I was asked to put together a Blues Clues party for a little girl on Tuesday and the party was Saturday. While still working a full time job, I only had a few evenings to put it all together- but I was up for the challenge.
I found a blue polka dot fabric that was great for the backdrop. I added a “Robin” banner that I created on the computer. I surrounded each side with a couple balloons.
I wanted to use a couple of popular characters to be the focal points on each end of the table. I purchased a shovel and pail and painted the faces of the popular characters “Shovel & Pail.” I filled the pail with floral foam, covered it with gumballs and stuck marshamallow pops out of the top.
For the other side of the table I created “Mailbox.” I painted a mailbox. I placed him on a stick surrounded by a little white fence and fake grass.
I cheated for my cookies. I was making the cake which took a lot of time, so to keep down on my baking, I purchased sugar cookies from my local grocery store. I made paw prints out of fondant and added them to the cookies. I thought they looked adorable!
I also had blue popcorn boxes that I filled with cotton candy and named them “Blue's Dog Fur.” (Yes, a little strange when you think of the name, but it was fitting- I had to!)
The table also had Tickety Tock soda pops, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered oreos, doggie treats (scooby doo graham crackers), and cupcakes with toppers.
I created Handy Dandy Notebooks for the kids which had coloring pages of all the characters inside.
The cake was the hit of the party. I created a bunch of the characters out of fondant as well as Blue’s House. I dyed the cake mix blue, which was the hit! When they cake was cut the kids yelled “IT”S BLUE!” They were so excited to eat a cake that was blue.
