Hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day! Ours was wonderful except, I think I woke up with a chocolate hang over. Worth every piece though.
And now that Valentines Day is over, I can finish up with the Very Hungry Caterpillar saga. Only a few more posts about the caterpillar and I promise I will move on to some fun stuff that has been brewing in my craft room. So here are the highlights from the party....
I set up a little main table with all of the food and goodies. Cupcake stand and toppers post HERE and details about the $20 dollar cake HERE. And those yummy cherry tarts, the recipe is HERE.
I kept it pretty simple. I trimmed the table with water color dots. Same idea as the leaf garland but I painted the card stock in different colors and used my big circle punch. The banner was given to me from a friend but can be purchased at the Eric Carle website.
The drink station had this big number two that I created with the little painted circles. The table was trimmed with the leaf garland. I just love the little caterpillar hiding under the punch. Sun straw toppers printable coming soon.
I decorated the room with a just a few pom poms and of course caterpillars. The lanterns were given to me from a friend but you can buy them on Amazon. You can also just buy balloons and blow them up just a little bit to form perfect circles to create a caterpillar like the one I have crawling on top of the door.
I also wanted to have a banner of pictures from each month so I put that in the framed banner. I printed out a few pictures for the wall using this special paper and had to have a little bling so I glittered her name that I cut out with my Slice.
It was a fun party and we even played a game with the kids, pass the parcel. Cindy enjoyed eating cake, candy, and of course playing with her friends. As a thank you they all took home a little treat, personalized white board and crayons.
That is a picture of her hugging her best friend. They had little matching dresses. I haven't posted a tutorial for the party dress yet but you can find a tutorial for the other dress HERE.
So now that the party is over I guess it's time to start thinking about a theme for next year. She will be old enough to pick by then but I want to give her some choices.... Any ideas?
