Walker's 7th Birthday - Police Officer Party

Walker's Police Party Details - When Walker decided that he wanted a Police Birthday Party, I jumped right on that!  The police theme is not one that I see often, so I was super excited to take his idea & run with it.  Our party color scheme was black, yellow, and grey.  It all turned out super cute, and my little officer had a grand time!

Dessert Table - Desserts are the name of the game for birthday celebrations, right?  We love sugar, and this dessert table did not disappoint. The cake's city skyline was the perfect backdrop for the vintage fondant car topper from Edible Details. Brittany also made 3D fondant cupcake toppers for Walker - police badges and police hats.  Amazing & delicious!!!!  Fondant Oreos from Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses also graced the dessert table.  Maria is amazing!  I am never disappointed.  My favorite Oreo?  The ones with the little donuts.  Aren't they precious?  Cake pops from Roni at Roni's Sugar Creations were shaped into police uniforms, & were so moist and delicious that I was so sad to see them get eaten.  I am already scheming up an excuse to order some more cake pops.  We also were a little cliche and served donuts at our Police Party.  They were a big hit with the kiddos!

Drink Station - I used the drink station as a place to offer a little something for the parents.  A Hot Chocolate Bar!  I decorated the cups to match the police party theme, and offered marshmallows and chocolate chips to accompany the hot chocolate.  We also served lemonade and bottled water.  The bottled water was party ready with personalized labels from Jaimee at Bushel and Peck Paper.

Party Printables - Gretchen of Three Little Monkeys Studio designed Walker's Retro Police party printable collection.  From the invitation to the 'Walker is 7' banner, I was in love.  Gretchen is a dream to work with, and she caught my vision and truly took it to the next level.  Her vintage, retro style pulled everything together beautifully!  View the Retro Police Party collection HERE.

Party Decorations - Of all the decorations, my favorite is the Custom Party Wreath from my shop, Sweet Georgia Sweet.  This is a brand, new shop addition, and will be fully customizable for differing party themes.  The handcuffs, police hat, and the sparkly number 7 set off the wreath beautifully.  I loved the way it all turned out, & Walker was one happy little officer!  The Large Black Monogrammed Burlap Topiaries and the Ribbon Garland on the dessert table, as well as the Large Monogrammed Ribbon Topiary at the Drink Station are also brand new additions to the shop.  They were a lot of fun to create, & created such a WOW factor!!!!  The Drink Station also featured a custom tassel garland from Tara of One Stylish Party.  It was just the right finishing touch for the decorations.

Party Shirt - Walker had a custom birthday shirt made especially for him by Michele of Sweet Threads Clothing Co.  The custom design was perfect, and Walker & I both loved this shirt!

Party Games - As if the party wasn't enough fun, I threw in some fun party games to take the sugared-up kiddos over the edge.  It was a blast!  By far, the favorite game was the Donut Game.  Their little hands were handcuffed behind their backs, & they had to take a bite out of a moving donut.  It was hilarious!!!!
