SpongeBob Party Madness (sneak peek #2)

I have been MIA in the blog world but I have a good reason! I've been swamped in the world of SpongeBob and party preparation. My friend Carin actually had the great idea to blog about my latest party decoration but first..............I have to wish my darling boy Happy Birthday!!!! He is 5 years old today! I love you Alex!

Alex's party is a few days away and I have been burning the midnight oil getting everything ready for his party. As I said, my latest adventure was learning to make tissue poms for decorations. They are actually pretty easy and they are so beautiful. I read a lot of other party blogs and they are very popular at many parties, weddings, and showers. You just buy tissue paper of whatever color or colors you want and go nuts with it! I am sticking to yellow, blues and greens for Alex's party so here are a few I did:

I have the yellow ones in a bunch of three and they are hanging from one of our ceiling fans. I am going to make about a dozen more in various colors to hang over the dessert table and also throughout the backyard. I better get busy!

For full instructions on how to make these tissue poms click here compliments of Martha Stewart, the queen of party planning.
For Alex's birthday today I made him some 'Krabby Patty' cupcakes to take to his daycare. They turned out really cute and were very easy.

Well I must get busy with decorating chocolate dipped oreos and making more tissue poms, more to come soon!
