Chinese New Year party inspiration + {FREE} printables - LAURA'S little PARTY

Chinese New Year party inspiration + {FREE} printables

January 20, 2014

Have you ever celebrated Chinese New Year? 
Aside from witnessing a beautiful parade in Chinatown,
this will be our first official celebration. 

In honor of the year of the horse, I styled a small Chinese New Year party!
I picked up a few things to help celebrate.
I bought fortune cookies, and cupcakes, and also
 picked up Chinese food from our favorite restaurant.

I gathered decorations that I had around the house,
spray painted trays, and even a couple toy horses.
Kiley, from Made by a Princess, created the perfect mini printable kit that 
was perfect for our small, family gathering!

I added her printables to red envelopes, and fortune cookies,

The party horns were left over from past birthday parties.
I added a printable straw flag to each one, and displayed them on a gold tray.

To make things a little more festive, I spray painted fortune cookies with gold edible
color spray from Wilton. It was super easy to use, and added a fun element!
I then added the cookies to the tops of the cupcakes, along with star picks from Target.

I added more printables to red paper lanterns, chopsticks, mini take-out boxes,
and tissue fans. 

I hope I helped by giving you a little party inspiration to throw your own celebration! 
You can find the {FREE} printable kit in this post.
It was so fun learning about the traditions of Chinese New Year.
And now, my family looks forward to celebrating it every year!
