BellaGrey Designs: An Angry Bird-Day Party

An Angry Bird-Day Party

Hello friends, it's Jennifer Kirlin of BellaGrey Designs here to share An Angry Bird-Day Party Inspired by the Angry Bird video game. A game where players use a slingshot to launch unhappy birds into structures and enemy pigs. 

In March I had the pleasure of designing and styling Celena Vittorio's daughter Annabella's 6th birthday party. Celena Rae is the Anthemist and in-game host for the Dallas Stars Hockey Team. You may recall in 2005, Celena was one of the Top 20 Semi-Finalists on American Idol. And as you can imagine, she is as sweet as can be! 

Celena told me Annabella loves the Angry Birds video game and wanted to make it a fun party for the kids. I loved the theme and the colors! So bright and fun! I carried these colors throughout the party. She had already sent out a generic invitation, so the creative slate was clean and up to BellaGrey Designs to fill it. Feathers were flying at the BellaGrey Designs studio as I prepped for 20 small guests to come "Crash the Party". 

I wanted the kids to know when they arrived, what the theme and colors were. I decorated the mailbox and as soon as they came into the house, they immediately knew the theme. I incorporated several elements from the popular game. You will see birdcages and nests, astro-turf, a slingshot, golden eggs, TNT boxes and wooden structures {reminiscent of what the birds knock over in the game} which held the cupcakes. I used cloud paper as the backdrop for the dessert table and the runner was astro-turf. 

The kids loved the dessert table filled with sweet treats, which included an incredibly delicious double-layered red velvet cake with fondant designs from Margie Lou's Sweets and cupcakes in the party theme colors were topped with cupcake toppers from BellaGrey Designs. 

I carried the elements used on the dessert table into the colorful plates and matching napkins, which were embellished with napkin wraps. 

Celena had requested a fun game for the kids to play while at the party. I enlisted the help of my 
"prop guy"AKA my hubby to build a lifesize slingshot out of pvc pipe. While he was working on the slingshot, I got to work painting the faces on the outdoor playground balls to resemble a few of the characters in the game. I found some great eyebrows and bushy mustaches I added to Red bird and Pig.

At the conclusion of the party, we thanked the guests for "Crashing the Party" with a small gable box filled with goodies. 










To make the slingshot you will need: 

4 - 4' sections of  {1 1/2"} PVC pipe
2 - PVC elbow connectors
1 - PVC "T" connectors
2 - PVC caps
 1 - can PVC cement in clear
2 - screw hooks
1 - exercise bands
1 - can brown spray paint
1 - 1 1/2" dowel rod {3' tall} with one end sharpened to a point 

Directions: 

  • Put all your PVC sections together so they fit like the above photo. All connections should be tight. 
  • Adding the PVC cement each time you add another section or connector. The cement will dry quickly, so you will need to make sure the sections are straight and how you want them. 
  • Spray paint the slingshot
  • Screw in the two screw hooks to the top of the caps {these will hold the exercise band}
  • Tie the exercise band to the screw hooks tightly
  • Hammer the dowel rod into the ground to hold slingshot in place
  • Add the fun character balls and let them fly! 



Such a beautifully sweet family!
