Church Spring Party 2008

This year we did a birthday theme. Here is the flyer for the event. {We put it together real quick but it turned out cute.}

The tablecloths the church owns are red so our color palette options are a little limited. We tied a red balloon on every chair and then I made a bunch of different party hats. Everyone looked so cute and festive in their hats. We also set up a little backdrop with a few props and had people get their pictures taken in front of it. It was a lovely night. {Thank you to Brooke and Christian for babysitting!} Total cost of decorating supplies: $60. The main costs were renting a small helium tank and paper goods.

    This looks so fun-I can’t imagine anyone walking in and not instantly having a child-like smile and giddiness.

    I love your ideas! My son is turning one in a week, and I’m trying to think of some cute yellow decorations, or something to do with polka-dots. Any ideas?? I’d love to get your thoughts!!

    Those party hats are as cute as can be! Why didn’t I ever think of using ribbon instead of elastic string?

    What a great Relief Society Birthday Party! The hats are pretty as well as the color selection. It is so nice that church parties are becoming pretty and tasteful. This year we had the best planning group. They had Great decor and the most delicious chicken salad on croissants & a wonderful spinach strawberry and walnut salad.

    Jordan,
    I love your blog! I stop by often to see what fun crafty things you are up to. I too am looking for some creative ways to liven up my house but I get a little overwhelmed with all the details. I wanted to see if you know of any good (not to expensive) decoraters in the Houston TX area that could help. Thanks so much!

    Beautiful! It’s so nice to see a R.S. birthday party that doesn’t include pioneer dress, or oil lamps. I have recently been called as the new Enrichment Leader for our ward, and am so excited to use your blog as inspiration. Does anyone know any other good places to get Enrichment ideas?

    Oh my gosh… I wish we had a budget to do something like that in my RS. We currently have NO budget, which makes my calling not so fun, since all of our money goes to activities committee. Can you tell I’m in a singles ward?

    Those party hats are delightful!
