Up next is this fabulous SHREK + PUSS IN BOOTS THEMED FIFTH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Amber Gannon. Wow, what details! Amber did a wonderful job! I hope you gain a lot of inspiration and ideas from this darling party…

Amber said this about planning the party- “This Puss in Boots 5th birthday party was a dream for Callum and his friends. Because the theme is not common, creativity was key! We went with a very spanish theme for the food table and main decor. The chili bar, grilled chicken swords, quesadillas and magic bean cups were fun enough for the kids and sophisticated enough to please the adults, too. The golden eggs (pineapple sprinkled in edible gold glitter) were a major hit! A little something for everyone…

For drinks, I wanted to offer something a bit healthier than juice or soda, so I made a flavored water with raspberries and limes. In the custom Puss in Boots Hat adorned cups, the kids didn’t know the difference. I did, however, indulge them just a bit with dessert. Since my son doesn’t prefer plain milk, we went with little shots of chocolate milk lined in edible gold glitter.

For the desserts, I wanted a much lighter look with more of a nod to the Jack in the Beanstalk part of the story. The bar was covered in twinkly, fluffy clouds to go with the beanstalk cake. The dessert bar featured cloud meringue cookies, beanstalks, beanpoles, magic beans, paw print cookies and of course, the cake!

Perhaps the most enjoyable part of planning this party was creating the party favors. I love a great take-home favor that isn’t “trinket trash.” With the help of Callums grandma, we custom made each cape that was paired with a black mask and a sword, of course. The kids went crazy for them and wore them during the party. It totally set the mood. The adorable parting gift was a little package containing a magic bean. A small pot, bag of dirt and individual message bean were included with instructions of how to plant their seed. It turned out so cute! This party was such a blast! The kids had the best time and are still talking about it!!”
