DIY Cute and Colorful Tutti Frutti Birthday Party Decoration Ideas

Today I’m sharing my newest party theme for I party I designed for my middle daughter who just turned 5! I always let all my kids pick their own party theme; though I will admit that I may steer them away from commercially licensed themes. When we were brainstorming themes for her party, she came up with fruit because orange is her current color obsession. From there, her Tutti Frutti birthday party was born!

I had a blast designing these tutti frutti kawaii-inspired invitations, and I just made them.

To welcome our guests, I also designed this “Let’s Go Bananas!” welcome sign to hang on our front door.

My favorite area of the party was definitely the party tables. I spied the fruity tablecloths last summer on clearance, which I knew would be the perfect table covering. I then purchased different fruit slice paper plates and cups.

Here’s a picture of the birthday girl standing in front of her cake table! I scored her fruit slice dress on eBay, and it matched perfectly!

Next up, the cake! Can you believe the cuteness that is going on here? At every party, everyone asks me, “Who does your cakes?” I’m spilling the beans right here, folks!

The most beautiful paper goods and made this layered and glittery fruit banner, as well as the fruit pieces on all the chair backs of the kids’ chairs. Her handiwork is truly divine!

Here’s another look at the dining tables—my favorite part of the party!

These fruit slice balloons provided some definite eye candy when you walked in the door and were the perfect table centerpieces for the dining and buffet tables.

I created this “Orange You Hungry? Let’s Eat!” sign for the food buffet table using the same cute kawaii fruit graphics from the invitation.

I found the perfect pineapple drink containers and filled them with mango lemonade—the perfect fruity drink for a tutti frutti party!

As an activity for the kids, I set up a play fruit stand area outside on our back deck. I had all kinds of play fruit, shopping bags, cash register, scale, shopping carts, play money, etc. I displayed this “Welcome to the Fruit Stand” sign on a tabletop at fruit stand. The kids all had an absolute blast shopping and selling fruit to each other!

For the party favors, I found plush kawaii-inspired pineapples. I placed them inside berry boxes and added someprintable tags featuring different fruits and matching slogans.

I hope you’ve been inspired by some of the tutti frutti birthday party ideas! It’s a party theme that just makes everyone feel happy, inside and out!

DIY: Glowing garland with balls of yarn

Glowing garland with balls of yarn 1

On the eve of the New Year, I would like to tell you how I make a garland with balls of yarn.

We do this usually with his son. He most likes to burst balloons after they glue dries.

Here is a garland presented to me in the new year my sister.

Materials we need:

– PVA glue, better than plain. I use this:

Garland. I buy them in Ikeja. The Chinese are not suitable as light bulbs on them very much, and a small distance between them. Well and reliability again. This garland on batteries. She has a huge advantage: you do not get attached to the outlet. It can be hung wherever you want; – balloons. The smallest that can buy. I buy them just a big package, it is cheaper. More to come  but pharmacies they have gone missing;

Thread should be cotton, or not impregnated with glue, and the design does not turn solid.

The thickness you choose to your liking. Remember you need only one thing: the thinner the yarn, the denser should be winding. With a thicker thread than Iris ball can be more filigree.

Everything has its little secrets. And for them, I’ll tell you.

Inflate balloons. We try to make them round.

In the future, when winding thread can be slightly adjusted form.

If you want to relieve yourself a little further their effort to extract from the finished balls burst balloons before they can be wound a little grease or vegetable oil or fat cream. But there is a BUT. Is wound in such a case, the thread will be more difficult, since they will slide over the ball. In general, with such a small amount of oil to put optional, but if you want to make a big ball, then this procedure, you can not avoid, because otherwise, it will necessarily when you pop the balloon.

We perform in a plastic container two holes thick needle.

There is also a nuance. The needle must not be much thicker filament. If the hole will be a very large, then the thread is too wet, the glue will flow down your arms. If the hole is too small, then the thread will be almost dry and the ball does not get strong.

Fill the glue in the container and begin to wind thread the beads. The winding should be dense, but too drag is not necessary because the ball will turn rough. Once dry the balls ready for several hours. The bigger, the better. Threads should not be just dry, but firm. If much can not wait, you can dry the hair dryer.

Then comes the long-awaited and most favorite moment! Bursting balls !!!

That’s what we’ve got: After that, everything is very simple. We put in the small gaps between the thread bulb garlands. For reliability can be secured with hot glue. Install the batteries and come up with your child a place for garlands!

Because of thread and glue, you can do a lot of interesting things. Shades and just beautiful things

How to make beautiful garland of balloons

garland of balloons 1

We need balloons with a diameter of 20-25 cm (10 or 12 inches)

Inflate balloons.

It is necessary to calibrate the balls at the same size. To do this, we need to make the calibrator with the required dimensions garlands (we homemade particleboard shny calibrator defined sizes 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 cm) Here is an example of manufacturing a garland of 25 cm. The calibrator can successfully replace any capacity (bucket, pot diameter require

Balls must be strictly calibrated by size. It is best to do the calibration on the long side of the ball – from head to tail.

Calibrated balls couples relate to each other

Better use of quality balls from Italy, Belgium, Colombia, Mexico and Portugal. Balls in China, unfortunately, are at a 50% defective. Quality balloons are made of natural rubber latex, thereby, tires easily stretched.

We need to get here are blank. An important point: floors must be clean, without shavings, sand and dirt. This photo shoot took place in extremely unfavorable conditions for the balls. Please take into account the remark about the purity of the surface, because It depends on the length of life of the balls

Twist resulting each other, in the end should turn out here is the link – the main components of garlands.

Like this.

To bind a garland, we need to prepare the rope. Suitable conventional underwear. Lesko and nylon thread used is undesirable because of the high probability of a cut latex pulling.

The end of the rope must be tied to anything.

Getting links from stringing balls on a rope. At the same time it is necessary to twist the rope between the balls, making one turn around each world.

Like this.

The next link is imposed against the first staggered. Thus we get a spiral pattern.

And since each other. It is important not to break the pattern sequence.

Like this.

Link by link are arranged in a beautiful garland.

Make a garland of the required length. When inflating balloons with a diameter of 20 cm to 1 meter garlands should be 7 to 4 units in the world. When inflating the balloons 25 cm respectively 6 units on 4 ball.

Street installation should preferably in calm weather by 2-3 assistants, trying to make mounting with less acute angles surfaces.

Remember, garland hung on the outside, live a lot less than the set indoors. During installation, it is desirable to have available spare balls in case of bursting of the ball in the chain.

Type of finished and assembled garlands
