OMG let’s do this again! My craft biz turned five this past October so I threw a birthday craft party complete with craft stations, a photobooth, and so. much. cake. I might need to throw craft parties on the regular. There was so much excitement and craftiness to be had. Here’s a look back at the awesomeness.
I held the party at Sticky Art Lab in Berkeley. My lovely friend Katy greeted all the guests. We’ve known each other since junior high and I’m sooooo happy she lives nearby again.
All the guests got an FtF VIP name tag and indigo dyed tote bag filled with a craft pack, a special birthday edition soy candle by Lighten Up Shoppe, and a felt pennant or garland by yours truly.
I set up a confetti crown station. There was confetti everywhere and it was magical.
The decorate-your-own-banner station was a big hit, too.
At the photobooth people asked “What app are you using?” Answer: camera. We got a fun clicker to use with our iPad so guests got to take as many selfies at the photobooth as they wanted.
I’m currently obsessing over gold letter balloons and these fun streamer garlands! Also, giant food props!
Desserts were created by my talented friend Diana of Good Butter Best. The Brooklyn blackout cake with pudding and sour cream frosting was the gift that kept on giving. So. Good.
Origami artist Jeremy Shafer even taught us a few origami fish folding techniques.
Oh, and I had a pop-up shop, too!
Thank you to my Fish family for celebrating with me and for supporting me through the years!
I hope I get to create and share the handmade love for years to come. Who wants a craft party next? I want to help plan / host!
