Pink and Zebra Print Birthday Party!

Sorry all, I know my posts are few and far between right now, but with the hubby home... well you know how it is. ;)

The day after he got home we had my 9 year old's birthday party. She is all about zebra print right now so we ran with it (thank God I talked her out of another Twilight party!)

We played Pin The Tail on the zebra! I found a zebra on a google search and erased his tail using Paint. I printed it off poster sized and taped it up. The girls used pieces of black ribbon for the tails. Of course, I didn't manage to get a picture. (sigh) but here is the zebra!

The cake was a cupcake tower. We had chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese icing. The icing was AMAZING! I hate hate hate icing, except for this kind. I fell in love and could have ate the entire bowl.

The cupcake wrappers were made with love by ME! They were so easy to make. I used the template from Skip To My Lou and managed to get 7 wrappers on each 12 x 12 inch piece of scrapbook paper. Once the cupcakes were ready I put the wrappers around them and taped them into place.

Rae also had her mini candy buffet. It would have been the wedding candy buffet but it was way to hot for an outside candy buffet. Rae loved it though!

I also made her a super cute banner. Her name is now hanging above her bed. It matches her new bedding perfectly!

I cut the zebra paper into 4 in x 6 in rectangles and then cut out the letters on hot pink paper with my Cricut. I stapled all of the zebra papers to some black crepe paper and hung them up in the kitchen.

I got her zebra bedding from walmart. She adores it! (don't ask about the cardboard behind her bed, it was her sisters racecar until it died.

All in all it was a great party. (no idea why her hair is yellow in this picture!)

 I'm pretty sure the BEST part was suprising the girls the night before when we picked up their stepdad at the airport. It's been an AMAZING leave!
