My mother’s birthday, my birthday, and my parents’ anniversary all occur within a week of each other. It makes for a lot of fun!
Cupcakes are a popular alternative to a birthday cake. For my mother’s birthday party at a local restaurant, guests enjoyed cupcakes. Transporting and displaying cupcakes is a tricky thing. Since I knew that I could not display the cupcakes on a tower or stand at the restaurant where the party was held, I needed to think of a way to present the cupcakes individually.
So I created my own cupcake favors!
These favors would be perfect for a childrens’ party, a bridal or baby shower, or even a bake sale when people will take a cupcake to go!
Here’s what you’ll need:
~ cupcake (of course!)
~ cupcake wrapper
~ cellophane bag
~ party flag
~ plastic cup
First, wrap the cupcake with the decorative paper. I'll have a tutorial to show you how to make these in the near future, too. ;) Place the cupcake in the plastic cup. I used Solo brand 9 ounce clear plastic cups.
Then, after you add your party flag, slide the cup into the cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon. Easy and cute!
Guests have their individual cupcakes to enjoy at the party or to take with them. Most of the guests decided to take their cupcakes home since we had dessert at the restaurant.
I'm looking forward to a fantastic birthday and a super secret birthday surprise getaway this weekend! I've been trying to find out where I'll be going, but all I know at this point is that it is south of the Mason-Dixon line. Mmmmmm. We'll have to wait and see.
