customer: a tested hypothesis

I love to see little scientists in action and at Kenton’s six birthday party a few weeks ago, he and his friends bubbled, poured and tested to prove their hypothesis: science birthday parties bubble over with fun!

Kristie did a wonderful job of decorating and planning the experiments. She used our science party printable collection and our orange and white polka dot table decor. And she raved about our custom science beaker and element butter cookies (baked and shipped from our partners at  Sweet Tooth Cottage). Told you guys they were yummy! {Thanks so much for letting us share Kenton’s birthday Kristie!}

customer: Hayden is mad for science

I actually planned to show you more of our recent art party photo shoot today, until I received this fabulous mad scientist party from our customer, Cindy. She and the birthday boy, Hayden, planned this party together for almost a year. In her words, “Hayden loves science and wanted his friends to enjoy some fun science experiments.”

As those who stop in often know, my son Alex was my inspiration for our science collection (my many posts showing his party last fall) and it just thrills me to see Hayden and his friends having so much fun.

The kids received goggles and lab coats at the “Scientist Check-in Station,” then went on to go through a retinal scan performed by Hayden using a large glow stick and finally received a mini makeover (aka mad scientist hair) before entering the laboratory (aka the backyard). Hayden’s dad, Steve, was the head “Mad Scientist” and led all the experiments with his very own lab coat and name tag, Dr. so and so. {Love that!}

The kids got to perform several experiements. Isn’t the slime fabulous! Like me, Cindy picked up a ton of supplies from Steve Spangler Science.

And this one is a carbon dioxide bubbles experiment. In Cindy’s words “Carbon dioxide bubbles were made using a ‘special’ jar purchased from Steve Spangler Science. Steve had to use dry ice to make this experiment work. It was a big hit! The kids loved wearing the glove that made the carbon dioxide bubble not burst. The kids also did an experiment to identify the different density of liquids. They just loved seeing the magic of the colors separating!”

Here’s a shot of Hayden and his fellow scientists. Happy Birthday Hayden! And thank you Cindy for allowing us to share Hayden’s big day. You did a terrific job!

If you’d like to read more about Hayden’s birthday and see more pictures, hop over to Cindy’s family blog, Party of Five. As always, I hope you’re inspired!

science party peek

We had such a fabulous time this weekend with my son’s science birthday party! I got numerous hugs (we’re huggers) and “love you mom”s… it was great.

I have lots and lots of details to share, but I need a few days to organize it all. Until then, here’s a shot of the kids working with one of four experiments.

Happy Monday everyone!

I’ve been so busy over the past few weeks launching new collections (candy corn, harvest and spooked pumpkin) that I’ve not had time to post about all the fun things we have planned for my oldest son’s sixth birthday this weekend, a science birthday party! For those who stop in often, you’ve likely read me ramble on about how much he loves science (and how my youngest loves dinosaurs). Well being me, we just had to create something unique to celebrate his big day. Plus, I love the idea of an educational birthday party!

So if you’ve not seen it yet, check out the science collection storyboard that I posted a few weeks ago and then take a look at these darling bubbling beaker cookies,

periodic table cookies (I love the Helium one!),

and yep, our cupcake printable designs in these beautiful rounds. Sue (and team) of Sweet Tooth Cottage hand decorated each of these lovely cookies and I couldn’t be more pleased with how perfect they are. And these are just pics inside the bakers box; wait until you see them in our cello toppers! And when we start shipping them they will be packaged and sealed in 4″ cello bags which are a perfect fit for our custom cello toppers… did I just write that…  hmmm… well I’ve been dying to tell you and so now I’ve let the secret out. A much more formal announcement with all the details will be coming closer to the end of the month, but until then, just imagine a yummy soft butter cookie that will melt in your mouth and match your table perfectly!

Happy Friday everyone and much, much more to come next week on the party including table decor, crafts, science experiments, and oh, yes, more goodies!
