ARDENS ANIMAL PARTY
I got all of these gorgeous party supplies pictured above from Pop Roc Parties and used things I had around the house for the remainder of the decorations. I had some animal images printed at the library and I cut them out and put on party hats, the little party hats I whipped up with some cardboard, a hot glue gun and mini pom poms, and the greenery was scavenged from the garden and I made use of my many house plants too.
So here it is…Arden’s Animal Party.
All the kids food was done in mini versions – bite size so that they didn’t over indulge and make a mess!
I made chocolate chunk cupcakes and covered them in the silky vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream.
mini hats on the animals, water balloons filled with air to make mini balloons, greenery from the garden and the food itself were the decorations for the main table. The cake was elevated on a wooden crate to make it the centre of attention.
A simple white balloon garland, made by threading string through the ends of the balloons created a subtle feature that filled up that blank space of the wall.
In the entrance we had the party animals leading the way…
I had every intention of getting some gorgeous snaps of Arden in front of his Giant number 2 which I had seen on pinterest…however this was as good as it got!
I added some greenery to his My Little Teepee Teepee and to the helium balloon and it looked just magical!
The Birthday boy enjoying some “ice cream” he wasn’t interested in the cupcake itself, only the icing!
Here is the masterpiece in all its glory. It seriously was delicious…even if I do say so myself!
And the party animals hung around for a few days after providing lots of enjoyment!
I hope you loved seeing his party snaps as much as I enjoying making it happen!
