    Beautiful party! I have two questions- if you are able to contact me through the site- where did you find your witch and tin man hats? And how did you do the center of your red poppies? I have been working on both of these and was excited to see you had figured it out!

    Sorry for the delay! I just saw the comment. I spray painted regular party hats with chrome spray paint to make the tin man hats. I used the same hats for the witch, but cut a circle out of black 12x12 scrapbook paper. The inner circle was cut slightly smaller than the diameter of the bottom of the hat, then I cut slits up to the actual hat diameter. Then fold the slits up into the inside of the hat and hot glue. Afterwards I sprayed the whole thing black. Originally both the tin man hats and witch hats were red party hats from my daughter's second birthday party.

    Oh, I ordered the poppies from WhimsyPie on Etsy, but later made some for another party. The center is folded separately and ends are cut like fringe (straight cuts). A smaller center is folded and V cut (with a point). place the smallest on top, then fringe-cut, then main flower and wire everything together. Open everything starting from the very center (V-cut tissue). It's actually super-simple, but it was worth it to me to order them from Etsy.

    Thank you! I definitely will revise my poppies with those directions. I did find silver party hats and made some witch hats out of cardboard (I think spray painting was the right idea though!!). Our party is at the end of July- will post pics. Very inspired by yours :)

    Hi I loved this party so much, I want to save the concept for when my little one is a little older. I was wondering (before I forget), if you would be willing to share with me the graphic that you used for the signage (the watercolor rainbow effect), the favor bags, etc. I really liked how that turned out. Would you be able to send them graphics to me as a PDF that I could then take and get printed when I go to use this theme in the future? You could email them to me at nwoodland@compas-inc.com I would be most appreicaiate and I would be willing to pay you for the use of them if necessary. Thanks so much for sharing your party! Great inspiration! Nicole

    Thanks very much. I made the invitations. The envelopes are regular A7 envelopes and I printed the yellow brick road as a watermark when I printed the addresses. The glitter paper is scrapbook paper from Micheal"s cut into 5X7 cards. For the envelope liner I scanned my daughter's rainbow and printed it on a color printer. Using the envelope as a template, I cut out the liner and glued it inside. Hope that helps!

    I ordered the envelopes from Cards & Pockets and I designed and printed the invitations myself. I adhered the invite to a piece of red sparkle card stock that I purchased at Michael's and cut to size (5x7).

    I adore these goody bags & would love to make them for a Wizard of Oz themed event I have up and coming. Can you tell me how you put them together & where you got the Heart, Brains, Courage graphics? I also really liked the Animal Cookie - Lions, Tigers & Bears bag toppers! So very creative and adorable! Anything you can share would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Karen, I thought the goody bags would be so simple and easy, but they turned out to be a giant pain the the butt! Here's the process: I pleated and stapled rainbow crepe paper into circles slightly smaller than the small white doilies. I then folded over a piece of the same crepe paper and v-cut the ends for the streamers. Hot glued the streamers to the back of the doily, hot glued the circle rosette to the top of the doily and hot glued the graphic to the top of the rosette. I then used small clothespins to clip them to the top of a plain old brown sandwich bag. The graphics were adapted from a movie poster image that I found online and punched out with a large scalloped paper punch from Micheal's. I very likely have the file and can email it to you. Same goes for the animal crackers file - that project was super easy. The hardest part of the goody bags was making the crepe paper rosettes. Folding and stapling and stapling and folding - then they'd be too big and I'd have to start over. My fingers were killing me. I'd only do it again if it were a small party. I think I ended up making over 40 goody bags and by the time I was done I never wanted to see another roll of crepe paper or a stapler again!
