For Ben's party this year, I thought it would be a great idea to take a bunch of boys somewhere other than my house...somewhere like an indoor climbing gym? YES! Ben loved the idea, and it went along perfectly with the Adventure Time theme he chose. So I designed the invitations, and looked forward to not having a massive mess and sweaty boys running all around my house! Haha!
I've never been so happy with a cake I've made before. Isn't this Finn cake cute? Or should I say "flippin' awesome"?? Let it be known, I'm not the best at decorating cakes, but this one was really fun and pretty simple. Just a lot of piping and some black gel icing (leftover from Hannah's Beatles cupcakes). We also had green frosted cupcakes, you know, trying to make them look like Finn and Jake's treehouse.
I really took the easy way out on this party after I discovered these free printables. All of the party decorations were downloaded and printed from this site and it saved me a ton of time, which was good because we had two days to pull this together after coming home from a family vacation. Ta-da! Everyone learned to climb, including Olivia (who turned out to be a party pooper, quite literally, but that's another story). The party was so much fun for Ben and his friends, and it was GREAT to come home to a clean house!
