Our sweet little cousin, Ally, celebrated her 4th birthday this past weekend. Her mom, Melissa, was nice enough to let me contribute a few treats and decor. The original plan was for me to make the cupcakes, but I kept adding little projects and ended up with this.
(I snapped these pictures at home before I packed up for their house.)
Ally wanted a “snow” theme party, so I tried to stick with white, light blue, and silver.
I love these tissue paper pom poms, and think they make a nice addition. To learn how to make them, click here. The bird is just saying hi; he’s a holiday ornament I didn’t want to put away. It was so funny trying to take his picture. He kept swaying around, snubbing me.
Melissa came over in December to help make hair bows to use as cupcake toppers. She picked this great white and silver snowflake ribbon. It definitely set the tone for the rest of the party.
I also made dark chocolate coconut cupcakes for the adults. I thought the coconut looked a little like snowballs.
And I couldn’t resist throwing a few fondant snowmen on, too. They are so sweet. Literally.
- Painting Ally’s name
- Popcorn balls covered in white chocolate
- Pretzels rods covered in white chocolate
Purchased from the store:
- White heart cookies. I had bigger plans for these, but they were so pretty I opted to keep them plain.
- Hershey Kisses
- White chocolate covered pretzels
All in all, I think it turned out pretty well. Many, many thanks to Melissa for allowing me to use Ally’s party as a creative outlet.
Happy Birthday, Ally!
