This is quite possibly the simplest, most bang for your buck project we've ever done here on SMP. And the girls at Audrey's party LOVED them. A bamboo skewer, some hula skirts and a bit of green painters tape and voila. A magic wand that actually makes little girls feel like they are fairy princesses. A few of the girls actually begged me to take them home.

And can you really blame us? The results are just so stinking cute that we simply couldn't help ourselves. These coasters were great for our party, but they also add that little...

DIY Papel Picado Bunting

For me, the prettiest part of our Mexican Fiesta was the Papel Picado bunting. It floated in the breeze and totally set the tone for our easy, effortless, totally inviting dinner.

Next up in the building blocks for our aaaaadorable Neon Party Theme is this oh-so-simple lucite tray. I am a HUGE fan of the lucite tray.

Neon, DIY Martini Glasses

Okay, the first DIY (actually all of the DIY's) for today's celebration is about as easy as boiling water.
