Hi, Everyone…..my name is Kelly Lyden, and I am the editor of The Party Dress. I am so happy to be here today as your “guest hostess” and have brought a darling birthday party to share with you!
Today’s party is so fun for me to post….it’s the birthday party of my best friend’s daughter! I am so fortunate to be called “Auntie Kelly” by this darling little girl, Emma. And am so excited to share some of these adorable details that her mom, Teresa, did for her 5th birthday party!
Emma is a girly girl…we’re talking pink, pink and more pink! So coming up with a theme wasn’t difficult – a color palette centered around the color pink, throw in some flower accents and giant cupcakes – and you have a party fit for a princess. Teresa ordered her party invitations from Tiny Prints, and also found coordinating labels there to use on goodie bags and Emma’s thank you notes.
This party was all about the details….and Teresa made everything herself! The party took place in a white tent outside, and was decorated with pink pom poms and Parallel Ribbed Pink 12-Inch Round Paper Lanternlanterns, all hanging from polka dotted ribbon. Emma L-O-V-E-S flowers. Instead of filling the space with fresh flowers, she decided to make balloon flowers. There were large ones floating around the yard, small ones attached to each girl’s drink straw, and even smaller ones that she made into a ring for each girl to wear. I should probably mention that she had a whole lot of help from Emma’s dad on these! Teresa found a youTube video that gives great directions on how to make the flower balloons and was nice enough to share it with us. So, if you are interested….check out this link.
The cupcake toppers were personalized with each girl’s name on them – which also served as the perfect place card. She presented the cupcakes on a Wilton 4-Tier Stacked Cupcake and Dessert Tower that she had decorated with pink ribbon. Note that the pink ribbon PERFECTLY matches the birthday girl’s Lilly Pulitzer dress! Of course!
It was a happy, happy birthday for Emma Jane!
