Gardening Party, Sister’s Birthday

Beautiful sisters, with their bright floral dresses, soft ringlet hair, shining blue eyes and adorable little smiles. These pretty little girls deserve a special little party to cherish and enjoy.

Dainty whites and vibrant pinks mingled with brown paper sack lunches and trendy urban gardening. Inspired by their urban farm life, I really enjoyed mixing the feminine and refined decor with a more surreal and down-to-earth activity… terracotta pot painting and wildflower seed planting!

Offered right from the start, sack lunches for the kids and finger foods for the adults. In my experience providing sack lunches for the kids is the most practical way to make sure the little ones get both a satisfying and healthy meal, while reserving the more elaborate appetizers for the adults, ensuring that everyone is happy.

Mixing a variety of intricate buntings and garlands is a beautiful and easy way to decorate for any event. A handful of simple garlands with more refined pieces like this Doily Bunting is sure to catch the eye. ThespoolroomIMG_8872_2

This brightly colored heart garland from our Valentine’s Day Brunch is a real favorite!

Finally, using some of my stash of stored-up fabric, I simply cut some strips and looped them onto a rope for a quick bunting. It worked beautifully,  filling up empty space and bringing all the colors together in one piece.

Using some of this fabulous double sided tape, intricate hand-crafted silk flowers stood alone in their beauty and grace. CharmingChicDecorIMG_8892

The details of these flowers are amazing and they make the perfect party decorations… brightening any room.

Take a peek at these adorable little favor boxes! Since the kids had such exciting craft favors to take home we decided to treat the mamas with a little something too: a plantable paper favor full of wildflower seeds and its very own spot of dirt and mini-pot. NatureFavors

The highlight? Painting flower pots, playing with soil, and planting butterfly paper full of wildflower seeds!IMG_8925

Mini Terra-cotta pots & pretty recycled paper butterflies ready to be planted are a gift that keeps on giving. The little ones are so excited, waiting with anticipation for their wildflowers to grow!  NatureFavorsIMG_8951

Letting their creativity flourish, mixing the colors seemed to be quite amusing

IMG_0284IMG_8974IMG_0382IMG_0380IMG_0391Couldn’t resist the fresh earth and a chance to pull up a chair and play for a while. We hope our little party inspires you to enjoy the simple pleasures and remember to stop and smell the… wildflowers =)
