I started my planning with a concept art sketch, which I drew with a trusty number two pencil and then scanned and colored in Photoshop.
I used variations of this image to make Thank You cards, invitations, and little stickers to put on the paper drink cups.
I used stretch elastic, felt, faux fur and poly-fill to make fox ear headbands for the kids (SO ADORABLE!) I also DIY'd the decorative pom-poms and had my dad and Hamilton construct some kids tables and benches. I wanted to make a birthday banner and "Pin the Tail on the Fox" game, but ran out of time. Ideas for those of you who don't wait until two days before the party to start your preparations!
All in all, I'd say it was a successful celebration. Of course, the birthday girl won't remember it, but that's what photo albums are for, right? ;)
