Our client, fellow blogger and fellow Etsy seller, Erika, recently planned for her daughter Ellie a Great Skate party to celebrate her eighth birthday. Erika chose a local roller skating rink to throw the bash, and just looking at these pictures brings me back, way back...to 1980. I remember the disco lights and skating with friends in the middle of the rink, arms crossed, twirling around in circles. But, I digress.
On to the party!
The invitation! We used our Vintage Carnival / Circus Invitation, "Clownin' Around" and personalized it to match Ellie's party theme.
Erika, we love what your baker did with these treats (just look at the presentation with the pinwheels, and the cupcake toppers that spell out Ellie's name). The envelopes containing Ellie's invitation were personalized with a coordinating label sticker.
The girls worked up quite a thirst skating round and round! We designed coordinating water bottle labels for the drinks.
As a party favor, Ellie gave each guest a Pinwheel Hair Clip, how cute is that?!
Erika...the mom, the blogger, the crafter!
I wonder if the DJ played any Journey? (Carrie's flashback to 1980)
Ellie, her sisters and friends; what a cute crew!
Erika’s youngest daughter, Charlotte (nicknamed Tottie) was diagnosed with Pauci-JRA (less than 4 joints juvenille rheumatoid arthritis) when she turned two in October 2007. In her own words, “my girls love wearing headbands & so when I discovered that other people loved them too, I knew this was a way that I could give back to an organization that is searching & working on find the cause & cure for childhood arthritis.” Please stop by Erika’s Etsy shop, Totties Pretties. Proceeds of each purchase go to CARRA - a group of pediatric rheumatologist across the US & Canada doing clinical trials & research to find the cause & a cure for childhood arthritis.
