yellow birthday party

When I asked what kind of birthday she wanted, my daughter answered, "yellow".
Well... I think I got that covered. Here are the photos from her party yesterday.
I sewed her dress from the same pattern I used for her Easter dress. I just changed the hem and sleeves to my liking and made a rosette broach. The tablecloth is the leftover fabric from her dress. The button and lemon were for the two games my daughter requested; button button who's got the button , and hot potato, with a lemon instead of a potato. I baked the cupcakes and made lemonade for refreshments. The party favor boxes were from the wedding section at the dollar store, I just added the name tag dots and mini clothes pins. I got the paper lanterns for a dollar each at Michael's. I got the balloons and giant punch balloon at the dollar store. Lastly, the flower wands barely pictured next to the lemonade were favors that I made as well. The flowers come off and become hair clips. Can you tell I had a lot of fun with this party? :)

Alright, here's how it's gonna be. I hereby ban all Allreds from throwing children's birthday parties or any party for that matter. Seriously, you put all the rest of us to shame.
It looks beautiful. Great job!

This is so adorable! Where did you find the container that you put the lemonade in? How much liquid does it hold? I've been looking for one just like that but can only find 2 gallon ones and I want something bigger.
Thanks and again love the yellow and simplicity of this set up. :)

Found you from following a link on Snippet and Ink. This party setup is WONDERFUL! Thanks for sharing! I'm working with a new non-profit to plan a Pink Party for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (http://www.pinkisntalwayspretty.org) in early Oct and they don't have a lot of money for decor but need a lot of impact. We're basically going with two shades of pink, black and white. The party is in a large performng arts recreation center so I'm hoping the focused color scheme will have as much impact as yours. Thanks for the inspiration!
