Madeleine's Patisserie Party

As I continue working on my son & daughter's parties, I thought I'd share a couple more pics with you.
Madeleine loves pastel drop mints, so I wanted to display them in a fun way for her party. Since there's always so many things to buy, I went "shopping" through the things I already own instead of just buying more stuff. A while ago I found this neat jewelry tree from IKEA -it's a great base for my "sweet tree".

I bought adorable cupcake liners from my local bakery shop and punched 2 holes. Charcoal twine from the Twinery worked great as a hanger!

You'll have to stop by again soon to see all the photos after the parties!

Busy Summer!

I can't believe how fast the summer is flying by! .........
My oldest daughter informed me yesterday of her spots all over her tummy. Later I discovered the other 2 displaying the same thing: Chicken pox...yeah! At least they are not in school right now! But it does cause some rearranging in the schedule!
I have been busily working on my 2 kids birthdays for a few weeks now. I'm planning a Baseball party for my 8yr old & a Patisserie party for my 13 yr old(inspired by my daughter Madeleine's french name) My son & daughter were both born on August 12th, 5 years apart! I know it's crazy but were having Carson's party in the morning and Madeleine's in the evening!

I came across this wonderful invitation over on O happy Day. I just followed Jordan's tutorial. I thought it would be a fun and unique way to invite Madeleine's friends! Jordan was so nice to include the label to print too! If you decide to make these yourself.....I found the poppers at Wal-Mart for 50 cents. I HIGHLY suggest NOT popping them! Just peel off the top & labels and dump out the confetti. That way you don't have to disassemble them! I tried to take one apart ...let me tell you it was a royal pain! So...don't even try! :) lol

The colors for M's party are Pink, Green, Black & white. This polkadot tissue will look really cute as her guests open their mail.

The Twinery has the perfect bakers twine for this project: Charcoal, Honeydew and Pink sorbet.

I'll be popping in again soon with more pics of the party planning!

Take care!
