We had my Daughter's 3rd Birthday Party on a very sunny & hot day (it was expected to rain, but instead we got hot weather). Everything went very smoothly & everyone enjoyed the great food that was made by different family members. We stayed within the girly Dora colors: Purple, Pink, & Blue.
Full Sheet Cake: vanilla cake with almond buttercream frosting
FOR KIDS: I bought small pails from Party City for 99 cents & filled them with Dora themed favors from Party City & tied a different colored Pink/Purple/Blue Balloon to each one: paint Dora magnet, sunglasses, bubbles, mini notebook w/ pen, stamp, kazoo, tambourine, Dora mini activity book, mini camera, & a harmonica. I also bought black glitter stickers to put the names of the kids on the buckets. FOR EVERYONE: Had 24 cupcakes made from a coworker at my Boyfriends work. She made 12 vanilla & 12 chocolate cupcakes with bright colored buttercream frosting. Each cupcake had 3 edible pearls, 3 small fondant flowers, & a Dora/Boots Cupcake Topper
