It's not just a moon, it's a blue moon, once in a blue moon...
Our white and blue themed party last Saturday night was a total blast!
As always I'm in charge of the decorations, it's a Smurf theme but the celebrant wanted pompoms (the ones I made for my friends' wedding last year) so I mixed the elegant looking pompoms with the smurf theme hehehe
The hanging garlands around the chandelier were circle punched papers stitched together using my sewing machine. I'm loving the effect!
But the center of attraction was the Smurf topsy turvy cake by my friend Jinky! Finally she's back to baking! See more of her creations at her blog the Sweet Lyf This cake was baked with sooo much love! Can't imagine how difficult it is to create such a master piece. All 3 layers were made with real cakes, top layer was strawberry cream cheese, mid layer was a mix of white and brown chocolate, and the base was chocolate. The mushroom and all smurfs except Vanity (on top) were handcrafted using fondant.
The cupcakes were also oh so yummy, tastes like Whammos! I printed the smurf head image and punched with circle punch accented with small prima flowers to make as cake toppers. The flower sprinkles were made from fondant, my first time to play with fondant and oh boy it wasn't easy!
fortune kisses but time was not on my side LOL.
The banner was also handmade using blue plastic plates and hand-cut letters.
I sew smurf hats adapting the concept from this link. I added a flower for Vanity hat, used red felt for Papa Smurf and added a blonde curly wig for Smurfette. I scored additional props from Daiso, like the mirror for Vanity and the spectacles for Brainy Smurf! Here are the sample photos we took the night before the party heehee
The guests also had fun with the photo booth! Who says playing dress-up is only for kids...here are some of the fun photo booth takes at the party!
Is this fun or what!
