Kalia's dress up party was so much fun! She had a wonderful time and guests loved rummaging through the dress up trunk and taking funny photos in front of the confetti wall backdrop!
I found a beat up steamer trunk and wanted to make it over into a dress up trunk for Kalia- I decided to plan the entire party around it!
Modern and shabby chic mixed together
I used Kalia's dresser from her nursery as the food table, a large thrifted mirror to check your outfit in, a DIY changing tent, the trunk of dress up goodies and finally, rounding out the dress up theme were glittered hangers strung throughout party with my favorite photos of Kalia from the year.
Every guest went home with a diy ballerina topped homemade bubble favor.
Kalia's party was a multitude of DIYs, all can be found on my blog:
I loved decorating the dressers with streamers, it was so easy and I thought it looked so cute.
Kalia's favorites were the confetti background (the circles are now in her room) and the dress up tent or peek a boo tent as she liked to use it for :)
If you plan on a party of many DIYs, leave yourself ample time to create and make changes if (when) mistakes come up! Having a plan and a timeline also allows for great finds- many items were made from thirfted materials or even free (bubble jars!).
