If there's one thing my kids are currently obsessed with, it's emojis. From the amount of emoji party gear I found, I would say that they aren't the only ones!
This was a super fun party to plan and it was actually really easy given all the options for the theme.
I made the poop cookies, using this cookie cutter and royal icing and they were so fun. It's very tedious work, but the results are so cute! I use this royal icing recipe and factor in 1 day for each different color since you want them to dry before starting another.I usually order a cake, but since this was such a simple one, I made it. I did 4 - 9" layers, covered with Pillsbury neon yellow frosting and then just drew the sunglasses and smile with black icing.
On to the food! One thing I've noticed in hosting several kid parties, is that the kids don't eat much. They run around crazy and fill up on the cake and sweets. Who eats all that food? The parents. So this year, I decided to focus more towards them.
Whole Foods Lake Norman provided food for the party and it was absolutely perfect. I didn't even know they catered until recently, but I'm sure glad I found out! They also have a fantastic menu for the holidays, so if you want to impress your Thanksgiving or Christmas company and save on the stress, you better check them out!
We did a cheese platter that came with fruit, a veggie platter and a field greens salad with goat cheese, walnuts and cranberries. Everything was perfect and delicious. Callan helped himself to a ton of food before the party even started!
I always love to do a little photo booth setup, to make sure we get pictures of everyone! I can't remember where I got the props, but it was probably Walmart or Party City store. This is a really cute option, though.
For fun activities, we had a poop emoji pinata, which all the kids thought was just hysterical.I made large wink face emojis out of poster board and attached them to our Kan Jam set. I cut the mouth of the emoji the same size as the opening in the bucket, so the kids could throw beanbags through the mouth.
My big man is a whole hand!
A fun party was had by all!
