This ‘sweet’ themed party took place at Sweet Pete’s in Jacksonville, FL. The client wanted an entire candy themed party. I designed the custom labels for the centerpieces, goodie bags, place cards, water bottles and candy buffet menu tags. Party decor by Girly Girl Partea’s.
Of all the baby showers, my utmost favorite theme is Dr. Suess! I remember reading those books all the time as a child, so the theme is just so fitting to welcome a new baby. This theme also gives you the opportunity to use bright, fun colors and is gender neutral.
I wanted to make Truffla Trees based on The Lorax. That was my favorite Dr Suess story growing up and the trees just look like so much fun! These was really easy and cheap to make.
Materials included: Tissue Pom Poms (from Hobby Lobby) in various colors $4.99 each, Two Foam Pool Sticks (from the Dollar Tree) $1.00 each, a roll of black electrical tape (from the Dollar Tree) $1.00 and a hot glue gun which I had at home.
To prep the tree trunks, you simply wrap the black tape in a diagonal motion down the length of the foam pool stick.
Once complete, you want to open the tissue pom poms and assemble/fluff out per the instructions on the packaging. Use a little bit of hot glue on the end of the foam pool stick and gently place the assembled tissue pom pom to the end. Hold until the glue is dry and YOU’RE DONE! Super easy!
We used these for decoration on either side of the TV.
The additional tissue pom poms were hung around the house for decoration. We also had balloons in various colors floating around the house which really popped and gave the whole space a nice colorful and whimsical look.
One of the most important elements of any party is the food. My mom and best friend hosted this shower for me and planned the food based on popular Dr. Suess books. I made the food labels and we simply taped them to tooth picks. If you mouse over the images below you’ll see the description of the foods accordingly.
We played a super fun trivia game for everyone to fill in the missing word to popular Dr. Suess rhymes. You can download a PDF of the game here: Dr. Suess Trivia Game
My aunt made the cake. She was given free reign to be creative and design whatever she wanted. This was the result. Quite amazing, right?!
This beautiful shower was planned by my business partner, Elsy. As the owners of Girly-Girl Partea’s, the premier children’s event planner in North Florida, it was almost guaranteed that this shower for the unborn princess would be fitting for royalty. The printables are currently available in my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/232359361/princess-baby-shower-themed-printables

It’s that time of the year again! Girl Scout cookies galore! You can’t go into a supermarket without passing by a Girly Scout troop selling America’s favorite cookies. As a former Girl Scout myself, I remember the days of cookie booths and the fun we had decorating to help promote our cookie sales.
This FREE downloadable banner is the perfect accent to any cookie booth. Grab the attention of your potential customers and boost your cookie sales. The instructions are simple.
- Download the file you want (choose from the two below).
- Print the PDF on any home printer or at an office supply store (Staples, Office Max, etc).
- Cut out the triangle pennant shapes.
- Using a hole punch, punch holes in the top corners of the pennant.
- Run ribbon, string or yarn through the holes and hang where desired.
There are two print files, the first spells out “Girl Scout Cookies” and includes the Girl Scout logo.
The second file is fully customizable for your troop and includes “Troop” plus numbers 0-9 so that you can customize it with your specific troop number.
If you’re planning an end of the year party for your troop and need some fun decorations to dress it up, check out our Girl Scout themed party printable pack on our Etsy store.
Wishing you the best for successful cookie sales! (P.S. If you feel so obliged, Thin Mints are my favorite)
