All I really bought for Paige’s birthday party decor was some crepe paper and balloons! Once I decided on the color scheme I bought matching crepe paper and balloons on Amazon. I decided not to really have a “theme” so I was kind of picky about the colors. I finally settled on using peach, aqua, gold and a little bit of navy. I basically made all of the decorations the day before the party, so needless to say, they all needed to be easy and fast! This first garland that I made was actually the result of a DIY fail! I was trying to do something completely different and it didn’t work out, ha! But the result was this cute crepe paper starburst garland though!
The day before her party I realized that decorating was turning into “How many things can I do with crepe paper?!”. Here is another garland of draping crepe paper :)
I made a little backdrop by layering crepe paper in the dining room. I didn’t catch a very good picture of it but Paige’s little birthday cake was sitting here.
I took some leftover grey crepe paper from another party and ran it through the sewing machine so that it would ruffle and I lined the edges of the backdrop with it.
Here is a peek of it with her cake. Thank goodness Jenn snagged this photo of the cake! I wish I would’ve taken a few more before the party started but I didn’t have time!
I pinned this cute balloon decoration on Pinterest and decided to give it a try! You just add a penny into each balloon before blowing it up to weight it down! Thank you, Pinterest.
I made a little Happy Birthday Banner using Photoshop and Mac Pages and my mom helped me cut it out and hang it on our big chalkboard.
That was pretty much all I did! Just some cute touches here and there to make it feel festive! The only other things I bought were striped napkins (at TJMaxx) and striped straws! I had to! :)
