It’s time to highlight some fabulous parties again! I’m always pleased to receive emails, links, and photos of your creative celebrations. You can also share photos on our Facebook page.
This first feature takes us outside for a beautifully executed picnic by Lisa of Moore Minutes. She put so much thought into all the food presentation, as well as the set up itself. Lided jars transport salads and parfaits perfectly, while sandwiches and fried chicken are individually wrapped. Bottled drinks are served in their own personal ice bucket, and vintage soda crates add old fashioned charm. Visit Lisa’s post for more of this gorgeous setting.
Next, Rebecca hosted this sweet birthday party for her daughter, with a fun pioneer theme. She made aprons for all the girls to wear, and incorporated coordinating fabric bunting, and lid covers for the homemade jam favors. The cake is stunning with the addition of real flowers as part of the decor. Visit Rebecca’s blog, Faith, Family, Home, Friends for more details on this lovely party.
Mandy at Everyday Obsessions hosted a bridal shower for a friend and was inspired by this poolside table from Amy Atlas. She did a wonderful job recreating the green and white look with some delicious treats, natural elements, and favor boxes. I particularly love the single-serve pudding glasses with spoon tied on. See more details here.
Genevieve is one of my facebook/blogging buddies, originally from Canada, but now residing in Pennsylvania. To celebrate her roots she threw a Happy Canada Day party with lots of cool details. She created a vintage vibe with an old window frame, and distressed wood boxes & sign. The Canadian flag graced everything from the backdrop to straw tags, favor tags, and decorated cookies. Check out her blog post on Celebrate Today the Superchick Way and stay tuned for her DIY tutorials she’ll share soon.
Last but not least is this fabulously feminine Parisian style birthday party designed by Melissa and Kellie at Icing Designs. This lovely DIY party is perfect for the girly-girl who loves pink. Lots of paper rosettes were used, as well as lace and frills, to decorate the space. French pastries filled the dessert table along with some adorable Eiffel Tower chocolate pops. See more of the sweet details on their blog post.
