For his 8th birthday Alex wanted an Angry Birds themed party. For those of you that don't know, Angry Birds is a very addicting game and iTunes app. We all play it in our house. Alex says, "It is the best game EVER!!" It is also available for Android now as well. When he told me this is what he wanted I told him we probably would not be able to find many things if any at all for the party if this was the theme he were to choose. It is what he really wanted. Angry Birds. Hmmm. I was up to the challenge. Angry Birds it was, so first off I enlisted my friend, Stephanie to help with the invites. For reals, she can whip anything up and out in no time on her computer. Thanks, SKD. Next, I got on ebay to see what else I could find. I did not find anything as far as party goods or favors go. I did find a personalized edible picture for the top of the cake. Woohoo! I used paper plates in red (birds) and green (pigs). The goody bags were fun. Since the party was the end of Feb/ early March that meant Easter stuff was already out. Easter isn't until April 24, but, lucky for me Peeps (birds!) and other easter candies were already in stores. Yeah and Yum. ;) They made for some fun edibles for the treat bags. I got the rest of the things I needed for the bags at Oriental Trading. Love that site! Voila! A few things went a long way I think! Alex loved it!! That is all that mattered, right?? Check it.....
|Thank you SKDement for creating and printing|
the invites for us.
|For the goody bags, I used blue Peeps and yellow Peeps for the birds and|
chocolate Golden Eggs. If you play the game...well you know why!
|I also used Angry Birds colors for the goody bags. |
Luckily, I had these already on hand. Score.
|Here is the Angry Bird goody bag final product!|
I did not have time but, I wanted to make a label
for the bags that said, "Thanks for flying over to help me
celebrate!". I was going to put Angry Bird
clip art on the label, too. Next time! ;)

personalized edible picture on ebay.
