Party Planning part 2

I am slowly getting there. The balloons, adult favors and goody bags are all ordered and have been shipped. The dress will be finished this weekend and shipped.

Now I just need to get the balloons so I can buy the right color plates to match and find stuff to fill the goody bags with. All I have right now are pink Hershey kisses and Krazy Straws. I wanted cupcake themed stuff but I'm having a tough time with that. Oriental Trading has some cute stuff but shipping is crazy.

I think I've decided on cake flavors and if I can pull it all off in the next few weeks, all cakes/cupcakes will be homemade. We'll see how much I can accomplish with one clingy 11mo old and a 3 yr old who always wants my attention plus school pickups/drop offs and tumbling classes and a dh who is only home 1 day a week lately. Wish me luck!

More party stuff to come...

Regarding the cake, I read on another blog that the blogger had a difficult time getting the cake just right. She said that the outside would be rock hard, while the inside was still gooey. So, you might want to plan to trial cake baking sessions with that cake pan.

Hey Karlise! I just got this coupon in the mail from Oriental Trading. $10 off if you spend $30 or more. Just use key code RH091231. Hopefully that works. Also for the shipping...Google "Oriental Trading coupons" and you can usually find a code to get free shipping. Good luck!

Hey, did you see the cupcake bites on Pioneer Woman? They look so cute!
