Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

Hey, everyone! Today we are excited to share with you our decor and party favors for our fifteen-year-old sister's surprise birthday party! We hope you like some of these ideas and give them a try if you throw your one fairytale inspired party! 

Since the theme of the party is the TV show Once Upon a Time, we decided to make some signs that point the guests to places in the show, like Storybrooke. Take a look at all the signs we made (which we simply printed off the computer in fun fonts and colors, and then used stamped with "swirly stamps" to add that little something extra special!). 

In the living room, we decided to put a basket (inspired by Little Red Riding Hood) full of fairytale books. Well, actually, we ended up throwing in a few DVD's because we didn't have enough fairytale books, but you get the idea. It made very cute decor, and it only took a few minutes to throw together!

Having our purple "mess-containing tablecloth" from The Dollar Tree helped add a splash of color! And of course, having the prize basket in the center of the table added a nice touch, too. (We talked about the prize basket in Post 1, if you are interested). 
Let's chat about the favors... We sent each girl home with a cute bag containing a nail polish, a bundle of Pixi Stix, Rolos, Hershey's Kisses, and gum--in addition to the prizes, of course! As you can see, each item has a cute tag to tie it into the theme of the party.

Well, that wraps up this post! Thanks for reading, and check back next week for our fourth and final party post! Have a great day! :)

Love, the Sisters of Hot Glue & Sparkle,
