Parker's Penguin birthday

Parker's birthday this year was really fun. We made it a penguin theme because he loves penguin's! So here are some of the things I did.

Yeah for penguin cupcakes. All the penguin cupcakes I found online were really lame so I made my own.I just did white frosting and piped on the black and the eyes with those ready to go icings you find at the store. The mouth and feet are fondant and stuck in with toothpicks.
I made "icicles" out of icy blue paper and I made " falling snow " using a thread and those little round labels you find in the office supply section. I just stuck them together back to back so that they stayed on the thread. Everyone kept asking if they were glow in the dark or something because they look really cool. when the light hits them the actually look like they are sparkling. Very pretty. those were all over not just on the window.
I love these penguins from Madagascar. So we printed pictures of them and placed them around the table. I also mad those "Ice blocks" you see them standing on by wrapping a bunch of boxes from around the house in white paper. Those were also stacked all over the house.
This was the most popular item. Candy sushi! The wrapping on the outside was fruit roll ups and the inside was Rice Krispy treats. I used Swedish fish as the fish and I used colored Twizzlers and gummy worms for the sushi roll filling.

I couldnt resist buying these fish bowl looking jars! I love them! All of the side dishes we served were penguin colored so black, white and orange. What a fun night. Of course we ordered a huge amount of real sushi, being that penguins eat raw fish. ( I also got sandwiches for people like me who cant stand sushi! ) Oh, ya I forgot to get a picture but the sandwich picks I replaced with little penguins I printed off line and put on toothpicks
