"Army Proud" Birthday Party


I don't know, but I've been told . . . Hayden turned six years old!  

I'm so excited to finally share with you all the images from my Son's Army Birthday Party!  I often find myself stumped when it comes to boy themed parties, however after months of meticulously researching/ planning, I think I came up with a party that was perfect for my little soldier!

Birthday Cake

This cake was created by a friend and was absolutely STUNNING!  I kept the cake "top secret" from my son because I wanted to see his reaction when it arrived!

One Happy Little Man!

One month prior to my son's party was my nephew's.  He too went with an Army theme; I wanted to share with you the cupcakes & toppers I created his birthday gala (smiles).

April through June is a very busy time for me; we (my family and myself) have parties galore!  And, I'm the designated party planner!  So, I would like to apologize for lack of posts.  I just recently finished "two" baby showers and can't wait to show you my creations!

For now, I think it's safe to say; I'm all partied out (sigh)!  However, before I leave, I wanted to share one more thing.  I found these cute camouflage cupcake tattoos @ Walmart (on clearance) and had to try them.  

Custom frosted cupcakes from Walmart.


I cut & draped the tattoos over the pre-made cupcakes like fabric, the texture of the tattoo itself reminded my of an army uniform.  I think the outcome was fun & whimsical!  And the best thing about it is it was So Simple (whew)!

  22. Hello,
    I visited your blog today. I noticed you were interested in Interior Design. My daughter, Jess, is an Interior Designer, and has her degree in it. I love photography too. Your army pictures bring back so many memories. My son and his friend dressed up as army boys for Halloween one year. Those cupcakes look so delicious. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love if you could visit us and follow. The link is: http://redrosealley.blogspot.com I would enjoy coming back and visiting with you and seeing all your lovely photos. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
