i am finally getting around to posting pictures.
i do have to say in advance...
i am thrilled with how it turned out.
he requested a duck hunting party.
NOT Duck Commander
(which we LOVE and would have made my job easier)
but he just simply wanted
duck hunting party.
and it was.....
he requested a
cake. (meaning no fake duck/toys on top)
i made a base out of a sheet cake.
layers of cake
the duck shape with a knife.
for his head i used
rice krispie treat.
but i tried it
i liked it a lot
it worked great for the
water and green head
i used a chocolate chip for the eyes
added a little extra detail
we served it with ice cream cups.
I didn't get a good picture of the table decor
you can see I used a simple camo table cloth
a strip of burlap for a table runner
a porcelin duck we had
a mallard picture
and lots of balloons!
for the game
i made a duck hunting room
i guess you could call it
real life Duck Hunt
(like the old Nintendo game)
i used our dinning room
moved the table to the window
placed blue "water" table cloths down
our house plants on top and around
the place camo colored balloons to the plants
taped pictures of ducks to the balloons
added a few
of the hubby's decoys to the water
then its get duck hunting time
(with Nerf guns of course)
the BIG kids enjoyed it more than the little ones.
it was pretty cool when the Nerf bullets would hit the balloons.
all and all it was a GREAT party.
the previous weekend
he was able to go hunting.
and he is hooked just like his dad.
we made the pinata too...
my first ever tutorial post...
