|I have been wanting to do a cake bunting for a while now, love how it looks in these bright colors! Oh, and that is my new cake plate...Home Goods where have you been all my life?!?!?!|
For the placemats I went to the fabric store just thinking I was going to buy some green felt to cut and use and then I saw this AMAZING trim that was perfect! I love how they turned out! A couple of weeks ago I found a post on The White Library (which is amazing by the way!) where she incorported paper plates into the place settings! I love how this added great pattern and color to the black plates that we used, but felt like it also helped to keep the dinner a little more casual. I think one of my favorite things that we made were duct tape flowers. Jacob has a pretty big obsession with duct tape (not quite sure I get it, but I decided to go with it), so when I found this green duct tape I decided that making these would be a more personal touch than using fresh flowers on the table.
|As you probably know I have a slight obsession with cake pops, so they were a must! Bought some cute little pots from the Target $1 section and added some green crinkle paper that I have a huge bag of and have no idea where it came from ?|
|Coordinating drink...a must! Think this was Jacob's favorite thing!|
|Most of these got eaten before I snapped a pic, they were sooo good!|
|The inside of the cake...two layer homemade "Pink" Velvet cake with homemade neon green frosting!|
|The birthday boy, well more like a young man now...such an AMAZING kid!!!!|
