All White Party

I recently hosted an all white party at my house.  The guest of honor had no idea about the party, and was consequently shocked by this surprise!  Here are a few photos of the decorations that I worked on this week.

The tissue paper balls were created by placing 8 sheets of tissue paper on top of each other. Then folding them accordion style, tying the middle with wire, rounding the corners, and then peeling back each layer.

I made the banner using my Cameo Silhouette and a .99 cent banner set cut file.

The paper lanterns were made with my Martha Stewart lantern cutting tool.  That tool makes it easy to produce lanterns really fast. I stapled the ends and added the butterflies.

The butterflies were images that I traced with the Silhouette Design America software. Then I cut them out and placed them on each lantern with a glue dot.

I welded the numbers 4 and 0 to make 40 and threaded them with gray ribbon to make the banner.

I spent most of my afternoons this week gearing up for this party. In the end, seeing the expression on the birthday girl's face was priceless.


  1. How kind of you to throw a party for a friend! You did a great job on the decorations, they are all beautiful. I like how you used white instead of normal black!

  2. WOW, your decorations are lovely. I bet it was a nice party!


I love reading your feedback! Thank you for sharing :)
