Happy Day!

I felt like ending out the week on a colorful note, especially because the north east is expecting snow tomorrow {no that's not a joke}. This shoot is of a birthday party concept, inspired by the the outfit above. I love all the simple details, I also love that this entire look can be achieved on a tight budget.
1. Bake your own cake - this one looks very manageable
2. They sell very similar paper globes at Target
3. Hand write your invite on simple card stock, just purchase the envelopes and liners from a shop like this.
4. The textural tissue paper back drop adds the perfect amount of texture and color to this table.
5. This gingham fabric could easily be found from a local fabric store such as "Joanns". A few quick stitches and voila, a table cloth, you could even tape the edges if you don't have a sewing machine.

6. This concept could work for a number of spring gatherings..not just a birthday party.

Happy Friday!
