I love my dad (goes without saying really)! He is a hard-worker, type A personality, Gator/University of Florida fan-atic and a great provider. He's very smart and well-rounded, owns two businesses (along with my mom), works a full-time job, has a real estate license (just for kicks and giggles) and travels the state for all of these business ventures. It makes me tired just thinking about it all!
Anyway, when thinking about his party, we KNEW it had to be orange and blue/University of Florida Gator related. I worked with my talented friend Lauren McKinsey on this gator for the invitation, and he was PERFECT for my dad's party! I love him!
We had "Great Gator" Chocolate Cake, "Orange - Blue" Cupcake Bites, "Big Gator" cookies, "Big Orange" Cupcakes and "Blue"-Berry mini cheesecakes. No shortage of sugar! Of course, we also had barbecue, but who wants barbecue when you can have sugar?
The Superchick. I added my own bowtie to him, to make him perfectly complete for the occasion. I loved how it turned out!
Hobby Lobby and wrapped it in ribbon, made the two top levels out of cake rounds glued together and added ribbon and paper and used two blue planters in between the levels. of course I added another gator to the top level in among the "grass" cupcake holders! I used cupcake toppers from The Purple Pug which she should be selling soon in her store. They really are GREAT! I love them, super sparkly and magnificent!
