Sneak Peak: Little Princess' 3rd Birthday Party

Well, another year has passed, and I am in planning mode for Little Princess's 3rd Birthday party.  This year, she asked for a pony party, so I have been designing an all new set of printable party supplies with lots of ponies and a few unicorns, too.  I'm pretty excited about this new party printable.  The bright colors with the sweet pink pony makes my daughter smile every time she sees a new printable pop up around the house.

I will post photos from the party in a few weeks, but for now, here is a sneak peak. The invitation is available for sale via my Etsy shop here or click on the photo below.

A good friend of mine recently asked me to assist her with designing some party printables for her son's 3rd Birthday Party.  He absolutely loves the PBS show "Super Why", so all of the party items were designed with this theme in mind.

 My friend was hesitant about tackling the assembly of a printable party.  She claimed that she has no skills when it comes to craft projects, but I assured her that it was only a matter of printing and cutting.  I, certainly, think that she did a great job.  And the look on her son's face when he saw the room, was just priceless!

Our "Super Mom" provided an option of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from a local grocery baker.  Each cupcake was embellished with a topper that featured one of the main Super Why characters and personalized with our Super Reader's age.

 Our "Super Reader" held his party at Pump It Up, which is a great place to host a party for preschool-aged children.  We had limited time to set up the party space, but the festive colors worked well with our Super Reader color scheme of Blue and Lime Green.

One of my favorite printable party supplies is the often forgotten four inch party circle.  There are SO many options for using this type of printable in ways that can make a big impact.  Two of my favorite are showcased here.  Our "Super Mom" took the two circles and sandwiched them around the string of a helium balloon.  A dozen balloons were spaced along the party tables adding height and festivity to the room.  A second set of four inch circles were used to top the cupcake stand.

Everyone had a great time, and left with a package of treats to remember the day.  Of course, the treat bag was topped with a printable topper.  To purchase the printable party supplies featured in this party, please see my Etsy shop listing here or click on the photo below.
