My Daughters Birthday Party~Designed Online


 Over the weekend, my little girl turned 12.  This was a monumental birthday for me her...the last number before they end in 'teen.  I wanted her 8~girl slumber party to be extra special.  I was having a busy week with no time for running around to gather supplies.
Luckily, I was able to put together a great party on my laptop in between appointments.









Using the internet, I enlisted the help of Martha Stewart, The TomKat Studio and Stearley Cakes to create a great party design that was budget friendly and easy to put together. 










I started by ordering the cake through an email to a local cake designer.
Kim Stearley of Stearley Cakes created this masterpiece...  








It was a custom design, just for Hannah.    











Hannah's dream is to grow up to be the next Cake Boss.  She is fascinated with Kim's cakes. 
 {Check them out, here, and you'll see why}










All she wanted for her Birthday this year was a cake by Kim.  













Needless to say, she wasn't disappointed.











The next friend I called upon was The TomKat Studio.  I've recently seen their adorable party printables featured in Potterybarn Kids. 













I popped over to her Etsy shop and purchased the Happy Birthday banner and pink labels from her Spa Party Collection.  












The labels were a perfect addition to the table top and the chocolate fountain we were planning on top of the buffet (an unfortunate power outage but the kibosh on the chocolate fountain).











The TomKat Studio printables were so easy.  After using my paypal account to check out the files were sent to my email address ready to print.  It is seriously, the easiest way to plan and decorate for a party.












The last friend I hit up for some advice was Martha.  After reading her easy tutorial for these beautiful tissue pom-poms, my party design was good to go.  











I used a mix of gray, aqua, black and white tissue to create tissue flowers in various sizes.  












Very simple to make and cheaper than balloons. 










I was feeling sappy about Hannah's last year as a "little girl" so I created a shrine on my plate ledges.  I printed out a few of my favorite pics of her throughout the years and taped them to my ironstone plate collection along with a label from The Tom Kat Studio and a black bow. 










I think I may keep it up for a while.   










She's not too happy about it but I love seeing that little baby face.











At the last minute, I threw together some party favor bags.  










My inspiration for the loot bags was the Spa Collection printables.  










I really enjoyed putting this party together.  
I think the reason it was so much fun is because it was so easy.  











Happy Birthday Hannah,  Dad and I love you so much and we are so proud of you.
I hope your Birthday was special, just like you.
