Real Party: The Dynamic Duo Tied the Knot Congrats Party

Remember the lovely couple that got married at VooDoo Too!? We wanted to all get together a week after the wedding and celebrate the union. We decided to have a casual get together with a bit of a comic book theme. I wanted bright colors and lots of quote bubbles throughout the party. We also really wanted to play off all of the bright colors from the wedding and include the wedding photos that I shot.

I only used items that I found in my own house to create the party. We used post-it notes, scrap paper, yellow sticker paper and my printer for most of the DIY decorations. Below are some of the photos from the party. Enjoy!

The decor was all DIY from items that I could find around the apartment. My favorite part of the party was the post-it wall background for the food table. Using a tutorial found on-line I created four bright colored hearts from post-it notes alone. (The tutorial was from Mental Hygiene and was for something much more complicated then what I did!)

I also decorated with good old fashioned paper chains that I created with scrap paper and glue. I made the chains with cardstock and hot glue to make them more sturdy (they are now hanging above my bed as a type of free-form art piece!)

The banner was made using the font “SF Slapstick Comic” found on

Dessert was mini cupcakes decorated in an array of neon colored frosting and comic-style cupcake picks. They looked adorable stacked up on my homemade cakestands.

The bar was decorated with photos from the wedding along with Comic-style signs. I used cardstock to create frames for the photos and gave the framed photos as favors to guests.

And, the really give the party a bit of fun I added silly signs throughout the party in quote bubbles to help guide guests around the food table.
