Aside from Hallmark movies and a fabulous excuse to go shopping, one of my favorite things about the holidays are the parties! (shocking, I know LOL). Gingerbread decorating parties are such a fun event to host for kids (and grownups!) and I think it makes a great annual tradition….
I’ve been seeing these party crackers pop up everywhere lately, and my mind naturally went to wondering how I could make our own to fill with whatever I wanted. It ended up being a pretty easy craft that was a lot of fun! ….
This DIY stemmed from me wanting super cute wooden forks to match our party, but not wanting to spend $$$ on just a small set (so I guess this DIY was born out of my cheapness?? LOL). Since the ones I were looking at were simply painted on the edge, I knew I could easily replicate it as well as come up with a few other ways to jazz up your own….
This was such a super fun and easy DIY. I originally wanted to make them because I was having a hard time finding inexpensive trees in the colors I wanted for a party we were staging, but ended up loving how they turned out so much that I painted some in each of our branding colors! You could easily paint them in neon colors, muted colors, pastel, etc. You can literally paint them in any color to match anything you want - all for super cheap! …..
I’m so excited to finally share this darling Wild One bear party we threw. This theme is such a sweet way to celebrate an adventurous “wild” one, don’t you think? It’s got a fun camping vibe which I think is just perfect for Fall birthdays snuggled around campfires….
