I've been busy as a bee these days creating some new designs for my shop, and today I'm so happy to reveal the photos from the new TRANSPORTATION PARTY SET.
Brittany from Grey Grey Designs contacted me to collaborate on a PLANES, TRAINS and AUTOMOBILES party for a sweet 2 year old boy who loves trains. Drawing inspiration from the "Ready, Set, Go!" fabric from Robert Kaufman, I got to work creating a printables set perfect for all those little boys who love things that GO!
I was thrilled to see the photos from the party and hear more from Brittany on her creative details.
Starting at the front door, Brittany gave the guests a sneak peek of the fun inside with an adorable door sign made with the TRANSPORTATION PRINTABLES and some orange craft foam.
For the party table, Brittany explains, "I wanted the backdrop to be a literal sky. So, using a blue sky fabric from Hobby Lobby, I added some clouds made from cardboard and pillow batting--a super easy project for very little money.
And, I strung the banner from the back of the airplane to suggest the airplanes that fly messages through the sky."
My favorite creative idea of Brittany's the ADORABLE cupcake stand she made from hatboxes and small cardboard/chipboard pieces. She used spray paint for some of the pieces and the coordinating papers from the printables collection to add pops of color and pattern.
And can you even believe how CUTE those fondant cupcake toppers are? Brittany from Edible Details is the genius behind these amazing little creations!
Did you notice how they perfectly match the party printable designs? Genius! Brittany is my first email when I'm collaborating on a party project. If she's on board, you KNOW it's going to be a great party!
Brett's mom, Jennifer, and Brittany worked together to come up with fun names for all the foods.... "Car Tires" for chocolate covered donuts, bagels were "Steering Wheels," "Stoplight Skewer" fruit kabobs, "Antifreeze" for a green drink, and "Cloud Dip" which was marshmallow fluff and graham crackers.
I love how Brittany used the road signs from the printables collection throughout the party space to carry the theme. She simply hot glued the signs to dowels painted black and then inserted them into foam covered in grass-print scrapbook paper. She also used artificial grass from Hobby Lobby for a fun embellishment.
FABULOUS JOB, Brittany! Thank you so much for sharing all of your inspirational ideas and fun party photos with us!
