I love the little set-up. Sometimes, it just about using what you already have...
Koi fish cookies (by Montreal confections), candy sushi, and kiddie sake....
The detail on those cookies is amazing!
This candy sushi variety features a jumbo marshmallow, a twizzler, a sugary stick of some kind, and little dots of "caviar" (Tanya found something amazing at the dollar store, but you can make it work with "nerds" candies.) The wrapper is just fruit-by-the-foot.
Rice crispies, gummy candies, and more fruit-by-the-foot. It looks great, and the kids loved them.
We used a graphic set from lettering delights to create our decorations.
But Tanya also wanted it to have an old-school vibe to it, so we opted out of the more usual fonts for this party and went with a sketchy notebook-type font. "Miso happy you came" cracks me up every time.
Googly-eyed sushi, and long green rolls of sushi for favors (actually candy inside, everything you need to get your kids hyper for days.)
In passing, the little cart is from Ikea: it's mine and it will be popping up a lot on the blog.
Kiddie sake. The other jug 'o juice is marked "kiddie shochu." I don't know what that is, but we looked up "drinks to have with sushi" and discarded anyone who said "a nice cold beer." ha.
The table set-up above, and the birthday girl below. The girls made their own sushi by pressing sticky rice and their choice of topping into silicone ice cube trays. Once they pressed everything in, they were able to pop out their sushi. It was a big hit!
Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into Eva's sushi party!
