My two kids ages 7 and 4 asked for a Halloween party this year, being a mom who loves parties and Halloween how could I resist.  We decided on a Monster theme and over a month a crafted all of the party favors and decorations.  I also made all of the desserts.


These are some of the 40 handmade stuffed monsters that I made as party favors.  Each kiddo got to take one home.

3  Halloween Window Clings in Halloween Decor and Parties by Blackstitches on: October 25, 2011 09:49:59 AM

My husband has been wanting to make his own window clings based on Ed Emberley art forever.  This year he actually went out and bought the blackout film and set to work.  About a week later our bay window was covered in these awesome images just in time for Halloween.


I wrote up a little tutorial here: http://diylouisville.blogspot.com/2011/10/halloween-window-clings-tutorial.html

5  Bubble Gum Themed 7th Birthday in Party Planning by Blackstitches on: June 27, 2011 07:52:28 AM
This year my daughter decided she wanted a bubble gum themed birthday party.  So after a few months of crafting and gum hoarding this is what I came up with!



This is the entire dessert table


Dessert table different angle


Cake made by me, buttercream with fondant and gumball decorations.  The topper was a wooden 7 that I spray painted and glued gumballs too.


gumball cookies, I dipped oreos in bright colored candy melts and then added a white chocolate highlight


some of the cupcakes, the topper for the stand was found at Joanns.


The other gumball machine cupcakes


some of the gum


a close up of the background I made.  It's just foamboard covered in wrapping paper.  the 7 is made of cardboard covered in crepe paper fringe


Dining table centerpiece,  I made the gumball machine out of a flower pot, ivy bowl and saucer.  The welcome sign was made in photoshop.  The balloons are punchballs we gave out to the kids.


The favors were baby food jars that we spray painted the lids red, filled with gumballs and topped with a label made in photoshop.

If you would like to see even more pictures of the party you can check out my blog here:http://diylouisville.blogspot.com/2011/06/bubble-gum-birthday-party.html

6  Guy Party in Party Planning by Blackstitches on: March 29, 2011 06:30:31 AM

So a while back my friend and I started thinking, guys rarely get parties.  Girl's, we have them all the time, showers, tea parties, cocktails, just because.  So we decided to throw a just because party for the boys. We sat up a really cute buffet with snack food, salty sweet cupcakes, popcorn, pretzel sliders, salsa's, mustard dips and beer.  We used lots of wood and burlap to make it more manly Smiley  You can get all of the recipes and tutorials on our blog: http://diylouisville.blogspot.com/2011/03/diy-louisville-party-for-boys.html

7  Bunny Lunch in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Blackstitches on: March 29, 2011 06:23:09 AM

My kids are super excited about the movie Hop that comes out this week and since I promised to take them on Friday, I thought why not celebrate the entire week with bunny themed surprises.  Yesterday's was a bunny lunch.  I cut a peanut butter sandwich on pumpernickel bread into a bunny shape using a cookie cutter, added a marshmallow cut in half for the tail, a white circle sprinkle for the eye, a heart shaped sprinkle for the nose and chocolate jimmies for the whiskers.  The face details and tail were held on with peanut butter.  I used some curly lettuce for a little bed and then baby carrots for the bunny's snack.  My kids thought this was great and it would be perfect for Easter too.  You can see more on my blog: http://diylouisville.blogspot.com/2011/03/hop-long-day-one.html

8  Girl Scout Cookie Inspired Cupcakes in Dessert by Blackstitches on: March 07, 2011 05:24:02 AM
To celebrate the arrival of Girl Scout Cookie Time, we decided to recreate two of our favorite cookies in cupcake form.

The Tag a Long cupcake has a shortbread crust, peanut butter cake and rich chocolate icing.



The Thin Mint Cupcake has a Mocha Brownie Cake, chocolate topping and mint buttercream. 



We topped them both off with their namesake cookie and sprinkles to match the box.
Step by step tutorials can be found on our blog along with the recipes.

10  D.I.Y. Dessert Table on a Budget in Valentine's Day by Blackstitches on: February 11, 2011 03:50:26 AM

On Wednesday my friend Julee and I threw a little surprise Valentine's party for the kids after school.  We put together a red and white themed party for under 30 dollars.  The best part is the almost everything was store bought, even the cake and cupcakes were from a mix.  So this party was cheap and quick to throw together.  We wrote up a detailed post about everything at our blog: http://diylouisville.blogspot.com/2011/02/diy-dessert-table-on-budget.html

Here are some of the features of the party

Red soda, that we decorated with scrapbook paper


cupcakes with suckers for toppers


strawberries filled with cheesecake filling


red velvet cake decorated with store bought candy on skewers

Thanks for looking-Kim
