Well, it is party day! C has been non stop about it for days and he was most excited to wake up this morning to get this party started! Sadly, no one is arriving until 4pm!
This is what my buffet looked like yesterday morning, more supplies came upstairs after this, but as you can see, it was getting a little crowded!
Last night I tackled the "cake"....Ok so many people chimed in on getting ROYAL BLUE frosting, but after 2 trips to different Michaels I gave up and used simple ol' food coloring. It was not as ROYAL as I would have liked but after using my little tube of blue and my neighbors (all at 8:00pm) this is as blue as I could get it....After awhile it was simply NOT changing colors.
So I gave up and just started creating. I have a new respect for those of you who love to decorate cakes. This was NOT easy and took patience (which I do not have a lot of!) The finished product is chillin the fridge until party time! (You'll have to wait and see!)
This morning M took the boys to run errands and pick up another request of dear C...>Balloons. I asked him weeks ago and he showed no interest. Last night he chimed in that he wanted FIVE balloons...Off they went to Party City and I started "doing the decorating". Here is what I got done without assistance!
The sign that greets our guests....A last minute idea from the birthday boy. Thanks to urban fonts and having a LEGO font that was perfect! I once again cut each letter out.....We will hang this in the playroom after the party!
Then the goody bags and one game table....
The bags are filled with a LEGO bookmark that we made, a collectible LEGO man and LEGO candy. Nothing crazy, because the LEGO men were not the usual cheap stuff you get from parties. I know my boys will love getting the guys!
This is one of the guess the LEGO's in the bucket games. We have two. Again I used the LEGO font to make out the sheets for the kids. FOr those who cannot write, we will help them. My boys are dying to know how many...I will never tell....(23 and 19! HA!)
Between the party for kids starting at 4pm and the adults arriving at 5:30 for pizza and cake we will have a fun night with some of our close neighborhood friends.....I am actually looking forward to sitting down with a glass of wine shortly after the younger guests eat! :)
