The PARTY That Etsy Built: Ruby Mae’s Pink & Gold “Beauty Queen” Themed Birthday Party!

c600x420A few months ago, we shared with you our new home and The House That Etsy Built Project. Thanks to it’s success, and the hands of more incredible Etsy Shop owners, we bring you our second Etsy Built project, The PARTY That Etsy Built!

Our sweet Ruby Mae just turned two, and since she was born we’ve called her “Beauty Queen”. It seemed only fitting to use the nickname as inspiration for her Etsy Built birthday party. Not unlike Ruby, the day was full of drama. I woke up early that morning to set up, and noticed immediately that it was overcast, humid and WINDY. As in, it took me 45 minutes to attempt to get a tablecloth onto a table. As in, an additional 45 minutes hanging Pom Wheels on the fence only to have them nearly blow away.

I was trying my best to stay calm. As calm as a Type-A Party Planner can stay. I turned to go get more duct tape from inside when my husband Michael said to me, “I hate to be the one to tell you this, but…ITS RAINING.” That couldn’t possibly be true, since its the end of June….since it’s SUMMER…but it was. I quickly yelled to grab the tissue decor and RUN!!

So with only a few hours before our amazing photographer (Ryan Doyle) would arrive we literally ripped our Etsy Built house apart, attempting to make as much room for the party as possible. Eventually, we figured things out and we had a blast.

Sometimes the best things arise out of confusion! As with all of my children’s parties, its no surprise that its ALL about the outfit. A special thank you to Darah at Taelir Designs whom custom made Ruby’s dress based on my undoubtedly confusing ideas, making a dress beyond our wildest dreams!
