birthday details


Since I discovered that I can buy digital downloads off of Etsy, I’ve been going sort of crazy with it. :) I bought a few packages of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom downloads from several different designers. And who knew Chicka Chicka Boom Boom was a party theme that would already have this stuff predesigned?! So convenient!

In the cake photo above, you can see the “cupcake toppers” (from here). I printed them at regular size for the cake, but I also printed tiny ones for Isaac’s lunches this week AND for the cupcakes we had at his party.

I also bought a big set of downloads that included a design for his invitation, a banner, water bottle wrappers, thank you notes and tags to use with the favors (here). I revamped it a little by adding a photo of Isaac. AND! See how Isaac is wearing a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom shirt?! Oh yes he is!! Got that here! I know it’s sort of over-the-top for your kid to match his party….but let’s file this one under “I couldn’t help myself”. Ok? :)  Plus…he loves it.





And…one more thing! On the inside cover of the book, there is a graphic of the alphabet that looks EXACTLY like these placemats that Zaida is modeling in the photo below…


another Etsy download! (here)

Now, I might not have been tempted to add so many little details inspired by the book. But when I would come across things, I kept thinking “oh he LOVES this part!” He’s just such a detailed kid about the things he likes. And sure enough…during the party, when he kept finding things I had done, he would get SO excited! It was really sweet.

Next up is Andrew’s minecraft birthday party in June. :) So, there will definitely be some more trolling on Etsy to find fun things for his birthday.

Good weekends and Happy Mother’s Days all around!  See you on the other side!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
