by Lynn Lilly, Feb 26 2017

We are so excited to launch a new series, Shop My Party!! Every few weeks we are going to launch a new party theme and feature it across multiple posts making it easy for your to shop all of our favorite party decorations, favors, glassware and get yummy recipes and sweet crafts! We are kicking off our first Shop My Party with a celebration for Craft Box Girls 3rd birthday! This birthday is truly a special one as I have lived every second of the crazy adventure and been able to follow my dreams because you have supported and been right beside our team! 

Last week we had a confetti filled office birthday party to prep for our birthday celebration with Swoozies in Atlanta on March 4, 2017. If you live in Atlanta we would love for you to join us for sweets, mimosas, crafts, giveaways and discounted shopping. Check out all the details on our facebook event page! We pulled together all of our favorite decorations, partyware, sweet treats, cocktails and more! There was way too much confetti for one post so we split it up into three! Check out our other two posts featuring sweet treats and the perfect birthyay decor galore! Each post including this one is filled with some fun outtake shots of our team getting goofy!

Every party needs a signature cocktail and ours is a Mandarin Bubbly served in these super cute Confetti BirthYAY flutes. To top off these sparkly cocktails we discovered foil straws.... WHAT... I know they are AMAZING! 

Mandarin Bubbly:

Directions to make Mandarin Simple Syrup:

  1. Take 5-6 mandarins, peel them and place in a small sauce pot. 
  2. Add 1/2 cup of sugar
  3. Add 2 cups of water
  4. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.
  5. Mash the mandarin pieces with a muddler
  6. Bring to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  7. Strain separating the mandarin and the simple syrup. 
  8. Refrigerate simple syrup for up to 2 weeks in a glass container.

To make the bubbly:

Pour a tablespoon in each flute. Add a few pieces of mandarins and top with champagne! 

Get creative with displaying your straws. We put ours in the Confetti Happy Birthday Stemless Wine Glasses!

Foil Straws

And of course, don't forget the Happy Birthday Cocktail Napkins
