Smiley Face. Happy Face Party Invitations and Stamps
Choosing your invitation is the equivalent of the title of a paper … it sets the tone for the entire party!
Smiley Face. Happy Face Party Table Linens
Be Happy! With this theme your options are limitless. Your final decision should be based on two factors: the physical characteristics of the event room and your daughter’s personal style.
If you are hosting a simple and low key luncheon you might consider yellow and white check linens. Even simpler? Stick to yellow or black cloths with yellow check napkins. If you want to add some punch with lots of color, consider Warhol Roses as your primary linen, yellow lamour as your coordinating linen and chair covers, and then accent with black chair ties. Be sure to also check out the Black & White Pucci Linen. Again, use yellow lamour as your coordinating linen.
Just a note on chair covers: chair covers may not be necessary if the chairs supplied are fairly neutral and in ok condition. In fact, I tend to not use chair covers at any of my personal parties. Having said that, if your budget permits, the overall look of certain rooms is enhanced if chair pads are used. Choose one of your accent colors.
Or even better, place a smiley face t-shirt over each chair with the design facing outward. Pair with a yellow and white checked tablecloth for a great, happy look.
The t-shirts can double as room decor and party favors. There is a huge selection of shirts at Zazzle.
Don’t forget to include your place card table, your gift table, buffet tables, and any ceremonial tables when determining your linen count. Also, if you chose to use more ornate linens, do not use them for the cocktail hour; they will have a greater impact as your guests enter the dining room.
Smiley Face. Happy Face Party Centerpieces
Smiles are guaranteed when this bright yellow happy faced mug carrying a cheerful bouquet of daisies and roses . Another option is to use three of these smiley faces down the center of a long table. Fill with a few white and yellow daisies or white daisies and yellow roses.
If your party room is particularly drab, or has high ceilings, or just needs a little more to fill it in, consider flying these smiley face balloons from your centerpieces. Be sure to make them high enough to serve their purpose and to not block your guests' table views.
Add some cute smiley dolls or wind up toys to your table.
