Today, Design Team Member Marjan Pel shows us how to decorate for any little boy’s dream birthday party. She’s put together party decor, games, and treat bags and tags all using the Birthday Wishes collection. Read on to check it out.
My youngest son turned seven at the end of June, and he wanted a dinosaur themed birthday party. We invited his whole class. All children at that age love dinosaurs, even girls. So I used all sorts of colors like blue, green, black, pink, orange and yellow. The Birthday Wishes paperpad was just perfect for the banner, the treats and bottle hangers. I made a fun can knock down game too.
The perforated paper shapes in the form of banners are just perfect for a birthday party. I embellished the banners with patterned paper and glitter paper and adhered two dinosaurs at both ends. For the bottle hangers, I cut out a bunch of different cute dinosaurs with the help of my Silhouette SD. I used two different circle punches and a border punch by American Crafts to create these fun tags.
I used old cans for the can knock down game. I adhered pretty paper in different, pretty, and colourful designs with double-sided adhesive and I used some washi tape in cute colors to embellish the cans. Then I adhered different dinosaurs and punched circles with glitter numbers from 1 to 6.
For the treats I made some file folder candy holders with help of my envelope punch board. I embellished these candy holders with circles and more cute dinosaurs. I used baker´s twine to close them.
The children at the birthday party loved the bottles with lemonade, and the can knockdown game was quite popular.
The treats were given at the end of the party. The girls loved the pink ones and the boys were happy with the other colors. All in all, it was a perfect birthday party and we had a fun day!
