60th birthday party in pink and gold watercolors

A lovely pink and gold happy 60th birthday party!

Pink and Gold 60th Birthday Party

Hi everyone!  It’s Deanna from Mirabelle Creations and I’m excited to be here at The Celebration Shoppe sharing a recent pink, white and gold Watercolor Party I hosted in honor of my mom’s 60th birthday. 

Pink and Gold 60th Birthday Party

Although a watercolor theme is a common theme for kids’ art parties, it’s also a great party theme for a more sophisticated party. This pink watercolor theme lends a fresh, ethereal feel.  I love the versatility of a watercolor party theme because it works well for adult birthday parties, kid birthday parties, weddings, showers, or even dinner parties.

Pink and Gold Birthday Party Cake

The pink watercolor décor was paired with touches of gold for this 60th birthday dinner.  Some of the elements that were incorporated into the party included: a Watercolor Printable Party Collection, a Dip Dyed Ruffled Crepe Paper Garland, pink and gold mini tissue fringe cake topper, fudge topped with gold sprinkles, and gold heart cupcake toppers.  Fresh flowers and a pink and gold tablescape completed the party set up.

plan a classic children’s book party

Book Party Ideas | TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Hello again, everyone! It’s Kristie, and I’m excited to be back to share a fun birthday idea — a classic children’s book party!

My son, Kenton, was an early reader — in fact, his first word was “book.” I designed this party with him and all his little book-loving friends in mind. My design inspiration started with this bookworm owl invitation, which is part of my collection exclusively for Minted.

Playing off the owl’s glasses, I found these fun geek-chic “toy” reading glasses by Loftus. They’d make such cute party favors — and an adorable photo op.

Since we’re talking classic party, what could be more classic than cookies and milk? DIY iced alphabet cookies from designmom.com, and milk served in vintage bottles, available at dressmycupcake.com, would be perfect on your dessert table.

Stack books as creative food pedestals, and wrap them in colored paper that coordinates with your party decor (tutorial found at designmom.com). Then use pages from old books to make these adorable pinwheels for cupcakes from bhg.com.

And I couldn’t resist this smart and sophisticated little owl t-shirt from Boden!

Visit me on Minted for more invitation and stationery ideas. And as always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

gumball spider Halloween favors

Gumball Spider Halloween Favors | Mirabelle Creations for TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Hi there! It’s Deanna from Mirabelle Creations here to share a not-too-spooky treat for Halloween.

These creepy crawly Spider Lollipops are simple enough even for your little goblins to help assemble. And, kids will love that they are not made using traditional lollipops, but made using gumballs! They are perfect for a Trick or Treat, You’re So Sweet Halloween Party favor, classroom Halloween treat, or a simple goody to pass out to neighborhood friends.

These little Halloween Spider Lollipops were made using just black gumballs. However, feel free to get creative and use whatever color gumballs you’d like. They would be especially cute in pink or purple for a girly Halloween party. You should also be able to find a package of black pipe cleaners, so you don’t have pick out the black ones from a package of assorted ones. I found the package I used for under $1.00 at my local grocery store.

To make Gumball Spider Lollipops, you’ll need:

  •  Wooden Skewers (with a pointy end)
  •  Gumballs
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Small Plastic Bags
  • Black Pipe Cleaners
  • Small Wiggly Eyes
  • Glue Stick

Gumball Spider Halloween Favors | Mirabelle Creations for TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Simple how tos:

  1. Using a wooden skewer, poke a hole in the bottom of a gumball. If your kids are helping you assemble these, make sure a grown up does this part.
  2. Remove the skewer and stick lollipop stick through the bottom layer of the gumball.
  3. Place small plastic bag over gumball. I simply cut one side of a plastic sandwich bag and used that to cover the gumball.
  4. Cut two black pipe cleaners in half, so you have four pieces each approximately 6 inches long.
  5. Wrap pipe cleaners around the top of lollipop stick, where it meets the gumball until you have eight legs.

Pop in and visit me at Mirabelle Creations. And as always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

rustic chic autumn bridal shower

Rustic Chic Autumn Bridal Shower

Hi everyone! I’m Kristie and a new contributor to The Celebration Shoppe! So excited to be here!

One trend I’m loving now is the easy breezy style of rustic chic parties, showers and weddings. The decor and food can be so effortless, and an early autumn evening is the perfect time to take advantage of the lingering twilight and host this kind of relaxed soiree.

Pick a pretty party invitation to set the tone, like this one from my design collection on Minted, then pull a farm table into the back yard and dress it up with a bohemian mix of candlesticks, mismatched china and chairs. Add simple twinkling votives, a fall-inspired menu, and some easy DIY projects using natural elements like leaves, apples and artichokes. Enjoy a relaxed evening with your friends and celebrate the start of a beautiful season.

Want to create this autumn bridal shower look?

Plus, embellish it with my FREE orange and black spider Halloween favor tags! Guests will be giddy when you thank them for “dropping by!”

  • Black craft paint (mine was Martha Stewart brand)
  • Silver Sharpie
  • Marshmallows (or other goodie)
  • Orange ribbon
  • The Celebration Shoppe’s FREE printable Halloween favor tags (Note: The fonts might look odd on the scribd.com preview, but they’ll be perfect once you download!)

Quick steps:

  1. Pipe some black paint onto a flat surface.
  2. Press your thumb into the paint (this could be a lot of fun for your kiddos!) and press to the center of the cello. This will be your spider’s body.
  3. Allow the paint to dry for 5-7 minutes (dry to touch).
