I'm working on fabric garlands using a very old thrifted vintage curtain. I just love this fabric, originally I was going to use it as two separate blinds for our bedroom, but I've taken the plunge & cut into it now...I hope it's worth it!
We're also making birthday preparations for our big 9 year old boy...
garlands, goodie bags & cupcakes still to make..
we're keeping it simple (as requested by the birthday boy, no party games this year thankyou!) taking a small group of 3 friends out for a movie & some timezone madness, before coming back home for a bbq & cake, quite the change from last weeks pink party!

Beautiful, will be worth it no doubt!!ReplyDelete
Yay for easy, my oldest just turned 14, decided to take a bunch of friends to the pool here on base. Super easy for me :)
Happy birthday to your boy!!!!
Sounds like a perfect party---small, simple, and out of your house!ReplyDelete
Sounds like my kinda boy, small and simple, but lovely I'm sure.ReplyDelete
Have fun celebrating him xo
Oh yes, i'm loving that fabric too!ReplyDelete
Thats a hard decision between using or chopping up sometimes!!
Loving the torn brown paper invitations!
Your party items are wonderful...I missed your tuesday post I'm off to look at it!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great party !!!ReplyDelete
And I love the fabric for the graland....can't wait to see the final outcome.
Oh, those garlands are super-sweet. Well done on all that cutting! Love the vintage fabrics they have such a charm of a bygone era:)ReplyDelete
Garland looks great. Can i ask what you use to cut out the fabric? I've been looking for an implement to cut small circles in felt but don't have a lot of faith in the paper cutters.ReplyDelete
Loving the blue/white polka dot theme...I've never seen a polka dot balloon! A very grown up b/d party :-). Sounds like it will be a great day and night.
Loving the retro garlands too and all that lovely lace!
LOVE PEACE enJOY
A great party plan indeed. I think the fabric garland is looking great. How did you cut them all out like that?ReplyDelete
The garlands are looking gorgeous Mel.ReplyDelete
I'm sure the big boy will have a great party, its kind of nice to scale it down a bit as they get older.

Oh I looooooooooooooooove little fabric garlands like that, they are adorable... in fact, everything is looking great!ReplyDelete
Oh yes beautiful fabric. Well done for taking the plunge, I would have thought about it and thought about it then just folded it up back in the cupboard wher it couldn't be enjoyed. Have a fun party!ReplyDelete
I bet they are going to look stunning! Beautiful fabric.ReplyDelete
That fabric was begging to be made into a garland. Love the little floral sneaky peeks here and there ;)ReplyDelete
That fabric garland looks beautiful, what a great idea. I hope the boy enjoys his special birthday party, sounds perfect to me and hopefully not too stressful for you. Enjoy your weekend.ReplyDelete
The flowers look terrific ... I've so far ignored vintage curtains and I really don't need another obsession! LOL Have a great party. It's a lovely age.ReplyDelete
