On Monday, I posted about the food at the party. Today we will focus on the decorations that I spent many late nights and months putting together. Of course I probably could have spent many MORE months planning and added more decorations but there is only so much time. Oh well onto the next party I am planning ;)
I got the idea for these balloon wreaths at How Does She. I think mine must be fuller than hers because I used WAY more balloons than she did. I made at least two extra trips to Walmart because I thought I had enough but turns out I didn't. This was a super easy project but it was pretty time consuming. I guess mainly because I had to do two....story of my life ;) I justified the time it took because I know that I can use them in the future.
The wreaths look really small in this picture but they are really average size, my doors are huge.
To make it more personal for my boys, I made these Sesame Street signs with their names on it. How perfect that I have two doors right?
I made the sign using my Silhouette. I just cut a green and yellow rectangle, a green and yellow circle and glued the circle behind the rectangle where only half was showing. I used the Arial font for the letters and number. Real scientific right?
I also made these Sesame Street characters using my Silhouette to hang on my pot rack. I used the scalloped circle to make the faces and different shapes( circles and ovals) to make the eyes and mouths.
I like to use my hanging pot rack for anything but it's original purpose of hanging pots.
I made the banner also. I cut the circle and letters on my Silhouette and attached together with ribbon.
This next banner is the only party decoration that I didn't make but it is pretty special too. It was the banner from my 3rd birthday party. Yes my mom really kept it all this time and no she is not some crazy hoarder ;)
The boys got ahold of this banner one day and I was chasing after them saying "Noo you can't play with that it is vintage"...true story :)
I made these for centerpieces for the island. The lollipops were favors for the kids. I made the characters the same way I made the one that were hanging.
I am sure all the parents loved me for the lollipops ;)
