A Pink and Purple Cupcake Party

A Cupcake Party is easily a kid favorite!  I think children (and most adults too) love the hands on experience of decorating their own cupcakes, topping each cupcake with icing, candy, sprinkles, more icing, more candy...well, you get the idea!  This party was a little girl's 7th birthday party, and all 11 girls had the time of their life! 

It doesn't get much girlier than this party.  The house was filled with pink and purple!

I used paper products at the request of the mother, but still wanted to style a "fancy" table setting (at the request of the birthday girl).

The cupcake decorating table, where all the creativity took place!  Each girl loved that they could put their masterpiece on a pedestal while decorating. 

Check out this adorable cupcake pedestal by Jessica of Pen 'n Paperflowers .  Its a perfect touch to a cupcake party and if I had 10 more, I'd probably think if 10 different ways to use it!

This was my first attempt at a cupcake garland.  I loved how it turned out and will probably add it to every
cupcake party I host from now on!  So easy to make and coordinate with the party decor and colors.

The girls kicked things off by decorating their own apron using fabric markers and stickers.

Let the fun begin!

The girls didn't just decorate the edible kind of cupcake.  They also painted their own ceramic cupcake bank to take home. 

Not pictured were the games, Pin the Cherry on the Cupcake and a Candy Taste Test game.  Once everyone was all sugared up on cupcakes and candy, it was time to go.  So much fun was had, its easy to see why this theme is a kid favorite!
