Blake’s 4th Robot Birthday Party

My son Blake celebrated his 4th birthday at My Gym recently and we decided to go with a fun robot theme. He walks around the house saying he is a robot…so what could be more perfect!

I designed the invitation using an adorable robot image. Bright primary colors were the perfect color combination for a festive table design.

I went on a mission to find some robots to include in the table decor and found these great vintage looking robots on Robot Island. They actually work too!

Since I have been seeing the bunting design on so many party cakes lately and loving it, I wanted to add it to Blake’s cake. I printed his name on paper. Cut the letters into triangle and hot glued them to floral wire and threaded it through paper straws I purchased on Garnish. Little robot faces also decorated the cake.

I designed the printable tags and the jello cups with with wooden spoons and twine turned out great. The straws and twine were also purchased at Garnish. I love their stuff!

Chocolate dipped pretzels, twizzlers, Hershey Nuggets with robot wrappers, mini crakers, fresh kettle corn and marshmallow pops were also part of the dessert table.

I created custom Hershey bar wrappers and purchased the robot lollipops at Oriental Trading.

The party plates, rubber ducky robot favors and other robot themed favors were also purchased at Oriental Trading. Custom thank you tags were on each favor bag.

Custom water bottle wrappers were wrapped around small bottles of water. They sure needed it after running around for and hour!

Blake and his friends had an amazing time at My Gym. It was the best 4th birthday ever!

Special thanks to Thomas Beaman for the amazing photography.

A FREE set of my Robot printables is exclusively available for download at Hostess with the Mostess. I’m so excited to have been featured again on their amazing party blog!

Asian inspired cupcake tower

I was invited by Cake Central Magazine to create a piece that was Asian inspired.
Instead of a cake, I decided to do a cupcake tower. Since today is the first day of
Chinese New Year, I thought it was the perfect time to post this.

Red cherry blossoms decorated the cupcakes along with some gold dragee pearls.

Chinese fabric was wrapped around the cupcake tower. The cupcake tower
was custom made by the very talented Mike McKinney…who also built my house 🙂

I made a very large paper crane for the cake topper. The laser cut cupcake wrappers
added the perfect touch.

The amazing photography is by Thomas Beaman. Thanks so much for
making everything look so beautiful!
