Pretty Penguin Party

Party Recap

My little 2 year old is obsessed with Penguins. I decided to throw her a pretty little penguin party this year. I mixed bold black and white patterns with pink, aqua and yellow for a fun party spread.

Party Highlights

  • Party Favors

    Each little one who came to help celebrate Emma’s party got an adorable Penguin hair clippie made by So Cuties Boutique attached to some S’mores Flavored gourmet popcorn for mom and dad from Popped. The favor tags said “Thanks for POPPING by my Penguin Party”!

  • What People Ate

    We had chocolate cupcakes with pink buttercream frosting, vanilla cupcakes with bright aqua and pink coconut frosting,and chocolate cupcakes with cookies and cream frosting all made by The Cupcakery. These delicious cupcakes were made even sweeter with the addition of penguin and snowflake 3-D and flat fondant cupcake toppers made by Brittany at Edible Details. I could not be more impressed with how fantastic her toppers looked and how well they matched the party. We had penguin cake pops made by Candy’s Cake Pops. They were cookies and cream flavored and were as moist and yummy as they were adorable. Beth at Sunshine Bakes made us some amazing penguin, snowflake, and monogram sugar cookies. We had yummy pink raspberry and blue almond coconut macarons from Le Bonbon and some fantastic coke float and peppermint flavored fudge from Jewel of the Lion. I used black and aqua striped straws and ribbon to accent the macarons and fudge and also make them easy to pick up and eat! Everyone snacked on plenty of penguin foods like fish shaped tuna and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and goldfish crackers, veggies, fruit and cheese.

  • What People Drank

    To drink, we made hot cocoa and coffee for the coffee bar. The hot cocoa mix is one of my favorite (and super easy) recipes. I’ll be sharing the recipe later this week! For the add-ins, we had marshmallows, cinnamon, sugar, creamer, peppermint syrup, pumpkin syrup and chocolate stir spoons. The kiddos enjoyed regular and chocolate milk (keeping with the party colors) in glass jars with cute striped straws and ribbon and party circles wrapped around them. The chocolate milk was a big hit!
