I’m so excited to finally be posting Raley’s ‘Punzel 3rd birthday party! She went back and forth for a while on what kind of party she wanted but ultimately landed on a “Punzel and Pascal” party. Every day she would ask me “Is it my Punzel and Pascal party today?!” We weren’t sure party day would ever come but of course it finally did.
The day before her party she went to Mother’s Morning Out that morning in her Rapunzel shirt that I made her with my new Silhouette machine. This machine has been a life saver!
I basically spent the entire day decorating my parents house for the party with the help of my entire family, especially my sister and cousin. We spent a good couple of hours hanging paper lanterns on the ceiling. This is not a random process. My OCD tells me that each piece has to be thoughtfully placed and properly spread out (I know, I’m crazy). They ended up looking so pretty and whimsical!
I thought everything came together beautifully. I made this chalkboard sign which sat on the front porch and greeted people when they walked up. Just inside the door were water paint favors and a photo of Raley.
|Cake from Batter Up Cake Bakery|
|I love Flynn’s line – “Frying pans. Who knew, right?”|
|I love that I was able to use things other than typical platters for serving (like the frying pan, bucket, and cake stands). The table was accented with framed pictures and handlettered signs, flowers, and a lavender lace table overlay.|
|I love colorful paper straws!|
A few other decorations:
|I loved how the mantel turned out! I got this 16×20 canvas with a Groupon deal from Canvas on Demand.|
|Sign made with my Silhouette! I never would have been able to make these suns without it!|
