Inspired by dandelions on an open field, with a color scheme of aqua and white, I created a whimsical make a wish birthday party for my daughter's 9th Birthday Party - Dandelions were the focus of this party with lots of DIY crafts and decorations.
Dandelion Inspired Make a Wish Birthday Party - DIY Décor and StylingI wanted to create a magical escape for the girls to enjoy their treats, make crafts and just simply enjoy each other's company. Using white fabric strips, fishing line and the trees as poles, I made a marquee in the back yard where I set up a table on the grass and used pillows as chairs. I decorated the marquee with DIY poms and paper lanterns.
DIY Make a Wish Wood Sign: I used different sizes and fonts of letter stencils to create the Wish sign.

I used photo boxes with dandelion print on them to display the dandelion marshmallows and cake pops. I wanted to create the feeling that they were in a real dandelion field.
DIY dandelions displayed on the dessert table: Simply hot glue white feathers to a round styrofoam and glue the foam into a floral wire.
