Despicable Me Evil Minion 2nd Birthday {Terrible Twos}

First off, I want to say a HUGE thank you for your kind words & support after our announcement last night. Making a big change is never easy, but it has been much easier knowing I have all of you behind me and HWTM. Like I said, although we are taking an indefinite break from accepting others’ parties, we are still honoring all of the parties already accepted (which will hopefully make the transition smoother for everyone) :). So without further ado…

Drexelle Park of D. Park Photography is back with another amazing birthday party! (We featured the adorable Dumbo-themed first birthday party for her son, Knightly, a while back.) Now entering his (terrible) twos, they decided to celebrate with a crazy-adorable Despicable Me Evil Minion 2nd Birthday, which was fabulously styled by Wendy Allen and just looks like a good time all around! Rather than the traditional yellow Minions, this party featured their evil twin — the purple Monster Minions (which can be found poking around every corner of this party). I just love when you can feel all of the love & warmth coming through the photos… scroll down to see what I mean!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Evil Minion silhouette & striped popcorn box centerpieces + adorable custom Evil Minion pillows
– Purple Minion beach balls & hanging tissue poms + purple table cloths & large paper ‘goggle’ table decor
– DIY Evil Minion construction helmets with yarn hair & googly eyes + birthday overalls & purple Minion shirt
– Purple minion eye cake with Evil Minion topper + a “normal” yellow Minion smash cake

Twinkling Fairy Tea Party {Party on a Dime #4}

For her Balloon Time party, Toni Roberts of Design Dazzle styled this absolutely adorable Twinkling Fairy Tea Party with soft pinks, glittering lights and tons of DIY (her tutorials are linked below)! I am just loving all of the whimsical decor & cleverly styled Dollar Store pieces — because really, anything amped up with gold glitter is a win in my book ;). Make sure to check out all of the other Party on a Dime contestant features right here.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY pink flower seating + a DIY balloon & flower archway over a cardboard doorway entry & topiaries
– Gold glitter decorated fairy wings, woodland animal figurines & a blossoming branch centerpiece
– DIY glitter toadstools & flower headbands + ring topped cupcakes & sprinkled wafer cookies

Pink Chevron You Are My Sunshine Birthday Party

With crisp air and cloudy skies creeping in, we’re loving this burst of sunshine from Paige Kepner of Paiges of Style! She celebrated her daughter’s special day with this You Are My Sunshine Birthday Party filled with cheerful decor, colorful chevron stripes & the cutest, “sunny” desserts (like those amazing sunshine cake pops). No matter the weather, it’s always fun to soak up some rays ;).

Country Farm Birthday Party {Party on a Dime #3}

As the third installation of the Balloon Time Party on a Dime contest series, Michelle Burt of Maddycakes Muse has got a rootin’ tootin’ Country Farm Birthday Party to share with ya’ll! Michelle not only was able to stay under budget (just $84 spent!), but she also thoughtfully disregarded the loads of party supplies she already had (knowing that the average person doesn’t have that kind of stash) and used other common things around her house + lots of great finds from the Dollar Store! This is one party that definitely does not look like it came from a bargain bin! ;) See all of the Party on a Dime contestant features here.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Homemade corndogs on mini hay bales + homemade chili served in flannel topped mason jars
– DIY chalkboard chargers (+ chalk for decorating), bandana napkins & pie tin plates
– Flower filled cowgirl boot, popcorn filled bushel basket, a chicken wire backdrop & birdhouse painting
– DIY barn fruit ‘cake’ with watermelon slices & cookie cutter fruit animals + cow print juice & balloons

For our 2nd Balloon Time contestant feature, we’re excited to share this adorable Girly Garden Birthday Party, styled by Maggie Brereton of Smashed Peas and Carrots. Maggie searched through thrift stores & her own vintage collection so that she could stay under the $100 budget (spending just $89.36 to be exact)! I love the relaxed mismatched chairs & bench […]
