Scottie Dog in Paris Birthday Party

For a fun & youthful Parisian party, Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties combined French inspired sweets & decor with the birthday girl’s favorite pup to create a Scottie Dog in Paris Birthday Party that was anything but stuffy. I love how the mix of the classic Parisian party details like damask patterns and Eiffel Towers and adorable Scottie dogs created a perfectly tailored theme for the birthday girl. Just think of all of the fun twists you could add to a Parisian party! Ooh la la!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Purple chocolate Eiffel Tower pops + an Eiffel Tower & Scottie dog topped pink birthday cake
– Ooh La La Lemonade table with a pink & purple paper pinwheel backdrop
– Eiffel Tower decorating activity & a Pin the Scottie dog on the Eiffel Tower game with custom face masks
– Scottie dog silhouette toppers on candy cups & rose arrangements & Scottie dog purse party favors

DIY Tutorial: Quick & Easy Glittered Utensils

Guess what… a party craft doesn’t have to be complicated to be great! These Glittered Wooden Utensils are super simple and one of my favorite quick & easy ways to add sparkle to any table – from kids table place settings to grown up appetizer and dessert buffets. And while we all know that glitter has a tendency to kind of get on everything, this particular little project is much less messier than you might expect – with a little help from a handy thing called glitter tape! (P.S. Glitter tape comes in all sorts of colors too!)

This is a very straightforward project, but I know that sometimes a quick glance at a visual graphic of the steps can still be helpful, so here ya go:

Printable Flamingo Party Silhouettes {+ Summer Blog Hop}

I’m a fan of flamingos all year round, but there’s no denying that they fit in especially well during the warm summer months… which is probably one of the reasons I’ve seen flamingo parties (and flamingo everything else!) popping up so much lately.

So for this month’s (Summer Themed) Free Printable Blog Hop, I decided to offer up these cute & girlie Flamingo Party Silhouettes, as seen on the charger plates in our recent Flamingo Fiesta Party theme. I’m thinking they would also be really cute strung into a banner, used on chair backs, or attached to gift bags. You can now download these silhouettes over on the flamingo party recap post, along with the 8×10 Drink Sign and Blank Tent Cards. (You’ll find download links for all 3 items at the bottom of the post.)

P.S. Make sure to scroll down for lots more (free) summer inspired printables from the other Blog Hop participants below… the designs are all so cute! Here are a few hints on what you’ll find: rootbeer floats, lemonade, summer bucket lists, watercolor, retro sunshine, pool party… sounds a lot like summer fun to me! Enjoy :)

ROYAL MEETS TOY {The Challenge} When it comes to “Royal” party themes, visions of glitzy details and fancy-schmancy-in-general decorations are usually what first come to mind (as evidenced in my friend’s royal baby shower, during which I had to restrain myself from glittering everything in sight!). So, when Fisher-Price® recently asked me to come up with […]
