On Friday, my youngest son turned 8. He requested to have a Hobbit Themed party and invited a dozen little boys to join in on the Expected Party. Luckily, I put Pinterest, Google, and my trusty Silhouette Cameo to work.
Of course, I had to make a sign like the one Bilbo Baggins had posted to his fence. I found 12x12 paper at JoAnn's that I thought look rather Lord of the Ringish. I then cut the letters from Party Business font using black vinyl. I adhered the finished product to chip board for stability. It hung on our front door during the party.
Originally we had planned to make every child a bow and arrow made out of popsicle sticks and Q-tips. Unfortunately, I gave up since we couldn't get them to work. I did, however, hang the picture of Smaug the dragon that we were going to shoot the arrows at. I bought this sketch pattern from the Silhouette store. I drew him using the adjustable pen holder from Amy Chomas. I love the way it turned out!
What is a party of any kind without a cake?! This is the Hobbit cake that I made. The Hobbit Holes were from little bunt cake pans. I thought they turned out rather cute! I frosted the cake with Cool Whip's frozen whipped cream frosting and it was very good! Tyler built the Lego kit, Gandalf returns.
I am going to end this post here for now since it is rather long. I forgot to take pictures of the invites and thank you cards. I also have a banner, all of which I made on the Silhouette! I will post them later. Please stop back my friends!
