One of my all time favourite things to do.. Is plan & throw parties. It’s definitely my niche!
A few years ago I threw my first housewarming party. It was small & simple.
I used the colors for the party that the kitchen/living room were decorated in…brown & teal.
The flowers, vase, & ribbon are from Hobby Lobby. I put it together to add to the decor and then give as a present to be used in the home. I also framed the pics (which I printed myself) to be used in the home after the party.
I made all the food myself. I mixed up a clear glaze icing & matched the color to the decor.
All the printables I found somewhere online…but this was about 3 years ago so I can’t remember where. I just printed them off myself and made muh lil toothpicks & framed the bigger pics.
The food isn’t the prettiest b/c I totally suck at anything baking…but it tasted good. I’ve since learned to just save time & sanity and buy all the food.
These red velvet cake balls were to die for! Still one of my favs!
In December 2012 I gave muh sista-n-law a housewarming party.
I found this invite at YorkPhoto.com I liked & planned the party around it.
I actually had extra invites left over & cut them to use on the decorations.
If you know me..then you know I’m ALL ABOUT THE PRESENTATION.
I LOVE parties and I love to walk into a room and see the party table hit you in yo face like BAM! I believe it should be the focal point when you first walk in.
The present table is always separate from the cake/ food table.
My sister-n-law actually lives about 5 hours away…so we had the party in East Texas so friends & family could come. I road tripped it (another post) down to her howse & took some pictchas. I made a little DVD & played it on the big screen during the shower so everyone could see her home.
Danny’s aunt made the bouquet & I LOVE IT! It went so perfect with the decor! My fav thing about her is she totally also coordinates everything…right down to the serving trays!
I designed the cake to match the invites and had Brookshires make it.
I bought the plates, frames, & glitter boxes at Hobby Lobby. I also used wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby to create the runner across the cake table.
These are my adorable kids. Yes their clothes match the party decor. Don’t judge me.
I had a lot of plates, cups, forks, & decorations left from my sista-n-law’s shower so I decided to use them & go with the same theme/ colors.
I actually used some of the ideas from the printables from the first housewarming party…and designed my own to match this party.
I didn’t get a close up of the sayings on the wall…but they are the same as the pictures I framed in the first party in this post. You can get your totally free copy by clicking on the pic..
I also made new little toothpick thingys with the same designs.. You can print that here...
And here is the large Home Sweet Home…You’re welcome.
