Yep, I’ve been MIA for the last month. And it was nice. We had 4 close family member birthdays, Easter, several dinner parties (1 that I hosted), teaching preschool for a week, and a birthday party. It’s been a bit hectic. My little princes had a birthday, and wanted to do a Barbie butterfly popstar party, with purple, pink, and sparkly for the colors. Plus, she’s been really wanting a wedding dress for her and her Barbies. So, I’ve had a few projects in the works.
This dress is still a work in progress, but you can see her Barbie had a pretty dress too. I’ll figure out what to do and show you later.
Barbie even has a bouquet she can hold. Don’t worry, Ken is barefoot. I think he came with flip flops that have since been lost?
To prep for the party, I used a Cricut, with a brand new blade, to cut out bunches of purple & pink butterflies, and yellow stars. The dang thing ruined half of them! Argh, I get so frustrated with those machines! I hung those all up with fishing line and sticky tack on the ceiling.
We made flower balloons to hang up, but used push pins to get those to stay in the ceiling.
I used streamers from the dollar store, and cut out some big stars and spray painted them with metallic paint for the other wall.
We bought dollar store fairy wings for all the girls, and the 2 boy cousins got SWAT helmets. Tricky planning with boys!
For party games, I printed a Barbie butterfly picture at Staples, and had them do an engineering print. I only did 18”x24”. Then we colored it.
I picked up some jewel stickers and some foam butterfly stickers while waiting for it to print at Staples, and they were blindfolded and had to stick a jewel on the wings.
We decorated these cardboard butterflies I got at Michaels, and some microphones. If there were more reading kids, we would’ve done some Karaoke.
My cute husband was the star. He painted all the kiddos faces when they came in. Butterflies and Star Wars (for the boys).
He also made the Barbie butterfly cake. Let’s pretend I have a nice pretty tray for it, mkay?
All in all, she had lots of fun! She got even more Barbies too. Maybe I’ll post more now? We’ll see….
