Eloise at the Plaza Birthday

December 1, 2010 at 9:07 pm 4 comments

We recently celebrated Piper Ann’s 6th birthday and we decided on an Eloise at the Plaza theme for her party.
The entire party was pink and black and each girl also wore pink and black.

Here is the table where each girl “checked in”

We got these great “Oops” keys from Lowes for FREE! The keychains came from the dollar store. The circles are from the wooden trinket aisle at Hobby Lobby that I spray painted pink and used black vinyl letters for room numbers.

Each girl also got a “suitcase” to hold their goodies.

I took see through shoe box containers from the dollar store and poked two holes in the lid. Then, I threaded pink and black ribbon through the holes and tied them on the underside of the lids to create a handle. I stuffed them with pink tissue paper.

Pink and Black paper banner. Here’s a tutorial.

To completely go overboard my mom decided to make a Black Apple doll in each of the girls likeness. They LOVED them. In addition the “suitcases” doubled as doll beds.

We got these cute glasses from the dollar store and wrapped black and white pipe cleaners around the handles as well as pink curling ribbon. They got to take those home as well.

The table was decorated in various pink candies in glass vessels.

A tier of pink treats. Strawberry fig bars, Strawberry wafer cookies, and pink frosted animal cookies.

Petit fours instead of cake.

There was a little nutrition… Peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwiches cut into heart shapes, strawberries, and Sun Chips. (sunny chips according to P.A.)

I appliqued a zebra print 6 on a pink shirt for Piper Ann and then made her a pink and black tutu to wear over leggings.

Here we are decked out in our pink and black. (My mom was there too and a huge help, but she didn’t want any pictures taken.)

Here she is waiting to greet her guests donning her pink boa.

    Amazing – creativity, skills, and frugality. I love all of it.
