Summer Parties

Hello there Glitz fans! With summer in full swing we have been crafting decorations for my daughter's 14th birthday party. I can hardly believe that she'll be a high school freshman in just a few months! Time continues to march on! 

My daughter asked for a up-to-date version of shabby chic decor. As the hostess of the party, I wanted to keep things simple and fun. The invitations were made by sewing a sequins filled vellum pouch, then layering a variety of "Brightside" papers from the 6x6 paper pad. Cutting strips allows for making several invitations with the same design but different patterned papers. 





I added a few party supplies by adding washi tape flags to straws, wrapping a little patterned paper around a favor box and taping a sentiment to a framed mirror. The garland included pom-poms constructed from white cupcake wrappers, and die cut butterflies. In just under an hour I was able to make all of the decorations we needed for her party.




"Modern Shabby-Chic Birthday Decor" supplies:
Glitz Design "Brightside" paper: Plaid, Chunky Chevron, Bits & Pieces
Glitz Design "Brightside" 6x6 paper pad
Glitz Design wash tapes - mint chain & cherries
other: kraft card stock, vellum, sequins, baker's twine, mini clothes pins
