On the weekend my nephew shared his first birthday party with our little man, who is 2 at the end of the month. They had a monster theme, and my sister made all the decorations and the lolly bags. I baked and decorated the cakes. It was so much fun!

Ok, so this is what it all looked like. I used coloured metal buckets, paper doilies, glass jars, streamers and tissue paper from the local discount stores; a cupcake stand borrowed from my sister; a chrome 2 tier cake stand I got on eBay; and a glass cake stand that belonged to my husbands Nanna.

The cake board is just a standard one that I purchased a few years ago. Every time I use it, I cover it to suit the theme. This time I have used wrapping paper, and clear contact. It is also sitting on an upturned serving bowl.

For fun and games we had a Rainbow Pinata that was hanging in the garage. We were going to hang it up outside, but it rained ­čśŽ We also had a home-made ‘pin the cloud on the rainbow’ that was a hit!

 

 

 

So, we had Miss 5’s party last weekend, and it was a huge success. I had everything so organised, that I was literally just making some last minute adjustments the morning of the party, and we were ready at ;east an hour before everyone arrived.

In the week leading up to the party, I created various labels in Microsoft Excel for the drinks, and lollipop favours etc. I also made some for the food, that I ended up not using, as with our table decorations I felt it may have been a bit over the top.

The labels were super easy to create thanks to this wonderful tutorial over at I Heart Organising.

These are all the labelsI created for you to download if you wish. Just click on the links to go to the Excel documents, then you can play around with the fonts and colours as you please.

The Organised Housewife

Today was my nieces 4th birthday party, and I have to say, my sister did an awesome job putting it all together. The theme was Minnie Mouse in pink, black, and zebra print. It looked fantastic! So good in fact, that I got a heap of (pretty darn average, sorry!) photos to share!

Inside, a buffet table was set up with all the food and decorations.



This gorgeous table centrepiece was made from a pink tin bucket, some fake flowers, pipe cleaners, ribbon, and polystyrene balls that were painted black and sprinkled with glitter. So cute!

Pretty jars were filled with lollies, and everyone got to fill a little pink box to take home.

Themed balloons, so cool!


And the cake! This was my sister’s first time using fondant, and it was left over from the monster high cake I made my daughter. I think it looks amazing!

And the inside looked pretty darn good too. 1 chocolate cake, with a coloured butter cake on top. It was a bit of a hit ­čÖé
