Lego Batman Birthday Bonanza!

by

As a mom of two young boys, the majority of my life involves Lego’s in some capacity.  It is because of this love of Lego’s that it came as no surprise to me when my five year requested a Lego Batman Birthday party.  Not just Batman, not just Lego’s, but BATMAN LEGO’S.  Since we live in Florida where the weather is great year round, we celebrated at a local park.  Parks are not only a affordable, but they keep the mess out of your house!  Additionally, I find that their playgrounds are usually all the entertainment we need.

The first order of business in planning a party for a five year old, is planning the games.  If you don’t have a way to keep the kids entertained then all your plans will be for nothing because chaos will take over.  Follow the standard K.I.S.S rule (Keep it simple stupid) for the best results.  I kept it about as simple as it could get with Lego play, time on the playground and an egg hunt.  I know, Easter eggs are not exactly the first game that comes to mind for a fall birthday party.  All I can say is that my five-year-old knows exactly what he wants and is not willing to compromise.  Anyone with a five year old will probably tell you the same!

Lego play took place in “Maddex’s Batcave”, aka a camping tent boasting a fun sign.  Inside the Batcave was an inflatable kiddie pool filled with Legos for kids to create and build.  The added bonus of the Lego Batcave is that it provided a shady place for kids to gather as guests arrived. Lego Batman Batcave

 

After a bit of pizza and snacks the kids were ready to get their crazies out!  We hiked over to the nearby playground to let the kids go nuts while the adults hid all of our blue Easter eggs around the shelter.  When the kids came back they were sent on an egg hunt with their customized goody bags.  The goody bags were a hit with kids and adults alike, and couldn’t have been easier to pull off.  All I had to do was peel the label off and stick it right on a black gift back.  The glory of these labels is that they will work on just about anything.  In fact, my older son used a leftover label on his shirt so he’d be fully festive.

Finally, it was time for cake.  This basic 8″ round cake was made to look like the bat symbol seen throughout the party.  Accompanying cupcakes were given a similar treatment with homemade cupcake toppers.Batman Birthday BonanzaLastly, you have to wash down your sweet bite with water from a stylish water bottle!  Water bottle labels are so simple and easy!  They are the perfect way to add the final punch to your decor, and I promise, they will always spark conversation.  These labels can be customized and purchased here.  DIY Lego Batman Birthday The final and most important tip for hosting your child’s birthday party is to ENJOY YOURSELF!  Sometimes the amount of work that goes into pulling a party off is just the thing that keeps you from enjoying your own shindig.  Let your guests help themselves and remember not to let the moment pass you by!

It’s here!  The holiday you’ve been waiting for: National Donut Day!  These round sweeties aren’t limited to breakfast anymore, in fact they’re the star of the show! So we’re celebrating our love of donuts with our favorite ways to package them for your guests.  The key to a beautifully packaged sweet is making sure your eyes are as happy as your taste buds.  That means simple wrapping, a ribbon and a custom label will be all you need to get the job done!

First up, we have this adorable DIY donut box.  Made from a fairly simple template like the one found here.  This box takes a bit of time,  but makes up for it with impact.  Add a custom label, like this one, and you have a perfectly precious party favor!

In this next favor, we used a similar donut label, but drastically simplified the packaging.  A basic glassine pastry bag isn’t only easy on your DIY skills, it’s also easy on the wallet.  At about $2 for 25 bags (find them here for  your next event) the price is hard to beat!

If you want to make it even easier, you can purchase these party sacks here in the same purchase as your favor labels.  Add a little shredded filler, bakers twine and this hang tag (more colors available in store) for your label and a few donuts on top and you’re good to go!

In this set-up we swapped the circle label and bag for a milk jar wrapped in a water bottle label (which fits perfectly!) and simple straw flag.  This is my kind of grab-and-go snack!  Find these water labels here to complete your next sweets festivity.  Don’t forget the paper straws!Milk and Donut Favor

If you don’t want your beautiful sweets hiding in a bag or box, this is a great option: a cellophane bag with a ribbon and pretty label.

Lastly, you happen to run out of donuts all together, this unique favor will send your guests away ready to sprinkle their next sweet endeavor with fun.

cartoon cereal birthday

What kid doesn’t love Saturday morning cartoons, cereal and pajamas? This is a new spin on both the breakfast party – and the sleepover. It’s totally adorable, affordable and easy to pull off. Plan it on a Friday night (so you have Sunday to clean up) or just have a non-sleepover party in which your guests head over the morning of. If you can bring out more than one T.V for the party (think: iPads, computer screens, etc – get creative) you’ll add to the festivity and fun of a party devoted to everyone’s favorite secret past time – relaxing in front of the set with a bowl of delicious cheerios (well, almost everyone’s…). If you’re anti TV – some of us are – switch out the tv cartoons for cartoon books and newspaper strips!

3 Features to Add to Personalized Birthday Labels

by

Personalized labels Whether you’re giving the gift to an adult or child, personalized birthday labels can make receiving a present fun and exciting. You can add pretty much any message that you choose, and they’re available in several different sizes. While you may be tempted to add a traditional greeting to your custom labels, there are some unique ways to spice up the design.

 

Pictures and Other Graphics

Your personalized birthday labels can have all sorts of pictures and graphics to make it interesting. You can add a picture of the individual receiving the gift, or one of yourself. If you don’t have any interesting personal images to add, you can always find some fun graphics to play around with. Use these in any way that you choose to give your labels meaning and uniqueness.

 

Special Scripts

Custom labels Using decorative fonts on your labels can definitely go a long way in customizing them. There are scripts that are more formal, and others that have a more playful feel to them. Try to think about the person that you plan to give the gift to. Keep their personalities in mind when you choose a script. Also, be sure that the text fits in the label when you add your message. If you don’t check this before ordering, you could be in for an unhappy surprise.

 

Special Message

A personalized birthday label wouldn’t be personal without a custom message. Add a heartfelt message or funny quote that represents your relationship with that person. It could be a quote of something that you always say to them, or a special thought that the both of you share. This is the most important aspect of customized birthday labels, and the part that the recipient will remember the most. It’s almost like creating a special Hallmark card just for them.

It doesn’t take a lot of work to create a memorable, personal label for your friends and loved ones. By taking the time to do so, you show them that you care, and that you’ve got some design skills to show off. The more you play around with the possibilities, the more ideas you will come up with for other features to include. Customization, for the most part, is all about your imagination. Use these tips to start, and build an army of ideas to follow through with.
