What's a Mud Pie Bakery without chef hats?
No hobbit party would be complete without a bunch of hairy-footed littled halflings running around.
This was definitely my favorite favor from the fete, and I'm so glad that so many of the little kids loved them and wore them, too.
Continuing the theme from yesterday's post, today is a tutorial on how to make a simple (but completely enchanting) felt Peter Pan/Robin Hood hat.
I made these dashing caps for One Stone Event's clever Feathers and Arrows fairy tale mash-up party.
I'm back! Or rather, my computer is back! And mostly functional, after two and a half weeks of being in the shop. I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best at this point. But as long as it's up and running, I'm taking advantage of it and posting again, hooray!
The favors from the Balloons party for Festivities magazine are my favorite to date.
I recently made some surfboard cookies for a little boy who was turning four and having a luau themed pool party.
I was pretty happy with how they turned out, but what I really loved was how I decided to package them up.
I love making the favors match the theme of a party. And I love making or buying special favors, rather than just giving out plastic junk that's going to be thrown out at the first opportunity. At the Sprinkles birthday party, that meant sprinkle jewelry!
Making your own mock archaeological dig for a party, school, or scout project? Potsherds are a fabulous thing to include. Easy to make, incredibly inexpensive (about $1 for a whole bunch of pottery bits), and authentic enough to make your young diggers feel like real archaeologists!
I end up buying fabric for most parties I throw--for various crafts and decor--and end up with inevitable scraps. I'm always fighting the battle between not wanting something to go to waste and wanting to de-clutter. Here's a project that will help you use up some of those fabric scraps and feel resourceful, rather than slightly disappointed in yourself when you throw the fabric in the trash bin.
No gnome party would be complete without fluffy white beards--even if the party is for all girls!
