Karsyn's First Birthday Party Part I

Karsyn's first birthday party was this weekend and it was a huge success. If you can't tell it was ladybug themed and we had way too much food and sweets, but everyone had a good time. I will be posting several tutorials in the next few days on how I made several of the items from the party.

The favor boxes contained bubbles, a bug catching kit, a big ladybug crayon I made, a ladybug coloring book I put together, stickers and ladybug antennae. I also made ladybug cookies they could take home and had bags for the candy bar.

Paper drinking straws....I love them

Ladybug hat, Aunt Crystal made

chocolate cupcakes

ladybug outfit, love the shoes too

Homemade shrimp spring rolls..delicious

Cake pops

Homemade Coconut Ice Candy-I got this idea from Hello Naomi and thought it was such a cute idea. Recipe  is super easy. 1 1/2 bags coconut, 1 can condensed milk, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 pound powdered sugar. Blend all ingredients together, press 1/2 of the mixture into a 7x7 greased pan, tint the other 1/2 whatever color you wnat and press on top of the first layer. Powder your hands with more powdered sugar to help reduce sticking. Refridgerate to harden before cutting into squares.
