Spring Themed Birthday Invitations

April Showers Brought MAY 4 Flowers!
Sheek Shindigs is planning a spring-themed birthday party for a client's daughter later this May. Our client wants the party to be centered around flowers, hence the inspiration for the invitations. The birthday girl's name is MAY...could it get any more spring-like? Here is a peak at the handmade invitations.

Turquoise and Orange Rehearsal Dinner

Sheek Shindigs desinged the decorations for a beach rehearsal dinner this past weekend. The color scheme was turquoise and orange. Here are a few pictures...many more will follow.

We hung starfish from curly willow branches to reflect the couples beach destination wedding. The name cards were done in turquoise and orange and we added sand dollars to contiue the beach theme.

The name cards and the menu

The private room after it was decorated.

Shell platters topped with orange pillar candels were the centerpieces on half of the tables. The other half of the tables had orange filled vases with white hydrangea.

We used seashells to make the table name holders for each table

The happy couple!

A special thank you to Holly of HM Designs and Andrew of AKA Fotographix, LLC for allowing me to use their photos for this post.

Polka Dot Love

I LOVE these polka dot balloons! What a fun accessory to add to your next party. They are available in 10 different colors here. The red and black polka dot balloons would be perfect for a little ladybug themed birthday!

Spring Inspired Handprint Keepsake Project

I did this fun project with my children last year. Every time I look at it I think of spring and it makes me happy. Sheek Shindigs is planning a spring/flower themed birthday party for a client in May and this is one of the activities that the children will be doing to take home.

It is really inexpensive and easy to do at home. Purchase a canvas at your local craft store as well as some acrylic paint and some foam brushes. Simply paint your child's hands and let them make a flower by rotating their handprints on the canvas. I used the sides of their hands to make the stems and their feet for the petals. My oldest used his finger tips to add sunflower seeds to his sunflower.

The finished product will add lots of color to the walls of your child's room or playroom as well as leave you with a keepsake for years to come. Enjoy!

"Girly" Circus-Themed Party

I recently found this super cute paper and had to share. I love circus/carnival themed parties but they usually tend to have more masculine colors. This circus paper would be so much fun for a little girl's circus party! So many ideas...any takers?
