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
