Vintage Sheet Birthday

 
 
My niece just turned 11. We had a little sleepover party with some of her bffs. When I think "slumber," I think sheets. So . . . all the decorations were inspired by vintage sheets.
 
The Invitation
 
I went into a little more detail here, but basically it is a cardstock tag with a mini pillow and pillowcase.
 
 
 The Party Favor
 
We bought white pillowcases, journals, and flip flops for the girls to decorate. Additionally, I made eye masks for each girl. I used this awesome pattern and tutorial.
 
 
 Table Runner
 
 Plan "A" was a tacky pink plastic table cover. Bo-ring. So, I made a table runner to go the length of the dining room table.
 
 Breakfast
 The girls loved pancakes, juice, bacon, and fresh fruit in the morning.
 

 
 
The Bunting
 
 I used the pink striped flannel from the mini pillows and more vintage sheet awesomeness to make a party bunting. It was a day-before-the-party project so when I figured out I didn't have binding or time to make scratch binding. Luckily I had pink grosgrain ribbon the exact length I needed.
 
 
The Birthday Girl
Yep, she's a silly 11 year-old. She wanted to pose with her eye mask. No one really got a lot of sleep at the party but they were surrounded by cozy and cute sheets.
 
 

 
Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I have like 3 posts in the works right now. Stay tuned. :)
