momma couldn’t be more talented, I find out she actually made these adorable cookies too.  I am very impressed as I have tried my hand at decorating sugar cookies and it does take a fair bit of skill. Very cute!

Thank you so much for sharing your birthday girl’s very special day with us.  Simply adorable and so much love and care put into each and every detail!

Happy celebrating!
