My daughter just turned 6! We celebrated with a "Jewel Party" theme. She invited 11 little girls over and we made jewel crafts, played jewel -themed games and won jewelry prizes! :-)
The pink cake featured a large pink glass paperweight surrounded by smaller pink glass gems. Pink. Pink. PINK! Here's the 3-layer cake before I set the jewel on top. I used 5 popsicle sticks trimmed down to support the weight of the large glass diamond.
The cupcakes were strawberry with, naturally, pink frosting. Assorted jewel rings topped them off as favors for the guests.
For drinks I made custom labels for pink and purple gatorade bottles. The colors match the party and personalized labels make sure everyone knows which drink is theirs. I used the jewel art to match the invites (which I'll show later) and added "You are dazzling!"
Each invited guest had one with her name already printed on it, then the blank ones were for the moms or just extras to have on hand.
In addition to the cupcakes, I set out a bowl of red and green grapes; a bowl of red and purple jello jiggler cubes; purple gum balls etc. The first two of which you can sugar to look more jewel-like. Who knew but there was a run on the jello of all things!
