Kalia’s 2nd Birthday- Dress Up Party!

Finally, the reveal of Kalia’s party!  I included a rare picture (for the blog) of Kalia as well 🙂 The theme of the party was dress up and the color palette was pink, white and gold!

Kalia is in front of the confetti wall backdrop- I used gold glitter sticker paper and pink contact paper to create the circles.  You can find the confetti photo backdrop DIY here– super easy!  Kalia LOVED the circles and they now decorate her room!

The main room- I used Kalia’s dresser for the cake and favor table.  A large thrifted mirror ($25 score!!) to check your dress up outfit in, a DIY changing tent and a dress up trunk:

Lots of dress up goodies for people to grab and take pictures in front of the confetti wall!  The dresser trunk is an antique steamer trunk that I made over (post to come later!)

Do you recognize the tent sheet?  It was Kalia’s tablecloth from her party last year- another DIY!

Glitter hangers held some of my favorite pictures of Kalia throughout the year.  The hangers were strung in multiple areas of the party. Glitter Hanger DIY & Crepe Paper Lantern DIY

Hanging streamers, gold glitter tape and pom pom strings was an easy way to add some depth and texture to the dresser.  (and I loved the look!)

The first cake I ever baked from scratch- it did not LOOK good, but it did taste great!

My sisters in law and I! I had not revealed I was pregnant yet, did the boa cover the bump? 😉

The favors were homemade bubbles! The ballerinas would be great for so many little girl party ideas! Bubble Favor DIY & Glitter Animal DIY

Most everything was made over from thrifted items (even the photo props & some party supplies were thrift store finds!)- I went to the thrift store for months to gather, find and DIY.

Not thrifted items list:

Ballerina dolls via Etsy Store AisforApronStrings
