Are you looking for some party ideas for an upcoming birthday? The party theme I chose for my daughter’s 2nd birthday was Vintage Equestrian Birthday Party.
Think less cowgirl, more trophies and awards. You can see more party photos by clicking here.
I also showed you how to make your own scrap fabric banner/backdrop.
Here are a few more details from the party and some ideas for any party.
I had plain pink cups that I wanted to dress up. I purchased this beautiful downloadable party package via 3 Little Monkeys Studio on Etsy. All you have to do is get it printed or print it out home. She gives you so many templates to work with and there are ideas listed at the top of the page or you can come up with your own. I printed this sheet of circles on full sheet sticker/label paper.
Then I took a 2 inch circular craft punch and cut out the inner circles.
Just peel and stick to your paper cups!
They looked so pretty on our beverage table.
Next up are party favors/treat bags/loot bags/whatever you call them. I bought simple white paper bags from Michael’s and added three rows of washi tape to the front.
So pink and girly!
Add all your loot to the bags then fold the top over about an inch. Hole punch two holes in the center and tie a ribbon and tag on each bag.
I printed these tags from the party package I purchased.
I added some chocolate, pony stickers, some other things I can’t remember and these adorable mini trophies!
Last little project I’m going to show you today is how to make your own party wands.
I had so much of this floral fabric leftover from my DIY scrap fabric banner that I decided to make little wands for the kids.
- fabric cut into 1 inch strips (two strips of fabric per wand)
- paper straws
- hot glue gun
Just tie two strips of fabric onto each straw. Double-knot each strip. Add a dab of hot glue toward the end of the straw then push the fabric knots over the glue. This will help to NOT burn your fingers!
And that’s it! The kids had so much fun twirling around with them and because the straws are just made of paper I didn’t find they were too much of a lethal weapon!
Are you inspired for planning your next party?
