DIY, My Gratitude Journal

A party for my girl: the big day

The big day was finally here. Sabrina’s 21st birthday party. I sure was tired from preparing all week, but also very excited. I couldn’t wait for Sabrina to see the special party that I had prepared for her. She had requested a house party with family. She wanted me to surprise her with whatever theme I wanted to decorate with and I think I did.  It was a boho theme, using mostly chevrons. She was happy with the set up. I sent her a couple sneak peeks throughout the week.

I made a banner using mint green chevron fabric as well as black and gold fabric.  I used more chevron fabric as accent pieces on the table. I bought mint green wall art from the Target dollar section (cost $3). It read “Peace Love and Happy Hour”. A boho design that went perfect for this 21 year old birthday party.

I made a candy bar. Lots and lots of candy. Too much candy. I bought bulk candy from Smart and Final but I found some mint green gumballs (the same color as the chevron fabric) in the party section at Target so of course I had to get them. I bought $1 black and gold buckets from Target to use as candy containers. I stuck some feathers in the candy buckets.

I made little brown paper bags as favor bags for the candy. But while I was at Target, I found some treat cups and paper straws in the exact same chevron colors as the theme for the party. Of course, I had to get them too! I made mason jar succulent planters and decorated the front of the jar with the fabrics. I had my son pop some kettle popcorn in the microwave and pour them into paper bags to place on the dining table. I added more succulent planters on the table.

I bought some LED lights from the dollar section at Target ($3) and used them to decorate the main table.

And of course, I made cupcakes.

Today is Sabrina’s actual 21st birthday. I want to say:

I love you Sabi with all my heart. I am so happy and so proud to be your mother. You make me happy every single day. You are a beautiful girl, inside and out. You are my sunshine.  Happy birthday!
