I finally got around to putting some of my ideas in motion for Dax’s 2nd birthday party. I’m so very glad that it’s not until October though, there’s still so much I want to do!
I went to party city and picked up some colorful little buckets. Then I made some faces in Illustrator- Brobee, Plex, and Muno. I printed them out on adhesive paper, cut them out, and viola! I’ll probably put candy and treats in these on the tables, since it will be Halloween =D
Even though the theme is Yo Gabba Gabba, I do still want to heavily incorporate Halloween into it. I decided to use the characters in their costumes for the cupcake toppers, and I really think they came out cute.
I also used the same digital faces from the buckets and put them on a plastic banner made of solid color flags. It’s 15ft wide, and has Brobee, Plex, Toodee, and Muno. Sorry, no Foofa!
Next up are the favor bags. I picked up some small orange canvas totes, and made some large tags for them. Complete with Pirate Brobee =D
I bought crayons boxes for the bags, and added stickers to the front of the boxes. I also made the stickers in Illustrator/ Photoshop.
I’m planning on adding some Muno chocolate covered pretzels, similar to the ones seen here. His head and large eye will be popping out of the top of the favor bag- hehe.
Every party needs balloons right? I’ll probably use the same sticky faces on the balloons, as well as on some paper lanterns. These are from GabbaFriends.com:
I’ve secretly been obsessing over Poms. Well, this was my excuse to make some, and although I’m not completely satisfied with the results yet- it was fun! Even if I don’t make some for the party, I’d like to hang some white and purple poms in my studio.
Dax was going crazy all day watching my aunt and I create all of this stuff. He kept saying ‘Muno, muno, muno!” and it was so cute. I decided to see what he will look like as Muno. Cute right?
