This weekend we were a part of an outdoor 10th Birthday Party in Mississauga, Ontario. This was such a magical party. Since the birthday girl was turning double digits, the mom did a grownup rose gold and white themed birthday party. The girls did our friendship bracelet package and the bracelets had a best friend charm on them and the girls choose from a variety of pastel coloured glass beads. The girls had so much fun and it was the perfect activity for them to reconnect before school starts up.
We were invited by one of our favourite event designers, Megan Wappel Designs, to provide our rosary bracelet making event services at the most beautiful First Communion in Richmond Hill. From the moment we walked into the private home party, we were transported to another world.
From the pastel purple and pink palette, to the flower walls, flower balls, and flowers cascading above the dance floor, to a giant gumball full of the sweetest toys and treats, a dance floor and beautiful cake trio, every single detail of this event was so perfectly planned, which is something Megan Wappel Designs is known for, and even though we have worked with Megan and her team before, and we know how stunning and perfectly planned her events are, we were blown away by this event.
We hope you enjoy these beautiful photos as much as enjoyed sharing them. To see more photos of this event you can visit Megan Wappel Designs instagram here.
This weekend we did the most special birthday party for two sisters turning 5 and 8. The mom was looking for an activity that would be perfect for both ages, and so she decided to do a unicorn themed jewelry making birthday party.
This was such a fun party for us. The girls made our unicorn themed bracelet package. We brought our beautiful unicorn charms and lots of pretty beads, including shell, pearls, glow-in-dark, and lots of sparkly beads.
The mom did such an amazing job decorating the house with unicorn inspired decorations. She ordered the most beautiful unicorn themed cupcakes. She also did a beautiful candy kabob station to go with the theme of beading and the girls absolutely loved it!
The most perfect activity for a group for 5-7 year old girls and we were so happy to be a part of such a special celebration!
So far this year, our unicorn fancy bracelet party has been our most popular. This package, designed for girls ages 5-8, is perfect for a unicorn themed birthday party, children are taught to make a memory wire bracelet with a special unicorn charm. Using our professional bead trays, each little beader will customize their bracelet with the charm of their choice and by choosing their favourite special sparkly beads.
We love the children's excitement when they see the many beautiful beads and charms that they can choose from. Once they have completed their work of art, we play a few games, have a fashion show and do a photo shoot (optional).
The package includes beading materials for a bracelet, instructors for 75 minutes, beading princess tiara, special colouring activity, invitations and elegant jewellery storage pouch. $170 plus hst for 10 children or less, $16 plus hst for each additional child.
Here are some photos from a Mississauga, Ontario girl's 6th unicorn themed birthday party that we did this weekend. The mom planned the party as a surprise for her daughter. The girls made unicorn bracelets and then did our special unicorn themed colouring activity. It was such a fun and special party!
Fruit kabobs are perfect for a jewelry making birthday party because they suit the theme of beading and they are also a yummy and healthy snack that is fun to eat.
Lately we have noticed a growing trend in Toronto Girl's Hockey Teams booking jewelry making workshops for their team. We have provided our services at hockey team holiday parties, beginning of the season icebreakers, and at the end of the hockey season parties.
We love this idea and ordered hockey charms to go with this theme. These charms have become our most popular birthday party charms.
Some teams ask us to only bring the team colours, other teams ask for lots of colours, but all the teams request the hockey charm.
To book a jewelry making party for your hockey team, you can contact us for more information.
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.
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.

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.
We at Beading Buds love this time of year. We love all the festivities, spending time with friends and family. Over the past few weeks we have visited schools all over the greater Toronto area and made hundreds of these glass bead wrap bracelets (which can also be worn as necklaces). The students had the opportunity to make a gift of love for someone special. We were so impressed with how beautiful the bracelets are and are so excited to hear how much the recipients love their new jewelry.
