Are you planning your child’s next birthday party and feeling like you’re running out of creative party ideas? Why not follow the cupcake trend and throw a cupcake-themed celebration? Cupcakes are a staple at birthday parties these days, and you can extend the cupcake-theme to the invitations, decorations, and games, too! Here are my personal favorites:
Games: Pin the candle on the cupcake and a cupcake toss (using beanbags and cupcake pans)
Invitations: Buy or make your own cupcake-shaped invitations and include confetti inside the envelope.
Decorations: Use a brown table cloth (cupcake batter) topped by a smaller pink or blue table cloth (frosting) and sprinkle confetti or sequins on top of this (sprinkles).
Food: Set up a cupcake-decorating station complete with candies, sprinkles and other cupcake toppings.
