My sweet grandmother turned 100 over the weekend! So we all headed to see her and celebrate with 100 cupcakes. My mom made mini cupcakes and served them up on a cute cake stand! My grandmother had her 4 children & their spouses, 7 grandchildren and their spouses, & 6 of her great grandchildren all there to celebrate this special day!
My job was to make the cupcake toppers…all 200 of them to be exact! I didn’t know what I was going to create until an hour before we left to drive to my Aunt & Uncle’s house. I had purchased some paper straws from a really cute etsy shop…and the straws came with paper flags to print and attach. (They are so much fun! You will see them again when I post about the Circus Carnival party I put on for my former business partner’s twin goddaughters…but I digress!)
Anyways, I loved the idea of a flag topper so I created one for my sweet grandmother and put my relatives to work the night before cutting and wrapping the toothpicks. A tip: I printed them on full sheet sticker sheets so all we had to do was cut, peel, & stick!
