Madagascar 3: Circus Themed Kid’s Party

{It’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog. As we all know at times life can be hectic and pull us in other directions, however I’ve never stopped loving event decor nor have I stopped planning events or parties – I just haven’t had the opportunity to share with you in awhile. Keep an eye out over the next couple months as I’ve got a few events I’d like to share with you on the blog!} XOXO ~ Elvira 

Madagascar 3: Circus Themed Birthday Party

Those that have been following me for some time know that I go all out every year for my son’s birthday party. His 1st birthday was a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme, his 2nd birthday was a Jake & the Neverland Pirates theme, and for his 3rd birthday last year I went all out with a Madagascar 3 Circus themed birthday party! This year’s party was over-the-top, full of DIY projects, fun, wild, colorful, and full of sugary, sweet delectable goodies = guaranteed success.

As usual I made sure that I didn’t miss a planning detail or decor element and Natalie from Natalie Isabel Photography did an amazing job capturing all of the creative party details that you will see below.  After I decided on this year’s theme for my son’s birthday party, I went to work on creating the invitation.

FOOD

When it came to food, I decided to stick with the theme to start the guests were able to help themselves to salted shelled peanuts or buttery popcorn. When it came to lunch I  stayed simple and went with a hot dog and hot link bar with all the fix in’s, chips, and veggie tray.

 

 

DESSERT TABLE

The dessert table was my pride and joy, I’m just surprised I was able to keep all the guests at bay until it was time to enjoy the delicious goodies. The dessert table consisted of the following tasty goodies: Cracker Jacks, cotton candy, animal crackers, bundtinis (lemon, red velvet, chocolate, and white raspberry flavors), cake from Albertson’s. I created a Circus backdrop with pinwheels for the table, a birthday banner, tassel garland, a painted decorative tub, colorful circle cutouts, decorative tags for all the items, and a yellow fringe swag to go across the cake. The favors were adorable large lollipops I got from the 99 cent store adorned with creative stickers I made on Moo to fit the circus theme! (Click on the photos below to view a larger detailed picture.)

 

DECOR & DIY

Other decor and DIY projects besides the dessert table were the centerpieces (birthday hats, balloons, mini gum ball machines, Madagascar cutout, colorful circle cutouts, Madagascar confetti), hanging window and door fringes, Madagascar 3 birthday sign, flag bunting, food place cards, photo booth backdrop, photo props and sign, framed signs for the balloon artist and makeup artist, framed Madagascar, & wood welcome sign! Also, there is one more important detail that really turned the party space into a circus theme and that was the colorful and affordable beautiful linens from Linen Tablecloth! From the pumpkin round table cloths for the guests table, to the vibrant red, to the gorgeous ivory linen tablecloths – it really brought my party to life! (The really do offer quality linens at very affordable prices, I encourage you to consider using them for your next event.)

 

 

ENTERTAINMENT

Since January weather is always unpredictable in southern CA, I decided to book an inside venue.  However, my challenge was how do I entertain 25 kids indoors without going crazy and running around like a crazy lady! So, I made the best decision ever and decided to hire entertainers for the birthday party. I hired a local children’s entertainment company called Creative Parties for an hour. Lisa, the owner, was great to work with – flexible, personable, creative, experienced, and caring. She was really great at listening to my needs and wants for the party and deciding upon great entertainers and entertainment that were a perfect match for our circus themed party. We had 3 party entertainers show up – a clown, lion, and helper with a top hat. These entertainers were awesome and the kid’s loved them from the beginning! They sang songs, played games, did activities, and kept all the kids and even some adults entertained for an hour, ending with pictures and a birthday song for the birthday boy. I am really glad I chose Creative Parties – they definitely made the party a success.

My other great entertainment choice was hiring an amazingly talented balloon artist and face painter duo. Don from Don’s Twisted Balloons came by referral and I’ve got to admit that he is one of the most talented balloon artists I have ever seen. He does the most creative and difficult balloons and the kid’s loved them! What I also love about Don is that he comes with a big board of balloon options, which makes it easy for the kid’s to pick and choose there favorite. I am happy to report that all kids got at least one balloon and it was a complete hit at the party. Don’s partner, Erin from is an excellent face painter and also did some fabulous artwork on the kid’s and a couple of adults that jumped in line. The kid’s loved the entertainers, mommy got a break for a while, and everyone was happy – I couldn’t of asked for more. I am so happy with my decision to hire the entertainment and would hire these folks again in a heartbeat!

 

After reviewing all these fabulous photos and party details, I’m sure you could confidently guess that we had a BLAST at this Madagascar themed birthday party!! As always, I enjoyed putting every beautiful detail together and LOVED seeing it all come together beautifully in the end! Here are a couple of pictures of the hubby and I with the birthday boy – it’s all worth the smile on his face!

DIY Mommy to BEE Baby Shower

DIY Bumble Bee Baby Shower

Baby showers are such a joyous occasion! The mother-to-be is pampered, showered with gifts, and surrounded by loved ones celebrating the highly anticipated arrival of a precious bundle of joy. Today’s featured DIY baby shower is so adorable, full of lovely DIY projects, and definitely the bees knees.

This DIY Bumble Bee baby shower was created with love by Joanna & Lydia for the mommy-to-bee who loves Bumble Bees and simple colors such as white, light gray and yellow. With simplicity, elegance, and a brunch in mind the planning duo found an awesome venue and went to work on creating the bumble bee inspired décor.

The classic, elegant centerpieces were styled with white hydrangeas and adorned with twine holding tiny bees wrapped around the vases. Little white frames held simply decorated table numbers. The favors on the table included mini honey jars and a bee muslin bag held the silverware.

The dessert table was a focal point containing giant letters spelling out BABY were made from foam board and tissue squares glued onto the letters. Adorable hand made poms made from white and yellow tissue paper were decoratively placed throughout the private room. The “It’s a Boy” bunting made from silver letters and different colored papers added to the bumble bee ambiance. Delectable treats like golden Oreos with yellow filling, bumble bee imprinted Oreo cookies with yellow filling, and homemade turtle pretzels with yellow and chocolate details and an edible Bee embellishment filled the dessert table.

The rest of the bumble bee decor included a fun baby shower bingo with a bee embellishment, a framed baby shower announcement, a creative guestbook (Mommy to Bee’s favorite childhood book), and a memorable game called “What should the Name Bee”. where the mommy-to-be selected her favorite name and the guest who wrote the name received a Burt’s Bee’s gift set as a prize.

DIY Baby Shower Candy Buffet

DIY Baby Shower Candy Buffet

Oh sweet baby! This past weekend I put together the most vibrant and gorgeous candy buffet table for a baby shower. Filled with DIY projects, this creative candy buffet was a hit with the guests! I loved the final product so much that I couldn’t wait to share it with you. I hope that it provides you inspiration for your next baby shower or candy buffet.

The inspiration for this candy buffet came from this adorable Pink Safari baby shower invitation from Party City.

babyshower invitation

I loved the invitation because it shyed away from the ordinary by encompassing a fuchsia, pastel pink, white, and black color palette plus 2 different patterns – zebra print and leopard spots. I knew this was going to be a fun challenge for me to combine these various components together cohesively in a beautiful candy buffet.

First I searched around for appropriate “candy jars” and decided to go with a variety of different shapes, heights, widths, and sizes. I purchased vases from Walmart, Dollar Tree, and Michaels since I found them to be the best retail options. (I also purchased some from a wholesaler I have membership to called Shinoda’s.) DIY alert: To add additional height to 2 of the cylinder vases, I simply purchased a glass candlestick holder from the Dollar Tree and glued it to the base of the vase. For added accents, I bought various ribbons matching the theme colors and patterns and hot glued them to the vases. (The best way to do this is to tape one end of the ribbon to the vase, wrap it around and then hot glue the other end of the ribbon to the overlapping ribbon base. This way you can always pull off the ribbon and reuse the vase for a future event.)

Note: remember when you are looking for vases for a candy buffet you don’t want to get anything with a skinny neck that would make using tongs or a scooper difficult for your guests to grab the candy. 

Next, being a big DIY fan as you know, I decided to make a tissue paper tassel garland and make the banner, instead of purchasing one. Thanks to HGTV’s DIY instructions I was able to pull off a beautiful complimentary tissue paper garland tassel for the candy buffet table. It is really easy to make, cost effective, and a gorgeous decoration addition to any event or themed table. I am sure this won’t be the last one you see from me. :)

 tissue paper tassel garland

For the banner I came up with a creatively cute idea, instead of the typical “It’s a Girl” or “Baby Shower”, I came up with “Oh Sweet Baby”, which I thought was the perfect word play to tie together the event and the candy buffet. I made the letters on my computer, cut them, and then adhered them to patterned scrapbooking paper. Then I punched holes in the top and strung ribbon through each letter. It came out beautifully and was a perfect addition to the backdrop for the candy buffet table. Lastly, adding a few paper pin wheels from Party City along with the banner made for an amazing backdrop.

A huge plus for this gorgeous candy buffet were the fitted white rectangular linen and the fuchsia table runner from Linen Tablecloth. The quality of the linen was amazing and elegant plus it just looked so much better than a paper or plastic tablecloth would have. The satin table runner had the perfect brilliant fuchsia color making everything on the table pop! At only $2.39 it is a steal of a deal! I really do recommend purchasing linens from Linen Tablecloth because they are really affordable (usually cheaper than renting) and they provide quality linen that you can re-use over and over again. If you don’t believe my raves then head over to their site www.linentablecloth.com – read the reviews and try for yourself!

Last but not least, in addition to the candy I added elements like fuchsia boa’s from the Dollar Tree, extra tissue paper tassels, a picture frame, small vase with carnations, candy scoopers, and matching favor bags from Party City with Thank You stickers. Take a look at how it all came together beautifully! (Make sure you check out my tips for pulling off a beautiful candy buffet table below.)

For my first candy buffet table I was really blown away with the results once I was able to visually see everything blend together beautifully. I encourage you, especially my DIY readers, to do a candy or dessert buffet and share the photos with me, I’d love to see your creation and I’m always looking for beautiful content and DIY projects to share on the blog! Please contact me if you have something you think would be perfect to share on 3D-Memoirs!

Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment below! I’d also love it if you could be so kind as to PIN the photos on Pinterest and/or share the post on FB or Twitter! Also, if you didn’t know 3D-Memoirs is now on INSTAGRAM! Follow me @3DMemoirs for lovely wedding inspiration, party ideas, and more DIY projects! I look forward to connecting with you soon!

Here are a couple of tips for a successful candy buffet table:

  • Add height and depth by utilizing various vases/jars, staggering on the table, and/or adding decorative boxes or crates for some of the vases to sit on
  • Make sure you buy enough candy to fill the vases/jars at least 3/4 of the way
  • Add fillers to the table that matches the theme of your occasion (i.e. crystals, toys, flowers, feathers, etc) 
  • If you have a 6 ft table you’ll probably need 12-15 vases/jars for it to look full and complete
  • If you can get candy that fits your color palette it always looks awesome but it is not a requirement
  • Don’t forget the scoopers, tongs, or favor bags for your guests 
  • If it is going to be outside and it’s a hot day, it is best to avoid having chocolate
  • Use a table runner, garland, backdrop, banner, tags, or decorate the vases to add beautiful touches to your table

DIY Country Bridal Shower

Country Bridal Shower

You must be wondering “how did you come up with the creative idea of an elegant-styled country bridal shower?” Well as you know by now, I have a hankering for DIY projects and event decor, so I was super excited when I received this lovely linen from Linen Tablecloth and was told I could have my way with it!

Linen Tablecloth

Linen Tablecloth’s – Spring Harvest Tablecloth

I loved the pattern and lace trim of this quality linen, which definitely had an orchard or barn-like country flair, so I decided to create an elegant country bridal shower DIY tablescape using this lovely patterned linen as the base and as inspiration for the decor. My goal was to develop a unique tablescape that could be utilized in both indoor and outdoor settings with a down-home country and elegant rustic feel to it. In order to compliment the gorgeous linen, I went with a navy blue and white color palette infused with gold accents (chargers, candlestick holders, glitter, paint, ribbon and sequins) and tan elements (wood, burlap, and twine). What’s amazing about this elegant country theme is that it would be perfect for a Spring, Summer, or Fall bridal shower, wedding, or baby shower (changing a few elements)! In the end it all came together beautifully, just as I had pictured in my head, and Natalie Henderson did an amazing job capturing all of the minute lovely details that went into this DIY Country Bridal Shower! (Click on the photos below to see the full-sized picture.)

DIY Friday: Spring Dinner Party

DIY Spring Soiree – Dinner Party

Want to have a Spring soiree with a few of your close friends perhaps in the comfort of your home or undeneath the beautiful stars? Today I am sharing a few DIY projects and tips for an intimate springtime evening dinner party! For this post I am going for grown and sexy, simple yet elegant!

1. Dinner Guestlist

Decide on your guest count and put together your invitee list.

2.DIY Invitations

Decide on the dinner party details – location, date, time, and theme, if any. Then find a creative way to share the deets about your event – here are a few examples:

Be “old-fashioned” and personally handwrite invitations to each of your guests on lovely paper like this from the Paper Source:

4661007710

 

Or you can use some creative fonts that fit your theme and simply print your invitation on lovely paper!

Another inexpesive option that I am a HUGE fan of is buy a lovely personalized printable DIY invitation (jpg) from an Etsy vendor like this one from Trinity St. Studio:

invitation

3. DIY Decor

Decide on the ambiance and your decor for your dinner party. (In the DIY examples below I am going for a romantic spring-like ambiance.) Take a look at these inexpensive DIY projects for decor:

Save your wine or beer bottles and buy candlesticks from the Dollar Tree. DIY instructions from Happy Mundane here:

Candlelight centerpiece

DIY Flowers & Candlelights Centerpiece : DIY Instructions from My New Place here:

flower-centerpieces

If you wanted to add a little bit of color, then try something like this wear you either buy color vases or paint your own and add flowers and succulents as shared on Little Miss Momma:

colored vases

For decor you can buy elegant premium plastic dinner ware products from Party City or from the Dollar Tree:

dinner platesdinner plates

Buy affordable beautiful table covers from Party City or elegant linens from Linen Tablecloth! Buy or make your own table runners to add some pizzaz or use your favorite scrapbooking paper as a place mat for each dinner set.

 

4. Personalized Favors

Do something simple or even something grand, this isnt required but a special touch. You can offer something edible or useable that you make. Here is a lovely creative idea I found on HGTV – infused sugars (you can find these containers at Michaels and choose to personalize them with your guests name):

Original_Eden-Passante-Sugar-and-Charm-infused-sugar-lime-lavender-lemon-party-favors-beauty-2_s4x3_lg

 

Or how about a beautiful personalized “green” gift like this one featured on Design Sponge:

terrarium1

 

 

5. DIY Food and Drinks

Food – go for a food bar like taco bar, sandwhich bar, burger bar, baked potato bar, chili bar, grilled cheese bar, etc. You just want to pick something that is cost effective for the quantity of guests but is also fulfilling and offers a lot variety – this is the fun part for your guests, to actually pick their toppings! Here is an example of a baked potato bar shared on Lucy Dylan Weddings:

potato bar

Dessert – since you are going with the food bar, you can also add a dessert bar with a myriad of desserts or focused on one particular item – cheesecake bar, ice cream bar, fruit bar, fondue bar, cookies bar, cupcake bar, etc. If you want to keep the dessert simple – make your favorite dessert – cake, cookies, pie, brownies, etc or if you aren’t a great chef opt for some awesome bakery or store bought desserts and put them on lovely plates for your guests to choose!

Drinks – if you are in the mood for libations, share your favorite wine, beer, or make a creative signature drink for your guests! Or you can go bar crazy and go with a drink bar – i.e. a Margarita, Mimosa, or Mojito bar.  If you and your guests do not drink, make a yummy and refreshing drink to share, such as this Pomegranate Spritzer shared on White on Rice Couple:

drink
