Welcome to another CSS party hop! It's no secret that I love throwing parties, even mini ones *grin* I'm going to do less talking and more showing with this set.
I styled a bright and cheerful cherry-themed party. It all started with that aqua and red polka dotted length of fabric. I found it in my stash and decided that stripes in those same colors would compliment the polkas perfectly.
Every party needs a matching drink, right? Ha. I love the tiny tags, with their little aqua leaf each. I tied them around the bottles of cherry punch and added more aqua and red with my striped straws.
There are so many party hat templates available online. I downloaded one and cut it out of white cardstock, and then used the long stripe images to fill the entire hat. I love party hats. As soon as you see one, you know there's gonna be a part-ay. I dressed up the front with the same cherry image as my drink tag, and used a part of the cupcake stand die to mat my white circle. I'm-a-gonna curtsy for that one. hee.
I know favors usually go at the end of a party post, but the topper is designed the same way as the party hat. I'd like to point out that absolutely no gummy cherries were eaten in the making of this party. It was all for show, and then thrown out. You don't know how proud I am to say that I resisted the sour gummy goodness (badness, I know, but they are my kryptonite...)
The pie, on the other hand...
You can't let a homemade cherry pie go to waste! It was delicious. I created a simple banner for the top of the pie and a little label to identify it. Everything is cuter when it's labeled...
Oh, and these? These nice, big, aqua and red-shadowed letters? Yeah, my lips are sealed... but you'll find out more about these dies in just a few more days...
On either side of the banner, I hung up a fun flower. Do you remember *this post* where I shared that I created the flower using heart dies? Same flower. I'm just teasing you now. The tutorial will come very soon.
I hope you liked my party! Now, party-hop your way over to these fun blogs:
