Gold Glam Birthday Party

February 28, 2015

I have a super fun post for you today … A virtual birthday party!

A what?!?!

A fun, glamorous {and gold} party … online.

You see … I found this great blog, Real Housemoms, and it’s run by this awesome lady, Aubrey, and she let me contribute some ideas to share with her readers every month, and that is fabulous … and today is her birthday!!

So … along with some other fun ladies {that also contribute their creative ideas to Aubrey’s blog every month}, we’re throwing a virtual Birthday Party for her today!

You know … If money weren’t a thing, maybe we could all be together IN PERSON to celebrate with Aubrey, but since money (and time, and kiddos) ARE a thing, this little online party will have to do for today!

So … here’s my take on Aubrey’s Gold Glam Birthday Party:

With that inspiration above in mind, and these random fun feathers I found at Michael’s:


I created some fun DIY drink stirrers for Aubrey’s party:


Yep, it’s a random craft.  And these drink stirrers are probably SO unnecessary.  But they’re fun and festive and silly … and they also feel just a little glamorous!


And I just had to find a way to use those little glittery feathers I found on sale at Michael’s.  With some fun paper straws (also on sale at Target), so sparkly gold tape, and some black ribbon … these were a quick DIY project.  A little ‘flair’ for the drink table …


They’d probably also make some cute cupcake toppers … don’t you think?  But that would have required me to bake (something that I don’t excel at), but I do seem to be okay at drinking …


Cheers, Aubrey!
