Simple birthday brunch for my son who loves to eat.
I found some left over felt and paper in my craft closet and I used the colors to guide the party.
Modern and whimsical. When I am planning a party, I will scour stores looking for inspiration. In this case, I saw the ballerina cupcake toppers and fell in love. It doesn't matter that I was planning a party for my son. They were so playful and fit the color story.
I sewed paper together to create garland and I cut out birds out of felt. I saw a tutorial at http://www.purlbee.com/mollys-party-garland/ and instead of using fabric I used some scrap paper I had in my crafting closet.
I loved the cupcakes. I found the idea in the book, What's New, Cupcake?: Ingeniously Simple Designs for Every Occasion and completely fell in love.
Follow your instincts.
