I have grand plans for Ashley's birthday party that wasn't supposed to be a birthday party because we told her she could only have one friend sleep over which turned into three friends which turned into "I want to have a few more friends over for cupcakes" which turned into Mommy breaking out her crazy planning skills and deciding we would have a cupcake decorating party.
Whew. And it's almost here.
We are only inviting the girls she plays with on our street (which there are 5) and one other girl who is spending the night.
I googled "cupcake party" and was hit with millions of choices and ideas and games and food. I am attempting to keep it simple.
Banners - I am going to make one just like this.
These things (instructions here)
And these I found on this blog (not the cake, the other things...)
I am keeping this party short - only 1 1/2 hours. So we will obviously decorate some cupcakes with a cupcake bar and fondant. I found a few games we could play if needed, and we will be making a cupcake bracelet.
The cupcakes. I haven't really thought about anything else.
There really isn't a goody bag per se, I have bought cupcake boxes so they can take one of their cupcakes they decorate home. I also have bought aprons and cupcake patches, and there are the bracelets. I did see cupcake bandaids and lipgloss, but I think if I order one more thing off the internet for this party, my debit card will explode.
And then I will send the girls home, and hopped up on sugar! Sorry neighbors!
Did I mention I haven't started doing any prep for this? Yea, getting on that this week....
