Obstacle Course Party

I have been MIA for almost a month! I did get a little make over on my blog. I just had it cleaned up a little! I think I like the white background!!! I'm back and ready to work!

Here is a party I recently styled, location was set at a beautiful park. This is the first of a few parties coming up that I did from top to bottom. From set up to tear down and clean up! My client just had her 4th child and didn't have the time to really plan a party. Honestly, she was very laid back through the whole process. She told me three things, 1- he wanted chocolate cake, 2-he liked anything competitive, and 3-she wanted to have it at the park after school for all the kids in his class. THATS IT! Oh, and we were on a budget! I kept it simple but bright. I always like to see how far I can run with my independence and she let me! HA! So, I hired someone to do the cake and the cookies and I did the rest!! I even took all the pictures! Thank goodness I have a photographer that will be joining me for all my big parties coming up! What a weight lifted off my shoulders!! More about that later!

Cake made by a young local school teacher Leslie Brouilette. HERE is her Facebook | For the Love of Cake Cake topper and custom invitation made by KB Custom Designs

I got this idea for the medals from Martha Stewart Kids then had them made by Stacey Crawford. I added the ribbon to them and they turned out perfect and yummy!
I had to get wrapped candy in coordinating colors,which we ended up throwing in the snack sacks. A small candy buffet can still make a punch! Keeping it on a budget!!! Labels by KB Custom Designs

Snack sack filled with after school treats... chips, peanut butter crackers, and rice krispy treats!

Obstacle Course...
Here is my (budget friendly) take of the obstacle course I found from Martha Stewart Kids. This was very easy to do and fun for kids this age! Boys and girls!






Ok, it was a very windy day! So, my cute little Finish Line sign blew away! OH well!

This was a beautiful day at the park! Jack's Mom loved it and said she plans to hire me for her other kids birthdays! Hey, that's great!!! It all went really good! Had to plan it all out so not to forget the little things... candles, lighter, knife to cut the cake, etc. Things you can't just run inside for! I didn't forget anything which was all I could hope for with this brain! So, hope you enjoyed my cute little party! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!!!

  2. that looks great! I was shooting for the martha Stewart one but love your version. Did you build those templates for the signs and invitation yourself? Is there a way to purchase the template from you to change the name and numbers and such? How did you get hte table cloths and such to match?
