This is what Brittany had to say about planning the party- “When Emma Kate’s mommy contacted me a few months back about planning her 2nd birthday, she told me that EK loved Daisy Duck and she was hoping she still would by the time her birthday came around. Well, the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Miss EK was thrilled with her Daisy Duck party and kept saying “Day-dy duck!” So precious! And purple? Hello? My favorite color! And since there are hardly any Daisy Duck themed party supplies out there, I had to stretch myself, which I love!
My first step was finding the Daisy Duck wall decal on Amazon. I simply applied it directly to a large piece of foam core and then cut it out with an xacto knife. It is a super affordable way to have a big impact on your backdrop. I decided to really focus on Daisy herself, but also purple daisy flowers to bring in a really girly touch.
Piggy Bank Parties was kind enough to modify their polka dot printable collection for me by adding super cute little pink bows to it!
I wanted to make a stand that looked like a birthday cake and then use it to display cake pops. So, I crafted a large tiered stand out of styrofoam disks and hat boxes. I added embellishments with tulle trim, feather trim, and different colored ribbon. For the topper, I simply painted a chipboard #2 and then added adhesive rhinestones from the scrapbook department. For the cake pops, what else but little Daisy Ducks? The fabulously talented Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins did the adorable pops for me! The beautiful chocolate covered Oreos with fondant toppers were done by Maria at Love and Sugar Kisses. I mean, could you die? They were little works of art! Suckers by Steph, as always, made me some beautiful chocolate suckers. She is one of my favorite edible vendors to work with and these were just beautiful!
I decided to have “duck” themed food on the menu, so we had “Duckbills and Dip,” “Cheese and Quackers” cut with a high heeled cookie cutter, Goodie Goodie Bites (Daisy’s Catch Phrase) which were chicken minis from Chic Fil A, and then Purple Bow Pasta Salad. Did you know you could dye pasta? It’s really easy! All you do is cook the pasta until it’s al dente, then add gel color to it. You can get gel color at any craft store in the cake section and there are tons of colors!
For the favors, I wanted a super cute and very “Daisy” favor box, so I emailed Do at Piggy Bank Parties to see if she could do a high heel shaped favor box with a rounded toe. After some very hard work on her part, she delivered these COMPLETELY adorable high heels! They were the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life! And the awesome news is that she can do them in any color! These would be the perfect favor box for SO many girly party themes! To display them, I glued some scrapbook paper to a small shoe box that I had lying around my house from Christmas. Then I used the tulle trim for a little extra cutenesss.
The daisy chains are from Hobby Lobby and I found them in the wedding section. They were the perfect garland for the table!”
