Part II: The Celebration!
I was trying to keep this a small party because Lilli had a big 1st birthday, I still however, wanted to make it special and fun! Cupcakes seem to be all the rage these days, and who doesn't like a cupcake? So that was my over all theme, it was on the invite, mini cupcakes, napkin/utinsil holder and favor bags. Not to mention the seven flavors of actual cupcakes. Yes, I was baking for quite awhile! It was really fun to plan it all out. Every evening for a couple hours I would turn my bedroom into party central. This is the final result....
"The Cupcake Bar"
Martha Stewart's Banana Cupcakes with Honey Cinnamon Frosting
I also made Boston Cream Cupcakes, Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, Yellow and Chocolate mini Cupcakes!
The welcome banner. Made from paper, ribbon, and a glue gun.
Cupcake and candy table cards in front of each cupcake flavor and candy glass.
I wanted to incorporate the pictures of Lilli somewhere so I found these frames for a dollar apiece and then "doctored them up" with green ribbon. Then I placed them around the cupcake bar.
While searching the web for cute ideas I stumbled accross this idea on sweet paul.
Since it there were more adults than children I thought this game would be fun. Basically you give everyone a piece of paper and a pen. Next, tell them they have 10 seconds to start to draw Lilli before I call time and they pass the drawing to the person to the right. For the next 1o seconds they have to take that persons drawing and complete what they can to make it look like beautiful Lillias. Repeat every 10 seconds until the original drawing they started with is back to each person. They turned out lovely huh!?!?
