American Ninja Warrior

So William turned 6 and celebrated with an obstacle course and a blue, black and white themed party.  With the speed of a ninja, I pulled my trusty “kick backside” cutter out to create his party favors.

Hop to It

Ryan wanted her birthday to be centered around jack rabbits.  I did a cookie take on the invitation artwork (sorry I can’t give the artist credit/wish I knew who her/his name!) and added a few embellishments…

I wanted a soft background with lattice work  (those rabbits had me thinking of Mr. MacGregor’s fence but with something sweet for 5 year old girl …). Stencil hero Killer Zebras came through again with just the right touch.

After I flooded the cookie in pink and airbrushed gold sheen (Americolor), I put the base of white royal icing for the bunny (and the black eyes about 4 hours later).  They dried overnight before I added the details with my trusty Rainbow Dust pens.  Luckily I had some purple flowers I had made with leftover icing from another cookie set; they worked perfectly to sync up with the invite design. And the result:

Party Animal

I have a confession. Our eldest turned 25 this week.  Holy time passage!  Look away for a moment and our babies are adults!  Tori has found that lovely balance between working hard and keeping things playful and in perspective.  But, um, the girl does know how to rock a celebration.  With that in mind, I give you her ‘party animal’ birthday set. Hope all your birthday wishes come true, Tori!

Very Oh-MINION-ated

A million more minions. OK.  Not a million.  But many.  Party apparel and blue-green dresses were requested for this young lady’s birthday party.  Packaged as favors (see previous Minion posts for bag and tag look), these girls held their thanks close to their hearts.

Sports Crazy Birthday favors

So Jack goes nuts over all sorts of sports. His birthday invite showcased several balls so, of course, the favors followed suit (follow the bouncing ball?)!  His thoughtful, loving mom even had a T-shirt embroidered specifically for the occasion.  The last picture is a photo of the design from the embroiderer and the matching cookie made for the birthday guy.
