Friday Favorites: Tissue Paper Decorations

It is been a while since I’ve posted, and lots of things have been keeping me busy… But I’m still alive. Last month, I posted 2 baby showers that I threw for my friends (Mint, Pink & Gold | Spring Baby Shower). In order to stay within my budget, I used Tissue Paper for a lot of my decorations. It’s amazing how you can turn ordinary tissue paper into something beautiful! It’s completely affordable and as you can see below, they can turn into some beautiful and useful decorations! Whether you’re on a budget or looking for different ways of using tissue paper for your next party, here are some fabulous ideas!

Spring Baby Shower + Free Printables

Spring-Baby-Shower

Last weekend I threw a baby shower for my friend, Stephany, who’s having her first baby! I’ve had so much the last couple of weeks channeling my girly side and planning this baby shower, since most of the stuff I do is for my boys. We had fun eating, smelling “poopy” diapers, tasting baby food, avoiding the word “baby” and seeing how much the daddy-to-be knew about babies. It was the perfect way to get the mommy-to-be excited about her baby!

Today, I’m also sharing the printables I used for this party and hope that it will help you plan your next baby shower. If you haven’t played any of these games, you should definitely consider them at the next shower you host!

Tissue Paper Cupcake Wrap

Cupcake Tissue Paper 6

I was up late trying to quickly finish cupcakes for my friend’s Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower earlier this week. I had just designed and printed out cupcake wrappers and started to cut out the first wrap. I taped the wrap onto the cupcake and thought that it was going to take way too much time for me to finish the rest of them. I looked over at my dining room table and saw that I still had some of the gold polka dotted tissue paper laying there. Whether or not this idea is completely original, I had to try it out. I cut down the tissue paper to fit the cupcake, stuck it into a plastic cup and it looked cute and most importantly, it was going to save me lots of time!

Here’s how I did it:

IMG_5188

I cut down my tissue paper to a 5×5 square (sizes will vary by cupcake).

Cupcake Tissue Paper

Gather the sides of the tissue paper and wrap it around the cupcake.

Cupcake Tissue Paper 2

Stick your cupcake and tissue paper wrap into the cup.

Cupcake Tissue paper 3

Ice your cupcake, making sure the icing doesn’t touch the tissue paper.

Cupcake Tissue Paper 4

Last, but not least, insert the cupcake into a candy bag and wrap it with ribbon or baker’s twine and it’s ready to be used at your next party! These were super easy and such a great time saver! Don’t be surprised if you see me using these more than once!

Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower + Printables

Baby-Shower-Mint-Pink-and-GoldOur good friend Rachelle (who is also an amazing photographer) is having a baby in less than 3 weeks and we wanted to throw a baby shower for her. We tried to keep it simple, and had a pancake bar that included a super delicious homemade buttermilk and strawberry syrup. Everything was delicious, and we had lots of fun celebrating Rachelle and her baby! We can’t wait to meet her little girl soon!!!

Photo Credit goes to Rachelle Packard. (I must make a side note that I did the editing on the photos, as they are nowhere close to how good Rachelle’s photography and editing skills are).

When it came to designing printables, I followed these color palettes.

Mini Easter Baskets – Free Printable

Mini Easter Baskets Display

I have to admit, last year was the first year I ever had a Cadbury Egg (or it had been a VERY long time since I had one) and I fell in LOVE! I have been addicted to them and have to control myself whenever I have them in my house, so as you can imagine, taking pictures of these Mini Easter Baskets was not easy. On the other hand, these Mini Easter Baskets are very easy to put together.

You can use these as part of your table setting for the “Kids Table” (or the “Adult Table”) at Easter Dinner, use them for a party favor or a little treat to pass out to friends. I’ve created 5 different colored printable baskets, or you can use your own scrapbook paper and use the Blank Mini Easter Basket printable here to print on the back. They’re a fun addition to your Easter celebration and they’re totally budget friendly.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-Printer

-Mini Easter Basket Printable (grab the downloads below)  or (blank version here)

-Glue or Double Sided Tape

-Grass for Easter Baskets

-Easter Treat

-Easter Tags (download here)

-String

JD Easter Basket

JD really wanted to help and did a pretty good job (sort of). When I asked him not to squish the “basket,” he couldn’t help himself, so the picture of the pink basket is a little squishy thanks to this kid. 🙂

Avenger Birthday Party Printables

JD had been waiting for his birthday since Christmas was over. That may not be that long of a wait, but for an almost 4 year old that’s a long time… and it felt long for me as well, since he’d ask me every morning if it was his birthday yet. It didn’t help that his brother’s birthday was just 3 days after Christmas, my birthday was 2 weeks later, his cousin’s was a couple days after mine, and one of his good friend’s was 2 days before his. Because of this, I wanted to make sure his birthday was extra special (as it will have to be every year). He loved everything about his party, and he had a blast! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.

Today, I’m sharing the printables I made for the party, including a couple of the ones that I didn’t have a chance to put together. If you have a little super hero in request of an Avengers Birthday party, they’re going to love these decorations! [For personal use only].

We had a blast at the party, and can’t wait to see what this year has in store for our little Super Hero! We love you JD!

Plane Party Printables

Within the last month, we’ve had 3 birthdays in our little family. Our baby turned 1 at the end of December, I had a birthday at the beginning of January, and our oldest turned 4 this past Saturday!! It’s been a fun and busy month, and I can’t believe how big our boys are getting!

Today, I’m sharing the printables I used for Danny’s 1st birthday party. We were up visiting family during Christmas and had his party at my in-laws, but forgot to bring my camera! The decorations turned out so cute at their house, and I’m really bummed that I couldn’t capture it with my camera.

I decided to do a Plane Party since my husband’s “plan” for his career is to become a pilot (our 4 year old’s “career path” is to be a professional baseball player). I, of course don’t care what their career path is as long as they are happy (and not homeless). If you’re planning a Plane Party, I hope you find these helpful!
