I was absolutely thrilled when I opened my inbox and discovered this adorable Glam Play Date waiting for me. Courtney Price of Glamour Avenue Parties set out to plan a fun day for a group of girly girls, incorporating causal, yet glam details. The pink and aqua color pallet, combined with the heart and pinwheel details came together perfectly to create a playful event that any tween girl would be thrilled to attend!
Here are the details as told by Courtney….
I was contacted by my client to design something cute and fun for a play date for a group of girly girls. At the mention of “play date” the wheels in my mind began spinning and I thought let’s make this a glam play date and for the decor, I want whimsical and fun. I settled on pinwheels and hearts as I thought that would capture the essence of the event, casual yet glam.
Description: My task was to utilize a pink and aqua color scheme, but the rest of the details were up to me to bring this glam play date to life!
Design Inspiration: With a pink, aqua and white color palette I liked the idea of using playful details such as pinwheels and hearts. I found out very quickly pinwheels look gorgeous as decoration and are a breeze to make, just cut desired paper into squares and snip diagonally from each corner then glue every other point to the middle and voila! Simple, easy, yet beautiful party decorations!
Project Details: I created paper pinwheels for the centerpiece and used oversized dots as table confetti. Fun party additions included a mini sweets table with cupcakes and pink beverages served in plastic drink bottles against a Pink and Aqua Pinwheel Backdrop. The beverage containers included pretty striped paper straws and handmade pinwheels with heart decals. My client also incorporated a mini candy buffet with color coordinating sweets for the guest to nosh on in between activities.
For activities guests made ribbon charm bracelets, lip balm, and pretty handbands as well as having their nails painted, and make up application in light and glittery colors. The girls also took turns playing tic tac toe and other games on their place mats that doubled as work areas. To end our activities guests showed off their “made over looks” by taking photos in front of our pink backdrop!
