I’m so excited to share with you our latest little soiree:
I set up a table a table for the kids to make cards for their friends. I place premade cards throughout the table along with supplies so that the kids could replicate them, of course making their own additions. The mini mailboxes came from Target. I wanted to use them in a different way than what I have seen before because they are pretty popular, so I decided to place the card making supplies (glue stick, glitter glue, stickers, scissors, etc) for each child in their mailbox and personalized them with their name. We left lollipops on the tables so that the kids could add a little sweet something to each card. The kids had a great time. Lesson Learned: Instead placing the a bowl of lollipops on the tables, we probably should have handed them to the girls one by one as they finished each card because the blow pops were the first thing that the kids went for! Ehhh, its only one day right?
The backdrop for the dessert table was made using a few table runners that I found at Target. I attached them together using fishing wire. The Purple Pug made an absolutely adorable banner that we strung across the backdrop and the Love banner in front of the table. The treats were just absolutely great. Sweet-T-Cakes made these beautiful and delicious cookies. The fondant QUEEN Lynlee Petite Cakes made this gorgeous cupcake toppers in the shape of the boat, life vest and more. They are just so beautiful I couldn’t believe it. Cakes and Kids supplied these lovely cupcake containers, paper straws and sprinkles (I really do have admiration for all of you who can make perfect round cake balls, it is NOT my gift) but the sprinkle definitely helped camouflage that and tasted great by the way! I purchased the push-up pop containers from Cupkate Event Designs a while back and finally had an opportunity to use them. Kids love m&m’s so it worked out perfectly. I also hooked up some movie popcorn with some blue sugar sprinkles and dropped a handful of valentine day m&m’s on top. Yum!
Love, Life Sweetest Reward…
