Last month, we had a family celebration! I helped my mom with the decorations for the party that she and my dad threw, which had a music theme.
I have a (currently small) board at Pinterest where I’ve been stashing party ideas for the future, so I was excited to look it over for inspiration. I also had a look at my Garlands and Banners board, because what’s a party without at least one garland? 😉
Here’s what we came up with. We had garlands hanging from the chandeliers over the two tables:
Inspired by THIS pin, my awesome mom made some circle garland out of paper printed with music.
For another string of garland, she added in some black and red solid papers…
In the dining room, my mom left the table mostly empty so that guests could sit, eat, and talk together. She used some music-printed fabric to make a simple tablecloth, and together we made the pièce de résistance (well, at least, in my opinion!) out of rosettes to hang on the front of the china cabinet.
We used more music-printed paper, as well as black cardstock (and a TON of hot glue!).
Here’s a view of the dining room as a whole:
I think it looked pretty festive!
Among the many other delicious foods we had (which I did not provide), I made and brought sugar cookies in the shape of music notes and G-clefs (thanks, A, for lending me your cookie cutters!). I have realized that I am a terrible cookie-icer (I tried, I really did!), so I need some help in that department. I’m hoping A will teach me! But regardless of how they looked, they tasted great!
