Great News!  All my Ready To Ship Pinwheels in my shop are on SALE!  Snag a deal before the sale ends and add as set of fun and colorful summer pinwheels to your spring and summer celebration or outdoor event.

Before I show you how you can display your pinwheels at your next party, stop by and browse my new shop on MERCARI!

 I am now offering lots of cute stamps, exclusive dies, like this swan die below that you could make so many beautiful cards and gifts with in your cutting machine, plus exclusive shaker card kits, embellishment boxes, and many other crafting supplies!  Keep coming back too – I will be adding tons more for the coming holidays for 4th of July, Halloween, and Christmas.

Now for some stunning parties featuring PINWHEELS!

Pinwheels are perfect at any event, celebration or party and these Summer Designs coordinate to any themed birthday or baby shower.

This year I am only offering a limited supply of each set of designs in my shop- HERE

Pinwheels are perfect hanging on the wall behind the party table wall or draped across the front of the party table.

 Pinwheels were cleverly incorporated as favors but still as part of the party table background at this butterflies and pinwheels party.  How fun and easy to create!

Pinwheels are also ideal as table centerpieces – add them to vases or recycled bottles.

Pinwheels are also perfect as wedding decorations- use them as table numbers or signs at a wedding or large event.  Give one to each of your guests at the reception check-in with their table number in the center of each pinwheel and then each guest can take a pinwheel home as a memorable keepsake from your wedding day. 

Pinwheels are so fun on cakes and cupcakes too as toppers!

Cupcakes, polka dots and pinwheels go together perfectly!

Pinwheels and the beach are a great pair too for fun in the sun.

Tons of bright spinning pinwheels in all sizes are available in my shop – PINWHEEL PRETTIES

DIY PARTY DECORATIONS – FLOWER BALLOONS

FLOWER BALLOONS DIY PROJECT
FlowerBalloon

These daisy flower balloons are so easy to make.  They would look stunning at a little girl’s birthday party or at a baby shower! Great as a retail window display too!  Make them in different colors too! No helium needed! Read on for the easy DIY –

You’ll need either 7″ or 12″ balloons in your colors of choice.  I suggest buying at least two different colors, so you have a contrasting color for your center balloon.  The larger balloons will create a puffier style of flower, rather than the daisy flowers shown here, which are made with the smaller 7″ balloons.

These are fairly easy to assemble.   Let’s get started with the step-by-step directions:

Step 1: Cut two circle templates from chipboard or a cardboard box will work too.  Cut one circle at approximately 6″ across and the other circle at 4″ across.  I find that using a bowl or tupperware container and flipping it over on your cardboard or chipboard and tracing around the edge makes it so easy to make a perfect circle!

Step 2: Blow up five balloons (for the flower petals), make sure they fit through the 6″ hole circle template. This helps to make sure all your balloons are the same size and your balloon flower petals will look consistent.  Easy trick! Next, blow up your center balloons (for creating the flower center), making sure they fit through the smaller 4″ circle template.  A balloon hand pump inflator is great for blowing up balloons and can make it go much faster.

Step 3: Tie two or your inflated balloons together. Create two sets of these double balloons as pictured above.

Step 4: Tie a third inflated balloon together, on just one set of your double balloons.

Step 5: Tie two of the contrasting colors of balloons together, for your centers. Keep in mind, you want your flower centers to show on either side of the full balloon flowers, so you will want two center balloons in a contrasting color.

Step 6: Wrap the double balloon petals around the set of three balloons at the center. Spread out the balloons so they lay flat. Now you can see they have formed a flower petals and a complete flower shape.

Step 7: Wrap the contrasting colors of double balloons, for the flower centers, around the five balloon petals once, so there’s one on each side.  Use clear fishing line to hang the flowers or ribbon or baker’s twine works great too.   These look great hanging behind a party table or anywhere at the party!

ONESIE CUPCAKES HOW TO DIY

1396326701.202455.IMG_6059

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • 4 onesies (most come in a pack of 4)
  • 4 receiving blankets (most also come in a pack of 4)
  • 4 regular size coffee filters (base diameter 3.25″)
  • 4 rubber bands
  • 4 pieces of ribbon
  • 1 cupcake box (Wilton’s offers these as window treat boxes in a pack of 3 at size 4″ x 8″ x 8″)

HOW TO MAKE ONESIE CUPCAKES:

  1. Fold your receiving blanket lengthwise into thirds. This will be the base of your cupcake.
  2. Gather your onesie as best as you can (hold with one hand and poke into your fist).  This will be the “frosting” of the cupcake. I made sure the applique shape was at the top so that there was a pop of color.
  3. Wrap your receiving blanket around and around your onesie, starting at the bottom. Secure with a rubber band.
  4. Place it inside of a coffee filter (the “wrapper” of the cupcake) and tie a ribbon around it.
  5. Repeat four times to make all four of your onesie cupcakes.  Or make as many as you want for shower decor or more gifts for the guest of honor.

These are deliciously cute laid out on a table at the baby shower or in a basket.

Or add them inside your window treat box and give them as a gift to the mother-to-be at the shower.

Decorate your window treat box with some fun colorful washi tape (polka dots are fun as shown on these) and by finishing up  your box by tying it up a bow with some added ribbon and a gift tag.

They almost look good enough to EAT! Huzzah!
