|The kids favors were a small firework bucket that contained Pop Rocks (which JD now LOVES- click for the video), glow bracelets, a firework pinwheel, Starbursts, Lifesaver firecrackers, and firework bouncy balls. Adults could also take home chocolate covered marshmallows and Lifesaver firecrackers (which I obviously made way too many of).|
|These were a big hit! I dipped marshmallows in chocolate and then either sprinkles, graham cracker crumbs, or toasted coconut. I used the firework pics instead of candy sticks |
|Morning rain meant a nervous last-minute call to the party rental place for a tent. They came through. If you live on LI, I highly recommend Rainbow Party Rentals.|
|Dollar store decorations behind a bench = great place to take pics. Here are my boys with their babysitter.|
|Our best attempt at getting a pic of JD with his friends. Don't they all look super excited to be here?|
|The consensus was that my sparkler candles were mean. I thought they were awesome.|
Of course I was a bad blogger and didn't get pics of the food or dessert tables before people started digging in, but you get the idea.
|Heros, salads, and (JD's only request) mac 'n cheese from a local deli|
|I made chocolate dipped marshmallows and rice krispie treats, chocolate fireworks, and cupcakes with cute firecracker picks. Can you tell I love to make sweets & don't enjoy cooking too much? haha|
And here is the party video.
