Garden Party Inspiration
My last post was about a baby shower I did recently, and now that it's over I have two more parties to think about. The first is a garden themed party that Paige's friend Sarah is having. I'm helping with the decorations, which should be so fun!

I'm planning to make paper cone hats (my tutorial here) with paper versions of these flowers:
And maybe a special flower hat for the birthday girl?
Martha's poms are a duh. I think I'll make them in different colors with green streamer "stems" hanging down. I think that would look cute!
Balloon flowers are a great outdoor decoration! And these folded paper flowers (here's my tutorial) are so simple to make!
A garden should probably have butterflies, eh? I love these that Dana's kids made, but I think I might use my silhouette for a time saver. :o)
We have several pair of wings for the kids to wear....
And I think I'll make a few felt flower collars, too. Looks easy enough! Won't that make adorable photos??
Technically, I'm not in charge of food. But how clever is this flower cookie idea? (Could I use donut holes??)
These next few cupcake ideas are totally out of my range of abilities, but seriously: HOW. CUTE. are they!
These ones with the chocolate dirt just kill me.
I also have some little white terra cottas that I might put some bright candies in, like these:
This is a fun idea for green Christmas lights. Maybe not practical for a daytime party, though.
And lastly, the most important part of a party--what to wear!! I couldn't help sharing these adorable garden party perfect dresses for little girls.
If I had time I'd make skirts like this for all the girls. So fresh and springy! I love the one with the birds.
Love this adorable butterfly dress. (With tutorial!)
And these sweet ones from J. Crew:
And these from Gap Kids.
I WANT THEM!! I love the celery green.
Doesn't a flowery garden party sound like heaven right now? I love spring. You should plan one! Seriously! You don't need a reason. Just grab your best girls and have a little one in your back yard. It would be so spontaneous of you.
So what's the other party I'm planning? Paige's of course! But I'll save that inspiration for a little while later. It's not your typical little girl party theme, but Paige and I are excited about it. :O)
Hope you're having a great day. :O)
