We were beyond thrilled to have been asked to contribute a party to the latest issue of Nesting Newbies magazine! I know when I shared the magazine a couple of weeks ago, I promised more images soon…..well, I’ve been busy! But I’m back today with a few posts to show you the amazing details that made up this darling party.
The ladies at Nesting Newbies asked me to put aside the character themes and the princess wands, and create a party that was truly me, my style. Using a series of crisp black and white patterns, and a bold Kelly green, our modern barbie silhouette got a sophisticated update! To define the vertical space of the party room, I hung a pennant banner amongst playful pom pom garlands (which I made with green ribbon and small, black and white pom poms I found at Michael’s) above the tables. (but at a lower-than-normal-height, so the kids would feel like the space was all for them!)
Small tables, perfect for a tea party, were set with custom made white denim tablecloths that had a large black swiss dot ruffle at the bottom. I made coordinating cloth napkins, and set the table with Kelly green glasses and silverware, black plates and my signature centerpiece – white pots full wheat grass and a floral pomander, and topped with centerpiece sticks. Don’t you just love that one, single pop of hot pink in the centerpiece and on our birthday girl!? (who was also wearing a darling stripe hair bow by Mel-Belles)
One of my favorite details of the tablesetting were the placecards on the back of the chairs. Perfectly proportioned to child-size chairs, the guests were delighted to see their names on them! There are still so many details to come! Head on back this afternoon to see the details of the dessert table!
