Oh, the big ten. T-E-N. You know, the two digit age that most parents dread to admit that their baby is no longer a baby – but a tween? 10! She wasn’t really interested in having cartoon themed birthday parties, but still wanted a pretty and cute birthday theme! She picked out the colors and somehow… it turned out great!
Blush pink, coral, gold, and mint are so pretty together! The table spread is easy to put together once we decided on colors. Believe me… before the colors, I was so out of my mind trying to find a good theme for her!
When we were at Party City, we came across a birthday banner that had her color scheme AND it had cute cats on it. That was when it was complete and she LOVES the cats within her theme. For the cake, I went to Safeway and the baker made her a super adorable cake! I love the flower crown on the cat!
FUN TIP: Buy a cake holder hehe, it’s AMAZING. I can’t believe it took me this long to get it!
I cannot stress how much balloons add to the decorations! They’re affordable and add so much more fun. Party city always has everything I need to complete the theme.
I don’t like to spend a lot of money on decorations because well, with three kids… it can get costly. That’s when I turn to DIY! YAY! Okay, okay… I know that DIY can take so much longer than just buying but:
- You pick your own colors!
- You choose size, design, and everything!
- It’s fun (maybe)
- In the end of it all, YOU DID THIS MAMA!
I visited local craft stores to find the base board, flowers, and the TEN letters. I spray painted the letters and the baseboard, then hot glued the flower pieces!
COLOR COORDINATED MASON JARS
The other DIY I did was these mason jars. I can’t believe how easy it was to do this. Yes, it took time and I mean a lot of time, but was very simple. I used the same spray paint for the gold jars which is Krylon Metallic Spray Paint but for the other one, I used Folkart Sunset Rose chalk paint. After it was finished, I used a clear wax to seal it all! Oh of course, you’ve GOT to tie some twine to make it look extra pretty.
You can’t forget the deserts, cupcakes are the easiest to incorporate the colors. The four set white serving plates that you see here makes everything look just so clean and presentable. I found these at amazon at such a good price because in my local store it was so expensive just for one!
Last but not least, the party favors are fairly simple as well. I learned throughout the years that kids don’t really care to have so many things in these bags. Pick one or two items that you know they will like and done!
These see through plastic bags with the gold bow is so cute, but so elegant as well. These were found at the Party City wedding favors area! The pink tags that says “With Love and Thanks” were found at the baby shower area, isn’t that great? Don’t stick to one aisle marked for birthdays!
My big girl loved the outcome of her birthday party and had so much fun! I hope this 10th birthday party decoration ideas helped you find some inspiration. I know that it can be tough to watch your little girl grow up so quickly, but she will hold on to these memories dear to her heart! Thank you for visiting my blog and until next time!
