Dance Party - Handmade Theme Decorations ( new photos added)

Invitation card - Photo shop
Our little one just turned two and we had a dance theme party for her!  

I was keen to make decorations and invitation card unique and handmade this time. Last year I could only manage to make invitation at home and print them on fancy scrapbook paper and send them by post. 
So this time I am trying to be more creative as my little girl just loves colours and decorations.

Hand painted magic bottles
 So I did some pinning and found some cool projects to do which would be apt for my theme party.

Magic Bottle: I painted the spice jars with some multicoloured glow paint to make my own version of magic bottle. I decided to keep the dots big and colourful to match the theme, once shown on the link above would be good for bit older kids. 

I also filled up these magic glow bottles with some colourful fruit lollies and included a small thank you note.

Pompoms: Recently one can see pompom and bunting being used in very store window decor and lifestyle magazines. So obviously I had to include it in my party as its the hep thing to do! Buying ready made pompom on eBay was proving bit costly ($15 each, which I was then suppose to fan out and make it look round) So decided to do try it on my own, found this helpful tutorial and followed it through to achieve great results. I made 12 pompoms of six different colours.

 Bunting: I had to make cool buntings to go with all the other props. Australia unfortunately doesn't have wide range of variety when it comes to decorations. Up market stores have variety, but it comes with hefty price tag, which I would like to avoid. 
So I searched for free printable designs online and printed them on A4 paper and cut out the triangles of various sizes to make this pretty unique bunting.

 On the party day all the party props just matched well together and made the space look very cheerful and happy. A perfect dance floor for my little girl!

All the guests noticed the colourful decor and little kids even asked for the pompoms to take home for their own rooms... that made all my efforts of preplanned decoration worthwhile!

Let me know what you think about it. If you need any party ideas in future, I am more than happy to help... I am just an email/comment away!
