If the devil is, indeed, in the details… then indeed, my very favorite part of most things is filled with ooey gooey devil filling. It’s true, sadly true. If you know me at all, then you know my motto: Why make it simple when you can make it completely complicated? And on that note, here are Harry’s Dr. Pepper Bowling Birthday Party details…as it was deviliciously filled with details….which honestly, weren’t all that complicated. Follow me.
First the gift bags. My lovely mother in law was gracious enough to stop at the Dr Pepper museum in Waco as she was driving to Austin, and the Dr Pepper museum in Waco is filled with all kinds of Dr Pepper goodness. Trinkets and bobbles and other random plastic items, all celebrating the crazy water. She got some of this.
There were Dr Pepper pencils.
Also Dr Pepper Jelly Beans.
And then we bagged up this goodness for distribution.
The bags are made from 1) lunch sacks 2) printed color copies of the invitation, cut 3) sticky glue from a glue stick 4) holes made from a hole punch 5) ribbon
Then the bowling trophies. Because bowling trophies! And yes everyone gets a trophy because it’s a birthday party and they’re eight. And also because unnecessary plastic items and children’s birthday parties go together like salt and pepper.
I ordered these from Oriental Trading and the stickers were 6 to a pack from the Dr Pepper museum.
Then the cake. It’s Dr. Pepper cake. Because that’s fun. It was easy to make and much less expensive (although more time consuming) than just ordering a cake. I’ll post the Dr. Pepper Cake Recipe, probably tomorrow. Watch for it.
Also. Dr Pepper Ice cream. Which was not nearly frozen enough but no one really cared. I’ll post the recipe for Dr. Pepper Ice Cream Recipe here, probably tomorrow, too. You’ll like it.
And then soon, I’ll post how it all turned out.
You’ll want to see that.
