Wordless Wednesday: Party Prep

My son’s birthday party is this Friday.  We invited his friends from school, and we are keeping it relatively small this year.  We had around thirty-five, yes 35 kids at his party last year.  It was chaos, but fun all at the same time.

We are using a Mad Science Theme, and having a company come to our house to do some experiments for the kids.  And of course, we will be serving food. 

But I have to go with a theme, and overdo it as usual.  Our invites have rainbow colors on them, so I decided to go with a rainbow colored theme.  According to my new BFF, Pinterest, rainbows are all the rage!  And I had to cruise some craft sites for ideas….right?  Well here’s a sneak peek of what I have worked on so far.

Birthday balloon wreath done! My fingers are practically numb. I found the tutorial on howdoesshe.com.Balloon Wreath. Tutorial on how does she.  Just take the original tutorial & multiply it x 2.  My wreath was bigger, much much bigger.

This afternoon's tissue pom pom project is done! More party prep being done later.Tissue Paper Pom Poms. Easy peasy…The hardest part is going to buy the tissue paper from the store. Tutorial from Martha, yep, that Martha.

My daughter (turning 4 in July) asked for a unicorn party for her birthday, so I'm expanding that and making it a rainbows and unicorns party. Pinterest has been AWESOME for gathering rainbow-themed ideas for the party. I have an entire board dedicated to just that! I love the balloon wreath, but man, that looks time consuming. We will be having rainbow pom poms though! Can't wait to see the pics from the party.

The rainbow theme is super cute; I have a dozen things pinned that are rainbows. I'm hoping one of my daughter will want a rainbow theme for their birthdays this summer.
