Hope you enjoyed this photo tutorial! Full instructions can be found over at my post on Craftsy.
Aren't those confetti dots the cutest? Such an easy way to add dotty party times to a blank wall. Simply punch out or cut out some circles in whichever colour scheme you're jamming on and tape up to the wall. Use painter's tape, so your paint won't peel off upon removal. I added some letters to the mix, too! Thanks to Jenny via Julep for the confetti wall inspiration!

I love a good black and white colour scheme for a party. It can look totally modern, or in this case: vintage modern! I used a black and white graphic vintage tablecloth from the 1970s (a hand-me-down from my mom) and for display, a cool metal letter E I got from The Land Of Nod.
Not only does a vintage-look metal letter look great for parties but you can hang it on your wall or tuck it onto a bookshelf once the party is over for eye-catching and forever-cool decor!
A vanilla buttercream frosted cake gets the sprinkles treatment.
Other simple ways to create unity in a simple color scheme without spending a load of cash? Cake flags made from fancifully designed Japanese washi tape in coordinating colors, and another lovely garland made from two dozen cupcake liners, splayed open and taped along a standard string.
Happy merry making, everyone!

The easiest mini party in the world.
I baked a single layer cake in a round pan and frosted it using the classic 1M tip.
Just fit your piping bag with the tip, fill it with buttercream frosting of your choice then swirl away on the top of your cake! A dash of colorful sprinkles and a cute little party flag and you are all set!
The garland was made using some super cute black and white gingham cupcake liners - but you could use any color or style your please. There are so many great ones out there! I just folded them in half and used double sided tape to adhere them together, strung along a simple string. I stuck it to the wall using some adorable Japanese washi tape (it's masking tape so it doesn't peel your wall paint away!) and it adds another simple cute element!
Done like dinner. A mini cake dinner.
Happy Friday, everyone!
