I actually created all these labels and put together this table 2 years ago, but I’m just NOW finally sharing it! Perfect for our monthly Point of View link party, don’t forget to come link up your tabletop posts!
A year and a half ago I threw this amazing airplane baby shower for my cousin. I love how it turned out, it’s still one of my favorites, but I never got around to sharing the printables! I get requests often though, so I finally sat down and finished them this week!
First up are the invitations! I used my silhouette machine to cut these out and add perforations, but you can always hand cut them and leave the perforations out. I love how they turned out, and the base of the whole party!
I mentioned last week that Lego Boy turned 8 and got baptized. After the baptism we had everyone come over to our place for a picnic lunch to celebrate. We were going to do a park but it turned into the hottest week all summer, THEN 2 days of rain so I wasn’t sure what the weather would be and we decided to just set up at home and not risk it.
I had such a fun time creating this Angry Birds birthday party for Lego Boy! He’s such a fun kid, and making hime happy is always so much fun! Every aspect was a BALL! Lego Boy has been talking about Angry birds for years now and I LOVE how this turned out.
I decided to make the food all bird/pig themed. There were SO many options and foods that can be used so I narrowed it down to two food items for each bird, one really unique and one more simple (shape and color). Then added food items for the pigs, the blogs and even the TNT!
The first part of any party is the invitation! It’s the first anyone will see of your theme, and get an idea of what to expect! At my kids charter school for kids on the spectrum invitations tend to get lost. I usually get them about 2 weeks AFTER the party happens.
When I first start talking about birthday party themes with my kids we start with the cake design. Lego boy drew this design out himself! He wanted each tier a different bird. I wish I still had the sketch to show you, it was so cute! Originally he wanted EVERY bird a different tier, there are over 9 now, GAH!
So we cut it down to the original five! These tier sizes are 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches. I had SO much fun making each layer. I started with the thin, small details for each bird, the red under eye are on The Blues, the cheek spots on Red, the grey eye circles on Bomb and the cheeks on Matilda. Then I cut out the eyes for each bird by hand and then their beaks (thicker this time).
