Mary Poppins Party: Decorations

The decorations for Isla's Mary Poppins party all centered on the invitation.  I purchased this set of Mary Poppins Digital Clip Art and used the character clip art to make the invitation and then everything else too.  I really had a lot of fun making all of this stuff!  And because most of the decor was just things I had made and printed, I didn't spend hardly any money on decorations at all.

I had this vision of hanging a black umbrella near the front of our driveway, along with this quote which is the opening words of the first song in the movie.  "Winds in the east, mist coming in, like something is brewin, about to begin."  Realistically, it was not possible to easily hang the umbrella, so I just ended up staking it in the ground like this.

For the record, I do not ever want to do an outdoor party again.  It was so windy!  I taped all of the centerpieces down to the tables, but still they kept trying to blow away.  I made these hats just using cheap hats from the party store and hot glued the flowers, ribbon and cherries onto the hats.  It's not quite EXACTLY like Mary Poppins, but close enough for me.

Here's the food table.  I was lucky to catch a moment of stillness when the fans weren't blowing around like crazy.

The girls' playhouse even got decorated with this 17 Cherry Tree Lane sign, which is the address of the Banks family in the movie.

I decorated the back of the house with some pictures of Isla and a few quotes from the movie.

The party!

Where did you find the red and white signage?

I made all the signs in Photoshop using a Mary Poppins digital clip art set that I bought on Etsy.

The redand white signs are so cute! I found the mary poppins clip art on etsy, just not the redand white. Is that background also included in the mary poppins clip. Art?

The red and white stripes is a digital scrapbook paper. I can't remember where I got it, but I'm sure you could find that on Etsy as well.

Hi! Everything came out beautifully! By any chance, do you have the file for the “Winds in the East” sign that you could share?
