Heeelloooo and welcome to my blog, my new readers!!! :)
Yay, here are finally the photos I took of the handmade decor I made for Flo's maritme birthday party. I did not only work on a nautical outfit, but I also wanted our home - especially the kitchen with the party buffet - to look maritime. :) So here's what I made:
I already started planning the details a few weeks beforehand and collected some materials, but since I have a lot of supplies at home, I didn't have to buy a lot. :)
I made this brooch using fabric leftovers and paperboard.
Some tiny food toppers made of striped paper.
Eeeeks, I'm soooo proud of those handmade sailor hats, I made four of them. :) Can't believe how good they have turned out. :D I found the idea online, but I didn't use any tutorial. Instead, I tried out myself how to make them. :)
Lots of handmade cake toppers: you just need to clue the piece of paperboard onto a wooden stick, I used a hot-glue gun for it. For the blue toppers, I made an anchor stamp myself. :)
I used my circle cutter to make tiny garlands...
And I made pretty pinwheels out of striped paperboard and buttons, using the same technique as in my felt pinwheel tutorial. :)
Two handmade hair bows for the ladies... :)
And of course, not to miss my handmade maritime fabric bunting I sewed a few days before the party. :) No party food table is complete without a bunting! :)
I also made those paper wall decor elements (don't know how they are called) and Anja was so sweet to design maritime, striped paper for us and made this super amazing paper ship garland after an idea we found on Pinterest. <3
Of course I also made pom poms do decorate the walls. :)
Aaaand, finally, the wall decor above the food table of which I'm gonna share photos in a few days... :)
Thanks for reading &have a fantastic week! :)
While you are reading this post, I'll probably be totally freaking out and tidying up my home, because this evening, my lovely blogger pals Stef & Stefanie are arriving to spend the week with me! <3
