Hip Hip Hooray, It’s Your Kid’s Birthday!

Growing up, birthdays were always a big deal.  There were piñatas, overly decorated cakes, and lots of family.  We also had the occasional bounce house.  The point being, kids in my family were spoiled when it came to birthday parties — they still are.  And why shouldn’t they be?  Kids look at the world with such awe and wonder, even the tiniest details seem to bring them joy and fill them with fascination.  That’s what makes planning their birthday parties so much fun.  As an adult, I love seeing their reaction to all the little things that they come across.

I think my favorite part of planning my own birthday parties with my mom was picking out the theme and all the decorations to go with it.  Which is part of the reason why I was so excited for the launch of our MOD Pattern Kid’s Birthday Party Favors.  Event Blossom now has an entire section just for kids, so grab that special tyke in your life and get planning together!

Start off by browsing our variety of Kid Birthday designs and choosing from one of the many popular themes such as pirates or princesses.

Then, coordinate pieces from our selection of party favors and accessories.  Start with our Milk Bottles to serve your kiddo’s favorite drink, like hot cocoa or lemonade:

Don’t forget dessert!  Cupcakes are easy to bake and even easier to eat.  Decorate them with personalized Cupcake Wrappers and Toppers:

As a parting gift and lasting memento, fill some of our Sweet Shoppe Candy Boxes or Candy Tubes with your child’s favorite candies, treats, and small toys.

Whatever combination you choose to accessorize your kid’s birthday party, remember that it’s not about styling a perfect event; it’s about making memories.  Years from now, when you’re planning their Sweet Sixteen or graduation party, they’ll probably still remember how they got to help you pick out all the fun stuff for their Wild West Shindig or Circus Extravaganza.

Happy Party Planning!

Calling All Superheroes!

Admit it.  You have put on a cape and pretended to be a superhero at least once in your life.  Maybe you even managed to get up to the roof of your house and attempted to fly in which case, I hope that the evil geniuses known as “mom” or “dad” managed to foil your flight plans.  Now that we’re all grown up, it’s probably been quite some time since we put on the ol’ cape and mask.  That doesn’t mean we can’t be a hero every now and again.  Save the day at your kid’s next birthday party with these awesome favors requiring only 2 (that’s right, two) things.

  1. MOD Kid’s Birthday Candy Tubes (EB2300MDK – labels shown in Tangerine, with the Stars Pattern Design and ZAP Kid Design)
  2. Colored Old Fashioned Rock Candy (found at a candy store or you can play mad scientist and make your own using this recipe)

All I did was smash up the rock candy and mix the colors just to make the candy tubes pop a little more.  Now, you just have to decide what they’re used for.  Whether they’re a storage for superhero powers or the secret to defeating evil, theses sweet favors are sure to be a hit with the little ones.  To add to your super party, get more Mod Pattern Kid’s Birthday Favors to match.
Now, go whip out that old superhero suit and join in on the fun!

Make Way for the Princesses!

Throwing a party for the little princess in your life?  Every fairytale has a little magic to it and you can add a bit of that to your child’s birthday party with the help of a:

Magic Wand!

 These fun favors are quick and easy.  Here’s what you need:

  • Candy Tubes (EB2300) Example shows: EB2300MDK in Strawberry Pink, Flower Lattice Pattern, and Princess Design
  • Strips of colored fabric approximately 10″ in length
  • Variety of pink ribbon cut into strips that are the same length as the fabric
  • Hot glue gun
  • *Optional: glitter

After acquiring all of my supplies, I gathered pieces of fabric and ribbon together into a little bunch.  You can make these as thick or as thin as you’d like (I like the look of a thicker bunch myself).  Then, I took one more piece of ribbon and tied the bunch together.  You want to tie them as close to the bottom as possible.  Using the hot glue gun, I glued the bottom of the bundle to one of the caps.  Simple as that — just add glitter!

These favors also make a fun activity.  You can lay out all the supplies (minus the hot glue gun — that job is probably best left to adults) and let the little princesses create their own wands!

If you haven’t noticed, I’m having a blast with our new favors.  Just take a look at last week’s twitter spree with the milk bottles.  I know, the product launch was last week, but that doesn’t mean we’re done celebrating!  I’ve got more candy tube ideas coming your way this week.

What will I do with these next???
