Elena’s Orange You Glad Party!

It’s Party Time! Elena has another great entertaining idea, Orange You Glad? She shows us how to combine hand-crafted decorations with store-bought items to create a fun and festive orange-themed welcome home party! There’s a photo tutorial at the end to show how to create the fabulous citrusy party backdrop!
To announce the party theme, Elena created a cheerful sign using Quinn’s ABCs and Quinn’s Capital ABCs along with some selectively inked words from Plan on It: Vacation! The question mark is from Riley’s ABCs.

 You can easily personalize store-bought party favors by adding cute Stitched Leaves and Tiny Tags!
 The orange stripes on the purchased candy boxes are a perfect match for this orange-themed party! Fill them with orange candies to carry on the theme!
 More Tiny Tags with a Summertime Charm orange slice decorate the drink bottle while Stitched Leaves add a cute detail to the straws! The tiny “orange juice” is found in So Smooth.
Check out the photo tutorial below for tips on making the orange background! For the cake topper use a circle die cut and Flower Power leaves and blend on color using Lawn Fawn ink.
 To create a stencil use a Circle Stackables die to cut a large circle. Working on a large sheet of white poster paper use the circle stencil to sponge on Lawn Fawn ink in Carrot randomly across the paper.

 Add shading to the “oranges” by sponging on Pumpkin Spice ink.
 Create another stencil using the leaves from Flower Power and add green leaves with Freshly Cut Grass ink.
Use markers or colored pencils to add details and the stem!
We hope Elena has inspired you to do a little entertaining with her brilliant Orange You Glad party!
Thanks so much Elena for another fun and innovative party idea!

Yainea used the Color In Watercolor Twist pencils with a water brush to add color to the yummy images from Aloha, So Smooth, Happy Summer and Make Lemonade!
