This year, I wanted to keep the desserts simple -- just cake, cupcakes and mochi ice cream. A raspberry buttercream cake and chocolate cupcakes were decorated with beautifully sculpted fondant toppers by Sugar High, Inc.
Caitlyn's 100+ collection of Iwako erasers were displayed on nail polish racks. Lime green and hot pink bento lunch boxes from All Things for Sale were wrapped with water bottle labels from the printable collection. Wooden clothes pins adorned with decorative washi tape were used to hang kawaii prints and secure glassine favor bags.
Each guest received a handcrafted book personalized with their name in Japanese. The girls drew kawaii faces with scented glitter gel pens and decorated their books with washi tape.
Using panda rice molds, food picks, cutters, nori punchers and other fun accessories from All Things For Sale, the girls prepared their bento boxes. Lunch was served with flavored sodas from Japan. Candy sushi filled gummy worms, Swedish fish and Twizzlers, wrapped with Rice Krispies Treats and Fruit by the Foot, and topped with roe-like mango poppers were a huge hit.
Each favor bag contained Paper Glitter's kawaii panda stationery set, washi tape on a wooden spool, and an Iwako panda.
Happy birthday, C8lyn!
Gotta show some love to Linnette of Paper Glitter and Brenda of Sugar High, Inc. Not only are these ladies mega talented, they're incredibly generous and sweet, and such a joy to work with. And a special thank you goes to Rebecca for capturing the details of the event (not to mention showing us how to pop open the Japanese sodas).
