Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you all have a fabulous day! This lovely SHABBY CHIC & LACE BIRTHDAY PARTY reminded me of Mother’s day so I thought it was a perfect feature. The celebration was submitted by Aliza Cohen of Wonderland Parties.

There are so many charming elements and fabulous ideas in this shabby chic party that would be perfect for a wedding, bridal shower, birthday party and so many other events. A few of the highlights to look for are:

  • The ribbon garland backdrop
  • The stunning multi tiered ruffle table cloth made from fabrics of various colors and materials

  • The assorted milk glass display dishes
  • The mason jar drinking glasses pre-filled with fresh raspberries and lemons
  • and MORE!

Here’s what Aliza said about the party- “This was actually a photoshoot for a new magazine coming out next month called JCREATE. This magazine was started to promote crafts and creativity for young children. It had been abundantly clear that the children of the generation are part of a technological world where creativity has almost no place except when choosing your next profile name for your newest video game. This magazine was started as a way to revive creativity in the classroom and at home. Its pages are filled with ideas and tips to help get your child off of the couch and into a craft room!

Everything you see in these pictures was handcrafted by our team members. From the ribbon, lace and burlap backdrop to the tablecloth and layered ruffle table skirt, paper wheels and paper fans to the favor bags and cupcake liner pom pom balls. The doily paper cones and the burlap and lace wrapped mason jar vases. We even made the dum dum lollipop flower ball. We also loved the idea of wrapping mason jar pint size glasses with twine and embellishing them with a handcrafted paper flower. All the flowers that you see were handcrafted! From the satin ribbon rosettes to the organza ribbon petal flower. All of the paper flowers were purchased and put together using a hot glue gun and then decorated with lovely little ivory pearls.

We even baked all of the desserts! Which was a first for us because we are definitely not bakers! :) We made cupcakes, cake pops, the two tiered frosted centerpiece cake, chocolate dipped marshmallow sticks and chocolate dipped old fashion candy sticks, garnished with edible pearls.

We sincerely hope that the message you take away from this is that you can create a stunning party on a low budget by making all the decorations by yourself and with your kids!!
And remember cut yourself some slack. Some projects may not come out exactly as you had hoped but we’re all human. Move on to the next project,+ no one will know about the ones that never came together.”
