I spent entirely too much time making these party hats. If I wasn't a scrapbooker, I probably wouldn't have bothered . . . do you ever go to all the trouble of making something just for a cool picture (and layout)? Yeah, it's one of my many faults. My husband was rolling his eyes while I was making them.
In case you have a farm party coming up, here are some close up shots of the hats. Think LOTS of hot glue!
I got the cake and hat idea out of a kids birthday party magazine I've had for three years. This cake was actually pretty easy to put together. The key was taking a can of frosting and adding one cup of powdered sugar to it--this made the frosting extra stiff for putting the barn and silo together. The frosting on the cake I made from scratch.
He wasn't really sure what to do with the cake . . . and I'm okay with that.
He had plenty of kids to show him how to open his gifts.
A little boy is not complete without a lightsaber, right? I know these are intended for children over age three, but I will watch him carefully, he just loves the swords and sticks. Such a boy! Happy birthday little man!
