Cupcake Themed Birthday Party

We recently helped a friend style her daughter's 2nd birthday party.  The birthday girl's Mom made adorable invites out of scrapbook paper and we took it from there, centering the entire party.  She had left over paper which we used for the majority of the decor.  With that, the party ended up being a handmade birthday party inspired by the look of the scrapbook paper.  We didn't want the scrapbook paper to go to waste and it was a good way to save some money.  You will find that we always take the oppurtunity to save a few bucks. The bunting, food signs, and the welcome sign were all created from the scrapbook paper.

Cupcake liners were placed on a wire along with the welcome sign that greeted the guests as they entered the party. Such simple and unique thing to play off of the theme.

Instead of serving a cake, guests were able to chose between two desserts, cake push pops and a build your own cupcake station. Everyone was able to pick which type of frosting and toppings they wanted, pleasing guests both young and old.

Dara found the centerpiece idea from Pinterest which fit perfectly with the theme. The centerpieces were made to look like hot air balloons using a cupcake in replacement of the basket. Scrapbook paper, cupcake liners and ribbon were used to adorn the balloon.
