My sweet little Evie turned 4 in March.
I asked her what theme she’d like for her party and she Mermaid Butterfly Frozen. Wasn’t sure how to pull that one off, so I took her to Michael’s and convinced her to do a Rustic Floral theme. She wasn’t really sure what that meant, but I showed her the pretty papers I would be using along with the flowers and she gave me the thumbs up. 😉 I wanted to think of an original theme for the party and after seeing all the fun galvanized products at Michael’s, I knew I could incorporate them with some flowers and make it cute and special for my little girl.
Here is a closer look at what I did…
To get things started I head to the scrapbook paper section and picked out pretty papers that I thought looked good together. Pinks, turquoise, gray and yellow were the main winning colors. From there I decided to make some Paper Accordion Fans (for a tutorial go HERE.) I knew I’d need a few of them and made several 12″ fans. I also made a few smaller fans to add to the wall.
I had also seen these galvanized letters and knew I wanted to use them as well. I found some frames for them and spray painted them. I then stuck some of the scrapbook paper behind them and love how they turned out.
I also added a paper banner that was already assembled and added that to the backdrop.
And don’t think I got all crazy and stuck hole all over our walls for our partyscape. I used COMMAND strips – they’re my best friend!! ;D
From there I added some more galvanized products including these awesome letters and this serving tray I filled with treats.
I added some more treats and also made sure to pick up some fake flowers in the Michael’s floral department to give it a pretty flower-y touch.
My little Evie just loved it all! Obviously, this was just the treats section of her little party, but we all know that’s every kid’s favorite part of the party, right?! 😉
I sure love throwing little parties for the kids. It’s just a little way to show my love on their special day. 😉
