Best Kids Parties: Balloons

My Party

Name: Krosby
Location: Glendale, AZ

I wish I could claim this little cutie as mine, but she actually belongs to my BFF, Shelby. I had so much fun helping plan the party! The theme of the party was balloons because Krosby is a big fan and we figured this would be a very cute and easy party theme to work with.

After deciding the color scheme (purple and aqua), I created and made the invites that are complete with little spools wrapped in purple baker's twine (awww!). The dessert table was my domain. The budget was small so I had to get creative. A lot of the items on the table were made by hand with stuff I already owned. For example the cake stand was two candle holders spray painted and glued together. I used leftover paper from the envelope liners, cut it in strips, and folded it accordian style and glued it around the edge.

Because the party took place at a park with bbq grills Mom decided to put Dad to work and do easy, but very tasty, hot dogs and cheeseburgers. For dessert we had vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting sprinkled with purple and aqua sprinkles.

Kids played at the nearby park or chased the many pigeons around. The party was decorated with purple polka dot table cloths and lots and lots of balloons (of course!). We also did a mini-photo shoot before the party with a huge balloon I bought at Shop Sweet Lulu. We couldn't be happier with how this low budget DIY party turned out!
