Her Party!

The girl wanted a jewelry party for her 3rd birthday.  So, not quite sure what an almost three year old's idea of a jewelry party was, I decided to put my own spin on it.

Everything was based around a fabric that I found at Hobby Lobby.   Her birthday dress was made from this main fabric, I used this pattern.  It was a little short, so I guess it's more of a birthday shirt!  It was still really cute, regardless.

I used the same fabric for a little table runner to go under the cupcake tower.  The runner used the main fabric with a few coordinating fabrics to make varying sized circles on a brown background.  I also used this guide to make paper globes with the same colors.   I think one of my favorite parts were the paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling.  So pretty.

The cupcakes were vanilla, from my favorite recipe, with vanilla frosting covered in sparkly sugar with rings on top.  There had to be jewelry somewhere!!  I'll show you just how I made them later this week.

It was a gorgeous day here, so we grilled hamburgers and had a yummy outdoor lunch.  The kids played outside and found lots of worms.

Overall, it was a lot of fun.  The food, the colors, and spending time with friends and family.  Great party.

  1. That fabric is a great inspiration. The colors of the party look so wonderful. I've used that pattern and have also found it to be short. Boo. But your sweetie looks adorable in her dress/shirt/tunic!

  2. Thanks, I like the dress, but I will definitely add on to the length next time. I love the colors, I told my husband that those paper globes are going to stay up there...for a little while. lol.

  3. it sure was a great day! and all your special touches were great.

  4. Thanks Bonnie!! So glad you and the girls were able to come!!!

  5. I love the jewels on the cupcakes! So cute!

  6. It sounds like a really lovely party! We're having some sort of ice cream-themed party, whenever I figure out what exactly I'm going to do with that. Mama's interpretation of a three-year-old's wishes, eh? :)

  7. Exactly!! I think that they're pretty much pleased with anything, as long as cake and ice cream are involved. Plus, it's just fun for us to plan isn't it?!
