I am famous for going a little overboard, and even I admitted it this time... I made a LOT of extra little decorations and special touches for the 2013 Birthday Bash last Saturday. I chose a color scheme based on the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Papers, using the Marina Mist, Real Red and Daffodil Delight papers from that pack. Polka dots and stripes were my theme, and I think it turned out super cute! I forgot that we used every single table in the joint for an event this size, though, so all my cute things were kinda crammed together...
Congratulations to these Birthday Bash participants on winning the door prize bundles at our event Saturday! Lynn D--#1 (scrapbooking bundle); Brenda B--#2 (girly stuff bundle); and Barb P--#3 (tools of the trade bundle).
My favorite touch was the little glassine candy bags (leftover from the Holiday Packaging Bundle special last month) that I decorated with the new Pretty Petites stamp set and the Petite Curly Label punch, both reward options for Sale A Bration 2013. The stamps are a set of eight and there was one that said "YUM" so it was perfect! Everyone agreed that the punch and stamp set will be tops on their list of priorities when ordering begins for Sale A Bration on January 22nd!
Of course, the accessory every hostess covets the most for her party is the one the guests hopefully wear on their faces--big smiles! I'm lucky in that 95% of MY parties are Stampin' Up events, in which the guests ALWAYS arrive AND leave with big smiles on their faces! I stack the deck with cute cards and lots of candy!! Many thank to all ya'll who keep thinking I'm fun to hang out with. : )
