Today was B's birthday party....
Candy Land Theme!!
We made Gummy Necklaces
(Livesaver Gummies - that's why B has a string around her neck...you can kind of see the necklace on the girl in background in the picture below....)
They decorated Gingerbread men...
You should have SEEN all the glorious decorating!!! LOVED it!!
and they just had plain ole fun in the backyard rolling around...
This was the rainbow birthday cake I made... it was THE "funnest" thing to make
and I made cupcakes to go along with the giant cupcake.
To get the bright vibrant colors, you can't use food coloring, you have to use the gel...
The decorations were so fun to make too!!!
I made candies to hang on the walls...
(the candies were to paper plates facing each other and taped...then I wrapped them in tissue paper and then in cellophane.
Lollipops to put in the grass on the way up to the house.
For the lollipops, I painted dowel rods white and stuck them in Styrofoam that was round, covered the Styrofoam in tissue paper, then again in cellophane...
THEN... there was the table....
I am IN LOVE with the table....
I had Chocolate Mountain (Hershey Kisses), a gingerbread house, Cupcake Commons, Licorice Lagoon, Gummy Hills, Lollipop Woods (all names from the game)
And I made labels and tents for each one too....
I also added in candy buttons, Skittles, and a rainbow fruit tray (just because..lol)
NOW... for the goodie bags???
In addition to all the candy the could grab,
I made a little "box" that had a TOOTHBRUSH!!!
because I was destroying their teeth from all the candy, I figured the least I could do was to help fix them.
All in all, I could NOT have asked for a better group of friends to celebrate B's First Birthday.
I love my groups of friends and they love B so much.
