I have a uni exam coming up the same week as DS's first birthday party. So I have decided to postpone the party for a week or so - and also in the hope the weather will be better, February is notorious for scorching hot days here in Adelaide, and this year is a hot summer.
Any suggestions for a nice theme?
I tend to just buy plain paper plates and cups etc, rather than going over board in buying all of that stuff, otherwise it gets very expensive. Instead I like to make cupcakes and or biscuits in the theme (see my previous posts about rubber ducky party and penguins).
So any suggestions or hints on what theme I should do & how to make the cupcakes, cake pops or biscuits.
Dinosaurs, Aeroplanes? I could do a rubber ducky theme again. I could do lions or another animal. I tend to really like Elephants. Maybe I could do an Elephant theme.
So any suggestions on how to make Elephant Cakepops, and Elephant Cupcakes???
Maybe I could use Banana lollies for a trunk & then two big freckles or button chocolates for the Elephant ears. Would a snake lolly be better as a trunk than a banana lolly?
I am procrastinating thinking about his party rather than studying for my uni exam, but I know that if I have thought it all through and have my ideas, it makes it much quicker when I come to make it all.
Any ideas or comments - I would love to hear them, so please comment or email me with your suggestions.
With 4 children, working and studying, I will be very busy so I won't have a lot of time to spend figuring it all out. But #4 is just as special as all the others and so I want to do some special things for his 1st birthday just like I did for the others.
I have just found this tim-tam-colosseum on Chocolatesuze's site. Gosh Chocolate suze has some awesome things. Maybe I could try this for DS's 1st Birthday. Maybe a little smaller than hers was.
Maybe I could work on that theme..... a timtam zoo with elephant and lion cupcakes inside????? I will keep thinking up things.
