Here’s what Ashley said about planning the party- “For my daughter’s 8th birthday she told me she wanted her party to be Purple, Pink and Black and a fun theme for her friends. So we decided on doing a rock star party with that color scheme and then also added some teal. From there I designed her Rock Star Printables and we used guitars and lots of stars throughout all her party decorations. We picked bold colors to really stand out against the black.
DIY Projects: We did lots of DIY projects for her party, always fun and normally saves some omoney making the items yourself. First I made the Name Blocks, bought a 2×4 and cut it in’t 5in and 3in blocks and then spray painted them all black. I then used my handy Cricut and cut our her name using Glitter cardstock. Second we made the glitter Star Garland , using our cricut we also cut out some glitter stars in 2 different sizes and taped them to clear fishing line. This garland was used for our back drop. We also created the center pieces using our guitar extra larger printables, hot pink tulle, and blume boxes, perfect for your table center pieces. We also made the Tassel Garland for the backs of the chairs. I had some paper mache boxes so I painted them pink and teal and we wrapped ribbon around them for the dessert table, to give the cake plates some different heights.
Dessert Table: To start with I contacted some of my favorite vendors and sent them some sample printables so we could keep the same theme and colors throughout all our desserts. Roni from Roni’s Sugar Creations sent me the most delicious chocolate caramels apples with big purple and pink bows and them we added small glitter stars to the middle of the bows. We put them on really pretty black trays we got from Nikka of Triple M Good Parties she makes really pretty cake plates and stands. I also got some amazing cake pops from Cupcake Cuties Bakery, we sent her some of our striped straws and we cut them down do fit perfectly for our cake pops, she added glitter swirl’s to each cake pop so fun and cute. Ang from Icings by Ang sent me the most amazing decorated sugar cookies, her art work on the rock star cookies is stunning. Next I ordered some Fondant Cupcake Toppers to match our Printables from Rachel Skvaril of Fondant Fingers, and they matched perfectly. I also ordered chocolate covered Oreos from Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses she incorporated our chevron print which was amazing on the Oreos along with other designs to match. I stayed up late as always and did my midnight baking the night before the party to make some yummy Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting to go on each side of the dessert table. I also go some bonier bites from the store and added leftover buttercream frosting in star shapes. We also added some chocolate Hershey’s candy bars using our Printable wrappers on each end of the table along with some Hershey’s kisses with our printable rock star mini stickers.”

This is what Stefanie said about the party- “I created custom labels and party flags for a sweet customer recently. Candace was planning a party for her daughter’s 8th birthday. Her daughter is a huge Demi Lovato fan and Candace styled a stunning I Heart Demi Lovato Party for the occasion. I loved all of the details from the party so much. The dessert table included chocolate covered Oreos and raspberry coconut cubes, chocolate pretzel microphones, vanilla cake pops, edible image cookies and macarons. The stunning cake was a red velvet cake filled with cream cheese on one tier and lemon cake and cream cheese frosting on the other tier. Yum!”
