Recently my friend Pam asked if I could help her out with her little guy's 3rd birthday party. Of course I can! She wanted me to design the cupcakes and party favors. Two things I love to do!!
The party was at Chuck E. Cheese's in Harlem.
For the cupcakes, I was told he likes the color red and sports balls - specifically baseballs and basketballs. So, I started designing. We also thought it would be cute to have his face on the cupcake topper so I made 2 different designs.
This one got both designs. It must have been the birthday boy's.
I used red icing with blue and yellow cupcake liners.
When it was time to sing the Happy Birthday song, they brought out the Chuck E. Cheese's mascot.
I think it freaked out the kids. (do you blame them?) He was politely asked to leave.
Time to blow out the candles,
and eat the cupcakes. Looks like he liked them!
Apparently, so did my daughter.
For the favors, Pam already bought some of the items but she also wanted personalized mini chocolate bars and lollipops and have them all wrapped up together in one package.
For the chocolate bars, I put his face on the front with a birthday message on the back, and the lollipops just had his face.
I designed a card to match the cupcake toppers that was used as the top of the favor bag.
Sometimes designing for boys is a bit harder than for girls but I think these came out pretty cute!
Since I've been getting requests for party designs, I thought I would add them to my Etsy Shop. What themes do you like for boys parties? Anything special for girls?
What about adults? (we like to have parties too!)
I'll let you know when they're available.
