🎶 So much to learn about, It will make you want to shout, BLIPPI!! 🎶
If you are the parent of a toddler, Blippi probably needs no introduction. A child entertainer and educator on YouTube, Blippi is most recognized for his super catchy songs and wardrobe staples that include a blue and orange beanie cap, orange suspenders, a bow tie and glasses. Seriously if you haven’t been subjected to countless hours of Blippi by your little one, you are truly missing out! Lol.
So you can probably imagine our excitement when we were asked to create a dessert table themed after this YouTube sensation!
We just love party themes that allow us to be creative and this one was the holy grail of that! We knew right off the bat we needed to incorporate Blippi’s outfit into the table (because after all, his clothing is what makes him Blippi) so we started by making some really big glasses to essentially serve as our backdrop!
Once the glasses were complete and on our white backdrop, we immediately knew something was missing. Quite frankly it was just too plain and didn’t exemplify the fun and colorful character we see in all his videos. After lots and lots of research (i.e. lots of YouTube watching), it finally dawned on us that there is definitely a theme to Blippi’s videos and that’s ball-pit balls!!
We knew we wanted to maintain the blue/orange color scheme so we separated those out and used them for the backdrop and saved the other colors for the table top.
If you haven’t already guessed, the party planning process can be slow and tedious (for us anyway) when we’re not 100 percent happy with the results. At this point, we loved the backdrop but still felt like we were missing something. (Insert that fun yellow emoji on your phone with his finger on his chin!) Thankfully the answer came to us in the form of Blippi’s hat and bow tie!!
We made both the hat and bow tie out of cardboard and poster paper and couldn’t be happier with how it tied the whole table together!
The final step was to decorate the table top and get it ready for all the goodies that would go on it!
To give the deserts some height, we filled up two orange buckets with the remaining balls we had and put the cake stands inside. We also knew we wanted to incorporate the Blippi introduction scene into the table so we created this faux iPad screen and put a still photo of the intro on it. We were convinced that only kids would understand what we were trying to do here but we were pleasantly surprised when adults recognized it too! (It’s really the little things that make us happy! Lol). We also made some themed cupcake toppers to really bring the whole table together.
The finally step was to add some buttons to the table and we were all done!
We can’t say enough how much we loved putting this dessert table together and we hope we’ve served enough inspiration so that you too can throw your very own Blippi Party!
Until next time!
