Birthday Idea

This is my second post today so scroll down to see the thank you card post!

This is what I've been busy with when not making cards. My younger two kids have birthdays 10 days apart so this year I decided to have both parties on the same day in between. We rented a bounce house for 4 hours in the gym at our church. Each party was 1.5 hours long with a break for us to change the colors of plates, tablecloth, napkins etc. in between! The bounce house was HUGE and took up half the gym.
Here are the invitations:
Instead of cake at the parties we had build-your-own sundaes which I would highly recommend. They really seemed to like this and it is not much work. Just have plenty of spray whipped cream. We used 1 can at each party (6-8 kids).
For favors I made cupcakes in polka-dot papers that work for boy or girl and decorated the same way. The boxes I purchased from a party supply store for 50-cents each which was definitely worth it. I made the belly bands with leftover dsp strips. Guess I forgot to get a picture of the boy ones but they were in tangerine tango, pacific point, and rainbow sherbet dsp.
Here's a close-up of the medallion on top. Luckily, I remembered I had a tiny cupcake stamp that I had received as a booking incentive years ago!

Thanks for stopping by!

Till next time, Tasha

These are great! I like the little cup cake I remember using it once before I got many stamps. Great idea for the Belly Bands

Wow, you are a busy girl! I love the idea of your "double" party. The invitations, cupcakes, and boxes (err...belly bands) are absolutely adorable! How clever to have them make their own sundaes! Wish I would have thought of that when my daughter was younger :O) I seemed to have done ALL the work...I recall nonstop chaos :]
