Everything about this AMAZING {Rainbow} Muppets Themed Birthday Party by  Deliciously Darling Events screams colorful, creative, and downright FUN! From classic Muppet song inspired signage to good ol’ fashioned jokester props á la Fozzi Bear, Dina (a self-proclaimed party-plan-aholic) incorporated so many favorites into this fantastic celebration that will leave you singing “mahna mahna”! I’m also really loving the trendy washi tape adorning the white ceramic vases,  gum ball machine & more.

  • “Fozzi Bear Joke Shop” with rubber chickens, huge glasses & more silly stuff :P
  • Layered rainbow jello in decorative cups, complete with fondant eyeballs
  • A gorgeous ruffle cake with incredible fondant “muppet letters”
  • Build your own banjo station, a muppet show & “Gozno the Great’s” obstacle course

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Dina

My son, Malik, just loves the Muppets! He fell in love with them instantly. Just looking at him watch the original Muppets Movie (circa 1979) brought back lots of childhood memories. I remember watching the Muppet Show with my parents. So a Muppets themed birthday it was. The Muppet characters are so colorful & playful and I knew that I wanted to capture that in the design so I went with a rainbow pallet.

This party was a little challenging in the sense that I really wanted it to be “inspired” rather than character-image driven. That’s where the idea came of turning the characters into the letters of my kiddo’s name and having that be the “glue” that ties the party together. I came across a very talented artist, Mike Boon, who actually created a Muppet Letter Alphabet. He created Malik’s Muppety name logo that was used throughout the party – from the straw flags to the cake toppers.

The kids tables had wooden plates and buckets that contained beautiful stamped spoons and Izzie sparkling juice, a straw and a napkin. The kids loved the fact they had their very own bucket of “uten-sacles” as my son calls them {utensils + tentacles = uten-sacles}. I created simple but adorable centerpieces using fresh flowers from Trader Joes and a paper embellishment that I made. The white ceramic vases were decorated using washi tape.

For the dessert table banners, I enlisted the help of the Glitter Whisperer herself, Kristy from The Purple Pug. She created the absolutely beautiful Happy Birthday Malik banner and the “mahna mahna” billboards. I feel so special that she created one of her new designs for Malik’s party! The Animal, Dr. Teeth & St. Pepper vintage posters were created by Nick from Retro Art Prints. The quality of these prints is incredible. I loved the pictures so much I have them hanging in my house. The confetti garland hanging above Dr. Teeth’s candy table was created by Peas and Thank yous. I just love how they look hanging above the candy table.

Naturally our favor station had to be themed and my son helped pick the theme. We decided on a Fozzi Bear Joke Shop table filled with silly items that the kids {and} adults can enjoy. I tried to really go with what Fozzi uses in the movies, little rubber chickens, over-sized glasses, mustache & eye glasses and of course whoopee cushions. I think the parents may have enjoyed this item the most. The kids seem to have this befuddled look on their faces and one parent was like “no worries, I’ll show you as soon as we get home”.

Dr Teeth’s Candy station was my favorite. The phenomenal artwork by Nick from Retro Art Print just “made” this table incredible. I knew the minute I saw this poster that I had to have a Dr. Teeth Candy station to display it on! The candy was beautiful and colorful. Vintage Confections’ created the most adorable filigree letters and numbers. I just love them. For the jar tags, I knew that I wanted to work in the “Life’s a Happy Song” Song. So I created these little tags that looked like old school movie boards and wrote out the lyrics to the song. What’s my favorite tag? Why, “Life’s a fillet of fish” of course!

The children enjoyed sitting down at Kermit’s Build-a-Banjo station and creating their very own paper banjo. I prepped the banjos ahead of time to save little fingers the trouble of putting it all together. Assembly is so easy and inexpensive. Thank you to the Home Depot for giving me a TON of these paint stirrers! It was so cute watching the kids create and play their own little banjos. The girls enjoyed decorating head bands at Miss Piggy’s headband decorating table. The kids also enjoyed watching their very own Puppet show with Kermit and Animal stopping by to say hi. The kids also really enjoyed the bouncy house and “Gozno the Great’s” obstacle course.

I have a little bit of a sweet tooth, okay it is a huge sweet tooth. I love all things sweet so when I was sketching out the desserts table I knew I needed a really cool backdrop and a really awesome cake! For the backdrop, I used beautiful fringed garlands from The The Polka dot Market and a little Gonzo being carried away by a bunch of balloons. Gonzo and the balloons was a reference to the very first Muppet movie and my son’s favorite part of that movie. The ruffled rainbow cake was made by my sweet cousin Reema Hafez. She and her girls flew down to attend Malik’s party. Reema is an incredible baker. She whipped up the animal cookies and the French Macarons as well. The incredible fondant work was by Brittany of Edible Details. I just have to say she is a total joy to work with and so very sweet! She created the Muppet letter toppers on the cake that left everyone speechless when the cake was brought out. I love all of her other creations for this party especially the clock for the “Time to Meet the Muppets” push up pops. The Marshmallow Studio created adorable Animal Marshmallow pops. Malik couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw it. They were not only super cute but delicious as well. Other yummy items on the dessert table included: rainbow jello {made by cousin Amy}, popcorn, red velvet and confetti cupcakes, brownie push-up pops, sugar cookies, muppet cake pops and French macarons. All the cake plates & acrylic stands, paper favor bags and straws came from Shop Sweet Lulu.

This party was so wonderful and a memory I will always cherish. It was so nice to have family down to celebrate with Malik. He ran up to me and told me that it was the best day ever and thanked me for planning his party. It was the sweetest moment of the whole day. Of course his face was covered in face paint, smudged cotton candy and chocolate but it was still the sweetest moment. Thank you to the wonderful Lauren from Lauren Nicole Studios for capturing all of these moments!

    What an amazing party! There are a million cute details and ideas to steal/borrow. I love how you used the washi tape, and the whole party had such a fun personality to it. I don't think the Muppets could have thrown a better party themselves! Great job.

    Awesome! Very original! For Mike Boon’s letters, did you just print and cut or did you add your own eyes, mouth, hair, etc…? The letters look 3-D.
