Vicky from The City Cradle blog created a whimsical birthday party filled with candy-colored decorations and old-fashioned games.
The chandelier, made from pieces of cut felt (575 pieces to be exact), served as the original inspiration for the rest of the decor, with little circles popping up everywhere from the outdoor seating to being strung along on wires.
The tee-pee quickly became a favorite hideaway for the mini guests. Vicky made it out of a thrifted bed ruffle, three sticks of wood, a bit of ribbon, and layers of strung felt circles.
The kids were directed to the activities, such as a homemade game of Twister, Connect Four, hula hoops, and a homemade photo booth (see here for instructions), by hand-painted chalkboard signs.
They created candy bracelets for the kids to wear out of dot candy with Velcro on the back. The kids also scarfed down bite-sized vegetables, corn dogs, and barbecue.
One of the biggest hits of the party was the sherbert stand, which served up gooey delishness with toppings served from a vintage model Ferris wheel that Vicky found in the clearance section at her local JCPenny's. Various treats and juice boxes were wrapped in adorable customized labels, which you can print for free here.
Such a darling party! Great job, Vicky!
