I've been meaning to share this fun playdate I hosted at my house for my daughter and her favorite little peeps (and Mommy's) :) It was such a fun day! I submitted this party to Pizzazzerie's Summer Stripes Tablescapes Contest. I didn't win but you can view the fabulous winners here.
It was a super chilly day here (was planning on going to the park in our subdivision) but we made the best of it! :) I feel like I am always working, but I am also always trying to include my daughter into what I do. As soon as Courtney from Pizzazzerie announced she was having this contest I knew I wanted to give it a shot but had literally no time as I was in a complete June Wedding Season coma, as I like to call it. I knew I didn't want to just have a party for no reason so thought of having a playdate and went with it :) One of my mama besties came over the night before and helped me wrap water bottles, hang banners and create cupcake toppers :)
On to the good stuff....the PLAYDATE. Here's the invite I emailed out....all of the kids were dressed in orange/yellow/green! It was super cute! Since Summer is almost over, I plan to sell this collection in my etsy shop next year with some extra's :)
I purchased most of the decor and goodies from my local Dollar Store or had it laying around in my party stash. Orange striped napkins, straws and striped cupcake wrappers I bought from my favorite party store, Shop Sweet Lulu.
I love this color scheme! So summery and neutral :) I forgot to take pictures of the food but I served PB&J, Mini Turkey/Ham/Cheese on sweet rolls, green grapes, carrots, and lots o' sweets! :)
My favorite part - :) I made stripes on the cupcakes using sprinkles.
I striped grocery store sugar cookies with M&M's :)
My daughter is the super silly gal in the middle :)
My friend's pretty baby....we matched perfectly :)
Thanks to everyone that came! My daughter had a BLAST playing with all her favorite pals :)
