Happy Monday loves! Is the weekend really over? Mine went by in a wink!
I had fun planning and styling a Nerdy 30 party for a few of my friends this past Saturday. We had a little get together at a friend's house, then had a rented school bus pick us up and take us to a skating rink! It was super fun, but word to the wise... Alcohol and skating may not be the smartest combination. We did have one injury that resulted in a fractured wrist :/ Maybe next time we can provide wrist, knee and elbow pads...and helmets...safety first!
On the bright side, everyone looked super nerdy and enjoyed my little decor accents...
I had a lot of fun crafting for the party! The cupcake toppers are from this etsy shop. They sent me the template, so all I had to do was print and cut out and glue to the sticks. I backed them with light blue colored card stock for a little extra support and so they would keep their shape.
The straws were also from etsy. I made the flags by printing the "Nerdy 30" on computer paper and used a paper cutter to cut our each flag. I used a double sided tape roller to adhere the flags to the straws and cut out little triangles on the ends of each for a more "flag" look.
This is something I wanted to practice because I'm hoping to do something similar for my wedding with gold and white striped straws. More on that in the near future :)
I also made little test tub shots with vodka and brightly colored sparkling juice...
Also got these paper nerd glasses from this etsy shop. Just had to glue them to the sticks!
Despite the injury, I think everyone had a great time!
I'm sad it's over, but ready to tackle my next few event projects!
How was your weekend? Did you watch the Oscars? Who was your "best dressed"? Mine was Adele...I'm biased though bc I love her so much! Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence...She's awesome!
