Remember that song? “Oh my starry-eeyed surprise, sun down to sun rise. Dance all night, we gonna dance all night, dance all night to this DJ…” OK, thad to get that out. Sometimes I feel like I live in a musical because everything reminds me of a song, even this event decor. I hosted a National Nanny Recognition Week celebration few months back for our local professional nannies in Cincinnati. They are stars.
Theme: VIP (Very Important People). Colors: white, black, gold, and silver. And, what says VIP, like glitter stars? Nothin.
I borrowed a star punch from a crafty friend of mine. I almost purchased this same one at Michael’s but my gut told me that I could save my wallet and I texted her. It was a good thing that I did not have to cut them out by hand with scissors, because this Martha Stewart glitter paper was a mess! A beautiful mess, of course. I sorted them by color and put into envelopes to take to the party venue. After I was done I had all these leftover sheets with star cut-outs. They were just as gorgeous as the actual stars. So, I decided to use them as the pretty on the hand-written notes for each of the nannies. A little spray adhesive and cardstck was all I needed for this quick design. Pretty, right? Plus.. I love it when things all tie in together.
The stars were used as confetti on the banquet table between the DIY Gold-dipped Vases. An inexpensive, quick and easy decor. Sometimes simple says classy.
