DIY Tutorial: Colorful Plastic Ball Party Garland

If you’re looking to add a big pop of color to a kids birthday party, I’ve got a fun project for you that’s surprisingly easy and budget-friendly!

You know those colorful plastic balls that you played in as a kid – or maybe the ones that your own kids play in now? Well…. you can actually turn them into colorful garlands that make for super fun party decor! Lightweight and durable, they can easily be pierced with a large sewing needle and strewn onto baker’s twine for a playful look. (You can find plastic balls in bulk on Amazon or in-store at Target or Walmart.) Here’s a closer peek at how to make them:

You’ll Need:
•    Plastic Balls
•    Baker’s Twine
•    Large sewing needle

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Thread your needle with baker’s twine, then pierce the center of a plastic ball with the needle and pull it completely through the other side.

Sparkly DIY Winter Ballerina Birthday Party

When Jenny Joseph’s daughter changed her birthday party theme request from Frozen to Ballerina at the very last minute, she whipped up a little “ice magic” of her own by combining the 2 requested themes into this beautiful Winter Ballerina Birthday Party!

And as impressed as I am by the the gorgeous homemade cake (WOW!) and the cute and sparkly little paper ballerina outfits that can be found everywhere from the invitations to the cupcakes, the most impressive thing of all is that she spent less than $200 on this entire party – including this dessert table set-up AND a full lunch spread for guests. The fancy cake alone could’ve easily eaten that budget up by itself… nice work, Jenny! :)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gorgeous ombre ruffled tier cake topped with personalized fondant ballerina slippers
– Chocolate penguins laying on a bed of acrylic “ice” + “Melted Snowman” water bottles
– Darling mini DIY ballerina outfits with sparkly leotards + crepe paper & tulle tutus
– Lots of pretty paper doily accents + the popular Ung Drill Ikea frame spray painted silver

{Bright & Stylish} Octonauts Inspired Birthday Party

Of all the different party types that come my way, one of my FAVORITE things to see is a very well-done character party. Maybe it’s because I have kids that love these characters too, or maybe it’s because I’ve heard SO many people complain about how much they struggle with making character parties also look stylish… or maybe it’s a little bit of both. In any case, today’s feature is a wonderfully bright & shining example of how to bring a character party to life in style!

P&J by Design did an AMAZING job with this Octonauts Inspired Birthday Party… from the great mix of patterns and textures to the insanely cute Octonauts themed treats that look like mini works of art. They also managed to create an atmosphere that works well for the grown-up guests and little ones alike!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gorgeous tier cake with incredibly detailed fondant Octonauts characters on top
– Different, yet coordinating tablescape designs for the kids and adults
– White sequin dessert table cover + sugar cookies displayed in oversize sea shells
– Adorable, handmade Kwazii Kitten table centerpiece & “Octo Juice” for the kids
– Playful, show-inspired phrases like “To Your Stations!” and “Thanks for joining the crew!”
