Stopping Time   Forever Thirty Nine Steampunk Birthday Party

Gears, glitter & cool vintage oddities — this party has something for everyone! Michelle Stewart of Michelle’s Party Plan-It DIYed her tail off for this Stopping Time – Forever Thirty-Nine Steampunk Birthday Party. Just about everything you see was “steampunked” by Michelle or one of her awesome vendors. I love the clever idea of stopping time before the big 4-0.. I’ll be experiencing those same thoughts soon! Hey Michelle — save this decor for me, would ya? ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Metallic painted Nerf gun & hot air balloon ‘zephyr’ + gold balloon topped glitter candy apples
– Gear topped cakes pops, gear, clock & chain decorated cookies + metallic gold glitter pretzels & rice krispies
– Vintage style photo booth props + a custom, laser-cut glittered backdrop
– DIY pipe lamp with pressuremeter + DIY embellished favor tags & embossed popcorn favor boxes

Theres No Place Like Home Wizard of Oz Welcome Home Party

When her sister was coming home from a long trip away, Britni Vigil of Play. Party. Pin. wanted to welcome her back in true Kansas-style with this “There’s No Place Like Home” Wizard of Oz Welcome Home Party! To get everything just right, Britni did some serious recon on the classic film, watching it numerous times so as not to leave out any of the details. The dessert table was cleverly set up in order of the story’s events, so guests could follow along the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy on her way through Munchkin Land, the poppy fields & Emerald City. With family as thoughtful as this, there really is no place like home!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY character themed party hats, Glenda wands + welcome home care package with ruby red slip-ons
– Cowardly Lion frosted Oreos & ‘Liquid Courage’ + Tin Man oil chocolate pudding with gummy hearts
– Hot air balloon topped cupcakes & Emerald City green glittered mason jars
– Ruby Red Slippers cake topper & cake pops + red glittered utensils with blue gingham napkins
– Character themed garland, yellow brick road table runner & a rainbow streamer backdrop

Pineapple Fiesta Birthday Party {Party on a Dime #5}

Our 5th Party on a Dime feature comes from Vanessa Diaz of The Queen of Swag, and after checking out these pics, she also looks like the queen of FUN to me! I mean, there is seriously SO much creativity in this budget-conscious Pineapple Birthday Party Fiesta, and it’s bursting with happy colors at every turn. My favorite detail, though, has to be the store-bought yellow macarons that she cleverly transformed into darling little pineapples. They also happen to pair very nicely with her watermelon manicure. ;)

{See all of the Balloon Time Party on a Dime contestant features here.}

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Homemade pineapple shaped funfetti birthday cake + “pineapple” macarons
– Sparkly pineapple and flamingo photo booth props and novelty sunglasses
– Little plastic fruits (filled with candy powder) displayed in upside down mini sombereros
– Pineapple shaped place cards & table confetti + pineapple-stamped favor bags
