A purple birthday party on the fly

Since I decided around midnight on Wednesday to have a party for Sammi on the fly I needed a super easy theme. I had been toying with a rainbow party this year, but that required internet shopping and I was out of time, so purple it is. Sam loves her some purple.

The kids and I went out in the new snow on Thursday and Jack and I threw every purple thing we could find in the cart at Walmart and the party store.

 I had thrifted a purple tree a few weeks ago so I threw some birthday horns and hats on it. If I had more time I would have put a bunch of chipboard numbers 1-3 on it.
 No centerpiece and no time for flowers? Presents it is then.
 This is a premade bunting kit from the party store. You just stick stickers on the flags. Easy? Yes please!

 I trotted out the old tulle + lights on the mantle. Must get white wire white lights, mine are lost.

 Walmart had purple icing. Thank you walmart. Throw a whole jar of sprinkles on that lopsided thing and call it good.

And a piece of fabric from the fabric hoard becomes the worlds quickest table cover.
 Glittery cardstock becomes a quick party hat.

Happy Birthday Sammi girl!
