Our sweet customer Michelle sent us photos this weekend of her daughter's fabulous 2nd birthday party. Her theme was an ELMO girl's party in pink, orange and red polka dots!
Michelle compiled a detailed list of her finds and I'll share those at the bottom of the post. She made a lot of the decorations herself and her friend Stacy Hart Photography of Birmingham, Alabama beautifully photographed the entire event.
Let's start with the gorgeous pink and orange polka dot ribbon topiary centerpiece above...wow! Michelle made this using our easy topiary tutorial. She added the pipe cleaner curly-q's for a whimsical touch and I just love that!
Michelle picked the Girl's Elmo Party printable collection from Shindigs and it is a huge set of goodies for $29!
The infamous HowDoesShe? balloon wreath tutorial came in handy for Michelle - more pink, red and orange balloons and more of my favorite pipe cleaner curly-q's make this a special and inviting door decoration for her daughter's 2nd birthday.
Ahh...the food table! Amazing! More topiaries, more polka dots, Dorothy's fish bowls and even our popular cake/cupcake box tower tutorial all decked out with Elmo printables!
What a beautiful day for a party! I love how she decorated the tent with tissue poms, polka dot balloons, little red chairs and a polka dot table topper. Looks like a magazine, Michelle!
Thank you for sharing your daughter's special day with us, and all of your hard work! Here's to you and your beautiful family, Michelle!
