We held Chloë’s 6th Birthday Party this past weekend, so last week’s agenda consisted of a lot of planning and decorating.
Chloë wanted to have a “Monster High – 13 Wishes” party.
Which – for how much I hear about Monster High – I thought there would be an abundance of decorations to choose from.
Not so much.
I was able to purchase napkins and a table cloth and the rest I had to come up with on my own.
That’s okay – it gives me something to blog about.
First up – Balloon Flowers.
I needed balloon flowers in the traditional Monster High colours of black white and pink.
Now,I trial-and-errored a couple of versions of these balloon flowers;
The larger balloon flowers in the back (the pink and the black) are “Three-lung-fulls”.
This just means I used three full lung-fulls of air to determine a petal size – so that all the petals would be the same.
The centre flowers were 1-lung-full.
The front balloon flowers are “Two-lung-fulls” for the petal size and about a half a lung-full for the centres.
I liked the big ones, but they were a bit harder to get to stay flat.
In fact, I ended up using glue dots to try to get the petals to stay in line.
I hung a few balloon flowers in my foyer:
And mission: Decoration was off!
