This week's theme was Safari or Jungle themed party:
The mommy to be is having a little boy. This theme was a lot of fun! The cupcakes I made were yellow cake vanilla cupcakes with chocolate pudding and a cream cheese frosting. I used Wilton tip #234 to make the grass. A lot of my guest prefer the cream cheese frosting over the regular frosting and it is so easy to make. The recipe is posted down below.
We bought cheap baby bottles on Amazon and filled them with blue punch. We used chartreuse colored napkins and safety pins to make diapers and fill them with pub mix. To make the diapers fold the napkin in half and then connect all three corners and pin. They look super cute!
Other items we made to go with the theme are the tiger and zebra tails with the big pretzel sticks and the fruit kebabs with green grapes and strawberries. I covered a formula milk can with pretty paper and placed a floral block in it. I bought a wooden Lion that I attached to a skewer then placed them all in the can.
For the thank you giveaway we drizzled animal cookies with the left over orange candy and added banana chips. We placed in a cone shaped bag and tied it with coordinated ribbon.
These were too cute, easy and perfect when on a budget. We played the "Oh Crap" game where guest had to guess what type of candy was melted on the diapers. We also played the game where you guess the size of the mom's waste. We used crepe paper for that game. Hope you found this useful.
