I’m very excited to post this cute little party today, though I guess I tend to be biased. I thought I’d share some pictures from the annual Girls’ Night Valentine’s Day Extravaganza that I throw every year. It was a great little cocktail party and a way to bring some of the amazing women in my life together and thank them for their friendship. Here are some of the pictures I snapped while setting up for the evening. Hope you enjoy!
The fabric flowers that lined the front of the table became the favors for the women at the party. The alligator clips on the back allowed the women to attach them to their blouses, sweaters, belts, or wear them as hair clips. Check out how I sported mine.
Oh, and don’t you just love the pink and yellow layered cake? Absolutely adorable and incredibly delicious.

Here is the breakdown of costs for the decorations:
Circle Garland- $5.50 ($4 for 2 yellow and 2 pink scrapbooking papers and $1.50 for twine)

How exciting! For under $40, I was able to create all the decorations for the party and have a lot of craft materials left over (I tend to over buy) that I can use on other projects. What types of DIY decor do you like to create for your personal parties?
