UPDATE (4/2/15): Did you ever scroll down to see the bottom……APRIL FOOLS’!!!!
Imagine my delight when Clare requested a Peacock-themed party for her 6th birthday. We had some fun handmade ideas but also found many cute peacock products on the market. During our research (a-hem, shopping) we found beautiful items for not only birthday festivities but bridal showers, graduation parties and weddings. Classic peacock motifs don’t seem to be going anywhere soon.Today I’m going to give you a peek at the party. In another post I’ll share all of the product sources. I’m also happy to turn any of the handmade items into a tutorial although everything we did was pretty simple! Just let me know what you would like to know more about in the comments.A few days before the party Clare threw a wrench in the peacock party by requesting a classic “doll” cake. Since I had one for my own sixth birthday and it was one of my favorite birthday memories, I was happy to oblige. I think we pulled in the peacock-theme pretty well. Yes,the peacock princess has a bird on a leash. haOne of Clare’s contributions to the decor was a peacock palace bird house.With our leftover cake batter, I made these easy peacock mini-cupcakes. I really love them. So cute!All of the girls painted and decorated their own birdhouse to take home. I was impress with how hard they all worked on them. I wanted to keep them in a row here on my windowsill.Before the party, Clare took to the craft paper covered table with a peacock feather rubber-stamp. Not only did it add some charm to the tabletop but it helped the birthday girl work out some pre-party gitters.Here the lucky girl in her new peacock feather skirt with lace trim.And here is the poor peacock princess getting her fingers melted off (oops.)In the corner we set up a photobooth and let the girls mug it up with costumes and props. They felt like stars and it ensured that I snapped a pic of each girl with Clare! Of course they are masked so it could become a bit mysterious down the line.Then we played a few classic party games like our Knock ‘Em Down game. Kids love this thing!By combining handmade with store-bought, we saved a little cash and our sanity and created a pretty and fun party to remember. Don’t forget to leave a comment if you want to hear more about these projects and products and I will make sure the info is in the next posts. Happy birthday Clare!
Being a little sister has its challenges, I see that now. Ameli constantly looks up to her sister, imitates her and wants to do the same things. Most of them she can do but there's one she can't - go to preschool. Although she'll start soon, this September wasn't easy for her. Lily went back to school after the summer break and Ameli wanted to join the kids. I wanted to find an idea to make this easier for her, to make her feel like a big girl. And since she likes packing her sisters backpack, I decided to make her a backpack, too.
