Green Army Men {birthday party}

When our good friend Stephanie from Stephanie J Designs told us the theme for her son's birthday was going to be green army men we were super excited. We created a 3-D green army men jeep cake, chocolate cake pops, chocolate chip cupcakes, vanilla medallion sugar cookies, and we found green army men gummies and green apple jelly beans to top it off. Stephanie with the use of star medallion tags, fun names for the treats, coordinating place settings and burlap table cloths pulled the whole party together. The treats were placed down the center of the table, instead of on a separate dessert table, it made for an impressive party table for the kids to eat and play at.

invitations like no other by Stephanie J Designs
Stephanie came up with fun names for the treats, so chocolate cake pops became chocolate cake grenades.
treat bags customized with tags and more clever army references
bags filled with caramel popcorn were labeled cracker bullets
my favorite snack were the star medallion sugar cookies we made. They were labeled "atomic sugar cookies"

instead of the traditional candy bags, we filled large glass mason jars with green army men gummies labeled "infantry" and green apple jelly beans labels "shrapnel"

The centerpiece to the party was the green army jeep cake (yes that is cake!) It was placed on a cake drum covered in raw sugar sand

another angle of the jeep cake, it was over an inch of the stand, which is a custom made stand decorated with ribbon and paper. The sugar cookie were created to match all of the amazing papery created by Stephanie J Designs.
