Mission Donuts & Dragons is complete. I kept this one on the D.L. because it was to be a surprise for the guests. Donuts because I adore them and dragons to add a little fierce, fire breathing fun into the mix:) Snooped around for a few weeks and was able to find out each kids' favorite donut.
Kids ate lunch...were supposed to go outside and do what I thought was a very cool dragon craft, but it was very hot and humid and they preferred to sit on the couch in the a/c and watch Spongebob...They all also told me the craft was lame...LOL! Kids...
I worked on a bunch of projects for this one...The pom pom garland was made from fleece-no sewing involved. I made the individual donut pedestals. Totally love these and I am sure you will see them again.
I am going through a crazy fabric phase, along with my crazy ribbon phase. LOL! Fabric wrapped lollipops just are cuter than plain ones. The donut kebabs were an original & ridiculously adorable idea and I am still in love with them. They just looked charming...only one kid ate half of one kebab though...LOL! The Donut Tree was beyond funny and the kids adored that too. I added a whole lotta dragons as well..There were mostly boys at the party and I wanted to add a butch element. LOL! I found cuddly magnetic dragons that fit the bill. The color palette was created to coordinate with these funny little dragons.
Each guest took home a donut bakery box filled with donut and dragon type trinkets. I wrapped these tiny bakery boxes in colored baker's twine and made little metal tags with their first initials on them...
The dragons found their way all over the house and yard. the kids had a blast finding metal objects to stick them to.
Perfect little party. The kids were happy which made the Mamas happy. Couldn't ask for more than that. Except for maybe one of those kids to want to make the dragon craft. It was very cool, I swear:)
