Dora Birthday Party

So, this is the Dora half of the "Spidoraman" birthday party.

Here are the shirts I made for the kids

I saw a tutorial for making appliqued shirts at Flexible Dreams.  I never thought to do a blanket stitch around an applique!  My machine can't do a blanket stitch so I did it by hand before ironing it to the shirt

I just did the good ol' zigzag stitch for the Spiderman shirt

And here are a few of the other details from the party:

I think the crown is a little too big :)

These are a couple of the favors
Jelly bean bracelets (my thumb still hurts from threading all these!)

and homemade crayons (in the shape of "estrellas")

I packaged it all in these

And here are the cupcakes
Dora is actually a ring

They were displayed on this zero dollar cupcake stand (tutorial here)

Here are some chocolate covered pretzels from the Spiderman side of the party

I didn't get any good pics of the actual party set-up... it was at one of those bounce house places so the people there set everything up.  I was too busy partying with the kids to go snapping pics of the stuff!

OK, I'm all partied out and ready to nap for about a week.  There is so much I want to show you from our son's new room, but that post will have to wait a little bit.  See you again soon!
