I can’t believe I’m typing this, but Bubbles turns 3-years-old this month. Seriously, I know the cliches about growing up so fast and how time flies – but it’s just so true. She’s more preschooler than toddler, and lets us know what a “big girl” she is on a regular basis.
Her birthday party will be this weekend, and when offered multiple choices on party themes she, unsurprisingly, chose Disney Planes. So this week I’ve been working on a few favors and supplies. I still need to finish up the party favors and treat bags, plus finalize my cake design. But I think I have all the table decorations and paper goods so not too much left to do.
Which is good, because Bubbles is super-excited about her party. She asks every morning if it’s her birthday yet, rattles off the guest list, and asks about her Disney Planes cake. She also has invited pretty much everyone at any store we’ve been to in the past two weeks.
One of the first ideas I had for party treats was cotton candy. It’s a fun treat for kids and it’s so soft and fluffy – just like a cloud. I thought they’d be the perfect match for a Planes party. I made the cotton candy myself with the cotton candy maker our friends at Nostalgia sent us. I love it because all you need are a few hard candies (I used Jolly Ranchers) and you can make them any color you want (plus you can do sugar-free!).
Click the image below for a printable .pdf version of the “Fluffy Candy Clouds” labels. Fold them in half over the bags of cotton candy and tape or staple closed (I used double-sided tape because I don’t like staples around young kiddos if possible).
I also created a couple of signs for our party table. The first one will be set next to the drinks and reads “Chug’s Fueling Station” (Chug is the fuel truck in the Planes movie). The second one will be placed near the snacks and reads “In-Flight Snacks” so our guests can grab-and-go and not miss a minute of the “in-flight entertainment”.
