In the summertime, when the evenings cool off, I love taking things outdoors. When a friend wants a small celebration of their birthday, it’s a perfect time to pull a couple of tables and chairs out onto the lawn to celebrate. Twinkling lights, bright and cheery summer colors and good companionship make for a fantastic adult birthday celebrations, just like in this Summer Poppy Birthday party I created for Celebrations.com!I just love the bright colors and contrast of the reds, teal and yellow on the table in a mish-mash of patterns. I made the runner with the help of some hem tape I bought at the fabric store. A couple passes of the iron, and it was finished! I layered the runner on top of a length of fabric also purchased at the fabric store. It’s so easy to create a custom look this way.
The paper poppies were my favorite part. You can find the tutorial here on the Celebrations.com site. Floral tape, wire, and a bit of crepe paper are all you need to make these beauties for a poppy birthday party!
To go along with our dinner, we had some Whoa Momma! Pinapple cocktails…
…and pineapple strawberry salsa as an appetizer.
