We made it through another Smith girls' birthday party. I have to admit that it is getting more difficult to merge the girls' birthdays together. My 8 year old wanted a super girly spa party with make overs and mani-pedis, while my 5 year old wanted .....wait for it...I know you will be shocked...you will never believe...a Frozen party. I thankfully was able to talk them into a simple fun color me happy party!
It was captured by the most amazing photographer, Jennifer Conrad with Jennifer Conrad Photography. I do not know how she does it, but she is able to capture the feel of the day in those photos.
I made simple yarn wreaths with the girls initials for the front door.
I tried to be super thrifty with this party. The rainbow backdrop was a simple collecting of plastic table clothes. I was amazed I was able to get all the colors I needed. The Taste The Rainbow sign was made with painted chip board letters. My favorite detail by far was the super tall cake stand. Again..my girls stood at odds with the cake..one wanted cupcakes, the other a "real" cake. The cake stand was made from colorful plates, candle sticks, a little (or a lot) of adhesive and prayer.
I made "paint chip" utensil holders by gluing together colorful paint chips to make pockets. I have to admit..I felt a little shady in the hardware store collecting all the colors, but I love how they turned out.
I had a sweet friend make the tutus. The girls loves wearing them! I used pantone chips for thank you notes (again thrifty!).
All the girls took home custom monogram bags to match the theme of the party along with a colorful hair bow. If you follow my facebook page, you can see that I have become obsessed with custom bags, so these fit right in!
This turned out to be a great party on a beautiful day!
Until next time...celebrate perfectly
