Here are a few photos from my daughter's 4th birthday party I would like to share. Originally, the theme was going to be centered around the movie Tangled since that is currently her favorite movie. However, we decided a Moonbounce theme would be more fitting due to the party venue. This was her first "friends" party which was very exciting!
I created the invitation, tags, water bottle labels, bag toppers and bubble bottle labels in a pink, purple and aqua theme with a pink zebra striped background. (I really need to get away from the pink, aqua & zebra stripes theme. This was a similar color combo I did for her party last year, but in different shades. LOL!) The moonbounce graphic used here was by ©Goodness and Fun.
Deciding on party favors was a little difficult since there aren't many moonbounce themed items for the varying age group of 2 - 9 year old guests we were expecting. I decided a custom made moonbounce cookie plus bubbles and some chocolate treats would be perfect to tie in the theme. However, this great cookie idea didn't come to me until the very last minute. Bundles of Cookies worked their magic and created an adorable Moonbounce Cookie to match the invitations. A big thank you for their quick turnaround!
As I have mentioned above, originally this was supposed to be a Tangled themed party; I searched online for a Rapunzel costume that didn't have much of the itchy tulle. Not easy to find! I was happy to have found an Etsy vendor, Loverdoverclothing who created this beautiful Rapunzel Retro Tutu Dress shown in the invitation.
As for the birthday number shirt, this is a modified version of the Personalized Scalloped Shirt that is available on Pitter Patter Creation's website.

Planning a Girl's Rock Star Birthday party? Here are a few recent photos from my daughter's 8th birthday to help give you some ideas. This theme was so much fun to plan and easy too! Some of the activities included playing Just Dance on the Wii, a dance contest, a small craft and pinata. A couple of activities that were planned, but we didn't have time for were Karaoke and a Jeopardy/Name That Tune/Trivia Game.
Each guest received invitations that looked like concert tickets. Once the girls arrived at the house, their names were marked off the VIP List and given a Backstage Pass. The partyware, decor and favors were from Party City, Birthday in a Box and Michaels. My husband created the Security and Event Staff badges plus the guitar cutout that was used for the craft project. I designed the invitations plus the personalized tags, cupcake toppers, water bottle labels and backstage passes.
Hope this gives you some ideas for your Little girl's next birthday party!

For my daughter's upcoming 2nd grade Valentine's party, she was asked to bring in bottled water for the class. I thought it would be fun to dress them up with Valentine's labels. Unfortunately, I am still a beginner with PSE (Photoshop Elements) and do not have much experience in designing personalized water bottle labels. Just in case you are wondering... all of the products currently on my site, Pitter Patter Creations, are from other talented designers that I have partnered up with to sell.
In the past few weeks, many designers' blogs have offered free Valentine party printables for cards, cupcake toppers and tags; however I haven't come across any for water bottle labels. I decided to put myself to up to the challenge!
The photo above shows the personalized Valentine water bottle label that I came up with. It did take me some time to figure out how to create them and have the labels print out correctly since I was not working with an existing template. However, I am very happy with how they turned out! These were made to fit the smaller Deer Park water bottles 8 fl. oz. Some of the graphics used were from The Coffee Shop Blog. (BTW, I love that blog and have mentioned it here in previous posts. You will find photography and Photoshop tips plus free downloadable actions and digital elements. Definitely, check it out!)
If you are having a Valentine's Day Party and want to make your water bottles look more festive, here is a non-personalized label you may use. The watermark will not be on the printed file. Click here (Google Documents) and download the free printable .pdf file. If that link doesn't work, then try this one (4shared). Not only was designing the label a new thing for me, but also had to figure how I was going to share it. Eeek! Decided to load the file to both of these free programs, just in case one did not work for everyone. Please note this is for Personal Use only, not Commercial Use.
Once you download the file on to your pc, you will need Acrobat Acrobat Reader to read the .pdf file. There are 4 labels per 8.5 x 11 sheet. Print out as many as you like, cut them up and use double sided tape to secure each to a 8 fl oz. water bottle. Enjoy!
