So you've decided to a cupcake theme party. Aren't your guests lucky! Of course we know what you'll serve for dessert but what else can you do to incorporate the theme into your party.
You can set the stage for your party by sending out cupcake shaped invitations. In it request that they bring a short 'ode to the cupcake' with them to be shared at the party, such as my favorite: "small and sweet I do desire, just big enough for one. Unfortunately I eat 10 at a time and now I weigh a ton". Make sure you give them an example. And once they arrive have everyone write down their 'fantasy cupcake'. At some point in the party hand out pencil and paper to everyone and as each one is read aloud (by the host) ask your guests to write down who they think authored it. The one who guessed the most correctly wins a small prize. And also vote on which poem is the best and that person will also win a small prize.
Investing in a cupcake stand will not only showcase the party's dessert in a beautiful way - but it can also serve as your centerpiece!
At the party you can have everyone decorate a cupcake to take home with them (not necessarily the gorgeous cupcakes you have planned to serve - you want those to steal the show!). Provide unfrosted cupcakes, 2 or 3 frosting choices and LOTS of embellishments (sprinkles, nuts, candies, nuts, etc.). Don't forget to have cupcake boxes on hand so that guests can take their creations home).
If you're not sending your guests home with cupcakes, then send them home with cute cupcake party favors. These can easily be found and can include cupcake shaped bookmarks, faux cupcake photo holders, cupcake shaped candles to just name a few.
Wishing you delicious fun at your cupcake party!
