It’s hard to believe it’s been three months already, but I am finally getting around to posting pictures of E’s sleepover.
All of the invitations and party printables were custom made and will be available online soon. If you are looking to purchase them immediately, email me. We were able to make so many decorations from the printable package. I loved how everything turned out!
We attached cutouts of the pillow design from the invitation to lollipop sticks from Michael’s and used them as cupcake toppers.
We filled these boxes from Michael’s with all kinds of spa goodies. We wrapped the tops in paper from the printables.
I printed paper and glued them together to make a table runner.
We mod podged the same paper to a cardboard E from JoAnn’s… and also used it for the banners.
We made individual s’mores packages for each girl. You can get the boxes here.
I just love how they turned out.
We made several attempts to dip the balloons in glitter. The first prototypes had way more glitter, but I didn’t account for the weight of the glitter weighing down the balloons. This was the most glitter that we could apply and still allow them to float.
It’s no big secret that I am a lover of gold spray paint. I wanted to share yet another tryst in our long, laborious affair.
My parents bought this table in 1977, the year they bought our beach condo. It was in rough shape (totally rusted and scratched) and didn’t make the cut after the redesign. So I loaded it into the truck and hauled it home hoping to use it somewhere on our back porch that was being built at the time.
Well, 20 minutes and a few coats of gsp and she has a whole new life- currently being used as a bar cart on the porch.
Because it’s outside 24/7 there is some minor patina that occurs, but I love it. It add character.
For those of you that have been following #theneverendingporchproject on Instagram, this post is a long time coming. Almost a year ago, I started working with Jeff at Great Falls Landscapes on the concept.
We worked for weeks on the plan.. And finally came up with perfection.
There were a lot of changes along the way. And while it took what seems like forever to build, I couldn’t be happier with the end results. It’s funny, before finding GFL, I had initially hired someone else, and ultimately fired him two weeks in due to his lack of creativity. So glad that I found them! Jeff and Lance were amazing to work with and really “went” with my crazy ideas..
(This was right before E’s Party.. pics to come on that later..)
