My husband, sister, and I worked for a couple weeks before the party to make each character from the game. I borrowed an overhead projector, bought foam board, sharpies, and dowel rods... and this is what we created!
I wanted a dessert for each character so here is what I came up with
Lollipops with personalized stickers
Melted Ice Cream Cones
Peanut Butter Fudge
I always like to have a little "activity center" at each of my parties, so this year I let them decorate their pails for the prizes. I saved a bunch of the small formula cans, took the labels off, covered them with card stock, and attached a ribbon.
My friend Samantha ordered some adorable banners for me from Shannon at Sweet Bug A Boo's! There were three total. Here is what one of them looked like
My parents happened to have some wooden lollipops that they used to use for Christmas decorations, so I used them for her party. Would have loved to have repainted then, but time just ran out. The cotton candy was made using some gathered pink mesh, a poster board, and a dowel rod.
Her outfit was so cute and came from Golden. I made her tutu and it was actually a lot easier than I thought!
I thought it would be cute to have something on her bottom, so I got Kajun Monograms to add this to her outfit
My sister even dressed up for the occasion. Her shirt also came from Kajun Monograms
I bought a bunch of pieces of 12x12 card stock at Hobby Lobby. I punched a small hole in each corner and tied them together with fishing string to make a path
I always like to have games at my parties as well. This one was pin the snowflake on the wand
The next one was pop the plum. I just used little water balloons and added a piece of paper in each. They had to pull one off the tree and pop it to reveal their prize
I also had a bowling game called Strikes and Stripes. I had saved the containers that those little puff snacks come in and then wrapped them with red duct tape.
The last game was Gumdrop Drop. I had a small step ladder and a jar. The kids had to drop the gumdrop into the jar.
I have only made one other cake in my life, but decided I wanted to make her cake this year. It isn't technically correct in anyway, but I was still proud of the outcome.
With all the other stuff I had to do, there wasn't going to be much time to make cookies. I know, I know... how could I NOT make cookies for my kids birthday when that is what I do?? Well when you have an amazingly talented friend offer to make them for you... you take them up on the offer! They turned out so adorable! I couldn't have done a better job than she did! Samantha is the owner of Flour-De-Lis! Make sure to check out her facebook page, website, and Etsy store! Yep... this is the same Samantha that sent me the banners!! How awesome is she!?!
I also made her smash cake. It was nothing special, but I topped it with one of the cute cookies to dress it up!!
I had TONS of candy at the party! How could I not?? For the kids favors, I let them fill little boxes with the candy to take home. I was at least nice enough to send a toothbrush home with them as well :)
Well... there you have it! Weeks and weeks of work... well worth it!! Everyone loved the party and I was so happy that my little princess had a great day!
If you have any questions about how I made anything or where I got anything from... feel free to ask!!
