I do find it very ironic that we made snow, but had just over a foot of snow that fell the few days before her party. We had plenty of snow. But, like Olaf learns in the movie… snow melts. So fake snow was needed. I found these really cute little blue and white sequin balls at Michael’s craft store. They came in a package all together. Actually Nora was the one to find them and determined they were the perfect Elsa dress color. They kind of go with my decor year round. The color at least, I am not so sure about decorating with sequins year round. We will see. The full tutorial on the fake snow can be found here. I did not think I needed to re type it all for the same process and results.
This is how the table looked for her friend birthday party on Saturday. The one on Sunday is the one featuring the amazing cake from my mother in law. For her friend party we just had them all decorate cup cakes. Easy for us, and a activity for them. I call that pro parenting. Tomorrow I will be sharing a great thing Nora decided to do with her gifts. It made us very proud. I still will be sharing the activities we did for the party. A few more areas of party decorations, and the cake. I warned you that it was a extravaganza. You don’t throw those words around carelessly, this is huge, BIG, tons of stuff. Too much to squeeze into one post. So I am squeezing it into one week.
Have any of you ever made some snowflakes? Do you feel my finger cramping pain?
