Cute as a Button Baby Shower / Birthday Party

I am so excited to share this theme with you. We used it for a baby shower but it would make a cute first birthday party or gender reveal party as well.

A few months back my friend Dara and I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for a dear friend. The unique part of this shower is they were not finding out the gender of the baby but the shower would be after the baby arrived. We decided to go with a cute as a button theme with pastel neutral colors.

I designed the invitation using more of the green and decided we would play up either pink or blue once the baby arrived. We would only have about 2 weeks to pull everything together. By using a neutral color scheme we could have almost everything ready. 


I started be designing the printables using pink, blue, green, and yellow with stripes and a subtle polka dot pattern.


 
This cute as a button banner was the back drop to our party table.
 

We were so excited to here that the new baby was a girl. With 2 big brothers this was exciting news and we jumped at the chance to use pink everywhere we could. I created this party sign to welcome the guests and to be used for Baby Quinn's room after the party.
 
This Cute as a Button baby shower centerpiece was annother fun way to person the party with baby Quinn's name. It is available for a boy or neutral as well.

Another friend of ours made these gorgeous button cupcakes for the shower. They were the perfect sweet addition to the table. And so yummy! Even pink inside. 

Since I did not need traditional cupcake toppers this time I used our printable toppers on label paper to make stickers for the cups. It was such an easy way to dress up an otherwise plain item. Add our yellow striped paper straws and we had an adorable drink station. 

 
One of my favorite additions to any party is our polka dot balloons. They are available in so many colors and really add a pop of color to a party space or entrance.

 
I created this cute button garland to go across the front of the table. A circle cutter, hole, punch and some ribbon make this an easy addition to any button party.
 
Dara made this cute button Q for baby Quinn's nursery.
 
We added some buttons in our party colors sprinkled across the table.
 
Orginally these cute button lollipops were going to be individually wrapped as party favors. We ended up adding them to our party table instead. Guests munched on them throughout the party.
I found a button lollipop mold at my local cake decor store. Add some pink food coloring to basic white cholocate candy melts and voila!
 
Baby shower games are not one of my favorite things. I find that most have been done way to many times or are kind of gross. We wanted it to be fun for everyone no matter who was at the party. We had grandmas to 6year olds. I fould inspiration online for a candy name game. You try to match the candy name to a list of pregnancy and baby related sayings. Each guest was given a printable list of the candy names and we read the saying out loud. Whomever yelled the answer first got the candy bar that matched. (ex. Twins = Mike & Ike)
I am including the printable candy and answers lists at the bottom of the post FREE to my readers.
 
The person who guessed the most correct got this HUGE HerSHEys bar.
 
Overall it was a fun cute shower perfect for a new baby girl.
Welcome to the world Baby Quinn. We cannot wait to see you grow.
 
This printable party package is available in my store.

Movie Night 13th Birthday Party

My little sister turned 13 in March and wanted a fun party for the big milestone. Having kids all under 6 finding a theme grown up enough was more of a challenge. My parents have an awesome media room with a projection screen so that was the start of our movie night theme.
 
We started the look with a theater curtain inspired backdrop. I will tell you my secret. This is completely no sew. I pinned the fabric into folds along the top. So easy and such a fun statement piece.

Next I added the 5M Creations Movie Night Printables. This fun banner features red and white stripes, large black dots on white, and fun theater inspired images. It can be done in other sayings as well. Concessions or Happy Birthday would be fun. 

These fun centerpieces add some height and color to my table. I used one on each side to balance the space. This one is personalized with the birthday girl's name and age. 

 
The large signs I created were one of my favorite additions to this party. It gave a pop of color to the backdrop and gives a purpose as well featuring the movie title. I also created a huge concessions sign you will see in a bit.
 

The movie of choice.
 
This cake was inspired by a find on pinterest. I am blessed to have a wonderful cake decorator who executed it perfectly. It looks like it was cutsom made for this party. 

There were so many special touches on this cake. A name sign, 13 on the red carpet, movie reels, camera, action signs, whimsical stars, and lots of shimmery gold accents.

I knew that I wanted a movie candy display. We used traditional boxed candy like you would get at the theater in 6 varieties, 

pretzels and licorice. I added a 5M Creations tent card cut it in half as a tag instead. Add some ribbon to dress up your container.



The candy bar with our polka dot favor bags was the hit of the party.
 
I was so lucky that my parents media room has this fun popcorn machine. I purchased classic popcorn cups and created a popcorn printable to add to the space. No movie party is complete without popcorn.

We also had a beverage station with retro glass soda bottles and our striped paper straws.

Our upstairs space was used for burgers and hot dogs and a red carpet experience.


I set up a table with photo props for the party guests to get silly.

Everyone got in on the fun. 


It was such a fun party perfect for a 13 year old.
