Home Confetti: February 2014

Friday, February 28, 2014


Wedding planner, Katie, of Day Planner Events, threw a colorful and fun rainbow party for her most important client, her daughter. Based on her daughter's love of art and everything crafty, she transformed her husband's gym into a bright and colorful space where 14 little girls could create their own masterpiece, bracelets and enjoy an amazing rainbow cake by Icing and Sprinkles. Big thanks to Dash Photography right here in Colorado for taking and submitting the artful photos!

This project from for the love of... is a great 3D decor item for your party backdrops.  It really makes an impact on the wall.  Instead of tissue paper, you could cover the letters with gems–but just make sure the letters don't get too heavy to hang.  Find the full tutorial here.

How many of you thought to have a beach wedding when you got married?  Any of you thinking about having a beach wedding?? This relaxed rustic nautical wedding set in North Carolina might convince you to do it!  The coral decor used here is perfect for a beach wedding–and would work for any outdoor summer party.  I love the shell boutonniere and the cake is hysterical! Photographer Bryce Lafoon in North Carolina gave them a great mix of fun and romantic photos to remember their big day.

There was a lot of clowning around in this fun and colorful circus party!  Even mom and dad got into the act dressing up like a clown and ring master.  A room was transformed into a big top that welcomed guests with carnival-like sweets and treats. The cake itself is a masterpiece! A magician, face painter and balloon artist kept guests totally entertained. Kristeen Marie Photography in Indiana took and submitted all the picture perfect details!

Have you ever made necklaces with your kids using Fruit Loops and pipe cleaners?  Well, this idea over at Momtastic takes that concept, but turns it into shapes to use as cupcake toppers. Love it because you can try any shape like a diamond or star.  Find the original tutorial here.

The girls had a great time Friday in their classroom Valentine's Day parties. I didn't have anything to do with the planning, so I got to totally relax by just helping the kids do their crafts. The classroom coordinators took care of all the planning. They had some fun games and crafts all the kids enjoyed.

Kids made their own monster mailboxes to hold their valentine cards.
Our mustache valentines were a hit!
Fun at the photo prop booth
Ladybug tic tac toe game was a craft and these robot snacks were super cute!
A heart sun catcher was another craft. Totally forgot to take a photo until we got home!
And fun "minute to win it" games ended the party.
What kind of crafts and games did your kids have in their classroom parties?

Happy Valentine's Day! I can't help sharing this adorable Valentine's Day shoot from Jenna Norman Photography, in California.  This was actually done as two mini shoots, but in my mind I'm thinking this handsome little boy is driving to drop off roses to his little crush and she is giggling as she plays hard to get. So cute!  I hope you enjoy the photos and that each of you has a beautiful day filled with love!

If the week has slipped by you, but you still want to do a little something for your someone special, here are a few ideas you can still get done today in time for Valentine's Day.
HEART LOVE NOTES FROM DESIGN DAZZLE: Adorn a bedroom door, bathroom mirror or the inside of the car of a special someone with all the little things you love about that person.

DONUT FORGET THAT I LOVE YOU FREE PRINTABLE FROM THE SPARKLE COLLECTIVE: Sneak a doughnut in the hubby's bag or a small doughnut hole in your child's lunch with this sweet free printable. It's guaranteed to put a smile on their face!

DIY BANANA VALENTINE FROM THE SWEETEST OCCASION: If you're looking for something less in calories, this is a really cute way to give a Valentine's Day message. Another fun message they suggest: "I'm bananas for you!"

OPEN WHEN LETTERS FROM LIFE LOVE LAUREN: A series of letters that can be opened at the recipient's whim.  "Open when you need a pep talk"... "Open when you are bored."  It's a very thoughtful gift that can be done for an adult or child.
