"P" is for Party #2

Pink Barbie party roundup:

Ruffled plastic pink tablecloth:

1. Purchase tablecover roll of plastic:

2. Fold over top edge just enough so bottom edge skims floor:

3. Gather folded edges and tape to table edge:

Easy and inexpensive:

Hang tablecloth cover to create draping:

1. Use small Command hooks at corners:

2. Gather plastic tablecloth and wrap with twist tie:

3. Hook twist tie loop onto Command hook:

4. Add tulle to completely cover the Command hook:

I made a temporary TV cover up birthday sign, see the how to here.

I sewed Barbie silhouette pouches as favors:

with pink polka dot lining

One for each cousin.

The Barbie silhouette idea came from the cupcake toppers:

I ordered the toppers from here.
And forgot to get a good picture until half the cupcakes were gone!

For the school party I made cake pops, see how to here:

She was most excited about getting Barbie out of the cake:

And she's wearing the party dress I made here:

Thank goodness I have a few months until the next birthday, it's exhausting!

  24. Love the table cloth idea, and the barbie pouches are a great idea for favors!!

  25. The table skirting idea is the best! I'm going to do that for my craft shows from now on. I use a cloth tablecloth for shows and I think I even have a roll of the white table covering. Your whole party looked awesome, I just don't have little kids anymore and grandkids are kind of far off at this point, lol. But I do plan to use the table skirt idea, thanks for an awesome tutorial!

  26. I am featuring these ideas on my blog post (linked back to this blog post):
