Yesterday, I told you that I was working on a blog series about our twin boys’ Dr. Seuss first birthday party. I mentioned that I would be sharing where I got things for the party or how I made things for the party.
With out further ado, this morning I want to share with you how I put together the “welcome table” for the party. To start with, I didn’t actually use a table. I happened to have a corner shelf in our loft that usually has a floral arrangement on it. For the party, I put the floral arrangement in a closet and used the corner shelf as our welcome table.
I wanted to display the boys' party invitation on the welcome table, so I placed an invitation in Dr. Seuss' lap. Yesterday, I shared that I ordered the invitations from this Etsy shop.
I also purchased a printable PDF file of the adorable sign for the guest book. I printed the sign on my home computer and put it in a black frame from the Dollar Tree.
I purchased the printable sign from this Etsy shop for $1.
|I used the Happy Birthday To You book by Dr Seuss as the birthday guestbook. All of the guests wrote birthday messages to the boys on various pages throughout the book. |
When I couldn't find this book at my local thrift stores or Half Priced Books, I ordered a gently used copy of the book off of Amazon for $7.
|As people came up the stairs to the party, I had a simple welcome sign that I made on the computer using free clip art.|
|At the bottom of the stairs was a balloon purchased from Party City and a Seussville sign pointing in the direction of the the party.|
