Big Hero 6- Baymax inspired birthday

Thursday, March 26, 2015

I had so much fun creating the Big Hero 6 birthday party and have so many fun and easy things you can make ahead to make birthday day be a breeze! You can purchase the Big Hero 6 printables here. To say my nephew was excited for his birthday this year would be the BIGGEST understatement! He was so anxiously awaiting his party I thought he would have a heart attack. now lets get to the details of the party....
For the decorations we kept it simple and fun! I had an 36" white balloon and drew a Baymax face on it with our printable FALALALALALALA banner (my favorite saying from the show!)

We have lots of fun signs included in our Big Hero 6 printable collection 
Including this backdrop poster
The cake this time was simple.... I wanted to do marshmallow frosting, but the birthday boy didn't like that idea. So we went with a cream cheese frosting and I put M&M's around it like microbots crawling up the side holding up Baymax.... and of course a dupe large Baymax toy on top
The M&M microbots are really easy to line up and place around the cake. I snapped this photo quickly before we cut into the cake
Baymax sugar cookies and Vanilla wafer "bandaids"
These Baymax cookies are really easy. We just frosted oval sugar cookies with white frosting. Then placed 2 black M&M's for the eyes. Just connect the 2 eyes with a line of black ready made frosting!

Now for things that you can make ahead of time
 Mini takeout boxes filled with "sushi" swedish fish with our printable thank you tag (4 tag designs)
Petri dishes filled M&M "microbots" and our flag printables
printable Baymax coming out of his case filled with candy goodies 
Each of the kids got to select a Big Hero 6 character toy to take home. Marshmallow Baymax come with a fuzzy kitty and Fred comes with Baymax in his box. The kids also really loved Fred!
We had some really fun toy favors. I filled them with:
a mini soccer ball (because Baymax Kicks a socoor ball)
Air head (since he is filled with air)
a splat egg (it was white and oval so I drew eyes to make a Baymax) &
Smiley face paddle balls. 

The kids made up several games with their splat Baymaxes. 
First they threw them on the ceiling and waited for them to drop- that was really fun to watch
Then they all attacked the baymax balloon and took it down.
We also played bowling ball with them to see how far they would go before they got stuck.

The kids had a blast with them!
 Build your own Marshmallow Baymax Rice Krispie treats!
 I made oval rice krispie treats and had marshmallow whipped cream for them to spread all ove rthe body and then attach the marshmallow limbs.
 We had little bags filled with all sizes and shapes of marshmallows for them to be creative with their marshmallow baymaxs
Here are some of my favorite baymaxes they made.
 We tied Baymax to little Peyt to see if she would fly away on the windy day
 We also had a contest to see who could keep their fire ball in the longest. I love these pictures of the kids. They were dying, but having so much fun at the same time!

Magical Mermaid Birthday Party + Mermaid printables

Monday, February 16, 2015

I normally do not redo a theme, as I did a Mermaid party a couple years ago.... but I have a little niece that just LOVES LOVES Mermaids and I just couldn't tell a 2 year old that she couldn't have a Mermaid party! So I did it a little bit different party with new Mermaid printables.
This gorgeous light pink ruffled tulle is from Ruffle Fabric (it will be available in a couple months in 2 colors: light pink and turquoise/mint)
I hung "bubbles" from the ceiling to create a little whimsical effect
With our Mermaid poster in the background
And our Happy Birthday banner across the front of the table.
Chocolate candy shells that the kids filled in little bags. They searched and dug for their favorite colors and shapes with little spoons. (chocolate candy shells available in the shop soon!)
Bags to fill with our favorite (and extremely delicious) candy shells
Sugar Cookie octopus filled in mini galvanized buckets
 Favors were candy filled Sundae cups with a Disney Mermaid toy (a favorite with all the little girls)

My favorite part of the birthday was the Mermaid cake. It turned out perfect! We add sprinkles and chocolate candy shell to the outside rim and sugar cookie Mermaid tails sticking out with our printable Cake topper
 You can see some of the different shell shapes and colors that comes in every package- each one is unique, just like a real shell... only deliciously edible!
We had Sand dollar Snicker-doodles, packaged in a clear bag with our cute Mermaid printable favor toppers.
3 drinks to choose from: Pink Lemonade, Orange Crush and Blue Raspberry. 
Sydney won't let anyone else have any of the Mermaids that were in the favors.... they were her favorite part of her birthday and present. Luck for her, most of her cousins are boys and they didn't care that she wanted all of them!
She even kept them close while eating her cake! She won't let them go!!!
 Everyone else's favorite part were the chocolate candy shells on the cake- they went super fast, as you can see above.
