Super fun LETTERS – DIY
I had a great weekend since it was a special, long weekend. We spent it with friends and squeezed in what might have been one of the last BBQ’s for this season!
I hope you too had a great weekend….especially since it is already mid-week by now and another is almost upon us. Actually, I realized by the time I post this….it is actually weekend again. I had a migraine inbetween. Yikes !
For this weekend, the big event will be my daughter’s birthday party. Surely I will share some fun ideas later, but for now… preparations are well…only almost there !! …
Recently a friend had her 30th birthday…I just happened to be in London at the time and could not just sit by and watch them prepare for the party. So I offered to set the tables and the colour combination of what I call crispy RED and GREEN apples are always a great choice for any party in a place where the weather can sometimes turn gloomy overnight !!
I felt crafty, so I decided to make something cheerful letters to compliment the green we had going.
I bought these letters and acrylic paint from Hobbycraft. What a SUPER cool store if you are the crafty kind !!!
The red letters still looked a bit dull…so I glued some double-sided dots onto the letters and that made me feel so much happier ! Actually, what inspired the idea was the polka dot napkins that caught my eye while walking the aisles of Tesco !
I was pleased with the outcome…and so everything else started to feed off of these letters…
…..even the cupcake decoration that my super chef sister and the birthday girl prepared ! (yes – you guessed her name !!)
Who said 30-year old parties can’t be as much fun as preparing for 3-yr olds !!
Actually….it’s way more fun…shhhh..don’t tell anyone !
We enjoyed a super birthday with a super girl !
Now off to prepare for a party – where I DON’T get to choose the theme or the color scheme….. 5 yr olds tend to be very dictatorial when they choose their party scheme! (see what I mean….)
Enjoy your weekend. This will be a busy one for me !!Ilze
