Need inspiration for a spring birthday party? Here is the place to come to seek out decorations and food ideas. We have been building up to it all week. I have wanted to give you tutorials so you don’t look at the end product and feel overwhelmed about accomplishing it yourself. We had so much fun both creating the party and then celebrating. I think one of my favorite moments in the process is when I’m in the final stages of decorating. You have a vision, and when it’s finally coming together, it’s a really rewarding moment. The other favorite moment is the gasp of the girls as they enter the room for the first time. They went to bed before we started decorating the wall and table (pictured above) or the eating table, tissue paper pom pom and flower garland (pictured below) were put together. The energy and excitement before bed was obvious (mostly because they kept getting out of bed), but I love when they enter the room in the morning. It feels like Christmas. I have given a tutorial for everything but the flower wall. I will be giving you that tutorial in the next couple of days. The color inspiration actually came from the take home round boxes (pictured above) I found at the Dollar Tree. I filled these with a bunch of other little spring related children items I found at the Dollar Tree as the take home gifts for our guests. They were also able to take home their butterfly headbands.
The table for eating was in another room. I wrapped the table in white wrapping paper I found at the Dollar Tree. I bought Gerber daisies that I can now plant in our flower pots outside. My husband wrapped the ugly plant container they come in in green paper. The butterfly head band and orange, yellow and green circle placemats I also found at the Dollar Tree. I had the pink napkins from the pink baby shower I did for my sister-in-law.
I hope you caught my tutorial for the DIY Pottery Barn Garland and Tissue Paper Pom Poms. I didn’t get a great picture of it, but if you look under the table you will see that I found some turf on remnant clearance at our local hardware store that I used as a rug for under the table.
Another fun component of the decor was serving the food on plates lined with turf. As mentioned, I had purchased this textile on clearance at my local hardware store. I used it for the plates and a rug under the eating table.
Once we were all decorated and prepped, it was time for the party to begin.
