This Pink, Turquoise and Zebra Stripes Birthday party was so much fun to plan for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I am excited to share some photos from her party. The theme was based off of our Sydney Princess Zebra Photo Invitation. The invitation shown above was slightly modified from the original design to accommodate a vertical photo layout.
The banner, the water bottle label (black & white zebra striped paper), the zebra striped background for the tags and cupcake toppers were all from a Zebra Printable Partyware file by Plates and Napkins. The great thing with using a printable file is that you could print the designs out on different color card stock papers and use various shaped scrapbooking punches to give more variety in your party decor.
Dressing up water bottles with decorative themed paper is quite simple. Here is a tutorial from Glorious Treats to make water resistant labels. Tags were placed on the front of the bottles to tie in more of the themed colors. One thing to note...since the tags and labels were not waterproof, the bottles could not be placed in an ice bucket and could only be refrigerated.
The small Pom Poms (flower balls) are what I am the most proud of! This was my first time making them and they were extremely easy, inexpensive and oh so pretty!!! It's hard to believe that one pom pom was made from a wiffle ball, some coffee filters and spray paint. The wiffle ball, coffee filters and smaller vases were all from the DOLLAR STORE. I first came across this great idea on Everyday Celebrating which has a link to Me Making Do's tutorial.
Can't have a Zebra themed birthday party without balloons...zebra print balloons! I found these at Sweet Creations on Ebay.
In addition to the cupcakes, the dessert table had pink rice krispy treats made with strawberry marshmallows, Hershey Kisses (ones with brown stripes on the silver foil) and Hot Pink Zebra Striped Butter Cookies from an Etsy shop. Those cookies not only looked wonderful, but were delicious!
Can't forget about the party outfit! The Hot Pink and Zebra Stripes Personalized Tee and the Zebra Petti-Tutu were from our site.

If Blue and Brown are the colors for your Baby Shower, then here is an inspiration board to help you plan it. Does that diaper cake look familiar? That was a Pitter Patter Creation's original. For those of you who are new fans and followers to PPC, we originally started out in 2006 as an online diaper cake store. Since then we have added many baby, kid and mommy products to celebrate life's precious moments.
Unfortunately, our line of diaper cakes were discontinued a couple of years ago. As the business grew, we were not able to to produce the diaper cakes and keep up with our invitations and gifts orders. Maybe one day we will be able to bring them back. I sure do miss making them!
