real parties: 30th birthday

My birthday is just a week away… let’s just say 29 plus a few years {wink}. So when Amy of This HeArt of Mine sent her and her husband’s dual DIY 30th birthday party over, I just had to share. She did such a fabulous job!

Starting with the DIY invitations (see all the how-to and resources), Amy used glassine bags and confetti. I love a bright invitation to get guests excited. How could someone decline this invite?!

Next she made some lovely decorations, like this $2 cupcake stand. Very versatile and did you catch… only $2!

Plus a smart branch and glass globe centerpiece (get the how-to).

Now on to all the yummy food Amy prepared!

Pretty Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes & Ganache and Vanilla Cupcakes & Vanilla Frosting with chocolate transfer hearts.

 A bright Cranberry-Limeade party drink.

Fabulous appetizers including  Pastry Wrapped Creamy Chicken SquaresParty Crock Pot Cheese Dip, and Mustard Vegetable Dip. It all looks so yummy!

And what is a party without favors?! Amy sent all her guests home with fudge packaged in clear cups wrapped in clear cellophane and tied with pretty little personalized tags she made herself in Word.

{Amy – you did such a lovely job on the entire affair! Thanks so much for sharing!}

By the way, if you’ve hosted something fabulous, send us a note to with the subject line “Get Featured” and we might share your creativity! As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!
