Aloha {Goodbye} Summer Birthday Party


Saying goodbye to summer is always so hard for me. I'm such a sunshine and sand kind of girl. Sigh. Today's winning party feature is perfect...an ALOHA SUMMER {GOODBYE SUMMER} BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Anna & Blue Paperie! Such a gorgeous party! Stefanie did an amazing job. LOVE the creative wreath made out of drink umbrellas. And take a look at the handcrafted hibiscus flowers on the CAKE by DK Designs!


Stefanie said- "I incorporated warm and inviting colors of yellow, orange and fuchsia. A color palette that cheers for celebration! My goal was to create a look that could be recreated for children and adults and one that could be used for any occasion or event. Hibiscus flowers in the party’s color scheme were used throughout the party printables including cupcake toppers, dessert labels, kids table décor and party favors. 

The dessert table consisted of cupcakes with fondant toppers from Two Sugar Babies & Aloha themed cookies from Cookies Are My Canvas. The centerpiece for the table was a cake adorned with eco-chic hand crafted hibiscus flowers by DK Designs. My sweet hubby helped me make the colorful layered cake. His engineering skills came in handy! A happy and colorful bed linen print with bright swirls of flowers and paisley from Pottery Barn Teen was used as the backdrop for the dessert table. The dessert table was adorned with large paper flowers that were added to the backdrop. I made a table skirt using raffia hula skirts and I added a garland in matching party colors using leis from Party City. Celebration candles, candy cups and stripy straws were purchased from Sweet Lulu.

The birthday girls wore adorable custom rosette tanks created by Modern Frills and had matching flower hair accessories made by Looking 4 Lilly.
The guests were greeted at the door and welcomed with leis and hula skirts. Using inspiration from Kim at The Tomkat Studio’s Fairy Party tutu centerpiece, I made hair clips from a flower bouquet I purchased at a dollar store. The flower clips were added to tree branches I found from our yard which made the perfect centerpiece for our family room. Girls chose their favorite flower clip to go along with their aloha accessories. Activities for the party consisted of coloring hibiscus flowers and beach themed coloring pages, a paper leis craft station, hula lessons and a tiki piñata."

Am I the only person bothered by the fact the often people's full addresses, phone numbers and/or email addresses or posted here? Just by reading the full post along with the pictures I know the girl's full names, address, and ages. I find this highly disturbing.
