Freelance - The "Li Li" Mermaid 1st Birthday Party

A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to create a few "Eccentric Designs" for my God Daughter's 1st Birthday - the theme of the Party was, "The Little Mermaid" or the "Li Li" Mermaid as we affectionately refer to her as Li-Li Pooh. It's been extremely exciting following Miss Li-Li Pooh on her journey from the womb to the world and you may recall the - Sugar and Spice Baby Shower - that was celebrated in honor of her last year.

I truly enjoy celebrating loved ones and creating something special for them ... it never seems like work when you're doing something you love, for someone whom you love. Initially, my best friend (Li-Li Pooh's mommy) and myself were brainstorming for a "Carnival" themed party - after getting me all riled up and excited about that theme my friend breaks the news to me that she's changed her mind. So, then she came up with the idea of having a Disney Princess, "Little Mermaid" party and I automatically fell in love with the idea of this party (because I secretly have an infatuation with Mermaids and yes I believe they're real!) We pinned several ideas on Pinterest and Googled like crazy trying to find thrifty, budget friendly, and easy DIY projects to make her party special and one of a kind.

- Eccentric Birthday Swag - 

My first mission was to create Miss Li-Li-Pooh an adorable Tutu outfit. I wanted to stay true to the "Little Mermaid" color theme; however I wanted the tutu to have a "sea" feel ... I did this by adding corals, greens, and golds to the traditional pink and red colors.

Next, I wanted to capture this milestone birthday for Miss Li-Li-Pooh, so I created a "Milestone Birthday Chart" for her listing specific details about her regarding her weight, height, likes, favorite foods, etc.

It Don't Mean A Thing...If You Ain't Got That Drink!

Have you ever noticed that Party/Event Planners seem to never put an emphasis on the drinks?  Think about it… how many times have you attended an affair and you walk into the venue and your mouth drops in awe of all the beauty and creativity.  You marvel at the table d├ęcor and extravagant centerpieces. The Dessert and Candy Buffet are color coordinated and well selected to compliment the theme of the function, and even the food choices on the menu have been handpicked to execute the vision of the special occasion.  You’re surrounded by glitz and glamour, then a Caterer walks up to you and asks, “Do you want Water or Ice tea?” in your conventional glass cup ... really! Today’s blog post is about incorporating cool, fun, innovative, and inexpensive drink ideas into your next event.

 Kool-Aid Ice Cubes

Go to your local grocery store and pick up some of your favorite flavor Kool-Aid packages, purchase different flavors for color dimension or choose one flavor/color if you are planning a color theme event.  Make the Kool-Aid just as you would if you were making it for your family. Instead of leaving it in a pitcher for serving; pour it in ice cube trays and freeze.  When the cubes are frozen place them in a transparent cup or Mason Jar and pour any clear beverage of your choice over the cubes (my family uses Sprite).  Not only will this make your drinks POP… but as the colorful Ice cubes melt watch how your drink change colors, and it taste great!
