feel like your fete is missing a little flair?
the small things are what often goes overlooked and without them your fete doesn't have that polished and pulled together look. don't fret! here are some suggestions
invitations- oh the most important item to not overlook, without this you would end up without any guests. no fun. the invitation is the perfect time to introduce your theme.
garland- if you have a custom one done, by all means go for the saying and look you want. here's a suggestion: go for a saying you can leave up long after the gathering has ended. for a baby shower instead of the typical "it's a girl!" go for "baby madison" so the parents can hang it in the nursery. it doubles as a decoration and then as a gift! what a bargain!
cupcake toppers- naked cupcakes? no thank you! have custom ones done to go with the theme
cupcake wrappers- why stick with the ugly ones you bake your cupcakes in? add a festive wrapper around the cupcakes that go with your theme. or even go for the eco friendly ones you can use over and over.
favors and bags- thank your guests for coming. don't feel like you need to spend a fortune on this. after all you asked them to come and have fun rather than for something that's such a drudgery. try to aim for the eco friendly fabric ones your guests will love to reuse!
pom poms to add a big s.p.l.a.s.h. of color! and... leave them up after the fete for a decor impact.
