Robot Birthday Party

 {Featured on A Blissful Nest}
This birthday party theme was chosen by the birthday girl who wanted robots. The printables are all by A Blissful Nest and they provided great inspiration for the cake, cookies and cupcakes. The cupcake toppers were cut with a scalloped cutter and taped onto drink stirrers which are food safe and are easy to cut.

The cake was just for the birthday girl and covered in gears and cogs made from a mold by decoratethecake.com. A mix of fondant and gumpaste is used to fill the molds and then placed in the freezer for a few minutes to set the fine lines of the mold.
The bright yellow wall was a great background and the red chevron table runner made everything pop. The table runner is from Fine Pillow Covers on etsy. I can always find what I need for a party on etsy.    

I hand molded some little screws to give more dimension to the cupcakes. The primary color sprinkles and the gray cupcake liners finished off the look.

Sugar cookies are topped with fondant discs attached with a little icing and a couple of gears are all they need. A dot border is added in icing.

Finding candy in coordinating colors is so easy now that the dessert table trend has become so popular. Party City has an aisle of colored candy to match any party.

The invitation with the gears and chevron detail was perfect for our party.

A little ribbon and candy labels dress up the candy jars. I have a collection of basic shapes and use the same ones over and over. 

The vinyl wall decals are made by Decal Farm on etsy. These went onto the wall easily and came off without damaging the paint. I was able to choose the exact colors I wanted. After the party, some went up in my daughter's room and some were used in the locker at school. The favor bags and favors are from Michael's.

This is how I plan a party because I have fun doing it and going to a little extra effort makes a big difference. It does not take much work to throw a memorable party.
