Grass Skirt Tutorial and a Luau Birthday

Princess C wanted a Luau Birthday Party. How fun!!!

One 99 cent package of tissue makes one skirt.
Sew ribbon across all layers at the top.
Cut your thin strips and...
viola!! : )






THESE TISSUE FLOWERS WERE ALL CUT WITH A SIMPLE PAPER PUNCH FOR THE CRAFT STORE.


Let's go fishing! The "CATCH"......each fish had instructions for something goofy to do in front of everyone!!! It was a big hit! :-D
The Limbo!!!
Mood music!

Happy Birthday, Angel-girl!!! We love you very much!
And...I had to throw in my latest Halloween creations!





Fall is just around the corner. Yippee!!

The party looked like a smashing success...fun for all. I can't believe how big the girls are getting and prettier all the time. Kids parties are so much fun to plan and decorate for.
Your new Halloween items are stinkin' cute! The birds with the hats are terrific....I think I'll make the one I already have a Halloween hat. I'm sure you're looking forward to some cooler temps...I just hate the shorter days.
Have a fun week!

The luau looks amazing...and the birthday girl looks so happy and that is the MOST important element to any party. I love the fishing game...that would be fun for adults too.
ONLY you could make Halloween NOT scary.

That party is adorable looking! Would you be my Grandma? It doesn't matter if I'm a few months older than you, does it? Age is, after all, just a number.

Great party! My littlest grand-daughter is celebrating her FIRST birthday next week to the same theme, a Luau party! I need a costume, maybe I'll try you grass skirt. Blessings, Heidi

My 10 year old would be way jealous of that party. I just LOVE your halloween decorations. I think Halloween is my favorite holiday. Those pumpkins are super cute, I really love the fabric that you used.
