Little Golf Pro Party – Part 1

My little guy turned two over the summer and we celebrated with an oh-so-cute Golf themed party. He is all boy and loves anything that includes a stick and ball, which made choosing the golf theme fairly easy. We had fun golfing games, snacks & treats and each little caddie even received there very own golf bag. The post was getting fairly large I decided to split it in two parts.  Part one covers the favor and dessert table and part two will focus on the food and games. Enjoy!

Golf Pro Shop

Each “Golf Pro” received his/her own set of golf clubs (thank you Target dollar section for saving the day!), a blue or green visor I purchased at Joann’s, practice golf balls and a water bottle to stay hydrated on the course.

I created the backdrop for the dessert table with a tan table cloth I had and pinned it to the window frame with thumb tacks (my husband wasn’t too happy about that one…opps!) I used 12” white tissue paper balls that I purchased from Devra Party and hung them by grosgrain ribbon.
I wanted to use items on the dessert table that went along with the theme so I racked my brain for some golf terms. The sign over the table was “Caddie’s Sweet Spot” (sweet spot refers to the center point of the face of the club).

There was a “water hazard” ~ blue jell-o jigglers, “wormburners” (which is the term for a ball that skims the grass) ~ chocolate pudding pack topped with crumbled Oreos and gummy worms plus a sand trap of “doughnut hole in one” ~ made with powder sugar doughnuts and crumbled graham crackers for the sand.

Golf Cake Pops, Water Hazzard Jello & Doughnut Hole in One

I also made cake pops that resembled golf balls ~ some like a lollipop and others with a golf flag and the number two for the birthday boy. The kids had a few candy choices and a small bag to fill so they could bring treats home.

Lemonade Party {as featured on Amy Atlas}

Excuse me for one second while I jump up and down {and scream}…AMY ATLAS!   I still can’t believe it!!!!  Just a month ago I told my soon to be sister-in-law to start following her site for some wedding ideas beacuse she has the BEST  dessert table inspiration.  And now, my Sassy little girl’s fourth birthday party is featured, crazy. {Excuse all the explination points too, I can’t controll myself!!}  Okay, now that I have gotten that out of my system, on to the party.

Lemonade Stand Birthday

Like only my mini-me could, my daughter picked the theme out last year ~ the day after her third birthday.  I was waiting for her to say Dora or a Princess Party but I got “Mom, next year I want a Lemomlade Party”.  What? Love it!   I had so much fun creating all the printables and putting together the whole event. The photos turned out gorgeous, thanks to my dear friend, Monica at Andary Studio.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed planning the party for my sassy little girl.

Lemonade Party Dessert Table

I decided to keep things classic, using the brick on our house for the backdrop , clean white linens and white stands for all the goodies.   I made the cake pops with the help of my two kiddies {they were mainly taste testers} and Bakerella’s fabulous book.  And used our local bakery for the cupcakes.

I wanted the table to focus on the Lemonade theme so I did limited amount of treats.  I had found the plastic pink and yellow jugs and glass containers for adding a pop of color.  I had the glass jars from the jam I was planning on canning last year , and the striped straws came from the wonderful girls at the Bakers Confection.

Lemonade Party Dessert Table

Each “Customer” received his/her own box of party goods, filled with lots of back to school supplies, since her party was the week before school started.

Lemonade Party

I purchased the plain white gable boxes at Oriental Trading and embellished them with striped pattern paper and I used the printable food label on sticker paper as a Thank You Tag.

Look at these two best friends, probably my favorite photos from the whole day.

2011 Printable Halloween Collection

I am very excited to share our brand new Printable Halloween Collection.  When I sat down to create this Halloween Party set I wanted to make sure it included all the things you would need to celebrate this spooktaculor holiday. Weather you are having a monstrous Halloween bash or a fun play date, this set has you covered! A big thanks to Monica at Andary Studio , she did an amazing job capturing all the photos.

I backed the Enter {at your own risk} party sign with some black sparkly cardstock and bright purple cutout spider web cardstock paper.

I filled my kids toy storage container with all the party goodies.  These little cubbies are great for kid friendly parties because everything is at there level.

Chocolate Factory Party

I’m going to be playing catch up for the next couple of weeks.  Considering it has been about four months since my last post, I have a lot to fill you in on.  First up is my adorable nieces first birthday party (the Chocolate Factory one I hinted at a while back).

It was so much fun and everything turned out perfect, even the weather.  The only thing I didn’t account for was the fact that it was at a hall, meaning no windows and no beautiful sunshine to captures those photos.  {I should have borrowed a flash}

I created all kinds of goodies for this party and my sister-in-law did an amazing job putting everything together.

Ugly Doll Birthday Party

I am so excited to share this amazing party. About a month ago I was contacted by a friend from high school to create party printables for her son’s first birthday. She decided on an Ugly Doll themed party and together we came up with this. She did an amazing job tying everything together, she even had an Ugly Doll factory where the little ones could go to create their own dolls, adorable!

It all started with a little airplane

Here is a brief bio of how this all started.  I’m Cathy creative artist and owner of Five O’ Five Design+Paperie, my online shop that specializes in printable party decor for any occasion.
I started out way back when in web site design, graduated college with a degree I will probably never use, and worked my way through a career in marketing & advertising. It wasn’t until the birth of my sweet little angel baby that I discovered my true passion for design.
Creating birth announcements and invitations really wasn’t too far off from my day job; in fact the only real difference was the excitement I had every time I received a new order. Business was good and it was the perfect little venture in-between all those late night feedings and early morning wake up calls.
Then baby no.2 came along and I had to close up shop. Between the 20+ hours I put in at my day job, the 150+ hours I put towards my family, there was just no time left for my passion. It was only when I started planning for my sons first birthday party that I found my true labor of love and myself again.
My goal for Five O’ Five Design+Paperie is to offer irresistible designs at affordable pricing. I hope you enjoy my shop as much as I enjoyed designing the items it in.
Here are a few images from my sons party.  Enjoy!
And here is the full airplane collection that I now offer in my Etsy Shop.
