I have 3 Cricut cartridges but everything I cut is from A Child's Year - for this party there were red roses with green leaves, purple & green Mad Hatter's hats, and a banner in pink, mint, blue and purple.
We decorated the back patio with crepe paper, balloons - half of them polka dot with big white spots, and mixy-matchy dinnerware, all in the same fun colors. We hung a few strands of white star lights and put out some pretty tulips.
The HIT for the four-year old crowd were the cake pops. Bakerella of course (here). These were definitely red velvet yummi-ness. They stand in a foam rectangle covered in a sheer ribbon. I used sewing pins to push in a few buttons I've had lying around from making an Alice costume years ago.
(HOW does Bakerella make the pops look so perfect??? I tried two batches - one with melted white choc. chips and another with Wilton candy melts - both times it was very gloppy).
Here's a little gift set for Caitlyn from us - CASEd from Nichole (here). I LOOOVE this beauty she made! (Nice how I didn't take the time to iron the recycled ribbon ;)
Alas, for more photos. Before I knew it, the day was simply,
CAKE POPS HINT: after you've coated the cake pops for use in the display you'll have 40-something cake pops left in a typical batch. TOO many to coat (at least, for me). Instead I chilled the cake pops, then melted white chocolate chip, put the chocolate in a baggie, cut off the tip, and drizzled them on the cake balls. I did the same with dark chocolate chips. Deeelicious, easy and yummy for the adults too.
