Kiddos } Green Army Man Birthday Sweets & Papery

It's all snails and puppy dog tails around here most of the time since I have a son. For my little guy's 6th birthday bash it was all about the green. Green Army Men that is!!

With, of course, my buds at Sweet Cakes by Rebecca we created a table that was the envy of every boy at Golfland Sunsplash in Roseville two weekends ago. Lasertag and all ... the boys had an absolute blast!

The cake! Can I just begin with the cake? Is that cake not amazing??? Our birthday inspiration began with the little green Lego army men from Toy Story 3 and their jeep. And in true Sweet Cakes fashion they took it to a whole new level. Jeep Cake, Chocolate Cake Pops, Medallion Sugar Cookies, Gummy Army Guys ... ummmm, awesome!!

And it wouldn't be a SJD party without papery & all the little details! I accessorized the sweets with star medallion tags, green army men, table decor, balloons, dog tags at each place setting, cracker jack bags, favor bags, paratroopers, camouflage details ... and more! Came up with theme inspired names for the sweets ... like Cracker Bullets for the Cracker Jacks, Chocolate Cake Grenades for the cake pops, Atomic Sugar Cookies for the cookies ... those were fun to think up!

The invite was really fun ... we actually hand delivered them to all the guests! I stuffed little camo canteens with draft notices that gave all the party particulars. Finished off the canteens with a little dog tag ... complete with each guest's name.

Complete theme party packages are available!!! Give us a ring!

Inspired } Valentine's Day Papery - Custom Accordion Hearts, Pennant, Soda Labels, Dessert Flags

What a fun inspired Valentine's Day shoot I worked on with 2 Chic Events & Design, Jacqueline Photography and Sweet Cakes by Rebecca last week! Check out Jacqueline's Blog for all the photo fabulousness.

Yours truly created the soda labels/tags, paper accordion hearts {these were sooooo cute! - will post more pics of what I did with them after the shoot}, "Be Mine" pennant/banner, paper heart medallions on the pinwheels, paper pom poms and dessert flags & confetti.

I was inspired by little Emily's argyle tights! Wanted to coordinate with those but not in a matchy-matchy way by brining in argyle again. Soooo, I went for a black and white damask pattern accented by bright red and a harlequin dark red on red pattern.

Besides loving those accordion hearts ... the tags for the soda bottles were my next fav! Thought it was just the icing on the cake pop! :) {Side note on the cake pops ... heaven on a stick!}

All the papery items shown are customizable and available to order for your event! Email us at stephanie@stephaniejdesigns.com for pricing and details.
