I love the originality of this “Sugar Daddy” Father’s Day Party designed by Brittany of GreyGrey Designs. Her work is so creative and her attention to detail is unsurpassed. You can see more of her work at http://www.greygreydesigns.com/.
In Brittany’s words: I always think that Father’s Day is a particularly hard holiday to celebrate when it comes to originality. So, I started brainstorming and with the help of my absolutely brilliant brother-in-law, who is without a doubt the most linguistically creative person I have ever met, I decided on the “Sugar Daddy” theme. Now, obviously this could be suggestive (try googling Sugar Daddy!), but if you keep it absolutely literal in your interpretation, it is super sweet and an adorable theme that dads of any age would love! I knew I wanted to use that iconic Sugar Daddy packaging as a jumping off point, so I contacted my dear friends Do and J at Piggy Bank Parties and asked them if they could help me with some printables. And, as usual, they exceeded my expectations.
Since sugar daddies are caramel candies, I knew that I wanted to do a caramel cake. And most major grocery stores offer caramel cakes in their bakeries every day. I dressed this one up using unwrapped sugar daddies. Then, I stuck some wrapped ones out of the top.
To make the starbursts, I used a simple cardboard cake round that you can get at any craft store. I spray-painted them yellow and then glued the suckers on using hot glue. Then, I made a simple paper rosette for the middle and finished it off with a yellow heart. You could achieve this look with any candy bar or sucker!
For the drinks, I used Target brand frappuccinos and wrapped them with Piggy Bank Parties’ adorable drink wraps. Then, I wrapped the necks in red yarn and stuck a bamboo skewer through them. On the skewers there were red heart-shaped gumdrops from the dollar store. The red heart gumdrops pick up on the hearts in the printable banner.
Thank you Brittany for sharing this wonderful Father’s Day theme with Pretty My Party!
