Event Recap | 3rd Birthday Party

2 Events 1 WeeekendWhat a weekend, we packed in two celebrations!

An intimate wedding and a pretty pink 3rd birthday party!

Saturday was such a beautiful Missouri Fall day for both celebrations. We started with dressing the brunch dining table for the wedding and then headed to the birthday party to complete our setup there. The birthday party was full of so much cute decor and inspiration we just had to share photos.

Pretty Pink 3rd Birthday Party! Guests entered the dining room/living room where the heart of the party was setup. Kids found treats, a coloring table, favor bags and more. Games spread through the house, keeping everyone busy throughout the afternoon.


Here's a highlight of the custom touches we created:

1. The front door was dressed with a sign "You're in the right place, the party is is here!" "The fun is inside, come on in".

2. As guests entered they were greeted by a table of nametags for parents. Easily printed with an Avery template and accompanied by a catchy sign "You know all the kiddos' names but it's hard to keep track of the parents too."

Between the sign and the nametags Mom and Dad were able to mingle with guests without worrying answering the door or making introductions!

3. Coloring sheets, found with a quick search on Pinterest, topped the kids table before cupcakes along with IKEA coloring pencils and markers.

4. Treats included pink goldfish! No die trick needed, look for the "Princess Goldfish". They happened to be on sale at Target before this party.

5. A treasure chest filled with pinto beans was the perfect hiding spot for treasures. Kids took their time digging for all kinds of treats to fill their favor bags.

6. A ribbon pull pinata of Minnie Mouse ended the day outside.  Be sure the kids pull hard!

There was tulle in just about every piece of decor for this party. Here is the how-to for your very own tulle table skirt and cupcake skirt!

1. Start with three colors, go brighter and bolder because once it's all done the colors  more pale than you would expect.

2. Cut the tulle in strips (3-6 inches wide, they don't have to be identical). For length make them double your needed length (cupcake stand tier height or table height). Tie each strip around a cord - something stiff and with structure works best. To tie fold strip in half and loop the two ends through the middle and around the cord.

Be prepared with 8-10 yards of fabric for a table skirt and 3 rolls of tulle for a cupcake stand.

3. Continue step 2 until you have the fullness you want.

4. To adhere for your table skirt to the table: use adhesive velcro between your linen and tulle skirting. With the soft side on the tulle (for easier storage). For the cupcake stand use hot glue.

5. Trim the skirt out with decorative ribbon, we used a pink rosette. Or leave it plain for a great look too.
