So I'm simultaneously making decorations for both parties in addition to studying in my last year of design school... It's going to be a busy fall.
Back in August, I had gone down to the States to hit up Target and Joann's for some party supplies and I wanted to share them with you!
The theme for his birthday is: Little Man Mustache Bash! I'm trying to get my sister to buy him a onesie with a bowtie, suspenders and a newspaper boy cap! I also just picked up some hipster glasses for him at the dollar store! =)
We're going to create a photobooth and for the backdrop, I picked up this fabric from Joann's:
Then I was on a hunt for a fun tablecloth. Am I the only one who has problems finding nice (non licensed) tablecloths for parties? I know the dollar store has inexpensive solid coloured tablecloths but I wanted some sort of pattern and preferably better quality than thin cheap plastic.
Target had a small selection of tablecloths (along with a large selection of Disney/Pixar patterns) but they were either too girly or not the right colour scheme.
Then... I walked past the bathroom section and spotted a pattern and colour scheme that would be perfect! So what if it's a shower curtain, right?
The other thing I was on the hunt for were disposable cups with lids for kids. These are surprisingly hard to track down! Target, however saved me as they had these fun little animal cups that come with lids and bendy straws.
When I got home, I cut out a bunch of mustaches:
It wasn't a huge shopping spree but I'd say it was a very successful trip! Especially since I got me some chalupa's at Taco Bell- that's always my favourite part of any road trip to the States! =)
