Hi, my name is Bridget and I blog over at Bridgey Widgey where I blog about parties, crafts, and my family. I specialize in children’s parties because I love a good theme, and let’s face it, I am a kid at heart!
Orson Gygi is always my go to stop for party supplies. NO Bridgey Widgey party is complete without gumballs from Gygi. I love to trim my cakes with gumballs because the kids love to pick them off, but mainly because it gives my cakes a nice clean finish and trim. Any cake will look more polished with a nice trim of gumballs!
With my parties I am all about the details and special touches. I understand most little 4 year olds won’t understand or care, but I do and I can’t help myself. Here are some of the small details that made my main table display come to life:
Yoda Soda was created using supplies from Orson Gygi. I dipped plastic cups in Wilton’s green melting chocolate and then quickly dipped the cups into a shallow dish of green sprinkles. I repeated this twice to get the coverage I wanted of sprinkles. Top with a cute paper straw and you have a nice personal touch to your party. It is all about the details!!
Next are my Wookie cookies. I created these with grasshopper cookies, black sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, and white frosting. I melted some Wilton melting chocolate and with a tooth pick drew lines to create “fur” like lines to create his face. They turned out cute I think, or at least the two girls at the party who didn’t know a thing about Star Wars thought these “critters” were cute.
At my son’s party I created a bunch of Jedi training stations they had to complete. One of the stations was to build a fighter ship. I used white boxes from Gygi to place individual legos in each box so with their imagination they could create a ship. At the end of the party each guest was able to take home their box full of legos.
The highlight of the party was taking down Darth Vader.
