Home Confetti: 2017

For this DIY party planning mom a unicorn party was the only theme that would be able to capture the magic of turning 5. Pretty pastels, glitter, stars and tissue decor set the stage. The kids were kept occupied by crafting beautiful paper unicorns, playing "Pin the Horn on the Unicorn," smashing a pinata and blowing their very own shiny unicorn dust! This party was as beautiful as this little 5-year old and her name, Bella.

Big thanks to Idaho photographer La Belle Bella Photography for capturing and sharing the magic!

You've probably melted crayons for kid projects, but how about doing it for this pretty adult acrylic tray project from Crafts Unleashed?! I love the way the melted crayons take on a watercolor look. She used her Silhouette Cameo to cut out the crayon floral shapes but I'm wondering if you could use cookie cutters? That would probably be easy enough if you don't own a Cameo, or as she suggests you can just use scissors.  Find the full tutorial here.

To commemorate this sweet little boy's first birthday, Mom landed on the theme of the Velveteen Rabbit. She used fresh greenery from the garden as a whimsical backdrop and gave her son wooden garden creatures to play with. The white, clean color palette allowed the little boy to shine through in the photos.
Even if your little ones aren't having a birthday this is a great theme to commemorate Easter. Thanks to Tennessee's Red Boat Photography for sharing the inspiration.

If you can find a charming outdoor patio restaurant like Cafe Amici at the Hotel Beverly Terrace, you're more than halfway there in terms of decorating. The traditional ambiance, vines and brick provide a beautiful backdrop to your special occasion. This garden party celebrated the bride-to-be with champagne, delicious Italian food, while enjoying games such as "How well do you know the bride" and "What's in your purse?" Thanks to Killingsworth Photography for sharing the special day.

This blissful setting, designed and organized by Fairy Godmother, was inspired by classic Easter tales and is a perfect way to welcome family and friends on Easter. I especially love the vintage bar cart and different ceramic bunnies throughout the decor. The small bites of food prove you don't have to go all out with big hams and such to create an elegant spread. Thanks to California photographer, Tim Chong, for sharing this beautiful brunch that can be enjoyed by all ages.

When I started this blog I used to post great crafts and DIY projects I thought were pretty unique and that I felt all skill levels could do. These days with Pinterest, etc. it's become much harder to find those kinds of projects. I feel like we've seen it all. But this project from An Extraordinary Day has re-inspired me! This darling Easter centerpiece is different and really makes a statement on your Easter table. Find the full directions here.

With the start of spring comes the start of fresh party themes. Magnolia Grove Weddings and Events took a break from weddings to style this beautiful brunch that would be perfect for Mother's Day, bridal shower or even a birthday. The watercolors, lemons and greenery whips open the windows and welcomes spring into the home! And you can't have brunch without a mimosa bar. Enhance your own bar with fresh fruit and different flavored juices. Thanks to North Carolina's Kelsey Nelson Photography for capturing and submitting the inspiration. Please make sure to check out the entourage of vendors below who put this spring inspiration together and were kind to share their creativity with us.
