Campout Time :: Featured Party

My bestie from across the street is a party planner extraordinaire! 
So when she asked me to create a few things for her next party, I was thrilled!

The invitations turned out so great-from the wording to the mix of rustic & modern graphics. 
I just love it! And the stickers just complete the table.

$15 for the invitation & sticker files

My amazing & sweet mother celebrated her 60th birthday back in the fall. 
I love any occasion that's fit for a party!!
She is "Honey" to all her grandkids, so it was just a natural decision to go with subtle hints of honeycombs for the decor!
Here's a peek into some of the fun details & decor for her birthday weekend!

I scored big time at Trader Joe's with all these amazing flowers. 
I always love their selection & their prices!

The wrapping paper was just the inspiration I needed to pull the party together & the hexagons I painted, added a quote from each family member on one side & a picture of Honey & that person on the other side. Such a personal touch!

Let's Flamingle!

We just had the MOST fun Let's Flamingle party for our sweet SEVEN year old! 
She adores all things pink...so this theme just fit her to a tee. 

I now have the pack available for purchase!
Contact me at ashley.snowbird@gmail.com to order or for more info! 

See below for other links & sources! 

Other party sources:
Flora and the Flamingo 
Visit this post to read about our Birthday Book Tradition...my favorite! 
Flamingo Lights {similar}
I got mine from Michaels on the summer 80% off aisle! 

Flamingo Sign on the table came from Hobby Lobby 
{with a 40% off coupon & now looks adorable in my sweet girls room...and considered party of her birthday gift!}

Plates, Plastic Tablecloths, Paper Straws, etc all came from Walmart
They have a great color selections & are so much cheaper than Party City. 
{Even though I love you, Party City...your prices aren't awesome.}
The blue favor & drink cups and candy for the favors did come from there though!

One of the reasons I love picking a theme & planning early is SALES and COUPONS!
If I know ahead of time colors, theme, etc I can be watching clearance sections & be stocking up at Hobby Lobby using my weekly 40% coupon, or watching weekly sales. 
I save SO much on my parties by doing this. If I were to go out the week before & buy everything I just couldn't do it. But by planning & knowing ahead of time it works!

Tickled Pink!

Hello friends! 
Well...I {obviously} took the summer off from blogging! Hopefully now that school is about to be back in session I will have a little time to post a few new designs from the past few months. 

But for now-how about a free printable!? 

We are headed to Meet the Teacher tonight for our big first grader! 
I always love to take a little treat to my kids teachers at Meet the Teacher. It's a little less crazy than the first day of school, and what better way to start off the year by letting your teacher know that you have been thinking & praying for her!? 

This is the third year in a row I have done the "tickled pink" theme for our teachers at the beginning of the year. There are so many ways to go & I have done something a little different with it each year. This year...a cup from the dollar bin & a Mardel gift card. 
Almost all of the teachers at our school moved classrooms over the summer & Emma's teacher is moving from a different grade-so I'm sure she has a mile-long wish list! 

CLICK HERE to download the free printable tag! 
Post & tag me in your pictures-I would love to see how you use yours!

Bike Party

We just celebrated my son's third birthday. I think it might rate up at the top of my list of  favorite party theme we have done so far. It was the biggest hit with all the kids!!! Success!

I kept the food pretty simple. I had a make-your-own trail mix station, fruit & fruit dip and the cake. 
I filled jars with all sorts of snacky things & provided take out boxes for everyone to make their own trail mix. The little favor stickers & labels on the jars make it look so pulled together!

On the invitation I put for everyone to bring their bike or riding toy.
There was a parking lot if they needed to park for a while. 
When they arrived I directed them to the decoration station. There they could attach their license plate, add streamers, balloons, spoke beads, handle bar streamers however they wanted. Obviously the girls got the biggest kick out of this spot, where the boys were just ready to RIDE! 

I followed this tutorial to make a bike car wash, and had buckets, sponges, spray bottles & rags if they needed to give their ride a hand wash. ;) 

We put out cones & balloons to mark off the race track & we just let the kids ride as the wished. I knew at some point we might need to do a few organized rides or courses, but they were completely entertained the whole time just doing their own thing!
