I’m incredibly excited to be sharing this post with everyone! I’ve been planning a Toy Story party for my best friend’s son’s third birthday for months and could not be more pleased at how everything turned out.
I was inspired by the new Toy Story Mania ride at Disney’s California Adventure (if you haven’t been, it’s a must) and wanted to recreate the carnival like atmosphere of the ride. I decided to use bright, bold colors, stripes and polka dots and incorporated the Toy Story characters throughout the display.
Goodies included Woody’s Rainbow Lollipops accented with colorful rainbow gumballs, which I found at our local candy store, Sweeties. The red and white lollipops were a bargain at Walmart.
The Mr. Potato Head chocolate mustaches were so much fun to make, visit the Tweedle Dee Designs blog for the full tutorial. I also could not be happier with how the rocket lollipop cookies turned out, they match the rocket ship graphic I designed for the printables. I have to give a big thank you to Marian of Sweetopia for her fabulous cookie tutorials, they were amazingly helpful.
And he definitely enjoyed his cake. I ordered the cake from Fry’s for only $11 and topped it with lollipops, a Buzz Lightyear candle and one of our printable party signs from our new Toy Box Collection.
I had an amazing time designing our new printable Toy Box Collection, which is now available in our Etsy Shop, as well as putting together all of the party details.
