A Fantastic Robot Birthday Party {Part I}

Here we are!

I am so proud {and happy} to share these photos with you today... This robot party has been a super good challenge and it came up really nice. So please, enjoy the pics and share your thoughts with me in the comment section.

The party set was designed by talented Jayme of jaymemarie on Etsy. It included the invitations, the "Happy Birthday" banner, Thank you notes, cupcake toppers and bottle labels {that I used for the candy jars}. Jayme made some color changes to suit the party color scheme and she was a breeze to work with...

I chose a navy blue fabric as a background so that the bright orange color of the banner would literally POP.  There was a lot of wind that morning and I had a hard time to keep the table cloth in place. Ideally next time I would love to have table cloth made of fabric...

The party took place at my client's place here in Singapore. It was supposed to happen on Sunday late afternoon, but we had to change our initial plan {a week before the party} to Saturday morning. My client cam up with the WONDERFUL idea of having a brunch-birthday party with food such as bagel with salmon  & cream cheese, sausage sandwiches, croissant, cinnamon rolls, gorgeous fruit platter and a choice of jam, peanut butter etc... to spread on bagels. The coffee machine was part of the fun and parents really enjoyed their cappuccinos & espressos "early" in the morning!

The birthday cake was ordered from a famous local "patisserie" called The Patissier. They tailored the cake to look like the robot on the invitation. The base was a strawberry shortcake and was actually delicious...

I wanted to create a three-dimensional table setting, and used foam cubes to display the candy jars and birthday cake. I then covered them with orange paper to match the rest of the display. It was a long process, but it remind me of when I was a little girl making the cubes out of paper. Something I will teach my daughter this week {she's looking forward to it}.

The vanilla cupcakes were yummy especially the ones with the chocolate frosting. They disappeared quite quickly which is always a good sign... Ahhh, you can't have a party without cupcakes!

Last but not least {for today} are the party favors... My client suggested to have pencil cases as it is "back to school" time and all kids love playing with their marker. I spent an entire day scouring for robot fabrics as nothing on Etsy really caught our eyes. I visited every single places I knew in Singapore were selling fabrics but was very unsuccessful. Until I was reminded about Fat Connection, an online shop selling Japanese fabrics. I was lucky enough to find the perfect design in our party colors!

The pencil cases were all handmade by me for this party. A labor of love, but it's so nice to give away to your guest meaningful gifts they will enjoy for a long time. Well worth it!
I wrapped them in transparent plastic bags and used the Thank you notes as tags {punching two holes on each sides and fixing them to the bag with blue or orange ribbons}.
-> you know who to contact for your handmade party favors now!

Tomorrow I will post more photos about the craft and other details that made this party so special to everyone... In the meantime a big THANK YOU to all for your words of support during the past three weeks, I hope you are enjoying the photos and getting inspired for the next party in the calendar.

I will also write a post later this week with a shopping guide and where to buy the above supplies in Singapore. I am sure it will help many of you!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
