Happy 75th Anniversary, Dumbo!

 “What a blast it was to plan this Dumbo themed circus party! The decor was full of enough whimsy to make us believe elephants really could fly! Every detail, from the three foot tall cake to the circus tent props, paid homage to America’s most beloved baby elephant. The key to pulling off this party was a lot of re-purposing. The backdrop was made from a cardboard box, Ikea pillowcases, and an old Dumbo picture book…who knew all that could turn into a circus tent?! For food, we kept with classic circus treats, and then threw in some corn dogs and salted pretzels for a savory balance. Add some fun backyard circus games, and you have our recipe for a one-of-a-kind fantasmic Dumbo event!

Pretty Panda Party

What's black, white, and cute all over? 
This panda party, of course! 

The birthday girl had big dreams of being a panda nanny when she grows up, and wanted all things panda. So pandas she got! We did an Asian inspired dessert table, with cake, cookies, cupcakes, and more! All of the kids got their very own pair of panda ears to wear, and they each got to "adopt" a panda to take home, complete with "panda food" and adoption certificates--so fun! Then, for activities we played a bamboo stacking game with pool noodles and had a panda ball belly race! But my favorite party element had to be the birthday girl's smile at the end of the day. It made all of the prep work worth it!

Check it out!
