The wreath was a vine wreath covered in some chic 80's zebra print I found in a fabric stash and topped with floral fans with inserts from some tapes I bought at goodwill attached to them to let everyone know they were here to party!
Big BRIGHT poms surrounded the light with paper decorations in between spelling A-V-A . This topped the gift and to go goodie bag table.
We tried to keep the party outside since the weather was nice and dropped food is easier to clean up outside! We made a sign to put behind the beverage station that hosted homemade lemonade and some stronger beverages for the bigger "girls"
I decorated plastic bins from the dollar tree with parts of casette tape inserts and filled them with bubble wand microphones jazzed up with zebra ribbon and cut outs of the original mtv and vh1 logos...makes me want to break into singing Video Killed the Radio Star! I will spare you though! Threw in some snazzy 80's crochet gloves and chocolate covered pretzels!
After one failed attempt to make this tape vase I figured out the best way to attach them together is with a high temp glue gun and overlap the edges. I lined it with a cardstock paper to give it some extra support. Then I placed a cup with flowers inside. viola..a motley crue tape vase
The cassette tape cases from the tapes used in the vase came in handy to make food labels. I printed out tape pictures and labeled them using 80's songs. Records glued to multicolored vases made great food servers for mini hot dogs and pretzel knots
