1) Tissue Paper Flowers
This is our absolute favourite party decoration. You can make them big or small, in any colour, and there are so many different variations to choose from. See our last blog post to see how to make these stunning decorations or check out this easy tutorial from http://www.twotwentyone.net/2014/04/how-to-make-tissue-paper-pom-poms/
We love making these in matching colours to the tissue paper flowers. These can be made in tissue paper or sparkly paper. The perfect complement to beading birthday parties, we have seen them in every shade of blue for spa, under the sea or little mermaid parties, or we have seen them in sparkly pinks and golds for princess parties. Here is a detailed tutorial http://www.hgtv.com/design/make-and-celebrate/entertaining/make-your-own-tissue-paper-tassel-garland.
Instead of filling up balloons with helium, use blown up balloons and hang them from the ceiling upside down. This way you do not have to pay for helium but it gives you the same effect. It gives you the same floating effect as balloons filled with helium without the additional price.

This no sew tutu skirt may take a little bit more work, but after the party, your daughter can keep it in her bedroom and it will dress up the whole room. We think this would be perfect for a spa party (in blue and silver), a princess or fairy party (in purple, pink or gold) and a ballet party (in pink).
