Matty's Angry Bird-day Party 2014

Like all 7 year olds, our son Matty loves anything that has to do with video games  and in this house full of boys, Angry Birds is a favorite!  Planning this party was so fun! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed planning this special day!  

You know I am always happy when I can reuse decor from other parties and this wreath happens to be one of my favorites!  I have used it several times since first making it for our Dr. Seuss Party.  The tutorial for making can be found here: Ribbon Wreath tutorial
 This time around I had the treat table inside mostly because it was 107 degrees that day and we figured most guests would be inside.  But I actually think it worked out great and might be our new spot from now on!

 I made this last minute letter for the snack table and love the way it turned out!  SQUAWK!
 The snacks:  Pretzels aka Twigs
 TNT Brownies with little white fondant rectangles.  I used food writer markers to write TNT on them.
 Birds nests.  I made these before for our owl party.  Always a big hit and so easy to make!
 Sugar cookie piggies.  The snouts are made with green Wilton melts!
 I am super proud of these marshmallow pops!  I used a rolled out starburst to cut out the beaks.
 Iced tea...TN-TEA!
 Piggy Punch was just pineapple juice and sprite.

 Our backyard before the guests arrived

 And of course the piece de resistance... a full sized Angry Birds game!! I will have the tutorial for how to build the slingshot soon!  Basically it's made of PVC pipe that we spray painted brown.

 The birds are balls that I painted the faces on.  I made some ball piggies too.

 Our new favorite party thing is a photo booth.  The pictures we get are always my favorite! 
 Favors were easy.  I just bought a ton of these Angry Birds candy boxes at Walmart.
 I used Matty's stuffed birds around for decorations.

 I found this pinata at Target.
 I had planned on making cupcakes but then I saw this cake at Sam's club and it was perfect!

All in all the day was amazing!  I wish it hadn't been so hot but we still had a ton of fun!
