General update-Monster post

I haven’t been able to write a blog post but I have been crafting. I’ve been preparing for my friend’s birthday which has been a little labor intensive.

I decorated goody bags. They were just plain bags from Joann’s and I glued wrapping paper on it to fit her them. They have pixie dust and marshmallow Mickey heads for favors. I wasn’t able to get a picture of the Mickey heads out of their wrappers because they were devoured.

I made the party hats with Mickey ears. The original idea came from here. I adjusted it to include the Mickey ears. All the stuff to make these came from the dollar store. I bought one pack of 8 regular sized part hats ($1) in 4 colors(silver, gold, green, and red), Two packs of headbands, they came four in a pack of assorted colors ($2) and one sheet of black posterboard ($1). I used hot glue to attach the hats to the headband and I used my X-acto knife to cut slits in hat to place the ears.

And I made two types of cupcakes: Orange poke cake with vanilla cream frosting and Cinnamon cupcakes with cinnamon sugar cream cheese frosting.

I helped her make the Pom Pom poufs Saturday night. This is the dining room set up with the poms.

And also the living room decor with poms.

The party was lovely with a 1950’s vintage Disney theme. I will have to get back to my regular schedule now with a daily post. 🙂 I’ll have to post links later.
