Kanaya's Birthday @ Apartment Therapy

Couple days ago, I got a surprise: an email from Dabney Frake said that Kanaya's birthday party would be on Apartment Therapy's Family channel on Friday!

I was so thrilled and almost cried.

Lionel's motorcycle birthday favors

Many birthdays happened last February. Kanaya's, my hubby's, our anniversary, and Lionel's.

Lionel is my dear friend Maria's son, who turned 4 last February. He's so crazy about motorcycle so it became the theme. So I did this for Maria:

Paper bag, coloring book and crayons. Ordered the paper bag from meihuazone (plain orange), and filled plastic with Maped crayons. I did some last minute printables for the paper bag stickers, coloring books and crayon labels.

Maria also ordered cupcakes (from our friend Lili) & chocolate lolly (from Maria's friend) with my printables on it.

So, here is the complete set:

Shabby chic accessories organizer

Before I say anything, I better apologize for being more consumed with my Instagram and nearly abandoning my blog. Yes Instagram is so much fun... Anyway follow my Instagram @moshethings and you'll find more of my recent activities there.

Back to the title... about 2 years ago, I went to Informa & Ace Hardware's big sale and found a broken bathroom vanity mirror. The mirror has gone and only the vanity frame was left, and I bought it for IDR 100,000.- (about US$10). Not long ago, after keeping it for 2 years,  I turned it into this:

It became Kanaya's accessories organizer. To store her necklaces, bracelets, & hair bows. Not bad considering it looked like this before:

I told my workshop to add wire mesh on the door & at the back panel, painted it white and it turned into a shabby chic piece. I love restoring...

Ezra's construction birthday party

Yellow, orange, black & grey were the color scheme for Ezra's 4th birthday party last July. There's barely anything soft and cute in this construction party.

This is the dessert table...

The cake is by my sweet neighbor Astrid from Cupcake Rocks. The topper is CAT toy truck.

The cupcakes were offcourse by DapurQ: chocolate cupcakes and my favorite red velvet cupcakes with yellow cream cheese. The construction sign for the topper is edible printing. I used my hubby's tool box to display the cupcakes... It turned out so cool... :)

The tool & truck cookies were also by DapurQ. I bought this tools shape cookie cutter from Etsy and sent it to Mba Riani DapurQ.

I wrapped chocolate Ultra milk boxes with printables said "FUEL". The parents and kids were quite amazed by them. The orange metal toolbox is my hubby's vintage by Hafele.

The favors were tool boxes that my workshop made out of leftover plywood and painted grey. Inside were SIKU construction diecast, Fun Doh plasticine, and tool shape cookie.

The backdrop for games and photo booth was a very simple panel made off painted black plywood and decorated with construction tapes.

Mba Ira from Kertas Krep helped me providing MC for this party. He was funny and the kids loved him.

I almost forget to mention about the kids costume. For Ezra, I bought the vest from ELC, while for the other kids, I actually made them out of bright orange and grey nylon fabric I bought from Tanah Abang. I copy the pattern from the ELC vest (modified it a bit). I might do some tutorial for this vest (I can't promise though). For the construction helmet, I bought them from eBay. The kids were so excited with their costume (I even saw one of the kids - our neighbor - wearing it the next day playing in his frontyard).

If you see some interesting props and custom signs in this party, most of them were made by me and my hubby out of leftover materials from our workshop. It was a great feeling to create a great party with eco-friendly mind...

Happy birthday my little Ezra...
