Sandcastle Place Cards

by Kathleen Ballos

Remember the mini Putz houses that you see in the winter time? Well that’s what inspired these glittering sandcastle place cards! Eating picnic snacks was one of my favorite things about going to the beach when I was younger – if you’re not close to the water, wouldn’t it be fun to host a beach picnic party indoors? And if you’re looking for more miniature beach party supplies, try these beach cake toppers!

Now that it’s almost officially the start of summer, I think it would be so much fun to host a summer solstice party! Even if you’re nowhere near an ocean or lake, make these miniature chairs and umbrella to add a beachy vibe to your cake. (P.S. – How to perfectly frost a messy cake!)

Jumbo Popsicle Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I love it when decorations are affordable, super quick, and make big impact and this popsicle garland definitely fits the bill. In case you don’t recognize them, the popsicles are made of chopped up pool noodles! They come in so many different colors that you can make your garland popsicles whatever “flavors” you like – and how about making real popsicles to match your color scheme? And don’t forget to make a giant popsicle piñata!

Bon Voyage Party Invitations

by Kathleen Ballos

I love making eye-catching invitations – I feel like you get RSVPs much quicker when the invitation isn’t just a plain text email. These paper lantern globe invitations are perfect if you’re throwing a bon voyage party for a friend. Wouldn’t it be fun to make one from a giant paper lantern for party decor? Just hang it with some happy decorations and you’re good to go!
