Anniearctica: decor and food

Get our your scarves and put on your parkas!

You're invited to the land of Anniearctica!

Come play with the penguins and dance in the snowflakes!

Have some yummy food and of course lots of cake!

Come help us celebrate Annie turning two- join us on December 10th from 12-2!

Some penguins in the entry

Another snow drift ;) and the ornaments on the tree were the party favors :)

I found these little guys at Home Goods- too cute to pass!
This is my second party to use a balloon banner, and it won't be my last!

I had 16 of these balloons around the house. I found them here before I ever found pinterest, (I've been planning this party since last year lol). I had bodies cut out for them, but my helper did not blow up the balloons as big as I asked so they just have faces, (still cute though).
Punch Station
Punch recipe from here, (I didn't have an ice cream scooper, so please excuse the wonky clumps).

I am creative, but not artistic. I cannot draw or sculpt to save my life. So, I found these little marshmallow penguins from Oriental Trading.

I tie-dyed the inside, but it wasn't quite as cute as my layered cake. Def will be doing layered cakes instead in the future.
I had a coupon for a free cookie cake- 2 penguins for her second birthday and while they misspelled Anniearctica, it still gets the point across.

Snowflake Rice Krispie Treats

Chex Mix sells premade muddie buddies, but they are not as good, so I made these fresh. :)
It may be hard to see, but this is a cheese igloo. :)
with Ritz snowflake crackers :)

I discovewred gingerbread houses were more of a pain than they are worth! So I barely decorated it! lol

Part 2 tomorrow! :)

  1. Oh Wow! You did a great job! I'm glad I had the privilege of seeing the beginning prep. So it was fun seeing the final piece.

    Too bad that I've already forgotten how to do the balloon banner. I should have videotaped your demo. :-)
