Layla loves Lego's, so last year she requested a Lego Friends themed party. They are pretty new, so there isn't a lot of pre-made stuff available. For her invitations, I decided to make them myself. I blogged about that here.
This picture is so horrible I almost hate to post it, but it's all I managed to get. There isn't really any where else I can put our table for the party, than in front of this window. That makes pictures really hard. Those colored rectangles in the back were meant to be Lego bricks. I made them from thin sheets of foam, but it was too hard to cut the circles out. So I just pressed some circles in to the foam. You can't see it in the photo though. For some reason, these pictures didn't post well, if you click on them, they are much clearer.
Party fail. If I had gotten them finished sooner than the day of the party, I could have tried something else. Oh well I guess.
I had trouble deciding on a cake, she ended up liking the Lego bricks. I made the cake board a little too large. Oops. I used some of her Lego Friends toys to help decorate.
These are chocolate covered vanilla wafers. After they were covered & dry, I went back over each one and piped on the tops of the bricks.
These are solid chocolates made using a mold. Super easy & you can pretty much find a mold for any theme!
My second try with cake pops. I was so happy when I was dipping them and they were turning out smooth! And then they started cracking. :( So many of the tutorials I have read say to freeze them before coating. I did them the same both times but they only cracked this time. What went wrong?
The colored sticks were purchased from Cakes & Kids, Too.
And we also had matching sodas.
To keep the kids entertained they swam and played in the yard.

Stay tuned because we just had Morgan's birthday last weekend, that should be posted soon. Plus I have several more giveaways coming, including Purex, a $25 Publix gift card, Carmex & more!
