The Partiologist: Birthday Party Part II

Birthday Party Part II

Believe it or not, there is MORE to Mable and Molly's party!  So much fun creating this serving table along with the festive beverages!

Birthday Party Table

Here's a little space that I filled with wine glasses I thought would be appropriate for a birthday party. 

I used little foam balloon letters, glued ribbon to the ends and made a glass for Mable and a glass for Molly, plus glasses for everyone else that spelled out Happy Birthday. 

Again, I just stuck them to the wine glasses and popped them off after the party. 

I called this "Birthday Bubbles"!


I almost didn't get a photo of these little desserts before they melted..

They were called "Birthday Surprise" - a whipped cream cheese mixture with chopped candy bars and apples inside and of course topped with sprinkles!

Next were more drinks - started with a key lime margaritas and topped them with different colored sanding sugar, which melted into the drinks and changed the color. 

I used punch cups to serve this in and cut some straws in half to fit the cup.

There were so many things that I wanted to make, I decided to make a little bit of each. 

I had to use these cute pinwheels for stir sticks, here are the "Pineapple Pinwheel" drinks I created.

And of course I always have plenty H2O on hand and make that as special as any other drink.

Remember those crazy straws?

Well, they're still crazy and it made my water crazy too!

Mable and Molly requested some of their favorite foods ~

And a very easy table decoration were the bright candles - although I could NOT find orange candles and I searched everywhere!! 

I'll stock up next Halloween!

Since it WAS a birthday party we had to play a game, and what better game to play than pin the tail on the donkey! 

Yes, I got some grown women to play, but only because I had prizes!

Of course I had to send everyone home with a little treat from the party, Mable and Molly's favorite, Red Velvet Cupcakes. 

I tied them in little bags with a party horn and curling ribbon attached. 

The cupcakes were topped with a giant gumball and displayed on a cupcake tree.

On behalf of Mable and Molly, thank you for taking the time to let them share their party with you! 

Don't you wish you were a statue????  Life's A Party!
