One of the first things that popped into my head was to use Stonf's idea for treat bags from Bug's 2nd Sesame Street party. Using bags the same colors (or close enough) as the birds, I used construction paper to cut out eyes, beaks, and most importantly, eyebrows, to paste on the bags. And then filled the bags up with some Angry Bird goodies!
Note to self: use craft glue next time instead of a glue stick. : )
One of my favorite things from the party were the cupcakes! Now, between Jacob's Mario Bros. party and Julia's ladybug party from last year, I really didn't want to "try" to make red frosting again. My plan was to purchase one of those red gel icings to draw on the cupcakes. And, of course, they were sold out when I went to purchase, so I grabbed this Cookie Icing instead...not realizing what I was getting. Turns out to be the best mistake I made. After frosting the cupcakes with regular store bought frosting, I used the red cookie icing to draw the birds. Since the icing starts drying pretty fast, I made sure to add my sugar eyes right away so they would stick. Then, I just dyed some of the frosting orange for the beaks, and used a store bought black icing for the eyebrows. The cookie icing worked perfectly since it dried and hardened fast. I also dyed some of the frosting to make yellow birds, and used leftover eyes to make a few white birds. And by request of the birthday boy, one black bird, just for him!
I really did have a lot of fun planning this party and making it happen! Can't wait for the next one!
