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!


  1. Thanks Jackie!!! We had sooooo much fun creating everything!

  8. hi, britney! we held the party at a laser tag facility to keep the kids busy. :) the kids were given "dog tags" at each place setting {they loved this!}, goodie bags to grab-up the candy snacks that were set around the table when they left {paratroopers, green gummy army men, jelly beans, cracker jacks}. hope you have a great party!!

  9. Seriously SUCH a cute idea! Thanks so much for answering my questions! Truly inspiring :)
