{Real Party} Sunflowers & Burlap

This Sunflower collection was inspired by my amazing mother, because she grew up in Kansas and has an August birthday, so whenever I see sunflowers, I think of her.

We held this party in the Fall, which was perfect timing because sunflowers were everywhere in the stores. But you could also stock up on end of season clearance items and hold the party whenever you’re in a floral mood.  🙂  I had been planning on using burlap for a while, because the natural feel of it just seemed suited for a party evoking nature themes.

This collection can be used for bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries or weddings.   In this case, it was used for my assistant’s sweet daughter Gianna, who was celebrating her 7th birthday.


I used one of the 4″ medallions from my Sunflower collection on the wreath that we hung on the front door.

Several of the Sunflower items in action:

– Party Circles used as cupcake toppers,
– Drink Labels on the water bottles
– 4″ Medallion on the drink dispenser
– Food Labels on the apothecary jars and in front of the cupcakes
– 8×10″ Frameable in the picture frame, with a photo of the birthday girl added

We embellished the banner with some sunflower stickers from Martha Stewart. They matched perfectly!

This is another 4″ Medallion, attached to the silverware dispenser.

These Sunflower brownie pops were so fun!

This Caramel Apple Dessert Dip was amazing! And so easy to make!

The favors were sunflower seeds (some to eat and some to plant) and a sunflower chocolate lollipop.

I used the cupcake toppers as a favor tag (attached to the tulle) and favor embellishment (stuck to the sunflower chocolate lollipop). They are so versatile!

Doesn’t the birthday girl look adorable? Her mom and I laughed about the fact that we met at Gianna’s 6th birthday party at Peter Piper Pizza last year. Who knew back then that she’d be having her next birthday at my house?!

I think the birthday girl was happy with the party, and so was I!

Angry Birthday party!

If you love the Angry Birds game /phone app as much as my kids do, you will love this party idea!

This amazing PLAYABLE CAKE (yes!) is made of a little chocolate cake, a lot of fondant, some chocolate covered wafers, and a repurposed kids slingshot toy. See here for a video tutorial if you want to make your own!

Most of the cake was made of colored fondant, like this red bird, ready to catapult towards the pigs.

The snack table was called “Bird Feed.” And funnily enough for a 6-year-old’s birthday party, the most popular item was the persian cucumber slices! Not offering chips or cookies was probably the key.

Magic Party

Even though I design my own party printables, sometimes your child requests a certain theme, and when you research it, you realize that you could never improve upon a collection that already exists. And that’s how I found myself using this amazing Magic Collection. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed throwing this party…

Here is the dessert table:

And the amazing custom Magic Hat cake, complete with wand!

The cupcake tower, striped “6” (cardboard number purchased at Hobby Lobby and Mod Podged with scrapbook paper).

I made some cake shooters, consisting of brownie bites and red frosting. Kids especially go mental for push pop anything!

These Top Hat Pops are my own creation, inspired by similar leprechan hats (with instructions here). They are made of jumbo marshmallows, Nilla Wafers, and dipped in dark chocolate candy melts (tinted even darker with a bit of black food coloring). I used a flat frosting tip and red frosting for the band.

I made the pretzel “magic wands” by dipping pretzels into white chocolate candy coating, and sprinkling red decorative sugar on them while they were still wet.

The cutlery holder is a re-purposed container with an opening for a photo in the front. I purchased it at Home Goods and used a favor tag instead. The glass container for the pretzels is also from Home Goods.

I filled apothcary jars with red and black candy (M&M’s, licorice, cherry sours, red gumballs, etc).
I made these tags myself, so don’t be cross with Amanda at Shindig if it isn’t included in her collection.  🙂

Because the party was near Easter, there were bunny items galore in the stores, but most of them were the wrong color scheme. But I couldn’t resist picking up these rabbit pops from Sam’s Club. The sign is a 4″ medallion taped to a chop stick (yep!) and the can is a formula can wrapped in scrapbook paper (no kidding)! See, you can make a party as elaborate or as inexpensive as you want!

Well I can’t feed the children JUST desserts, so I had another table with healthier options.

The food was fun, but the REAL highlight of the party was the magician. Christopher the Magician made the kids and the parents laugh, and after the show he gave them a magic lesson and a favor bag with magic supplies. I first met him when he performed for my son’s kindergarten class on a day that I happened to be volunteering. I think I laughed harder than the kids did, so I knew we had to have him!

Here is the birthday boy with his siblings. (He looks like he’s sulking, but I think it’s just the shadows.)
He is wearing a custom shirt that I bought on Etsy from a seller who no longer exists, but there are many other cute options, for instance these shirts with a magic hat and age number or initial.
I bought a magician costume for the birthday boy’s little brother (figured I could use it again at Halloween, right?!).
