The ‘winter onederland’ party theme for a first birthday, is a bit dated and overdone now, so I wanted to share some unique and more out of the ordinary party ideas. I feel like winter babies get the short straw when it comes to their birthday party – most are indoor parties due to colder weather so these months limit outdoor parties and activities.

However, who says, you can’t draw on the beauty of winter and incorporate the surroundings of the season into a winter birthday party? The nutcracker parties, featured above and below with an emphasis on the color pink, are the perfect example for a girl’s birthday, especially if she loves dance or ballet.

Incorporating pastel colors will always pair well with a winter theme.  Snowflakes are of course traditional but not necessary to pull off a winter birthday party.

Be sure to get input from the birthday boy or girl- especially if they are older.  Teens usually want to help plan the party and even decorate!  Let them make some big decisions about the theme and decor each year – it’s a great way to teach them to be a great hostess too!

The soft pastels in the sweets and decor on this food table above, at this teen girl’s party, is fun and whimsical. The added cotton candy puffs on top of the cupcakes are so creative too!  Incorporating the sweater stockings adds an unusual table backdrop as well.

This narwhal party above is the perfect example of using a creative and trendy theme for a winter party. Narwhals have been gaining popularity as a spin off of the unicorn party theme and since they are winter creatures, they work well for a winter party.

Finally, this snowman themed party is traditional and perfect for a winter birthday. Wow! That snowman cake looks simple to make, yet stunning on the table, and yummy.

Party Table Backdrops & Backgrounds

PARTY TABLE BACKDROPS AND BACKGROUNDS

Today is a roundup of inspiration for party table backdrops and backgrounds.  These tablescapes should give you some ideas for setting up your dessert or food table at your next party. Let’s get started with this adorable ladybug party.  How creative are those honeycomb balls with added punched black paper circles made into the ladybug head and antennae and the ladybug spots.  So cute!  Ladybugs are a perfect theme for a summer party too!

This background is a giant printed graphic poster just added to an even larger fabric covered board. I love this idea, but the printing cost may get a little pricey.  Another alternative that would cost less is the fabric covered board below with a small framed birthday sign or letter banner centered in the middle.

I love that they used part of the green vinyl tablecloth as a valance topper at the top of the fabric background. The polka dot balloons in a small bouquet create a balanced height at each side too.

Confetti balloons are all the rage- and just two flanking the back sides of each end of the table create a stunning background with height!  The added floor length balloon tissue tassel garland add a finishing touch.

This bride has simple giant white balloons arranged in an arch with added greenery and florals for a beautiful, yet neutral, photo background.

Paper fans on the wall are always an easy go-to for a party table background- but they can be dressed up with custom cut designs available in The Party Fetti Shop.

A mix of all sizes of pinwheels are so whimsical and super easy to create a party table background.  So easy to create this random arrangement on the wall. Create your own with pinwheels from Pinwheel Pretties.

Last are two entirely simple diy backdrops made with crepe paper streamers.  The added tissue fan above, for the sun, is adorable.  The rainbow streamer backdrop below is so easy too! Seven bright strips of crepe streamer taped to the back of the wall and simply run across the top and front of a basic white tablecloth- would take five minutes to make and so inexpensive.  The top could feature small white balloons or use my cloud tutorial from a previous blog post for  making your own cloud topper.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  I hope these party backdrops have inspired you to start planning your next party!

Remember to stop by any of my shops for all your diy crafting supplies, party decorations and favors and wedding decor.

Pinwheels At A Summer Party Or Wedding

PINWHEEL PARTY FAVORS FOR SUMMER OUTDOOR PARTIES

Happy Friday! I’ve had a whirlwind week, after coming back from vacation.  I opened all my Etsy shops back up and the floodgates opened!  Suddenly, everyone was planning a summer party. Somewhere in between getting my custom orders out the door, I had time to make and add several new sets of pinwheels to the Pinwheel Pretties shop too.  Here are some of the new designs-

I have added several sets of ready to ship mini pinwheels, which are also great as cake toppers or cupcake toppers – but I offer my pinwheels in many different wheel sizes. Oh, and I have boxes of more pinwheels to add to the shop, so more designs are coming soon!  Keep in mind my production time during this busy spring and summer season is 2 weeks but I do offer lots of pinwheels that are ready to ship and can go out in the mail within a few days- Ready To Ship Pinwheels

I just added these today. Perfect for a My Little Pony party!

I’m now offering unicorn pinwheels in pastels and also bright colors.

These are great for a Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse party.

Some adorable prints in little elephants, tiny feet, and onesies – perfect for a gender reveal baby shower!

Any little girl would love these at her Disney Princess party- these feature princess crowns, dresses, and castles.

These will be coming soon in my wedding shop too – I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs

Beautiful flowers and damask designs perfect at any wedding ceremony or a great activity for the kids table at the wedding reception to keep them busy.

Finally, some extra large size pinwheels that I custom created this last week for a bride for her adorable two flower girls to carry down the aisle at her wedding ceremony.  Each one features their names in cursive cut in the center. Love these!  This bride actually shipped this lovely Quartz color cardstock to me to make her pinwheels – since this unusual color is part of her wedding color scheme and I could not find it locally. I was happy to create these for her- they came out stunning!

Be sure to stop by any of my shops for all your party decorating needs or if you are planning a summer wedding-

Pink & Gold Party Decorations

PINK & GOLD PARTY DECORATIONS

Today I am sharing a roundup of stunning and shimmering gold and pink parties.  Gold in metallic foil and glitter is still very ‘IN’ and looks perfect when paired with all shades of pink. These painted wood letters for a first birthday are a perfect example of a unique centerpiece for the birthday table.  Yet the O-N-E does not detract from the main focus, the princess birthday cake.

This unicorn party is fun, whimsical, yet sophisticated with the flowers and pearl filler in the glass globe vases. That cake looks too beautiful to eat!

Next up is a birthday party for a two year old featuring a gold glitter cut number cake topper and heart cake toppers. Simple yet classic.

Giant paper flowers as a party table background speaks volumes at this party.  Paired with small flowers on the gold painted and glitter coated wood letters – makes for a perfect table centerpiece.  These flowers are a super easy diy project too!

This party features a stunning hanging sign behind the party table with the birthday girl’s name.   The name banner across the front of the table ties it all together.  I love tables that are flanked by balloons too.  This is the easiest way to build height and create a visual statement when decorating your party table.

Rather than a single central main centerpiece- this party table has doubled each serving plate, cake and cupcake stands.  This is another great decorating visual trick – creating a mirror effect across a long table with the placement of two identical serving trays and duplicating each food set up.

I hope you are inspired by these stunning pink and gold parties today!
