Fancy Frugal Life: Dora Sillouettes Tutorial & Girly Glam Dora Party

Dora Sillouettes Tutorial & Girly Glam Dora Party

Hooray this Dora Girly Glam party turned out so darling! I spent many hours creating the details for my daughter's 3rd party and it was so fun to see her having a blast!! This post is to show you how it all turned out and to share how I made these Dora sillouettes. I feel like they made the arrangement so modern and oh so chic!

I picked up a pack of these great Dora wall decals for $7.00 at Target and spray painted them purple. They come right on and off so they are super easy to work with! I placed them on some foam board covered with cute scrapbook paper and embellished the edge with the fluffy boa stuff. The back two are placed on a few poka dot $0.50 place mats I found on Easter clearance from Fry's grocery store. I tied together with matching ribbon. Super easy and cute!

Smucker's Uncrustables fit right in with the purple and white! I found the perfect carrier at Goodwill for $1,99, sprayed it white and added ribbon and tulle.

You can read my 2 previous posts on how I made other details here and here.

Fry's did a great job on the simple cupcakes! They were way yummy whipped topping ones :) And yes that's one of my Goodwill dessert stands in action!

Tissue poms are always a must!!

Yep those are purple Peeps on Easter clearance!!

Grandma Rita made this adorable tutu!

I made this cute outdoor area by decorating our toddler table and making very quick chair slipcovers, and table cloth by cutting up some old matching sheets. My daughter wouldn't wear her tutu so I had it on one of the chairs! This is where we sang happy birthday :)

Everyone had a fantastic time because of my decorations!! It had nothing to do with this.....

Ha, well maybe a little!

Hope you enjoyed the party Miss Lily Jane..your mom sure loves you!

A "dora" ble! Sorry I couldn't help it :) I love the invites. I think a good party always starts with a special invite, but I also love the subway art and the sillouettes.
Thanks for linking up- I love it all!
