Roller Skate Party: Full Party Post

You've seen the magazine feature, behind the scenesand craft fails... now it's time to share the full party post. Bird's Party sent her brand new Roller Skate printable collection for me to work with. I immediately loved the colors and fun graphics. I wanted to make this party retro and very girly.

Party Colors: Red, Pink, and Turquoise
Party Theme: Roller Skate 7th Birthday Party 
Desserts: 2 Tier Cake, Cupcakes, Cupcake Marshmallow Pops, Balloon Cake Pops
Party Favors: Gumball Necklaces, Tube Socks, Flavored Lip Balms, and Balloons. 
Party Highlights: Handmade Wood Skate Signs and Kusudama Paper Flowers

Cake and Fondant:  Samantha's Sweets created a two tiered cake with red and turquoise fondant ric rac at the bottom of each layer. I called in my "fondant dream team" for this project, Love and Sugar Kisses created the pink fondant ruffle flowers and the number 7 cake topper and Edible Details created the adorable pink roller skates and flower cupcake toppers. 
Decorations: Origami Delights handmade two different sizes of Kusudama Flowers in red, pink, and turquoise for the table. Whimsical Printables created the adorable matching bottle caps that adorn the milk bottles as well as the gumball necklaces, balloons, and glittery spoons. And last but not least Small Town Myrtle Brown handmade the wood skate sign and the "Roller Skate" signs. The signs added a retro vibe and special WOW factor to the table. 

Crafting: My personal craft projects for the party included the backdrop, drink flags (placed on Got Moo strawberry flavored milk straws), tube sock vases, and "dessert" favors. 

And of course more desserts: Samantha's Sweets created the most beautiful and delicious desserts for the table including cake, cupcakes, cupcake marshmallow pops, and balloon cake pops. Everything matched the collection perfectly. Sam totally surprised me with inside of the cake, I die. 

FAVORS: The favor table was designed to look like a second dessert station. The gumball necklace cake, tube sock cupcakes, flavored lip balms, and balloon filled push up pops were all displayed on classic Mosser Glass milk glass cake plates. Pink polka dot and striped favor bags were displayed on a beautiful balloon tassel made by The Flair Exchange
