Little Black Dress Affair....Part II

Welcome to the party! Please come in.
{warning...photo overload ahead!}
I floated lots of grey, pink and white balloons from the ceiling and then made giant tissue paper pom poms to hang from the ceiling as well.


Remember the French buckets? Well, I made three more only this time I painted
No.2 No.2 No. 5
to represent our birthday girl's birth date of 2-25
Here you can see the table runner that I made...the one mentioned in the previous post.

I made the tablecloth out of a twin size bed sheet. I made little pleats at each corner that ruffled out so that the cloth was perfectly fitted for the table. No one had any idea it was a sheet! Twin bed sheets are only $4 at Walmart.
{This party was done on a budget}



I filled the buckets with tissue paper flowers that I made. I was going to fill them with roses, but the buckets were way too deep. You wouldn't have been able to see them.

Cupcakes

and some more sweet treats.


I swagged the chandelier with pale pink tulle

more pink tulle tied into bows on the back of each chair


The flatware tucked into the napkins, all tied up in pretty ribbon. I placed these into a galvanized bucket that I found in the dollar bin at Target.

The birthday girl all dressed up for her party


eagerly awaiting her first bite of cake!



Oh yes, she enjoyed it very much!


I made favors to take home as a little remembrance of this day.
They're Hershey bars that I wrapped in scrapbook paper. I printed out a short little birthday poem on vellum and then wrapped them up with black and white polka dot ribbon.


Feel free to grab one on your way out...

and thank you so much for coming to my party!
