Well done!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / WOODLAND TWIN 1st BDAY!!! on: February 11, 2012 07:07:48 AM
So it has been over 18 months since I posted. Had two little people keeping me too busy to really craft much, but I did decide to throw them, by Australian standards, a fair sized 1st bday bash.
Little man spent a couple of months in hospital, so to me it was even more important to celebrate a birthday we thought he might never make!

It took me ages to come up with a gender neutral theme. I decided on woodland theme and tried for weeks to draw my own invites, but failed miserably. I browsed the web and came up with a shadow idea, and then the background came from my love of mushrooms.

So the invites were born!!

Im wishing we had hired a photographer. The thing im saddest about is not really having many photos.
The desserts table! The most important thing!!

Some of the things on it were...

Turtle cupcakes!

Woodland berry jelly.. this was all natural.. so the littles one could enjoy too.

Rabbit food (carrotcake cupcakes)

Owl cupcakes

Flower meadow (timtam cake pops)

Mushroom cookies


Deer poo! (mango covered chocolate)

My daughters cake.
Gluten free Dairy Free Orange and Almond cake with an almond butterless buttercream!

My sons cake
Lime Buttercream Madeira Cake
The mushrooms and carrots were made out of fondant, there are edible rocks and the figurines are Schleich. They will be getting them back when they are a little older Smiley

There was also little tiramisus in glasses, snakes on cupcakes and a chocolate fountain as my "Mud swamp"

To decorate we got 100 helium red and white polka dot. I had to import them from UK! We hired a local hall in the forest and had around 60 adults and 25 kids come.
I made the tissue balls from the Martha Stewart website.. man tissue paper is expensive in australia!
For table cloths I went to our local party hire and got their cheapest table cloths ($2) and got a roll of 20 metres of wrapping paper in red and white polka dot and cut it to lenght to dress them up.
Happy birthday sign came from vistaprint and it was FREEEEEEEEEEEEE with just $8 shipping.
There are also butterflies we made that we dont have pics of, and we copied the animals from the invites to black contact and cut them out. We stuck those on walls randomly.
Found some red lanters and drew polka dots on them with a white posca.
I made both their tshirts too!

They had a great day, considering they had both had bronchitis and tonsillitis that week it was a wonder they made it to their own bday!

Blowing out candles...
