Last week Caitlyn turned seven! I don’t know how my baby turned seven right before my eyes but she did! For her party she wanted it to be Descendants theme! With the movie being so new, finding things in stores was almost impossible. I found a few things online but nothing I really wanted to spend all my printer ink on. Thankfully with it being Halloween, I was able to hit up the Dollar Spot at Target and the Dollar Tree for some decorations and Caitlyn loved it!
The cake of course had to be a spell book! This was made with a sheet cake using this tutorial on carving the cake into a book. Behing the cake on the table was a sign I got from Target for $3 that also doubles as a Halloween decoration! I found some black and purple glittery bats at Target also for $1 to put on the table and the bowls in the back are from the Dollar Tree and are filled with Hershey Kisses and Blow Pops! The table itself is a black table cloth over a purple table cloth with purple streamers hanging down. I also taped two blue table clothes over the window for the backdrop and hung a mirror that was a garage sale find! I just wrote happy birthday and tried to draw the symbol for Evie’s character in the movie!
In front of the cake are sugar cookies! We make magic mirror cookies and dog bones with spots not dots!
Next to the cake, I used two frames from the Dollar Tree along with some glittery apples (Christmas section at the Dollar Tree) and two glittery birds, also from the dollar tree and wrote some little sayings from the movie! I wrote them because I totally forgot to print them and it was the day of the party and PANIC!
The whole table set up cost under $30 and Caitlyn got the party she imagined! Score one for mom!
