Decorate to Celebrate Beach Party!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! It's time for another super-fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For Challenge #26, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration or party supply for a BEACH PARTY!! Let's celebrate everything wonderful about surf, sand and sunshine (my favorites!!) with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my Beach Party, I created a lei, beach ball votive holder and splashtastic party invitation.


The lei was created with flowers from Spellbinders Daisy Flower Toppers dies and DCWV cardstock. I punched holes through the centers of the flowers and used heavy duty brads to anchor the flowers to stretch cord. The center circles are from a small punch and I ran them through the Xyron and glittered them.


The tag is a Tim Holtz die, glittered and stamped with K Andrew Designs "aloha" from the Splashtastic Summer stamp set.


The beach ball votive holder was constructed with one inch strips of paper, hole-punched on the top and bottom, and then woven together and secured at the ends with brads.


The base of the invitation is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle, with a Grand Rectangle on top, embossed with the Plum Blossoms embossing folder. The surfboards are from Spellbinders Surf's Up set, with the top sanded to bring out the design (and make it look like the surfboards are well-used ;) The flowers are Spellbinders Daisy Flower Toppers, with glittered centers to match the lei.


"Beach Party" is from Base Camp, cut at 1". The tag is from Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants. "Splashtastic" is also from K Andrew Designs Splashtastic Summer stamp set:

Oooooh, you are masterful as ever at setting a party scene, my sweet friend! Every component is so vibrant and beachy! The beach ball votive holder is so unique and I adore those flowers for the lei! I totally want to just hold those lovely blooms. :o) I got excited when I saw your invite because I just love those surfboards. I'm happy to see you use them so flawlessly again. The distressing is amazing. I also love how you coordinated the flowers back to the lei. :o) A detail is never, ever missed with you. Fantastic projects as always, my dear friend! I hope you have a beautiful Thursday!

Hugs and blessings!
