Party Recap

I recently had the opportunity to style a joint birthday...
Party included both boys and girls we chose a pixie and pirate theme to make sure all guest felt included My color palette was hot pink, black and silver

The Candy buffet was my favorite part. It featured pink and black candies with fun names to capture the theme....
Gum balls became cannonballs, pop rocks were magic rocks, and my favorite fun dip was turned to magic wishing dust. To make I used recycled baby food jars, I topped them with “make a wish” printable circles and finished lid with jute. I filled jars with fun dip and instructed kids to “make a wish” as they ate.
I used simply vanilla and butter cream cupcakes topped with my hand glittered cupcake toppers. I made a custom cupcake stand as a big feature on the table. It was simple to create, I used a round cake board that was slightly larger than my cake stand. Using my cropodile I punched holes around the entire rim of the cake board. I cut short lengths of tulle and tied them through the hole, as you would a tutu. I finished the table by scattering pearls and gems over the entire table top to tie in the pirate theme.

Kids played a variety of traditional party games. By changing the title of the game I was able to stay in theme....
Cannon ball toss- kids tossed black water balloons at targets I created.
Walk the plank- I used a 2x4 plank for kids to walk across.
Pixie ring toss. I used flower coat hooks as the target to toss rings.
No pirate themed party is complete with out a scavenger hunt. I used simple clues through out the garden which led to the kids favor bags.

Favor bags included candy collected from the buffet, pirate hats/crowns and pirate swords/fairy wands
