I love a good party challenge, and when the prizes are party pretties from suppliers like My Little Jedi and Shop Sweet Lulu, that's just icing on the cake. The challenge: come up with a unique party theme incorporating at least 4 of the items shown (visit challenge post for complete details).
When I first heard about the Cake. Party Inspiration Challenge, I started to secretly brainstorm ideas in my office cubicle. With my 40th birthday just months away (yep, that's right, the big 4-0), I incorporated all of the items to design a "Pushing 40" celebration (hope my husband is reading this...hint...hint).
To create the dessert table backdrop, I would cover the wall with chevron envelopes (1). A banner made by spelling out "PUSHING FORTY" with the alphabet cups (2) would be draped across the front of the table. On the birthday cake, I would hang mini chevron bunting across two summer paper straws (3). Tiny push up pop containers (4) filled with my favorite dessert, would be labeled with "Pushing 40" printable ribbons (5). For the photo booth, I would hang gold glitter garlands (6) from Steph Loves Ben vertically from the ceiling and use the chalkboard speech bubbles (7) from Playing Grown Up as props. Iomoi pencils (8) could be used as handles for additional photo props, or given as party favors.
So that's my entry. Are you up for the challenge?
