My friend and creative mom genius, Julie, throws some of the best birthday parties in our neighborhood, and I love seeing what she comes up with year after year.
The theme this year was Angry Birds which included their rivals, the green repugnant pigs. Together you could have some verde eggs and ham, but I digress.
Approaching the party, one could almost audibly hear every caw, cluck and cackle upon arrival to an array of indignant birds hanging out in the shady trees. Julie downloaded and printed out bird and pig faces and then pasted the bird faces to themed colored paper plates, and the pig faces to matching colored cups.
The birds might have been angry and the pigs put in their place, but the guests were impressed and happy!
Below are some pics of the party scene. Unsuspecting Angry Bird piñata got a taste of his own medicine when he took some pretty hard hits by many excited children.
Julie made her own deliciously decorated cupcakes and her dad clamped a hand made sling for a stuffed angry bird to be slung into a stack of green cups with pig faces on the front. Again, I could hear those obnoxious pigs laughing and snorting but it was not for long! The adults, along with the children, had a blast slinging their squawking angry bird in the mist of those mocking pigs and watching them fall down. This game was a big hit!
Instead of party bags, every child received their very own stuffed Angry Bird; which cut down on all the party favors that usually end up spread out all over house and vehicle. They serve as a fun soft memory; just remind children they cannot be thrown in car while mom or dad is driving home. (That didn't happen with the Angry Bird, but we did have a large stuffed penguin fly at us from the backseat one time.) Good reminder for children in learning car safety rules and for us; we learned that penguins can indeed fly if they are thrown, but again, I digress.
These crafted decorations where bright, comical and added the perfect touch to the Angry Bird themed birthday party. They were easy to assemble with a short supply list: red and yellow, black and white paper plates, twine, hole puncher, paste and cut out printable faces (lots of free downloadable pics to choose in google search).
Special thanks to my friend, Julie, for allowing me to share her creative ideas with humble and bold's readers. Hope you enjoyed the pictures and peaceful chirping to you!
