Pirate Party Favors

Here is a perfect way to mix and match party favors for boy's and girls, for the girls we have glass bottles filled with dark aqua mermaid bubbles and a tiny rolled up "treasure map" complete with aged edges.  The necklaces are made with two shades of blue ribbons and adorned with Swarovski crystals and an aqua bead.  For the boys I take the same bottle filled with bubbles and a tiny map and add a pirate ship charm.  The boys bottles include a muslin pouch.  All favors are delivered in small organza pouches, and can be created in a variety of colors, just ask!

Donald Takes the Cake!

or in this case, Donald is the cake!

just the begining!

Donald finished!

My oldest daughter (she's 3) helped me make some paper chain decorations, which I used to dress up door frames and the staircase in our foyer.  These are a super easy alternative to streamers, which we also used to decorate and add another layer of texture to decorations as well as are a great project for me to tackle with my daughter.  She loved making them so much that we made an extra one (in pink of course) to decorate her bedroom!  I purchased the paper to match out theme at Michaels Arts and Crafts, and it was on sale 2/$1.00, so for about $4.50 I made two blue and yellow chains and one pink one.  For these chains I used my paper cutter to cut 1 inch strips and used tape to attach them, this was also a great pattern exercise for my daughter since she picked each strip in order to add to the chain and keep the pattern consistent.

Along with our cake I also made double fudge cupcakes and topped them with Wilton's Extra Special Buttercream Frosting (  The frosting was delicious, but before you make this ahead please note that it must stay refridgerated until just before serving.  

Here are some cute cupcake toppers on microsoft word.
The finished product!
Our inspiration!

Party Preparations Are Under Way!

Tomorrow is my youngest daughter's 2nd bithday and the preparations have begun!  For her party it is all about Donald Duck!  I purchased a vintage Donald Duck wilton cake pan online and just popped her Funfetti cake in the oven, as soon as it is finished I will be putting in a batch of double fudge chocolate cupcakes -yummy!  As the preparations go I will add in some  new posts and pictures, my day however, will be interupted by her 2 year checkup, bringing my father-in-law to physical therapy, and hitting the grocery store at some point to figure out what are guests will eat, we were going to grill out but the weather is not going to cooperate so on to plan b - not that there is one!
