EllaFun Party

Meet Ella, Bella, and Boo the elephant sisters. 
I sewed these darlings for my little girls birthday.

For her birthday I want to have fun with a girly Elephant theme.
I collected fun treats like Circus Peanuts, cotton candy and Taffy as well as Fruit Loops. 
Parties should be geared for the kids and not too grown up, right?

I got some fun milk bottles from Hobby Lobby that I put chocolate milk in.
My mom contributed the paper straws. I love those. These glass bottles are
not kid friendly and I discovered that quite quickly, but they were fun.

My sister in law is a cake genius.  She helped me decorating the cupcakes.  I
had a loose idea of making an elephant with fondant.  She took that and made these
darling "ellie" heads and embellished with juju flowers.  We stuck them in the middle
of super yummy strawberry frosting loaded with yummy strawberries and cream cheese.

My precious little one loved it. "My tate" she said of her cupcake.
"My mook."  (milk)

A Bakery Birthday!

My L loves baking and especially loves cupcakes.
Delight was gifted her by my mother for her birthday.
My mom put together a little shop with a pass through window.
For the awning she hung up a sheet, saving a portion to use as a table cloth.
She set up a tiered table to display toy treats and had real goodies for the kids to "buy" and eat.
The kids would point to a toy treat and order and my girl would fill their order.
My mom kept it really simple and had on hand inexpensive cookies (she purchased for $1) 
to use in the shop for when children made orders.  The fun thing about those was that she had
 play cookies in the same styles as the real cookies.

Opening Gifts and sending cookie gift boxes home!
Simple origami boxes filled with cookies for the favors.

I was super happy with how much fun everyone had and thanks to my 
wonderful mother I didn't do any party work!

Star Wars Party

Happy Birthday to my 4 an 7 year old kids! 

I found a good use for Pintrest!  I knew they wanted a Star Wars themed party so they
could wear their costumes again.  These costumes have been the most requested wear
again costume I have ever made.
I found some fun ideas and weeded out the too difficult ones and then begged some cool
things from my sister.  My sister has these templates that you dust on sugar or cocoa and 
poof you have a storm trooper on your cupcake. She really has my back!
 I also made light saber pretzel sticks, smore's tie fighters, and Yoda soda (which was better
in theory, tasted icky, lime kool-aid is gross)
