Little Prince Party Blog Hop

Homespun Elegance Prince Blog Hop

Well good morning everyone, and Welcome to the Little Prince Blog Hop!! I am so excited to be hosting my first ever Blog Hop, and have some VERY creative friends who will be sharing some fabulous creations for the little Prince's in their lives!  I hope that you all have a fabulous time! Please leave some Blogger Love on their designs that they have worked so hard on! :)  

Each stop along the way has fun and exciting giveaways to share with you all! To be entered all you need to do is Hop Today and Tomorrow on each stop along the way, follow and leave a comment! 

My giveaway for the Little Prince Blog Hop is the Provo Craft Happy Hauntings Cartridge!

This Cartridge is Perfect for Halloween!! It has the spppooooookkkkiiiieeest cuts!!

Just to give you an idea of the giveaways this weekend here are some previews!! And there are MORE that I don't have pics of!!!!

Now, on to my projects for Today! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for some more fun and a FABULOUS Surprise at the end of the hop!   (CLICK ON PICTURES TO ZOOM)

 All of my cuts are form the Elmo's Party Cartridge! The Face was cut from page 28 @ 5 inches with all layers.

The Straw toppers are cut from page 67 @ 2.5 inches

Isn't this Cupcake Stand Adorable!?!? I purchased the Stand, and wrapped in Yellow Card Stock Cut into 1.2 inch strips. The Happy Birthday is from Page 64 Layer 1 @ 1 inch True Dial Size. The Stars were cut from Red and Blue Card Stock @ .75 inches and 1 Inches - 7 of Each cut.Page 41 S> Key. The Orange Circles are Actually the layers in Elmos Nose :) Cut at .5 and .75 inches. I cut the Circles for the insides of the plates at 10 inches, 7.5 inches, and 6 (I measured them first, and used the Circle pre-programmed in the E-2. I folded them in quarters, only on the inside and Cut those portions out so they would fit over the stands in the middle.

If your child loves Elmoa as much as Mason does, you know his favorite things are his Goldfish and Crayons :) I found these Crayon Cupcake Wrappers at Michaels Impulse section for 48 cents! :) Score for me!I used Styrofoam balls to show the Toothpick Decorations that I made (these have been shown previously on my site - to view, click here) They were cut from the Same cut above on page 28 and 1 Inch and Taped to a toothpick.

Here is a little more of the Decor for Mason's Birthday Party this Weekend! Tomorrow actually! The Elmos Treat Boxes are filled with Elmo Stickers, Tattoos, Play-doh, Ice Cream Chapstick for the Girls, and Cars for the boys. I purchased Napkins, Blue and Red plates, Elmo Rings and Elmo Cups! Mason now says getting the mail is "Elmo Mail!! :)  I have found that for the Parties, Primary color tables cloths, napkins, cups, etc work well with Most boy Parties! Iron Man; Red and Yellow - Superman; Blue, Red and Yellow - Spiderman; Red and Blue and it goes on! Soooo one suggestion that I have for Mommies of a Little Prince, get Primary Colored Table Cloths, Bowls, Cups, Plates etc, then for your theme you will only really need one package of each of the themed design products. IE Red and Blue Desert Plates, and one package of Elmo plates - Red and Blue Napkins, and One Package of Elmo Napkins - This will save you on time and $$ Also, with the re-usable items - Bowls for Dips, Chips, the cupcake Display, etc I have a box labeled B-day (this holds everything until I need it.


Here is my Little Prince Helping mommy glue on the Circles to his Cupcake stand :)


Another GREAT buy is the Balloon weights - You can get these for less than a dollar at Wal-mart and if you get 2 of each color they will last you for years to come!! Well worth 6 bucks in my opinion! ( These are behind the Straw Decorations )

I wrapped his Gifts in Bright Yellow Wrapping Paper, and Tied off with a Red Bow - I made a few extra Elmo's and adhered them to the Packages. The Banner in the Background has also been shown here before. Please Check out how I made that here.

Thank you SO much for stopping by and celebrating with us! This one is for all of those little men in our lives.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

Also, there is no need to comment both times (on my blog) just once to be entered!! HAPPY HOPPING ALL!!

Here is the line-up for the Hop in case you get lost along the way. Please make sure to FOLLOW each of the designers blogs, AND comment on each of their projects, today and tomorrow to be entered in our giveaways!
