Toy Story Party Details:

This is what Michelle said about planning the party- “I had so much fun creating a play date party featuring my boys’ favorite Toy Story characters.

The Dessert Table and Decor:
For the backdrop, I used the iconic clouds from Andy’s room and added my son’s name in a crayon font inspired by Andy’s name on Woody’s boot. Using my Silhouette, I made red monkeys, cloud boxes, Pizza Planet pizza boxes and Sid’s shirt. I made cow print table runners and also made a coordinating rag garland out of bandannas for a whole $4! For the “College”, “Sunnyside” and “Attic” moving boxes, I didn’t have any tiny cardboard boxes, so I improvised and used kraft gable boxes from Pick your Plum that I had in my stash. I just cut off the handles, and viola, miniature moving boxes to hold toy topped cupcakes! I also found the cutest Buzz Lightyear favor boxes and gliders on Amazon.com. Not sure if you can tell, but Woody is sitting on an alphabet block tissue box I found at Target on clearance, love when that happens!

The Sweets:
Inspired by these Pig Cupcakes on Parenting.com I baked “Hamm” inspired strawberry cupcakes. I admit it, I have limited cake/cookie decorating skills, so instead of commissioning pizza cookies for my “Pizza Planet” pizza boxes, I decided to bake my own cookies. I wrapped them in plastic wrap and topped them with a pizza sticker. I figured the kids wouldn’t mind. I made alien marshmallow pops by dipping them in lime green chocolate and added pre-made candy eyes from Wilton. Using Twizzlers and marshmallows I made Sunnyside Daycare rainbows but my personal favorite dessert was the “There’s a snake in my boot!” chocolate pudding boot cups. I also decorated large lime green ice cream cups with alien faces and added a heap of popcorn for my little popcorn lovers. I filled candy jars with “Buttercup” Unicorn horns, “Green Army Men” gumballs, “Sunnyside Daycare” rainbow Skittles and Twizzlers, Red “Sid&qu ot; gumballs, “Big Baby’s” Bottles, “Monkeys in a Barrel” banana runts and yellow “Woody” gumballs wrapped with a bandana and lasso.

Paper Stationery:
In addition to the backdrop, I made Jessie and Woody hat stickers for the candy containers, Pizza Planet stickers, pizza stickers, toy character cupcake toppers, a Welcome door sign, tent cards, “Sunnyside Snack” favor bag toppers, favor tags and Buzz Lightyear inspired candy bar wrappers. I also made a photo booth backdrop and props for play time along with the “Put the Eye on the Alien” game.

Party Favors:
I set up a little table with all the party favors. I found bubble gum blasters, army men, kaleidoscope rockets. A while back I found a set of 6 silver piggy banks on clearance at Micheal’s for $2 that I painted pink for “Hamm”.

Activities:
We had the most fun decorating Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head cereal treats. I found some silicone ice trays on Amazon.com that I used to make candy hats, mustaches, lips and bows. We used pink marshmallows for ears, sour cherry balls for noses and non edible googly eyes. We frosted potato shaped cereal treats with caramel apple frosting and stood them up on plastic potato head shoes I found in the boys’ toy box. The boys played Cowboy dress up, “Put the eye on the Alien” and posed in the photo booth with fun photo props.

The boys and I had a blast spending the day with Buzz, Woody and the gang”!

    The guests will probably be young children so try having cupcakes or even mini cupcakes in pastel colors and a tasty fruit drink as part
    of the refreshments. Having adults around in a kid’s
    party is helpful, if there are activities that require adult supervision.
    There’s also a place for planning things like the guest list,
    the party menu and drinks list and the party decorations.
    You can always send them great Christmas gifts through
    online stores, right.

    He spotted a Sears snow cruiser that was only made from 1965 to
    1972 and is truly a collector’s item. It is necessary to
    wisely choose carpets to be placed in a room so that
    they can add color, style and warmth. The most popular types and styles of these include the following:

    There is no need to purchase bottled water, which
    is expensive; you can store your own fresh drinking water for purposes of drinking in vertical storage tanks.
    This tool is a long, hollow, transparent piece
    of plastic branded with one-foot accretion. Experience the difference an experienced,

    The fact is that nowadays there are hundreds if not thousands of different types of dog supplements and treats that
    you can buy today. Sometimes eating of bad calories result
    in making the dieter overweight which is really a matter of concern because it directly targets the working efficiency of its user.

    ‘Were the supplements tested independently for purity and
    strength.
