I love birthdays and planning events. It is truly one of my passions. This year me and my friends all turn 25. Many don’t consider this a milestone birthday, but I do. I mean I thought my teenage years were strange. Well being in your 20’s is an emotionally roller coaster. And you need a support system and strong well to keep you pushing through. My friends and I have been through a lot and have accomplished so much together and individually. So I came up with the great idea for us to plan each other’s 25th birthday celebration. I’m creative one in the group so I’ve been leading this mission (plus it was my idea).
Last month I planned a birthday event for one of my girls. We all got together for brunch and wine tasting. It was really nice! The day was filled with good conversations, laughs and cries, great wine and most importantly friendship. To end the day, I wanted to leave the girls with something special to “Remember the Time”. So I came up with this idea to make picture frames, as party favors.
I took a visit to Michael’s craft store to pick up some acrylic paint, glitter, modge podge, and wooden picture frames (one larger than the other). I used the color blue because that’s the birthday girl’s favorite color. First, I took the larger frame and painted it completely blue. Next, I coated the smaller frame with modge podge and sprinkled silver glitter all over it. Then, I let both frames lay flat on a sheet of newspaper to dry over night. The next day, I used a hot glue gun (and glue gun sticks) to glue the smaller frame on top of the larger frame to make this masterpiece (pictured on left).
This made the day even more special. We all took pictures with the birthday girl and everyone got a Frame Party Favor to “Remember the Time”.
Try it for your next event and let me know how it turns out, See you Friday!
