bowling party [a 9th birthday party]

Saturday, April 9, 2011

i am still over the moon with the feature of the bowling party i styled for a very special girl bianca, my goddaughter. christi was so sweet for featuring it over at p is for party and i am so thankful for that!

i am lucky to also be inspired by so many of you out there and i took some of your ideas and incorporated them into this party.  alexis from jac o lyn murphy blog featured a bowling party she coordinated and i was inspired by her perfect gumball and trophy ideas. then, i knew kelly of whhostess and the party dress had a rugby collection with the trophy design and she customized it with the party colors and i used them for our label stickers, party favor toppers and centerpiece sticks. for the venue, i used dotted craft paper as placemats to cover the contemporary stainless steel table to soften the look a bit. i added flowers for a more feminine look and it completed the fun bowling tablescape ideal for a little girl's party!

in addition, click here for the inspiration board i created for this soiree!
