I know I’m a little late when it comes to sharing Nolan’s birthday party with everyone and I can’t believe I forgot to even share. We had such an amazing time at his birthday and did some amazing DIY to get the party rolling. I actually didn’t spend much on making everything and I personally think it turned out great. The kids all had so much fun, which is the important thing. We were a bit worried they would get bored, as we were looking into bouncy castle hire perth after seeing some amazing ones online, but decided we didn’t have the money for it this year. However, the kids had fun all day long. We’ve started talking about what he wants to do for his next birthday. Some ideas include visiting an indoor play center and having a party at home where he can invite some of his friends. He’s already so excited. But we have plenty of time to plan that and we’re sure it’ll be as amazing as this birthday.
Anyway, back to the cake. It was a simple cake box mix. What I did was color my whipped frosting and simply lined out my mask and smile and started dotting.
This is Nolan my now 5 year old. I know, I know I was rocking the mask that I made. These were simple as well. I went to Walmart, picked out the right color fabric that I wanted and just cut circles for the eyes. I think I ended up spending five dollars all together on 26 masks. Not to shabby.
Now for the fun party. The layout and goody bags. This was actually quite simple. I bought some green napkins and purple, red and blue party streamer that I actually got at the Dollar Tree along with my brown paper baggies and plastic forks. For the forks I wrapped them as shown above. Took me 5 minutes and turned out great for what I wanted.
For the paper baggies I did the same thing. I did add some fun googly eye that was actually the most expensive party of the party favors. As for the puzzles next to it for the kids I also bought at the Dollar Tree.
