Toy Story 3 Party
So I’m waaaay overdue on sharing this with you. Like 3 months. I’m trying to be better at posting and not just collecting great stuff to share with you. I apologize. I’ll be better. But this was worth the wait. Promise.
The Princess Cupcake was invited to an over-the-top cool Toy Story Party for her friend Drew. And Drew’s mommy is… how do I explain sheer craft godliness? Hmmm. She might could (that’s the Louisiana way of saying maybe could) have her own show and I can’t believe she’s not blogging for realz. (Comment below and maybe we’ll force her into a guest post or two? Hint, hint?) Everything she touches turns to magic. In fact, her house — with the BLACK chandelier — is so awesome, me and another mommy threatened to lock her and her family out so we could move in as is. Anyway, you get my point. She’s your friend that you want to go hang out in her craft room on the weekends. And she decided to have a Toy Story 3 Party for her son.
When we got the invite, (“sector” was replaced with their address) we were ALL in! It certainly set the stage for what Princess Cupcake would probably call the party of the year. If she understood what “year” really meant. Regardless, the parents were talking about it for weeks.
Since it was mid-July, one guarantee was that it was going to be a Texas scorcher. The backyard was filled with inflatable pools (yes, plural) with slides, squiggly sprinklers, beach balls, a sandbox and easy-ups for shade all through the backyard.
That was outstanding fun for a bunch of 3 year olds in and of itself, but the inside was ALL Toy Story. On every TV, including the media room, the movie was playing. You know, to set the stage. Or in my child’s case, perform in front of it.
When you got thirsty, there was water,
In case you were hungry, there was Planet Pizza,
With martian hats,
Color-coordinated balloons and streamers everywhere. And my happy husband – whoops, how’d he get in there?
And here’s where it starts to get crazy good… Movie banners,
Potato head mustaches (chocolate on a stick),
Big Al’s cheese puffs,
Treat bags in case you wanted to lift some of the candy goodies, (DUH! You don’t have to ask me twice!)
Like piggy cake pops, chocolate covered martian Oreos, homemade marshmallow chocolate covered stars (divine), star sugar cookies, homemade green gummy army men, and I am sure I left so much out…
If that wasn’t enough, there were buckets of goodies (with Buzz Lightyear sunglasses!) to take with you when you left. As IF my child would leave willingly. Nope. She’s not stupid, she knows who has the fun house. She CLOSED. IT. DOWN. And cried because she didn’t want to leave. Really, can you blame her?
Great fun for everyone! Thanks Sabrina Perrenoud – it was a BLAST, and you’ve raised the bar oh, so, high… 🙂
