Moving right along with decorations for your Nancy Drew party (have you check out the Nancy Drew Dessert Table and Nancy Drew Games). Here is Jennifer of The Party Teacher with details of how she created these fun Nancy Drew decorations. Since I love the Nancy Drew books of the 1950s, I went for a certain amount of patina with this party. My wreath was made to order by Simple Joys Paperie. Lana used pages from an actual Nancy Drew book to make the wreath and added a center art piece from Love the Day.
From my local antique store, I rented a vintage typewriter, rotary phone and a typewriter case to elevate my cake stand.
One of my favorite decorative elements is the Nancy Drew portrait that anchored the mantle. This was as simple as having my local copy store blow up the cover of a Nancy Drew book. Around it, I added:
Vintage Nancy Drew books
Goodwill clock that I spray painted oil rubbed bronze
My daughters’ initials made from white wood letters from Michaels and covered in patterned paper from the Love the Day collection
Large 8, which is actually an old gas station number I found on Etsy
Fabric strip bunting that I made in shades of yellow and gray. (See the tutorial here.)
To designate the favors and detective capes areas, as well as the secret passageway, I used pennants from the Love the Day collection and added my own letters. (See the tutorial here.)
I am a wife of one, mother of two and a graphic designer who loves to throw and style parties. There is nothing I love more than to find unique and creative ways to celebrate the most important days in our lives. Whether it be through printable products or creative diy decorations, I try to find ways to make parties memorable so others can Love The Day.
