Cupcake Party Week: Favors and Activities

Typically we don’t like to encourage eating as your child’s activity (get a move on little ones!), but we’re going to break our own rule today.  After all, folks coming to a Cupcake Party should be expecting some indulging, and we’re happy to oblige.

A “decorate your own cupcakes” bar at least allows your guests to get creative!

Include an array of frosting options and unique toppings like fruit, candy, caramel corn, coconut, marshmallows, cereal, almonds and more.  Don’t forget to finish things off with our custom toppers!

An older group might enjoy a little cupcake fondue, for most it might be their first time!  Set it up like a picnic on the floor of your living room and go “Troop Beverly Hills” style:

Anyone else remember when the troop skipped out on the s’mores and camp out and opted for fondue in a hotel suite?  No?  Am I the only one pulling inspiration from 80′s comedies?  You and I both know Shelley Long was exuberant.

Back to the fondue…

How fun is that?

These favors will have your guests looking the part in chef hats and aprons.

Personalize things with names on the aprons and these adorable cupcake liner flowers on the hats.  So festive!  And if spending $9/apron is too rich for your blood we found these plain white children’s aprons for half the price.

Send your chef’s home with the cupcake in a jar we mentioned yesterday so they can continue their indulging once they recover from their cupcake coma.

We also spotted these cupcake photo holders on clearance at Pier 1 and absolutely love the idea of using them as favors. Take a photo of guests holding their culinary masterpieces and include the photo in a “Thank you” card to slide right into place on the photo holder!  Cupcake Party brilliance.

Tomorrow we’ll be announcing the winner of our giveaway so now’s your last chance to get entered to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop.  Good Luck!
