Birthday Hockey Face Off

hockey cover-p001

The good ol’ hockey game…It’s the best game you can name!

Hockey is our family’s sport and with the Stanley Cup playoffs going on at the same time as my oldest sons birthday, it was only right to have a hockey themed party!IMG_9039IMG_9167IMG_9171IMG_9296 IMG_9032 IMG_9226IMG_9211  IMG_9043

I designed the party printables to have a bit of modern vintage and I wanted it to be a hockey theme with no particular team preference.  Navy and red seemed to fit that idea best. IMG_9102 (2) IMG_9098 IMG_9148 IMG_9131 IMG_9147

Anyone interested in some hot cocoa! IMG_9123 IMG_9127

I am such a fan of stripes, so the black and white tablecloth worked perfectly because it reminded me of referee stripes.  All the sweets were hockey themed; Oreo puck stack, NHL stick and puck dip, hot chocolate and who will forget those beat up toothless hockey player cookies!  IMG_9207

Using the cookies to decorate the cake was a last minute decision.  When I saw the cookie art created by Cookievonster, I knew I had to showcase this rugged bobble head looking hockey star!IMG_9048 IMG_9202

I lucked out and found these Stanley Cup Special Edition Oreos !

And then I found this great Sticks & Puck Dip by Leelalicious.com, the tutorial that I followed can be found here.IMG_9124 IMG_9039IMG_9196

Happy birthday to one happy hockey fan!

Time Flies : Niko is One

time flies blog post-p001

Wow did this year fly by!  When I started thinking about the theme for my youngest son’s birthday, all that came to mind was “My oh my, how time flies!”  It has been nothing but a pleasure watching this little man grow and I really wanted to make his first birthday special as I am pretty sure it will be my last 1st birthday celebration.  Bittersweet, but mostly sweet :)

I love my boys and I can’t wait to show you how we celebrated this munchkin’s first birthday!!

IMG_7842 IMG_7872 IMG_7916 IMG_7914 IMG_7846IMG_7857 IMG_7896

The ‘propeller pops’ are marshmallows dipped in melted red chocolate wafers.  I then rolled out some store bought fondant and stamped out some tear shaped ‘propellers’.  Finishing them with some red m&m’s brought the treat to life!

IMG_7911

The LIFE magazine cover was the first thing I designed in this party package and it was sent as a save the date to guests!

IMG_7869

I purchased these adorable little brown suitcases on Amazon and then attached some cute luggage tags, which are included in the party package.

IMG_7926

I had so much fun customizing every detail of this party and many of the “in service” food items were also sent home as party favors!

IMG_7932 IMG_7938IMG_7934  IMG_7958

I used an IKEA rolling tray as the “In Service cart” which was filled with the many party favors; snack mix, sugar cookies by a sweet friend Shereen of The Sugar Tree, water bottles, chocolate bars and of course, napkin and utensils!

IMG_7949 IMG_7955

My little man even had his very own cockpit!  I created the large propeller using a cake centerpiece printable and then cut out two large tear drop shapes from the patterned papers.

IMG_7961

Every Captain need a proper hat!

IMG_7978 IMG_8313 IMG_8328IMG_8375 IMG_7963 IMG_7966

There are many tutorials online on how to make scalloped pinatas, but to give a quick explanation: purchase a paper party lantern, hot glue paper tissue that you cut into circles, layer by layer.  Then fill it with treats and seal the bottom with a large piece of the patterned paper.  Pretty simple and cheap!

IMG_7991

There were two games designed to keep the little party guests entertained throughout the afternoon.  First was this is Airplane Toss;  purchase white foam board, trace and cut out several sized circles with and exacto knife and added some pinwheels!

IMG_8134 IMG_8131 IMG_8148

The second party games was Pin the Propeller.  I sent the poster to print at Costco on their largest lustre photo print, the kids were then blindfolded and attempted to make the target.

IMG_7997

Dream BIG, little ONE!  These cute shoes were purchased at Zara.

IMG_8030 IMG_8027 IMG_8026

Here is a large series of a photo banner I created to document all the months and milestone firsts that meant to such to us!

IMG_8033IMG_8022 IMG_8010 IMG_8012

At the end of the day all the guests were sent to the “luggage claim” to pick up their favor bags!

IMG_8359 IMG_8362IMG_8204

Happy birthday my dear sweet little boy!  You are loved!

Sugar Cookies : The Sugar Tree

Mod Outdoors Man Birthday Party

 outdoors man blog post-p001

Choosing a party theme for a growing boy is always a challenge.  It is the need to create something that the child likes and what the parents want!  I got the inspiration for this design because 1. daddy hunts 2. little man likes to camp 3. I thought I could combine the outdoors man theme with some modern black and white graphics!  A great recipe for a hip party for a cool lil guy!

IMG_2932IMG_2915

 Accents of gold were incorporated, one being the spray painted forest animals like this full grown moose!

These chocolate acorns were a huge hit and very simple to make!  Hershey Kisses were attached to mini cookies with frosting and then a butterscotch chip on top.

Wide open spaces, that what little boys need, room to roam and explore!

IMG_2928

I love making this style of cake, I have a step by step tutorial in my ‘Pretty Party Basics’ section so if you are interested in trying this frosting technique, that is a great place to start!IMG_2956  IMG_2922 IMG_2921 IMG_2997

Chocolate bar wrappers were used to cover the smarties boxes!IMG_2946IMG_3082IMG_2969IMG_2973

I loved designing the different party signs!  I decided to make a gallery of the different prints so I cut them out into different shapes and sizes and attached them to black foam board.  Mate actually has several of these hanging in his bedroom today!

I hope you enjoyed this modern take on the outdoors man party theme!  I have the full party package in shop, click here
