Curious George Party - SNEAK PEEK!

My daughter will be turning two on October 28th and we're celebrating Curious George style! The list of decorations I need to make for this party seems never ending but I'm having fun with it. Here is a little sneak peek of whats to come! These are the Accordion Flowers I've made so far. I love their appeal! Accordion Flowers have always been my favorite of party decorations.

They are very easy to make! All you need is:
  • Sheets of 12x12 designer paper or card stock. (Three 12x12 sheets make one large flower.)
  • Doilies.
  • Center piece. (I chose to make a smaller flower for one, printed out a picture of curious george for another, and used a Happy Birthday sign that I bought from Wal-Mart for the other).
  • Stapler.
  • Hot Glue Gun.
Once you have all your supplies - get to work and have fun! The system for making these beautiful flowers is very simple and you can find plenty of tutorials by a simple google search.

There are so many ways to go about making party invitations. Between my husband and I - we have such a large family that it would be far to costly to have them professionally made/printed. It would also be far to time consuming for me to make them by hand. I always take the alternative route and make them in Photoshop and print them out myself. I am far from being an expert on Photoshop but I think the invitations I make tend to turn out cute enough and they get the job done.
These are the invitations that we just sent out the other day. (I removed our phone numbers and the party's location just in case there are creepers out there).

I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek into the party planning of Curious Charlotte's 2nd birthday!
