Ice Skating Birthday Party

24 January 2013



We are in the middle of planning our next winter birthday party and want to spread a little birthday  happiness to you, too. You might recognize the ice skating pompoms (here)?  Skating into 8 was great!” We’re happy to let you glide through a few photos from this party. Oh, it was fun!


As soon as the theme was chosen, I began the quest for ice skate pom poms and my head began to whirl with ideas. We used pom poms to embellish everything from pom pom bubble gum necklaces, pom pom hot chocolate toppers, right down to polka dot cake. (I held my breath that the idea would work and we were so pleased!)

Above the table hung pink, purple and white tissue paper pompoms. The table was set with real china and ice skate tagged gift bags that designating seating. The center of the table was decorated with a trail
of pink and white meringues and napkin rings were made of pompoms which could be later used as pony tail holders.


I customized the invitations, thanks you notes and coloring pages all based on ice skating, complete with a figure 8. I’ve been just thrilled with all of the requests for party invitations (here) and (here) and for the privilege of sharing your birthday stories. Thank you so much, readers. Yes, I do custom work. I am also working on a simple series of cards (print and downloadable) that I hope to make available soon. I love to hear from you and don’t hesitate contacting me regarding invitations (at willowtweet (at) or to just to share birthday stories here. Your stories really make my day.( … “F” Vancouver and “W” from Houston, I hope your days were full of fantastic memories!)

When I saw One Charming Party’s  bubble gum necklaces, I thought it was the perfect match. We made color coordinated necklaces for all of the guests as take home presents. (This was a labor of love: Sources for single colored gum balls don’t exist in Sweden. The kids were stunned when I handed them over 100+ coins to start filling the bubble gum machine at our local grocery store, in order to get our pink, purple and white gum balls.)Wishes for winter inspiration!
