When my sweet friend, Bird, invited me to contribute to her Spring/Summer issue of Bird’s Party magazine, I was thrilled, excited, honored and a bit nervous!
This was my first time ever taking part in such an amazing magazine!
Everything came together when I got the help from some very talented ladies!
Here are the details of Make a Wish Party for my daughter's 9th Birthday:
Inspired by dandelions on an open field, with a color scheme of aqua and white, I created a whimsical make a wish birthday party for my daughter's 9th Birthday.
Dandelions were the focus of this party with lots of DIY crafts and decorations.
The dessert table was full of yummy and incredible treats by fabulous vendors that made the sweet table stunning!
I used photo boxes with dandelion print on them to display the dandelion marshmallows and cake pops. I wanted to create the feeling that they were in a real dandelion field.
DIY dessert table backdrop: made out of foam board covered with fabric and I added the WISH banner from Bird's Party Make a Wish collection.
I wanted to create a magical escape for the girls to enjoy their treats, make crafts and just simply enjoy each other's company. Using white fabric strips, fishing line and the trees as poles, I made a marquee in the back yard where I set up a table on the grass and used pillows as chairs. I decorated the marquee with DIY poms and paper lanterns.
DIY Birthday Wreath:foam wreath, yarn, paper flowers and cupcake toppers from Bird's Party Make a Wish collection.
DIY dandelions displayed on the dessert table:simply hot glue white feathers to a round styrofoam and glue the foam into a floral wire.
DIY Party Favors:
Each girl received a mini canvas purse with a notebook and puff ball pen, a puff ball hair clip and an artist apron.
DIY stenciled mini canvas purses and apron: dandelions stencil, fabric paint, stencil brush, boa and rhinestone.
DIY Make a Wish Wood Sign: I used different sizes and fonts of letter stencils to create the Wish sign.
