Pink and Purple Birthday Party!

Sugar and spice and everything nice!
That is what this little party was made of!

This birthday party was in honor of our niece, Caroline, who recently turned 8 years old!
 We had the privilege of styling her party for her! 
She requested a pink and purple, with some flowers theme.  And we had to deliver!
We have quite a few pictures to show you, so get ready!

The Party table held some yummy treats!

We made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla cream cheese frosting!

We had to make the cupcakes special, so we used our monogram cupcake toppers!

We had three large treat jars. They were filled with pink strawberry wafer cookies, pink bubble gum balls and pink and purple swirl lollipops with our special monogram label!
We made treat cups and filled them with pink chocolate marshmallow cookies, pretty saltwater taffy and tasty marshmallows!

We used our bottle wraps to wrap water bottles and recycled glass bottles.
We also made straw slips for the straws using our party circles!

       At each place setting we placed a napkin wrapped in our bottle wrap as a napkin ring!

For the birthday girl Caroline's place setting, we made a place mat out of pink card stock and embellished it with ruffled crepe paper. Used our Cricut machine and cut out a silhouette of a girl and embellished it.We made a very special cupcake stand to hold Caroline's birthday cupcake on out of a plastic martini glass!

Every birthday girl needs a party hat! We found ours at the Dollar Store and embellished it with flowers,ribbons and monogram party circle!

We brought flowers onto the table by using a roll of Dollar Store gift wrap paper that matched our theme perfectly as a table runner.We cut out  flowers with the Cricut and made bouquets for our milk glass vases.

We placed a special birthday present at the birthday girls seat! She was happily surprised to find a pretty pink gumball necklace waiting inside! One of our favorite blogs and party girls inspired us to do the necklace and you can see it done here first.

We set up a girly vanity table for the birthday girl! This was used for play and as a photo prop! That is Caroline their in the magic mirror!

For party favors the girls took home treats from the party table and these adorable pink strawberry scented ice cream bar bubbles we found at the Dollar Store!
 We attached our" thank you for coming" tag to each ice cream bar bubble.

So there it is! The girls had a wonderful time. They were treated to a trip to BuildABear Workshop prior to coming back home. While the girls were away, the party fairies were busy doing their magic! Caroline was surprised to see her pink and purple party upon her return!

We hope we have inspired you in some small way!

Remember, keep it Homespun!

do good; dewll in the
land, and feed on His
