Last night I had a wonderful exchange of comments with one of the mommies here in HMP and I was reminded once more of why I started this in the first place: to inspire mommies (or any party enthusiast) to create beautiful memories for their families and to be a venue where we can all appreciate their #laboroflove. Let's always try to be an inspiration in whatever we do! 😊 #homemadeparties #hmptips #inspired #hmpmusings
Back when Homemade Parties was just a few months old, I posted this after a series of comments with one of our HMP mommies.
Fast-forward to today, with Homemade Parties two months shy from its first birthday, I still enjoy exchanging comments with my fellow DIY party enthusiasts. I love seeing all your party shares and getting to know a little bit of you guys through the squares in Instagram. Everytime I see a “thank you” or a “wow, you made my day!” comment on a labor of love I just featured, believe me, I get all giddy too! Thank you for always helping me cross out my make-someone-happy-today task in my to-do list. So continue to share some inspiration and keep on tagging @homemadeparties so we can spread the DIY party love! Now it’s time to revisit last month’s favourite party shares!
1. @edsther’s Paper Flowers: Peonies, gardenias, poppies, roses…name it and birthday girl Lia has it in her (paper) garden! We’re used to featuring DIY party mommas, but this time around, happy to be featuring a creative daddy! Hooray for DIY dads too!
4. @moonyeyed’s Shapes Party: You can’t look at this homemade party and not be hit with nostalgia! I think its safe to say we all had a shapes sorter as a toy when we were babies. Love the theme mommy chose here!
5. @kharlkaren’s Sunshine Party: Definitely a cheery party, perfect for brightening any day! We recently featured a series of You Are my Sunshine parties so head to our Instagram and Facebook pages for more inspiration!
This final one technically can’t be part of the list because it wasn’t a party submission but it was such a crowd favourite, it deserved a special spot in our round-up post. Wish I could bring these beauties to the Philippines! (Photo c/o @handmadefesta)
