So my girl friend's thirtieth birthday was coming up and my friends thought it would be nice to surprise her with a birthday brunch. We were going to try out a new restaurant and everyone was assigned something to take care of such as flowers, dessert, balloons, etc. I was in charge of bringing a sign or banner and some decorations as I tend to be the more craftier one. So with a few days to prepare something, this is what I came up with.
1. Easy chalkboard sign . . . I have this small square chalkboard sign that I bought at Joann's that I use for all types of occasions. I just marked up a cute sign using a chalkboard marker and used some washi tape to add a little more detail and color to the sign. The triangles I cut out of scrapbooking paper using this banner punch I just bought from Amazon.
2. I created this cute banner for the table as I guessed we wouldn't have a large space to hang something. I used the same banner punch and scrapbooking paper with some string. To create the base I bought these cute little pots and used floral styrofoam glued in the bottom and skewers to hang the banner.
3. I of course needed a wrapped gift that was just as crafty as the decor so I wrapped her gift in kraft paper and cut different floral shapes out of cardstock and glued it down. This was pretty quick and surprisingly easy.
4. The last touch . . . I found this cute little party hats at target and had to get them! They added a little playfulness to the table.
Just a few little projects made our brunch fun and beautiful.
