Who’s birthday is it today?? Happy Birthday to YOU! Seriously though, as a mom it seems like there is always somebody’s birthday to celebrate. So we thought it would be super handy to create an oversized “Happy Birthday” poster. I’m keeping this rolled up beside the fridge, where it is easy to whip out and combine with some balloons to create an instant birthday celebration.
As is always the case with babies… time flew far too quickly and Mr. Rockwell recently turned one. Aimée shared a fun rocket worksheet last week that hinted at the party theme we chose, and you might remember the teacher appreciation door I whipped together two days after Rockwell’s party? Well today I’m excited to share all the party pictures.
We often call Rockwell, “Rocket” or “Rocket Man.” I really wish you could see the looks on people’s face when Modette introduces her little brother as, “Rocket Man.” She does this EVERY time someone asks her his name. She says it very seriously with a completely straight face. Their reaction is always a very bewildered, “What?” at which time she repeats a little slower, “Rocket Man.” Then the person always looks at me wondering if I really did name my child Rocket Man. Sometimes I explain; sometimes I don’t.
Obviously I didn’t have to think very hard to decide that a space themed birthday party was in order for Rocket Man’s first birthday. Let’s start with my favorite part — the Rocket Ship High Chair that was made by covering our favorite high chair with tin foil. I cut fringe from orange tissue paper to wrap around the high chair’s tray and covered a pointy party hat with more foil for the birthday boy to wear. We hung this star background behind it all.
Okay, I’m not sure, but I think this might be the LONGEST post in the world…. so be warned. When we shared our Tangled Birthday Party we broke it into several posts, but we found that a lot of people who arrived at our posts from the archives or Pinterest missed some of the ideas so we decided to give you all our Birthday Party ideas inspired by Disney’s Frozen Movie in one, massive post. At least there are lots of pretty pictures…
Let’s begin with the Frozen Party Invitation because of course you need a cute invite to have a Frozen party right? We created this darling snowflake patterned invitation, and I get cold just looking at it! Get the printable Frozen birthday party invitation template personalized with your party details in the Supermom Co-op. For a touch of something extra we added iridescent glitter to the large snowflake on all our invitations.
I get really excited about little things, like the fact that we cut larger paper snowflakes that looked EXACTLY like the snowflake on the Frozen party invite. Anyone else realize how incredibly awesome that is, or am I just a bit crazy?? Be sure to read our tutorial on how to cut a perfect snowflake to see how to work this magic. Wouldn’t it be fun to tuck a folded up snowflake into the envelope with the party invites?
Behold the party table…. see all that snowy goodness, do you feel an icy chill in the air? Are you laughing at me now?? (Can you tell I’m running on very little sleep???)
I can’t help but be giddy about how this turned out. I think we totally nailed the Frozen Birthday Cake. This Snowball Tower Cake looks impressive, but don’t let it fool you — it is super easy to create. Check out our Frozen Birthday Cake tutorial.
We loved Disney’s Frozen movie and were inspired with a bunch of Frozenbirthday party ideas. We have almost got everything ready to share, but today we are offering a sneak peek with this Frozen birthday cake idea and tutorial.
I’ve been calling this delicious tower of snowball goodness Elsa’s Frozen Blizzard Birthday Cake, and although it looks fantastic, it is deceptively easy to pull off. Inspired by the French classic Croquembouche dessert, only our snowball donut tower cake requires NO baking, NO frosting, and it really couldn’t be easier!
My oldest daughter just turned nine, and to celebrate her birthday she wanted to hold a Cupcake War. I don’t think she has ever seen an episode of the Food Network show Cupcake Wars, but she loves the Cake Boss series, and somehow picked up on the “Cupcake Wars” phrase. So we invited over a few of her friends and got baking!
Turns out a Cupcake Wars birthday party is pretty easy to pull off. As far as party decor goes we created a simple “Cupcake Wars” banner and hung some colorful, tissue paper honeycomb balls and fans. (I’m sharing our free printable Cupcake Wars Banner template below). Then we used butcher paper as a tablecloth to make clean up a breeze. We marked the girls’ spots by simply writing their names on the butcher paper with a marker.
With the big kids heading back to school, the little ones at home often feel left out. Today we’re sharing some ideas for a fun playdate inspired by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The movie is being released on Blu-ray/DVD tomorrow (August 27th), so grab a copy and invite your little pals to come along on a visit to the Hundred Acre Woods.
We are sure Pooh would love this Hunny Glazed Popcorn. It’s the perfect thing to snack on while watching the movie, and it’s super easy to make!
