I’ve been feeling under the weather lately but I’m happily typing away on my laptop, thinking of all the things we’ve got planned for when Homemade Parties turns a year old in October! We’ve got a lot in the works but before I prematurely spill what we have in-store for you, let me segue to the many things we’re happy about from last month. First, we’ve now reached 3,000 followers in Instagram! Thank you for following my passion project! Second, we finally launched our online party supplies directory! I hope to curate the best suppliers for you, so that party planning becomes a breeze. You can check it out here. Lastly, we once again had a lot of eye-catching DIY party features; and the top five favourites we have below are just some of the best ones we have on the HMP feed. Visit @homemadeparties for more inspiration!
1. @momwithacam’s pretty pastel backdrop: What else can we say about this awemazing backdrop? Yup, you read it right, awemazing. This labor of love is so pretty it deserves its own adjective. We are in awe at mommy’s amazing DIY skills.
3. @cassieandco’s dessert bar: We all loved Mommy Micah’s spread for Cassie’s first birthday, and I’m sure you loved that wooden name just as much! What a perfect way to personalize your dessert bars. You can check out Cassie and Co.’s contact details here.
4. @dee_madin’s Sesame Street party: One of the Sesame Street parties we received that inspired me to come up with a Sesame Street themed week! Check out the printables we gathered for you here.
5. @littlemisshelper’s shabby chic party: I was thinking of what to write about this, but decided to share what mommy said instead. It pretty much summarises what every DIY mom feels!
Early morning thoughts from our #diymom, @littlemisshelper: ・・・ "I've been busy the past few days because of this. The backdrop took so much of my time. The littlest details, from her headband to the bunting, the burlap and the chalk paint, to the paper mache painting, sweets and their labels… The list goes on. Sometimes, I would look back and think if all the time and effort is worth it. At the back of my mind, "ito na yun? Isang table lang lahat yun? 😂" But at the end of the day, the answer to my question is always the same… Yes, it's worth it. As they say, the best gift you can give your loved ones is time… Oh time, I've given so much to do all these little things 😂 Anything and everything for our precious daughters." #DIYparty #shabbychicparty #rusticshabbychic #hoorayhoorayforsabinasbirthday
