A Daisy Themed Graduation Party

I created this sweet daisy theme Graduation Party for my daughter. Our school colors are green and white and I thought it would look pretty to use daisies for the flowers – that became my theme! I then added a splash of yellow to the party palette. Knowing my theme and colors several months in advance helped tremendously in preparing for the party. As I was doing my daily shopping I would come across great items to make every detail special. I found so many of my items at Michaels in the dollar bins including tons of pretty ribbon and these super cute green frames. I also wanted the party to have a soft shabby chic feel. I bought several yards of quilting fabrics in a variety of prints and a good pair of pinking shears using this for many of the decorations. My favorite was a pretty ribbon garland made out of Jute string, a variety of ribbons and strips of the quilting fabric. It hung between the columns of our pavilion and look …

Flower Fairy Lights DIY Tutorial

If you love fairy lights then you will love this easy tutorial for creating flower fairy lights from egg cartons! Supplies for making Flower Fairy Lights – different colored cartons (or  you may choose to paint them yourself) – scissors – wire Step 1. With a pair of sturdy scissors, cut away excess cardboard surrounding the cup strips. Round the edges of the egg carton strips to imagine the petals. Make three of these egg carton ends and insert them into each other. The innermost need not be cut into four strips. Step 2. Insert the wire into the hole in the middle and fasten them by pinching the wire together. Make sure it hangs a long wire out from the hole so that the downside in this way can pin the flower on a branch. Step 3. Starting at the cup opening, make a short slit into each side of the cup.Then simply insert one fairy light into each “flower”. They are not attached to anything. Happy creating! xx Amici Events xx

Candy Land Party Ideas

I am loving this adorable Candy Land Party on Parents.com. Lots of great decorating ideas on a budget! It’s so colorful, vibrant and, most importantly, FUN! Candy Land Party Trail Use 12×12 construction paper to re-create the classic Sugar Trail from Candy Land! What you use to hold it in place depends on your floor type. For carpet, try packing tape.

Use white acrylic paint on the wrapping paper tube. For something a bit more sturdy, you could use spray painted PVC pipe.
