Moana Necklace Craft

by Jillian Leslie on

Moana was one of my all-time favorite movies of last year. So if you're thinking of throwing a Moana party and need a fun activity for your guests, how about making this Moana necklace craft? I think they look beautiful!

Moana Necklace Craft

What you need:
  • Hemp cording (dark brown and tan)
  • Pearl acrylic paint
  • Silver paint pen (fine tip)
  • Aqua stone (found mine at Joann’s)
  • Pearls (optional, I did not use,but you can!)
Directions:

Start by using your silver paint pen to draw the wavy line across the top of your stone.

Fill in the top portion of the stone with your pearl acrylic paint. I added multiple layers of paint. Make sure to let each layer dry before adding another.

Acrylic paint added to the stone | CatchMyParty.com

Once the pearl paint has dried completely, you can use your fine tip silver paint pen to draw the design. Be careful not to press too hard when drawing the design. I went over my design twice. Dry completely.

Design drawn using a fine tip silver paint | CatchMyParty.com

Set the stone aside.

Cut two pieces of hemp cording, 2x as long as you want your necklace to be. One strand for each color. Fold each strand in half and line up the folds at the top. Tie a knot.

Tape the knot down so it holds the necklace in place. Place the two tan pieces of hemp together in the middle. Place both brown pieces of hemp on either side of the tan strands. Begin by taking the left piece of dark brown hemp and crossing it over to the right side (on top of the two tan strands). 

Tying a knot | CatchMyParty.com

Take the right dark brown hemp strand and place it on top of the left. Grab the end of the right strand and pull it under the two tan strands in the middle. Continue to take the strand and pull it up through the loop you made on the left side.

Repeat this process, alternating sides. Next, start with taking the right hand side piece of dark brown hemp and crossing it over to the left side. Continue creating your knots until you reach the middle of your necklace. Slide your Moana stone onto the two tan hemp strands up to the middle. Tie one of your knots below the stone, pulling to tighten.

Repeat the process of knot tying on the alternate side | CatchMyParty.com

Continue on with the knots below the stone until you’ve reached the end of your necklace!

I showed my nine-year-old daughter E.T. a few weeks ago and she hated it. I couldn't believe it. It was one of my favorite movies growing up and she said it was slow... E.T.? E.T. phone home? This was definitely one of those moments when you realize you don't see the world through your kids' eyes.

Champagne Mojitos

by Jillian Leslie on

If you want to add a twist to your traditional champagne this New Year's Eve, think about serving champagne mojitos!

Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails. I love the tangy lime, the cool mint, and the kick from the rum. And with champagne, they are even more delicious! Plus, they're simple to make...

Champagne Mojitos

Ingredients:
  • Rum
  • Champagne
  • Fresh mint
  • Lime wedges
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon aromatic bitters
  • Sparkling white sugar
  • Light corn syrup
Directions:

Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat until the mixture simmers. Remove from heat and stir until all sugar has been dissolved. Cool to room temperature.

When your sugar water is cooled, add 1 teaspoon of aromatic bitters. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine, 2-3 lime wedges, 1 oz rum, 4-5 fresh mint leaves and ½ oz of sugar water mixture.

Muddle the mixture by pressing down on the mint leaves and limes wedges to release juice and aroma. Set aside.

Grab two shallow cups or bowls. In one bowl pour a small amount of corn syrup. In the second bowl put some of the sparkling white sugar.

Dip the rim of your champagne flute into the corn syrup. Let the remaining syrup drip off. Next, place the syrup lined rim into the sparkling sugar. Pretty, right!?

Champagne Mojitos | CatchMyParty.com

Pour the mint and lime mixture into your sparkling sugar rimmed champagne flute. Top with champagne. Add a sprig of mint and a lime wedge to the rim of your flute. Serve with a straw.

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar Party Ideas

by Jillian Leslie on

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar Party Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

I love celebrating New Year's Eve, especially with friends!

So when Party City asked me to style a New Year's Eve table, I jumped at the chance.

I wanted to fill my party with glitz, glam, and a fun bubbly bar! But I wanted to make sure the New Year's Eve champagne bar party ideas would be simple to implement and low stress.

So here's how I did it...

TABLE BACKDROP

I hung alternating silver and gold doorway curtains on my wall using thin nails.

Then I blew up giant 2017 mylar balloons with helium, tied ribbons to the bottoms, and taped them to the floor.

But you don't need helium to do this. Just blow them up, tie a ribbon to the tops, and hang them from the ceiling.

BUBBLY BAR

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar Party Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

For the bubbly bar, I used this champagne bar decorating kit. It had everything I needed. It came with the "bubbly bar" garland, all the signs, and lots of the table decor.

I also added these gold & silver star decorations. Instead of hanging them. I laid them out on my table to add a touch of sparkle. I also used flameless gold and silver votives on my table to add some flickers of light.

I wanted one area of my bubbly bar to be for the champagne and fixings, and the other area for the desserts.

For the champagne, I put out both brut rose and prosecco. I recommend different types of champagne to give your guests a choice (plus I think the colors of the brut and prosecco look gorgeous together).

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar | CatchMyParty.com

Next, I put out three bottles of juice (grape, orange, and strawberry punch), plus blueberries, sugar cubes (to go with the hard alcohol), raspberries, strawberries, and mint.

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar | CatchMyParty.com

I used mini white plastic oval bowls to display my fixings!

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar | CatchMyParty.com

I recommend setting up an area for hard liquor. This is for those guests who want to add something a little more "exciting" to their champagne. I put these on a side table decorated with fun gold accents.

New Year's Eve Champagne Bar | CatchMyParty.com

EASY DESSERTS

For desserts, I bought two cakes that I decorated with signs from the bubbly bar set. Cute, right?

Here's the strawberry coconut cake.

I bought madeleine cookies and dipped the edges in black candy melts, then sprinkled them with candy pearls.

They were delicious and so easy to make.

I bought little shortcakes and filled them with whipped cream and berries.

I also I made sugar cookies, covered them with cookie icing, and topped them with silver and gold sprinkles.

On a few of the cookies I used my black food marker to write "2017." I loved how they turned out.

And so did my daughter, Lainey!

PHOTO BOOTH PROPS

No New Year's Eve party is complete without a photo booth and props!

This black, gold & silver New Year's party kit had everything! It came with hats, crowns, and noise makers. I just laid them out on my gold side table to let guests pick.

To create a glam photo booth, I just hung up some gold metallic floral sheeting. Then I put on a hat and started taking selfies.

The fun of a champagne bar is letting your guests make their own cocktails just the way they like! I find that it adds a touch of whimsy to your party.

And if your guests are wearing hats while they're doing it... all the better!

We're having friends over for New Year's Eve, so all these decorations are staying up in my house until the 31st.

I'm loving all the gold and silver in my dining room. I feel like I'm living with Elvis and Liberace. What an flamboyant way to ring in the New Year!

Party supplies I used:

If you throw a New Year's Eve party please add it to Catch My Party so I can show it off. Also, check out all that Party City has to offer. There’s no party like a Party City party!

This post is sponsored by Party City, but all opinions, ideas, glitz and glam are all mine!
