Let’s face it, it’s summer! Although I do not have kids of my own I know it can sometimes be a challenge to keep them entertained. Today I have a solution for you; a neon and neutral themed kids party! Who says it has to be someones birthday to have a party. This is bright, fun, DIY and very budget friendly. Start by printing the party information on craft paper and sending it to friends in a neon envelope. Next, make this fun neon chandelier to hang in the house along with cut out words. I love using craft paper to wrap around tall cylinders and cover with neon tape for accents. Group carnations and ranunculus together for your centerpiece and add a neon painted number to the table to complete your place setting. This new trend of dipping flatware into paint is awesome for your place setting as well. (This video clip we posted last week from the Martha Stewart show, featuring Bryan Rafanelli, shows you how to DIY dipped flatware.) Pull those mason jars out of grandma’s cabinet, tie a fun neon string around then and complete with a paper straw. To keep the kids busy give them some cardboard, neon tape and markers and let them make their own neon town. Serve bright snacks like pink lemonade with bananas and oranges, then throw in a brightly iced cupcake for fun! Wha-lah your party is ready to throw! Happy Summer!
