Barbie Food, Pop Corn Cones, and Cupcake Topper Printable

I hope you all had a very Happy Easter!  We had a wonderful time; baskets, eggs, sugar.  Other than the fact that it snowed and Cindy almost wore her snow suit during the egg hunt it was great.

 As you know I was working on a Barbie party and it was this weekend.  It came out really nice and the birthday girl was happy.  That's all that matter to me.  Lot's of party stuff to share but lets start with the food.  All the yummy sugary treats.

 We set out a basket of individual bagged chips for the kids and had this amazing salsa and chips for the parents [I'll have to ask my friend for the recipe].  And also for parents and healthy kids, veggie cups and we had a big fruit bowl.  For those of us who eat junk food, I used candy melts and drizzled on pretzel sticks.  I also used the candy melts to outline the rim of the heart shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  And I can't forget the marshmallow pops.

My favorite treat on the table were these ADORABLE pop corn cones.  Yup I love them and yup I love popcorn.  Here's the quick how to.  I created a stencil on card stock.  Roll until you have a cone and I used a hot glue gun to glue it down.  Print the cupcake toppers HERE and punch out circles.  Glue the circles to the front of the cone.  Make a few more, and then fill them with pop corn.

To make the display I used these  Styrofoam circles my cousin sent me.  Cover the top with scrap book paper, the trim with ribbon.  Then I cut an X using an Xacto knife where I want the cones to stand.  Poked it with a pencil and...

 WALA a stand.  Be sure to tape these down to the table so they don't tip over easily.

If you have wood crates you can display them like this also. 

And it isn't a party without cupcakes.  So yes I took apart the decorations from the Very Hungry Caterpillar Party and re did it for the Barbie Party.  You can find the cupcake topper printable HERE.  Her mom is a cook so she made the cupcakes, we piped them with pink frosting, and added some small pearl sprinkles.  They came out cute and yummy!

So until next time!  Happy Easter everyone.
