So, in a previous post I mentioned that I had a celebration coming up. I have been trying my hand at some typical lifestyle blogger party ideas and seeing how they play out. I started by having a colour palette and picked up some items relating to that scheme, they were mainly lime green and various shades of blue.
I bought myself some streamers, paper straws and washi tape. I am going to use the streamers to decorate my gateway, front door and across the garden. I will use the straws as straws… funny that. Finally, I will use the washi tape to decorate the table, jars and cake topping.
I got all my items from ebay as there are no decent party shops near my humble abode.
I got the streamers from jasdeep123′s shop on Ebay, I chose them because of the range of colours and how oh so cheap they are! I definitely recommend them.
The paper straws, I bought from 123khbc’s shop on Ebay, I chose these both because of the amount in a packet (25) and again, the wide range of colours.
I bought the straws in the colours ‘Pale Blue Striped’ and ‘Grey Striped’.
Lastly, the washi tape I bought from two different Ebay stores. I bought the two plain colours (Mid Blue and Lime) from joeandflo’s Ebay store. I chose the third floral print washi tape because I wanted a different texture and pattern, I got this from lavender-hill-lifestyle’s shop on Ebay.
So here’s the decorations I’ve been collecting over the last few weeks for the celebration tomorrow, yes it is tomorrow. (I definitely forgot to mention that.) I hope everything turns out as planned in my head, I will be photographing a lot of it so, WordPress, prepare for a lot of posts this next week.
(Sidenote: Note to self, don’t put paper streamers on a window ledge in direct sunlight. Otherwise this will happen…)
