Well, sometimes I even surprise myself! It is the day before Baby Girl’s 2nd Birthday and I have 48 cupcakes baked, 1 pepto-bismal pink Octopus chilling, and most of the cleaning done (I said most…not all LOL)…all before noon! I have the cute litte cupcake toppers created and printed…but not cut out yet. This may live up to the expectations in my head! Makes me wish I had planned an actual party, rather than just us (plus the in-laws…there are 7 of them arriving tomorrow). So just with our ‘little family’ and hubby’s peeps the total still comes in at 13! I do still need to get more complimentary ribbon for the cupcake toppers and gift wrap for the gifts (AND wrap them, of course).
What fun this is going to be…at least for me! I love doing these little themes. We are doing an ocean-ish theme, but in pink & brown. There will be the big jello octopus, cupcakes adorned with the cute little cutouts (that include pink octopi), colorful goldfish (why can’t they make those in PINK!?!), and one of my oldies-but-goodies…the hot dog octupus! Okay, so I went a little octopus crazy…it was that stinkin’ pan I got for a steal at the Williams-Sonoma outlet…I could not resist it! A little sneak-peek at the cutouts, I just love them! I have been inspired and have started a whole collection of designs…baby showers…birthday themes (I have quite a list!)…ideas for all ages!
Todays secret revealed is…things are much easier to accomplish when you whittle away bit by bit…like you haven’t heard that one before! Until next time…the post-party report!
