Featured Parties: Zelda Birthday

When Mayra first asked us if we could design a set of printable decor for her son’s Zelda Birthday party theme, we high-fived. (Just picture that, it was way nerdy.)

To say we were excited was an understatement, we love to work with something nostalgic from our childhood.

Featured Parties: Lachlan's Vintage Circus Carnival Birthday

Good morning everyone!

Quite often we send out a set of printable birthday party decor to a customer, customized and read y to go for their special event, but we never hear back on how it went. We would love to receive photos and information regarding the products we sell. We want to be sure that everything has worked out well and that you are satisfied!

The party we are about to show you is from our Vintage Circus Carnival collection. This was our very first printable set up in the Etsy shop and was very popular last year. We even used it for our own son’s 2nd birthday party! (click here to see it) 

This party however, was for a special little man named Lachlan. His mother Elesha contacted us about the printables on Etsy, very excited to make it a grand affair and fun for all ages. We think it turned our spectacular and are sure the kids had an amazing time!

Here are all the party details as told by Lachlans’s mom, Elesha!

  • The circus peanuts, cherry sours and candy buttons were from oldtimecandy.com
  • The popcorn stripey bags, clear cotton candy bags and tissue paper were from Hobby Lobby.
  • Party Favors, game prizes, ducks, clown noses and wig, and big swirly lollipops were from orientaltrading .com
  • The crazy straws, game prizes, lions and tigers, and sunglasses were from the Dollar Tree
  • The popcorn boxes were from amazon.com
  • The red stripey straws were from Sophiesbigday@etsy.com
  • Lachlan’s Elephant Shirt was from CottonLaundry@etsy.com
  • Lachlan’s Clown Shirt was from Vintagelucy’s@etsy.com
  • We made the coloring books.
  • Party Favors and the crayons came from Target.
  • I made the balloon wreath and covered the “5” with glitter, the 5 came from Hobby Lobby.
  • I made Lachlan’s shirt.

 If you are interested in purchasing this printable decor for your Vintage Circus or Vintage Carnival party we would love for you to visit our shop right here! And be sure to come back and show us some pictures!

Sweet Parties: Julie's Star Wars Birthday

Han Solo in Carbonite “Jello” featuring our Star Wars food tag design.

A couple of weeks ago we sponsored a giveaway where we gave our readers the option to enter for a chance to win any party we currently sell in our Etsy shop! Julie was one of our lucky winners and she chose our most popular party to date: Star Wars. We customized the set of printables with her party details and menu and sent them on their way.

Now usually, we don’t ever hear back after this point. We are kind of used to this, no news is good news or so they say…but Julie was kind enough to let us know that her party was a huge success and even wrote a post on her own blog about it. We love hearing back from our customers and contest winners!

We wanted to share with you some of Julie’s own party photos and what she had to say about how everything worked out for her son Ethan’s birthday!

From Julie’s blog:

Star Wars Birthday Party

It was rowdy and tons of fun.  Don’t ever underestimate the power of a light saber in the hands of my girls.  They are a force to be reckoned with and I don’t think any of the boys were prepared for their wrath and skill level.  I was incredibly lucky to win a complete party printable set from Hello My Sweet.  If it wasn’t for Ethan having a Star Wars theme I would have chosen some really chic party and heck had a party for myself with one of their other amazing products like this Pink Vintage Parisian Romance or this Woodland Acorn Party, sigh.  But their Star Wars printable set was so much fun and it really made the party!

I got a ton of ideas from Just Jenn Recipes.  Seriously her Ultimate Star Wars Party was Jedi-tastic, really true genius!  Her recipes look delicious as well.  Girl can cook!

I had nothing planned as far as games or activities.  I simply set them loose with homemade light sabers until it was time for Han Burgers, Smores Troopers (smore style cupcakes, yum!) and Yoda Soda.  The biggest hit was the Thermal Detonators aka Whoppers.  They had so much fun eating them before they were deactivated and blowing themselves up. Boys will be boys.
