 Let’s start off with one of the main components – the Milk.  I used my favorite Starbucks glass container – you can see the full tutorial on how I created them here. The milk carafes were placed in a galvanized drink bucket and topped with the round milk labels included in the set.

The crate from my little cutie oranges turned into the perfect box for holding the cookies.  I used some of the pattern paper that is included with the printable package to cover the sides and one of the thank you tags for the center.

Of course no Cookies and Milk themed birthday party would be complete without cupcakes.  These delicious cookies and cream frosted cupcakes were to die for.   Topped with the cupcake circles and of course the editable food labels.

The best part of a Milk and Cookie themed party is that each guest can go home with their own little box filled with yummy cookies!  The printable set includes the Famous Cookies circles and the editable favor tags.  Personalizing each gift bag is a great way to make sure everyone goes home happy and the gift boxes never get mixed up.

Motorcycle Party :: Another Happy Customer

My good friend Monica at Andary Studio’s came to me last year to design a  Collection for her sons upcoming  Motorcycle Birthday Party.  I jumped at the chance because I knew the design would be a hit for “kids” of all ages.  She wanted to stick with black and orange to play off the Harley Davidson colors.  I added gray and a diamond plate pattern to the design to give it a tough guy feel.

Football Tailgate Party

My brother-in-law and sister are huge football fans so it was no surprise that they requested a football themed party for my nephew’s 3rd birthday.  His birthday falls right around the start of football season so they set the date for opening day.

AJ’s Surfs Up Birthday Party

I recently styled my son’s Surfs Up Party to celebrate his 3rd birthday!  Originally, we planned on a shark party ~ but I changed it last minute after seeing the adorable Surf Legend Collection at Gymboree.   I love the blue, orange & brown color scheme and my friend happen to have a bin full of Hawaiian decorations left over from my Bachelorette Party {let’s just say we could not stop laughing when we opened the storage container;-) }

Boys Surfing Party

The surfboard backdrop inspiration came from Holly at Paisley Petal Events.  My husband is not much of a handyman so cutting out surfboard shapes from plywood- as simple as it may have been – would be TOTALLY out of the question.  Instead I created a mini version using a 20 x 30 photo print,  foam board and the Centerpiece Circles (tutorial coming soon!).

Surfing Party Cupcakes

Surfing Party

I love making the sweets and treats for my little ones parties.  This year I made cake pops, chocolate covered Oreos and shark bite donuts. I’m way to OCD to attempt the cupcakes so I left those to the professionals.

Surf Board Cookies

My sister stepped in to save the day after I COMPLETELY forgot to pick up the cookies from the bakery…OOPS.  She did a great job considering it was an hour or two before the party.

Surfs Up Birthday Banner

Surf Party Favor Bags

Each little surfer received his/her own bag of goodies.  They especially loved the shark snack container filled with Skittles (per the birthday boys request).

Surf Party Food

For dinner I served chicken kabobs and an assortment of yummy summer salads

Little Surfer Boys

The best part of the whole day was watching these two surfer dudes hang ten on the surf boards!

I am still in disbelief  that I have a THREE year old and  nearly 5 year old:(
I really don’t know where the time has gone but I am trying to enjoy every last second with both of them

Safari Party {Another Happy Customer}

This wonderful party comes from my friend Autumn who claims to be “un-crafty”.  When you see the photos of her sons birthday party I think you will disagree.  She contacted me last fall to create some custom party decorations after searching high and low for Safari party decor.

Western Cowboy Birthday Party

This fall we celebrated my nephew’s second birthday with a western cowboy birthday party. My sister had a couple different ideas in mind but eventually settled on the theme since he loves his rocking horse and the vintage Red Ryder Horse we have at our house.  

Western Cowboy Party

After a little convincing we moved her kitchen table outside and set the dessert table up in front of her shed in the back yard – I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.

Western Cowboy Party

Creating a dessert table can be a little tricky when the guest of honor has an egg and peanut allergy. My sister found a wonderful road side stand that sells homemade pies and was able to order them with no egg wash. I made the s’more pops using oversize and regular marshmallow and we put my mom in charge of the haystacks. She substituted the peanut butter for sun-butter {made from sunflower seed} it surprisingly tasted the same.

The invitations are printed on brown craft paper to give it that “vintage look”

Boys Golf Birthday Party – Part 1

My little guy turned two over the summer and we celebrated with an oh-so-cute Golf Birthday Party. He is all boy and loves anything that includes a stick and ball, which made choosing the golf theme fairly easy. We had fun golfing games, snacks & treats and each little caddie even received there very own golf bag. The post was getting fairly large I decided to split it in two parts.  Part one covers the favor and dessert table and part two will focus on the food and games. Enjoy!

Golf Birthday Party Favors by 505-design.com

Each “Golf Pro” received his/her own set of golf clubs (thank you Target dollar section for saving the day!), a blue or green visor I purchased at Joann’s, practice golf balls and a water bottle to stay hydrated on the course.

Golf Birthday Party Favors by 505-design.com

I created the backdrop for the dessert table with a tan table cloth I had and pinned it to the window frame with thumb tacks (my husband wasn’t too happy about that one…opps!) I used 12” white tissue paper balls that I purchased from Devra Party and hung them by grosgrain ribbon.
I wanted to use items on the dessert table that went along with the theme so I racked my brain for some golf terms. The sign over the table was “Caddie’s Sweet Spot” (sweet spot refers to the center point of the face of the club).

Golf Birthday Party Dessert Table by 505-design.com

There was a “water hazard” ~ blue jell-o jigglers, “wormburners” (which is the term for a ball that skims the grass) ~ chocolate pudding pack topped with crumbled Oreos and gummy worms plus a sand trap of “doughnut hole in one” ~ made with powder sugar doughnuts and crumbled graham crackers for the sand.

Golf Cake Pops, Water Hazzard Jello & Doughnut Hole in One by 505-design.com

I also made cake pops that resembled golf balls ~ some like a lollipop and others with a golf flag and the number two for the birthday boy. The kids had a few candy choices and a small bag to fill so they could bring treats home.
