I am so awesome at planning a 3 year old’s birthday party… No. No. No, I’m not. Join me to relive the slow and painful demise of any party planning skills I ever had. Oh, and we could make a poufy, tulle garland together, too, while we laugh at my lackluster party planning skills. Good times.

Tulle Ball Gown Party Garland

Picture this: we were all prepared to have a pom pom themed, 3rd birthday party. Weeks in advance, we had planned (and completed) a fun pom pom party game suitable for 3 year olds, a pom pom centerpiece, a pom pom garland, and even a pom pom craft for the kids. The entire party was decorated with creations made (mostly) by our soon-to-be 3 year old. {insert congratulatory self back pat here} I felt like


Now, picture this: a couple days before the party, the little one changes her mind and requests a FROZEN themed party. Uuuuuuuuuv course she did. She was so polite, using those kind words (puh-leeze), and even offered up different uses for the pom pom garland and crafts she had made.

Thus began my inner-mommy-struggle… Do I let her change her mind? Do I not? Should it be a lesson? Should I just stop over thinking it? Ugh. I caved.

Mommy guilt set aside for the moment, I chose to let her change her mind. Every young girl who lives in Seattle apparently has a birthday in December, and also appears to have requested a FROZEN themed birthday party. You can imagine the purchasable party supplies were pretty picked over. Alliteration for the win.

Anyway, I tried party stores, craft stores, and even Target, but there wasn’t a garland or bunting in sight. The little one was looking a bit glum because she wanted a “fluffy, princess garland” and we couldn’t find one. What to do? We raided our craft supplies and made a princess ball gown style tulle garland in about 15 minutes.

Perhaps I was premature to take back that back pat?


  • Tulle (scraps or rolls) – I used a 6″ tulle roll and scraps from our Anna dress up apron and our Elsa dress up apron.
  • Pipe cleaners – Raid your child’s stash because it’s their party and they can contribute 8 of their 1,232 pipe cleaners to the cause. Word.
  • String, twine, or random silver garland you have had for 15 years and normally use on your mini artificial Christmas tree outside. The bugs would all be gone by now after having been stored for a year. Right?


Cut 14 -ish inch strips (just kind of wing it if some of your scraps are between 10 and 14 inches). It’s a tulle garland, so it’s wickedly forgiving if you short a sheet or two.

Run around searching for, and negotiate the return of, the strips of tulle your daughter has commandeered for her newest art installation. Stack between 4 and 6 strips on top of each other.

Grab the stacked tulle in the center and twist out your frustrations for having to plan a party during the busy holiday season with next-to-no purchasable party supplies. Twist, twist, twist. Maybe growl a little bit for effect (and stress release).

Create a loop by aligning the ends of the tulle and secure with half a pipe cleaner. You might have to go searching for these because they have also been re appropriated by your adorable offspring.

Fluff the tulle, string, and hang your tulle garland. When the party store gets in their stock, be there when the doors open and purchase favor bags and hangy-downy, swirly things for the ceiling. Grab cheaply made party favors, call it a day, and eat cupcakes with 3 year olds.

Oh, before I forget. In order to make it a really successful party, lose your phone and forget to ask anyone to take pictures. Super Mom for the win.

You could get saved by your brother-in-law who gets you a shot of the birthday girl biting into her cupcake. Love him.

Yeah, I’m pretty awesome at this whole party-planning thing. Want me to plan yours? The good news is that it was fun, lo-key, even though it was totally unworthy of any kind of party-planning website or Pinterest.

I know the stakes are raised when kids get older, but for now I’m fine with these types of parties. What about you? Do you throw event-planner worthy parties for your young children or are you more casual with the affairs?

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you use tulle fabric?

Tulle shouldn’t be directly ironed or pressed because it has a low melting point. The best way to get rid of creases is with steam or a pressing cloth and a low iron setting. Use a self-healing mat and a rotary cutter to minimise moving when cutting.

What garment is made of tulle?

The most popular uses for tulle are in ballerina tutus, wedding gowns, and veils. Tulle is widely accessible and comes in a huge variety of colours. If it is made of nylon, rayon, or silk, it can be coloured at home; but, if it is composed of polyester, it cannot.

What are tulle dresses made of?

A net-like fabric known as tulle is created with silk, nylon, rayon, or polyester threads. The translucent, delicate, and light fabric is frequently used to create tutus, bridal veils, and other special event wear.
