I've been painting..cutting...glueing...designing...etc for the past several weeks to get ready to surprise my sister, Krista, for her 30th bday which is in a few weeks! I decided to go with a New York themed party...and titled it "Upper East Side Chic". She was totally surprised! A huge success! She had friends drive in from Arkansas and Georgia to KC where her party was!! Plus alot of friends and family from KC went! Several out of town friends were trying to make it..but couldn't come..totally understandable!!
Krista's sweet friend, Melodie helped me set up the party while everyone else was at church. And our wonderful new friends Chad and Michelle let us invade their house for the party! A HUGE THANK YOU to all of them!!!!!!!!! :)
Jessica from http://www.penandpaperflowers.blogspot.com/ made the cupcake toppers! I used them on the silverware also! They turned out sooo awesome! THANKS JESSICA! They were perfect! We LOVED them!!!!
I made the New York backdrop (along with my husbands help - he cut it out!!!)...to be her headboard after the party! It will look awesome against her red walls and black and white bedding!!
I made the "fake cake" so I wouldn't have to drive 7 hours with a huge cake on my lap! lol Instead I rode that long with a box of cake pops on my lap! hehehehe The things you do for your sister's party! LOL
