My very talented friend Lisa just celebrated her daughter's 2nd birthday with a precious "Tutu" party. Get it? I had to share some of her photos and tips for such an adorable theme.
-The invitation: Lisa is wonderful designer and does amazing things with paper. She is my sister's best friend and our entire family has counted on her for countless wedding invitations, baby announcements, Christmas cards and more. Note the floral embellishments on the tutu--that is a lot of precise gluing.
-The favors: It took two days for Lisa and her mother-in-law hand make ten gorgeous tutus in shades of pink and yellow, accented with ribbons and flowers. Lisa included personalized tags for each tutu with glitter accents on each name. At all of her parties for kids, she prints out food labels for allergy consideration.
-The cake: Lisa can't write on cakes very well, so she always prints out the cake message and displays it with a wooden skewer. The cake is three layers of golden vanilla and chocolate with simple butter cream icing. Artsy squiggle decorating masks any mistakes. Whimsy hides A LOT of imperfections for those of us too cheap to buy a cake.
-Entertainment: Pin the tutu on the Pookie (Paige's nickname). Lisa created tutu stickers with each guest's name for the game.
