Welcome Summer, and welcome to the Blog Hop! We have some hot ideas to get your party on, so if you came from Angela's blog, you're on the right track. If not, make sure you start at Shannon's blog so you don't miss a single sizzlin' project.
I've been working on a Quinceanera party for a friend. Her dress is a hot orange and pink, and after the Mass is a Masquerade Ball. Here are the invitations I made.
Half of them are exploding boxes, with a photo of my friend's daughter inside, as well as the actual wording of the invitation.
The other half are cards that lie flat and can be
I made 150 invitations all total!
The next thing I worked on were favors.
I wanted to continue with the orange and hot pink colors, but keep the design simple to keep the focus on the gifts inside.
So as I was browsing the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby, I came upon packs of hot pink favor bags. I was able to spice them up a little, and give them the same flair as the invitations.
I love taking a cast-off or slightly wounded item and make it sparkling new in a different way! I don't think I have paid full price for a year's worth of projects so far. How about you--do you upcycle??
This last photo is of the champagne toast centerpiece.
Since all the young ladies and gentlemen of the court will be underage,
the champagne toast will be done with sparkling grape juice.
But that doesn't make the centerpiece any less of a showcase item,
as you can see.
Did I mention that each table will have its own fabulous centerpiece, each holding a bottle of sparkling grape juice (or champagne if you're at the adults' tables), each colorfully decorated in hot pink and deep orange feather boas and masks!!
That's all for my part in the Summer Party Blog Hop. Please leave a little love before you hop on over to Lori's Blog.
