Penguin Party Continued

Picture Heavy Post!

As I mentioned, finding penguin themed birthday decor was painfully impossible, so I had to custom make everything. Following the colors set by the invitation meant pulling together a party in orange, black and white. Not traditionally very girlie colors, but I tried to use them in a way that was obviously meant for a girl. 

(Click to enlarge.) 
orange and white polka dots, black and white houndstooth and stripes along with a geometric print and plenty of solids. 

the cupcake tower
penguin face, penguin silhouette 5's, orange silhouettes and monogrammed toppers designed by my hub. He also designed the tented cards that display the food names. The cake topper on top was found at Hobby Lobby, I added a coordinated bow to match the invitations. The houndstooth cupcake wrappers came from etsy. 

other food
goldfish crackers just happened to match the theme and colors. Houndstooth cones in the background, made from scrapbook paper, hold white cheddar popcorn.

pimento cheese penguins and polka dot cookies

yummy vanilla ice cream snowballs

So, whatcha think? Did I Tim Gunn it (make it work)? She has already put in a request for next years party...:)
