The boys 5th birthday has long passed, but I definitely wanted to post about in the blog. We left for Disney just three days after the party and life just gets busy sometimes. Their birthday is right after Christmas so you'll see some Christmas decorations lingering. Without further ado...the handmade Angry Birds party 2012.
The boys decided back in October that they wanted an Angry Birds party. There wasn't much to order online or to buy in stores so I had to improvise. I bought some colored card stock and got to work. I cut each eye, beak, eyebrow, tail etc. myself and glued it all together the old fashioned way. It took many man hours, but it was a labor of love. The boys were really excited about the whole process which just made every bit of it worth it.
Luckily the boys received the Angry Bird pillows as a Christmas gift from their Auntie so they also doubled as party decorations. The yellow angry bird behind them is actually a balloon that popped. No worries though, we just re purposed him as a wall decoration.
Jake's favorite bird was the green boomerang bird so he picked that bird to be on his cake. Anderson liked the blue bird. To each his own bird. I had the cakes locally made by someone. The birds were made of fondant so the boys were able to gobble them up.
We set up a little angry birds vignette on the cabinet ledge above our stove.
I ordered some Angry Bird balloons from eBay. They came all the way from Malaysia!
Hope you enjoyed peaking in on our party!!!
