Birthday Wishes And DIY Dreams

For the past few years I have been assisting my good friend Joyce with her super birthday parties for her little one.  I wrote about last year's party on this post.  This year her baby girl turned three and there was no way her shindig would be anything less than fabulous.  Seems like my friend has been stepping up her DIY game, and of course I was happy enough to assist her with her party inspiration.

Purchased backdrop and printed letters on banners and doily name.

Pinwheel banner, tissue paper pom poms, and lace ball lanterns.

Joyce's husband made the PVC pipe photo booth backdrop especially
for the big day.  How cute is that?

Of course a photo booth isn't complete without props from
Get Creative Juice.

Even though the dessert table had to be minimized because of
weather issues, as you can see it was huge in presentation.

This was one of my contributions to the super chic party, a DIY
initial frame made from cardboard.  More info to come!

Yummy cupcakes on embellished cupcake stands.

Rice Krispie pops with itty bitty flags.

Delicious homemade chocolate pops.

An activity table was available for a house full of children under the
age of eight.

Holy moly tissue paper piƱata!  Complete with a pull down wall.
No blindfolds and baseball bat required!

As you all can see, every decoration for the party were all handmade.  With careful pinning, time management (we were already talking about it in January), and budgeting my dear friend was able to pull off another wonderful party for her daughter that the children and adults enjoyed.  Of course the birthday girl was all smiles that day!

Wow, that is so elaborate, I'm sure everyone really enjoyed it!

When i was little all i cared about was the cake, and every year it had to be a different theme, like a bunny, a dog, ect... my mom always rose to the occasion.

Everything looks so beautiful. Were the pom-poms and pinwheels made by you and your friend? And all of the desserts looks so delicious. I so want a cupcake now.

What a lovely party! The decorations looked wonderful! That 3 pinata was cool, so were the homemade chocolate (?) pops, and the cardboard C!
