I love this! I'm doing a Frog Prince birthday for my son based on Disney's "the princess and the frog". It's his favorite movie! There just isn't much out there for just prince Naveen, so I'm thinking of incorporating the bayou theme to it! I was wondering if I could have your receipe for the Swamp water? Such a great idea! Thank you!

Hi Maria! It was so easy! I found several recipes that used green sherbet and such but I made a simpler recipe myself - regular lemonade mix with green food coloring added. I also added gummy worms, Swedish fish and some edible pearls. It was simple, easy and tasted great! Your party theme sounds adorable! We love that movie at our house and watch it often. Thanks, Emily

Cake_pelican_thumb what did you use as moss lookers?

Cake_pelican_thumb I used moss "tape" that I bought at Dollar Tree around the base of the cake. I taped actual Spanish Moss under the bases and then used reindeer moss around the base of the stand I also purchased at Dollar Tree.

Invitation_thumb did you just blow these eggs out then put the the sticker over opening and where could I get the stickers? Love this idea

Invitation_thumb Actually I purchased them at Michaels and drilled a hole. It was VERY easy and not as fragile as dealing with real eggs. Email me at emily@magnoliacreativeco.com to order stickers. Thanks!

Gator_thumb Hey Allison! I actually borrowed it from a friend. A customer that purchased the swamp printable collection from me found him on a website and sent me the link in case anyone asked. I'll find it and post it here for you.

Mintjulepicedteacontainer_thumb Hi Magnolia C, I have another question for you that I hope you can answer. I went to your website and looked at your Swamp Party Printable collection. Do you know what type of paper was used for the food tags? Thanks :-)

Gator_thumb Ok, bad news, I can't find that link. I remember I found a couple when she and I were searching online. Just search "plastic alligator toy", he was about 15" long. I'll keep searching. I'm going to keep looking though. For all the printed items in the party I used brown kraft cover stock paper. I bought a package at Joanne's but I'm sure you can find the same at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. It gives a great, natural look.
