DIY Party Decorations

Very Hungry Caterpillar Party




For my son's first birthday we had a Very Hungry Caterpillar Party.

These decorations would be perfect for that but you can also use them for tons of different parties. 
Just choose your own colours.


DIY POP-HOLDER

Very Hungry Caterpillar Party

A "pop holder" is really easy to make and is a cute way to display your lolly pops, cake pops and anything else you can think of on a stick :)

Here is how we made ours:


Materials: Foam block (we used flower foam this time as I already had it at home and they were wrapped sweets and no food was touching it.. but to make another, I'd use a normal foam block), Glue, Bento grass dividers (you can buy them on ebay very inexpensively)



Starting at the top, put a layer of grass dividers around your foam block. Once you have gone all the way around, start a new layer, slightly lower down so that it overlaps the top layer and so on until it is covered.



On top I stuck down some more of the grass dividers, leaving gaps for the pop sticks to push easily into

Poke in your pops and you're ready to go.




Paper Lantern Table Display/Paper Lantern Caterpillar

Materials: Paper lanterns (can be bought cheaply on ebay or at many discount variety shops), Fishing line, Hooks (I used Command Clear Decorating Clips).


This was such a simple yet effective way to frame our cake and you could do the same for any other party using different coloured lanterns (without the eyes etc lol)

We popped some stick-on wall hooks on the ceiling. Tied fishing line to the paper lanterns and then hung them on the hooks at the desired lengths.

Total cost of lantern caterpillar was $12. 
(I already had the other stuff at home so only had to purchase the lanterns)



Twisted Streamer Wall

Behind our table we used a simple streamer wall in the party colours.
Materials: Streamers, sticky tape.

Cut all your streamers to the right length. Stick the streamer at the top, twist and the stick at the bottom.
Repeat! :)

These would look fabulous in all kinds of colours and only cost about $4 in total.




Balloon Door-frame/ Balloon Caterpillar

Want something even more basic? Try trimming your door frames with balloons stuck around them. We made a quick little caterpillar but you could use any colours you like.
These are just stuck to the wall with stickytape. Quick and easy!

Happy creating,
Debs :)

  12. بازاریابی و فروش به عنوان دو عملکرد به هم پیوسته مطرح می شود. هر کدام از این عناصر با عملکرد عنصر دیگر تکمیل خواهد شد. بنابراین می توان گفت این دو با یکدیگر هم پوشانی دارند و در راستای هم حرکت می کنند. البته گاهی این هم پوشانی به شکل ناقص انجام می شود. در این صورت باید علت را در مدیریت ضعیف بررسی نمود
