I’ve said before that my sister is super talented and I’m going to say it again, she is talented. The cake was awesome. Everyone but the little guys in the carts are made from food. The banana, mushroom, and plant thing(sorry I don’t know what it’s called) are all made from laffy taffy! The dirt is from cookies and brown sugar.
Green frosting. GumballsAmazing right?! Well it doesn’t stop there.The mushroom sticks are just foam with felt paper on them. But they are cute and go with the theme. Every kid wants balloons at their party so there you go. The banner was so cute. As long as you have a little time you can make this! It’s just paper, mario cut outs, and string!Treat table! My sister made those hats. She bought the foam hat from hobby lobby and then bought foam paper and got a hat. Blow up winners cup for the winner of the race later. Yoshi eggs, and toy treats. The yoshi game was fun. It’s dollar store cups with fruit drawn on.
They had the party blowers and they would have to knock the cups off the table with the blower(which was a yoshi tong. They got to split into pairs and decorate there own mario cart. My sister and I both have kids in diapers so it wasn’t had to gather diaper boxes.lolThese Yoshi eggs were for the game where you balance the egg on a spoon.Mario treat bags!Believe it or not but the sign on the front was from a fruit snack box! But it worked out perfectly lol!The treat bags had mario pez dispensers, mario smarties, a flag notebook, silly string, and of course gold coins.
Well there you have it! Hope you liked it!
If you were wondering there are not a lot of stuff out there for Jessie. But so many little girls love her! So it took a little while to figure it out. The invites were simple and cute. Glitter paper and a picture I found online on the front with a simple saying on the back
So at our house we end up having two parties. One for friends and one for family. I’ve found that if I have the kid party earlier and the adult party later it’s one set up and one take down and it works out pretty well.
I made cupcakes and a small single layer cake for the kids party. long with moo pops (marshmallows and food coloring) and candy ropes.
The kids all got a pez dispenser at the end of the party as their treat. The cost 69 cents a piece.
The red barrel drinks were really cheap. A whole pack cost 2.50. The gold glitter stickers were a dollar at dollar tree. The cow blowers were 1.99 at hobby lobby.
Nerd ropes fit with the themes and worked great. The cupcakes had the glitter stickers and jessie stickers, the other cupcakes had gold stars. The table cloths was discounted fabric at hobby lobby that i just hemmed.
The kids played pin the tail on bullseye and they had the fuzzy color pages at the dollar tree. We also had a quiz about the movies
So the cake for the family party has to be bigger. We have a lot of family and we have friends that come so we have to have a lot of cake! So this one was 4 layers. The gold stars are sugar paper. That stuff is cool. and the black is frosting with food coloring. The singing cowgirl on top was found at the disney store(not cheap but not too bad 5.99)
Decorating the garage is a must. With all the people we have to more space. The townhome is just not big enough. The red table cloths served as a wall and we hung gold stars. We also had a birthday garland hanging. If you missed it, i have a post on the garland it’s called “birthday garland”.
The banner was cowgirl boots with glitter on them. There is a store around the corner from me called Pebbles in my Pocket. http://www.pebblesinmypocket.com/ I love that store. They also have an online store! It has lots of cute stuff along with the cut outs. They have tons of paper and any cut outs you can imagine. I just added tulle and letters and that was it. The balloons and hanging stars with the table added some flare. It was a fun party. Hope you like it!
My mom is a genius and made this birthday party garland for Shaylie’s Jessie party. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Jessie, she is from Toy Story 2. She is a cowgirl that is friends with woody and bullseye the horse.
I took this picture the night of the party. The garland looked great during the day but at night it really looked great
So this is how she did it. She got a normal string of christmas lights and first added the ribbon.
The ribbons were a cowgirl theme and the colors of the party. She also added tulle.
added wooden cut outs from Hobby Lobby and they are about 49 cents each. There was a horse, a boot, and a red star.
Then for a personal touch she added cow frames (dollar frames add the cow spots) with the birthday girls picture. And there you go!
Just as cute as at night!
Here we go football fans! It’s that time of year and we love to have a party so here is an idea for the games coming up! So at my house we are bay area faithfuls but you can do this with any team you want. My mom went online and printed out all the 49er stuff that is displayed.This is simple! A basket with a napkin in it will throw more theme on the table.
Football scrap paper is not hard to find. just wrap it around a cup to show more support for your team.
Football hats for the kids with a team sticker on it! The kids loved it.
And of course what is a party without food. When you save money decorating you can spend more on food! Along with the cheese ball we had wings, hot dogs, egg rolls, chips and dip, and pigs in a blanket! That is why I love football…….THE FOOD!
