The birthday party: 2013

 If you remember from last year I was burnt out and overdone with holidays, by the time my birthday came around I through this pitty party

So, this year was different. I wanted a BIG party.
I knew I wanted red and teal as colors
These were the invitation I made using an embossing pin to write out you are invited, my little cricket for the cupcake teal washi tape and red polka dot vellum for the flag. I used flat scalloped red cards from paper source in teal envelopes.

I really like the way it came out.  

I found some inspiration on pinterest, of course. 

1. I love the fad  of the DIY food stations
this is an ice cream/ hot chocolate bar

2. I love this wine and cheese pairing

3. Love the instructions on kraft paper

This was my rendition:
(sorry I have no pictures of the actual party) 

Wine pairings table

This was the hot chocolate and ice cream station

Both were a hit. 

We also had cupcakes from a local bakery, that did our wedding cake, that I absolutely love

Onto decorations:
The kitchen, I made red and teal tissue paper pom poms 

In the dinning room there were pom poms and these vellum hanging mobiles
 next to our themed window

What was your last party theme? Try anything new? What do you think?
