Noah's Ark Themed Party

I put together a Noah's Ark Themed party for a friend of mine, whose twins turned 2. In fact that is how I got to the theme: 2 x 2= Noahs Ark. (Don't laugh but the entire time I was working on the party I would sing "they all go in two by two, hoorah, hoorah" in my head.)

I had a lot of fun putting together this party and it was great fun working together with my friend on the party stuff.

Here take a look at how I put together the party:

At the entrance I had a sign showing where to go for the party (and of course some balloons):
I made a cute little box for the presents to go into:
Then I set up a table with different animal masks for each child to take:
And here is the party table:
Cute? I thought so :)
And of course I took pictures of all the food:
And here's the cake I made:
I think it looked quite cute but I defiantly want to better my cake making skills. They just not perfect yet!!! (oops is that my ocdness coming out again???)

For the party favours I made snake shaped brownie cookies and my friend got little animal finger puppets. We then found this cute boat shaped paper "bowls" and used those to put the party favours in.
(Just a funny side story: When my friend and I went to buy the paper bowls the lady who helped us asked us what we were planning on doing with them because they were a new product and we were the first people to buy them)

Here take a look at how they were used:

Hope you enjoyed taking a look at my latest party!!!!
Thank you 'N' for letting me be apart of the boys special day. Happy Birthday to my "nephews".

Latest Party

About a week ago I helped a group of friends throw a surprise anniversary present for a very good friend of ours. We each helped out with the catering and the planning. My contribution was some baked goods and tags for the food.

The colour scheme was purple and silver so of course my tags had to match and I even made the cupcakes match.

Take a look at what I did:
My favourite thing I did for the party was add a little purple diamante stud to each ice cream spoon. I really thought it added a bit of glamour :)
I think I'll be using that idea again for other parties.
