DSC_0188Banner
I made the birthday banner out of card stock.  I found googled a template of the sun from the movie Tangled and used that to make my yellow suns.  I cut out 9″ triangles from the purple card stock glued the suns on, and used a pretty purple ribbon to string the flags together.  This whole project took me about 30 minutes to complete.

These are sooo easy.  I used white melting chocolate and gel icing color to create the vibrate colors of the pops.  I let my daughter pick out the colors she wanted and she loved that she had some input.  For the party I called these “Rapunzel’s paintbrush mallows”, since Rapunzel was a painter and all. :)

These are actually Twinkie Cupcakes.  I found the recipe on, wait for it….PINTEREST!  Here is the link:  I have made these three times now and they are always a hit.  The only thing I have done differently is cut back on the amount of powdered sugar that the original recipe calls for.  I used about half.  You can always add more if you like it sweeter.  I used the same gel icing color that I did when making the marshmallow pops to tint the decorative icing.

When I was trying to figure out favors for the party I kept thinking about Rapunzel and how she enjoyed painting.  I decided it would be cute to set up a little favor bar and the kids could fill up their own goodie bags with things that they could use to make beautiful art at home.  I had glass bowls filled with crayons and playdough.  I also had glow bracelets for the kids to take with them.  They reminded me of the lanterns in the movie. Last but not least, I had a bowl of candy for them choose a few pieces from.  What’s a party without candy, right?  I decorated the favor table with some sparkly purple tulle and pictures of the birthday from newborn until now.
