Julia's Birthday Party

Cute Julia turned 1!
      Nadia, Juju's momy loves to make crafts and she is really good at it! Thinking about her daughter's party, she made a research about themes and colors and then she chose this beautiful paper plate from Party City as a "starter" to the decoration. (I'll put the pic's invitation created by her soon).
     Nadia is always tunned in bellebum's blog and ordered some decoration suplies for Julia's birthday!(I think she liked my help in her baby shower. Thanks Nadia for ordering from me again!)
     It was really fun to create the paper suplies matching the plate. Green and Pink polka dots, squares, and striped papers for the "Happy Birthday" banner and candy boxes.
     For the USA party, she wanted to give the kids a party favor that she saw here in the blog before (check Belle Bum's Blog Party to see the party favor), mini Hershey chocolates wrapped in a cute paper and plastic bag with ribbons. BUT she came up with the idea of using the letters of Julia's name in each chocolate!
     For the Brazil's party, she asked me a coordinated paper decor to close the party favors, which were plastic bags with toys for the kids. (also from the blog - check the moving party)
The most important thing is that both parties were full of hapiness and joy!!!
Hope you like the ideas...

Spring Gift

That card and flower vase can be an invitation + party favor for a party, or an invitation + center piece for an event or birthday party, or a card or thank you note + gift for a friend of yours. I have used stamp and quilling technique in this project. Hope you like!

Tissue Paper Pom-Pom

These pom-poms created by Martha Stewart are so cute, they appear to float in the air. I will make some for an upcomming party in September! Learn how to make them!

Step 1

Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inch-wide accordion folds, creasing with each fold.
