Wecome! Please excuse my mess while I try and figure out how this shiny new website works! In the mean time here is a flashback Thursday flashing back to Mothers Day for a Kate Spade Dinner Party! Enjoy!
I am a huge Kate Spade fan, and decided that mothers day is a great time to celebrate all things girly. I had a great time crafting all sorts of things for the party, however, I think my favourite craft was the mini balloon letter cake toppers from the photo above.Another super easy, and cheap craft with high impact is the tissue paper tassels that you see pretty much everywhere.
I choose light pink (since that was the table cloth I had on hand.. read: borrowed from my Mom) and added in the bold black and white graphic prints and then tried my hand at the mixed metal trend. I have a few copper things on hand, brass candle sticks and my china has a silver on it. The table runner? wrapping paper from the dollar store! same with the paper on buffet!
I also printed out a few Kate Spade quotes and put them in dollar store frames that I painted silver/copper and gold. They said things like “She leaves a trail of glitter wherever she goes” and added a cute talking point at the table.
Instead of buying two bouquets for the Mom’s, I split up a few little bouquets and put the flowers in my copper mugs that I got for Christmas from my MIL and a few beer bottles that I spray painted silver. Overall it really added to the girly-ness of the table.
But my favorite part…. the bow napkins!
All in all it was a great party with good food and great company! Hope you all had a fantastic mothers day!
