This was such a fun party! Thank you Ava and Allie for letting us be a part of your very special birthday!
We are so excited to feature this Woodbridge, Ontario birthday party for girls that we did a few weeks ago for two twin birthday girls turning 7 years old. The theme of the party was unicorn and mermaid, each of the birthday girls picked her favourite theme and the guests had the choice of choosing a unicorn or mermaid charm. The was such a fun and magical theme! The colours of the party were teal, pink and purple and the mom made the event look so magical!
The birthday girls's mom decided to hold the party at a local community center since she had over 30 girls attending. The event started off with a tea party. The girls had blue "under the sea punch" and sandwiches in the shape of unicorns and mermaids. The mom also had custom unicorn and mermaid cake pops made. The mother had teal and purple table cloths, with one half of the room decorated as an under the sea mermaid theme, and the other half of the room had rainbows and unicorn inspired decor.
After the tea party, all the girls made magical slime. For magical unicorn slime recipe click here.
The girls than made our fancy bracelet package and we brought teal, purple and pink beads and unicorn and mermaid charms. The girls then did a fashion show with their best unicorn and mermaid poses and then it was time to go home. The mom then gave out the unicorn slime and bracelets as the party lootbag.
This was such a fun party! Thank you Ava and Allie for letting us be a part of your very special birthday!
We are so excited to feature this Toronto craft fashion birthday party that took place in North York, Ontario. This was a very special 10 year old birthday party for us because the birthday girl had two older sisters and we have done their 10th birthday parties, we felt so special to have become part of this family's 10 birthday party tradition. Because this mom had done two 10th birthday parties already, she wanted this one to be extra special and was really having a hard time choosing a theme. We finally decided to make it a fashion craft party and it was a hit with this group of tweens!
The main entertainment for the party was our friendship bracelet package. The girls all made bracelets with little heart charms that said made with love or best friends.
After the jewelry making was done, the mom made a runway inspired by a runway that she saw on pinterest (see top center photo). The mom had a big box of feather boas, dress up clothes, sunglasses and hair accessories, and the girls had so much fun dressing up and walking down the runway. After the fashion show, the mom had the girls pose for photos using a large frame that she had prepared. She was inspired by a photo online, see top left photo. The mom then printed out the photos and sent them out with her thank you cards after the party.
The mom had a cake made using the inspiration from the top right photo. She made sure to have a necklace on the cake to go with the theme of jewelry making.
This was such a fun and special fashion craft birthday party for us!
We often are so inspired by the amazing ideas that so many of our clients come up with, that we have decided to start blogging about them to give other moms ideas of what they can do at their party. This post we are going to highlight a unicorn themed birthday party that we did in Waterloo, Ontario.
This Waterloo, Ontario mom went all out for her 7 year old daughter's birthday party. They came up with the idea to do a unicorn party when they saw what a hit the Starbucks unicorn frappe was with her daughter and her friends. They decided that they wanted to do a party using the colours of the frappe and they went all out.
They asked us to bring only teal and pink beads as well as unicorn charms to go with their theme, we were thrilled with how they bracelets turned out.
The mom also made unicorn bark using only 3 ingredients and it looked so pretty, here is how to make unicorn bark. She also had beautiful pastel cupcakes and made unicorn frappes. here is the unicorn frappe recipe.
It was such a fun party and we were so happy to be a part of it!
In ten years of providing jewelry making birthday parties, we have been to many dance themed birthday parties. This is no surprise since many of our little beaders dance and often invite their whole dance group to their birthday parties.
When doing a dance themed party the first thing you do is design your invitation. There are so many beautiful dance invitations, but the tulle invitations are our favourite, and here is a video showing you how to make it.
The decor for a dance and/or ballet themed party is so beautiful. Lots of pink tulle, gold sparkles, and ballet dancer cutouts. You can make pink tulle table skirts and chair covers to make the party even more magical.
Food at a dance and/or ballet themed party is all pink and cream with gold accents. Pink cupcakes with gold sprinkles, pink macaroons, parfaits, white bread with pink cream cheese, and pink lemonade.
Activities for your dance themed party can include musical chairs, hot potato, or freeze dance to ballet music, making bracelets using pinks and creams with a dance charm. Decorating your down dance bag, or the girls can create their own dance and preform it at the end of the party.
We hope we inspired you with our dance party ideas. Comment with any ideas of your own. Have a great party!
One of our favourite party themes ever is a unicorn party theme. We adore all the beautiful magical colours and how much fun you can have with this magical theme.
A mom booking a beading party was doing a unicorn theme and asked us if we could design a custom beading project for her party, of course we said yes, and we were thrilled with how it turned out and wanted to share this awesome party theme with you!
This is such an easy theme to choose invites for because there are so many beautiful unicorn invitations to choose from. You can also download a printable invitation online such as this one.
We adore the colour scheme that you would use for this party. All pastel colours, such as pastel blue, pastel pink, pastel purple, pastel pink, pastel green and pastel yellow. You would also use gold and gold glitter.
Blow up balloons in pastal colours and blow up clear balloons and fill them with glitter see here for instructions.
Hang up dreamcatchers in pastel colours, you can make these yourself, like this beautiful one from Kara's party ideas.
You can also make your own garland like this one in pastel colours to match your theme.
For a unicorn party you want the food to look as beautiful as possible and in pastel colours, such as marshmallows, chocolate covered pretzels, and unicorn bark (click here for recipe).
When making your cake or cupcake, make the inside of the cake rainbow, this is such a fun surprise for the guests. When making the cake or cupcakes, use pastel colours and lots of gold glitter.
This party is all about magical fun. Hand out unicorn horns to all of the guests to wear during the party. Have them decorate ice cream cones with icing and sprinkles to make their own unicorn themed treat. You can also play pin the horn on the unicorn and have a unicorn pinata. Another fun idea is to have the girls make jewelry with a unicorn charm. For more information about our fancy bracelet birthday party packages.
We hope that you have as much fun planning your unicorn themed birthday party as we had doing this post.
Last spring, after receiving so many requests for sparkly beads, we decided to create our sparkliest package yet and we are so excited to announce that this package, our fancy bracelet package, is a huge hit! We are very proud to say that our little beaders are loving it and it has become our most requested package.
One of our favourite parts of doing what we do is seeing the expressions of absolute delight when the guests at our parties see what they are making, and see all the beads and charms that they get to work with.
Our little beaders (and their moms!) love the wide selection of charms, such as unicorn, fairy, ballet, hearts, snowflakes and even sport themed charms. We made this package with a girl's hockey theme and they were so excited to have beautiful sparkly bracelet with a cool hockey charm.
Our biggest reward is seeing the joy that our service brings. If you or your little crafter have a party theme in mind, let us know and we can order charms in to match your party theme.
Thank you to all of our wonderful customers for allowing us to keep doing what we do.
When we book our birthday parties, moms often ask us for tips for planning their jewelry making birthday party. One of our favourite suggestions is for the mom to make a jewelry box birthday cake. Here is the perfect jewelry box cake recipe.

Lately we have noticed a large trend in Shopkins themed birthday parties, and we think it's such a fun theme and goes perfectly with a beading birthday party.
Here is how to have an amazing Shopkins themed beading birthday party.
First you need some Shopkins themed party invitations. A great way to make invitations is to use a free online printable or template to create a custom Shopkins birthday party invite. Here is a sample of a fun and easy template.
Once the invites are sent out it is time to start planning your party decor. Use lots of bright colours. Use online printables to print out large Shopkins characters or banners with Shopkins characters on them. Using marker, add faces to popcorn cups to make your own Poppy Corn.
A fun idea of what to do at your party is to make Shopkins themed bff necklaces. Here is a link showing you how to make these necklaces. You can add this charm to any of our amazing birthday party packages.
Another fun game is to play Shopkins trivia or provide Shopkins colour pages. Visit shopkinsworld.com for great printables.
Make your own Shopkins themed pinata and fill it with candy and Shopkins.
When choosing your cake, be sure to include Shopkins in the theme, the guests will be thrilled to receive their own Shopkins. An easy and fun idea is to frost cupcakes in your favourite bright colours and then place a Shopkin on top of each cupcake.
We hope you find our Shopkins birthday party tips helpful!
We have noticed a trend lately of moms booking Paris themed jewelry making birthday parties for their tween daughters. After doing some research we totally understand why! A huge part of any Paris themed party is pearls and we have so many packages where the girls make beautiful glass pearl necklaces. To see these packages visit our birthday party page.
The first thing when planning your Paris themed party is to decide on your party decor. From our research we have noticed that most Paris themed birthday parties include the colours of soft pink, white and black, pearls, the Eiffel tower, roses, flowers, ruffles and poodles. Since Paris is known as the city of lights, hang up lots of lights and hang Monet inspired paintings on the walls.
The next thing to decide is on your party activities. Of course, jewelry making is the perfect activity (and it becomes the party lootbag). Other fun activities are to hire a mime to perform at the party, have the children draw carton portraits of each other, or play Eiffel tower ring toss. We also suggest that you put out a box full of feather boas, glass pearl necklaces, sunglasses and hats and have the girls do a fashion show. You can set up a photo booth and take some photos to help you remember the party.
Food ideas for a Paris birthday parties are croissants, cheese tray, quiche, french bread, macaroons, cream puffs, pink lemonade and fruit salad (a cute idea is to make mini fruit salads in cupcake liners). It is always a fun idea to have a Paris themed dessert table with french themed desserts such as Macroons, Eclairs and cream puffs as well as candy, cookies and cakes decorated with pink, black and white. Visit our Paris birthday party ideas Pinterest page for more ideas.
We hope you find our Paris Birthday Party ideas for tweens helpful! Please leave us a comment and let us know how your party went.
One of our most popular beaded projects that we teach is our "three wishes" bracelet. We have made this bracelet with kindergarten classes, Sparks (Girl Guides of Canada) and church groups as a Mother's Day Workshop. We have also made this bracelet at many of our school workshops. This holiday season, we have been making this bracelet at all of our holiday parties, this bracelet is perfect for boys and girls, moms and dads (even though dads prefer it without a heart charm).
We love the idea behind this bracelet, the idea that the wearer has three wishes when they receive this bracelet. We also love the simplicity of it, and how easily it can be stacked with other bracelets to have an arm party.
48-52 - 4mm glass beads
3 - 3mm silver beads
1 - lobster clasp
1 j- ump ring
1 - heart charm
2 - 2 mm crimp beads
1 - piece of tigertail the length of your
wrist and then add one inch.
1 - flat nosed pliers.
Using the flat nosed pliers and the first crimp bead, attach the lobster clasp to one side of the tigertail .
String the heart charm, and then string half of your beads onto the tigertail. String the three silver beads, these beads are the three wishes.
String the remainder of your beads onto the tigertail. Using the flat nosed pliers and remaining crimp bead attach the other side of the tiger tail to the jump ring.
Enjoy your beautiful new three wishes bracelet!
