    so this amazing part with rides and ponys and clowns. every detail thought out and perfect….

    so whats up with the box sheet cake left in the pyrex pan on display?!?! did no one else not notice that??

    thats just odd to me….

  10. Oriana Hetsler says:

    Dear anonymous. The cake left out in the Pyrex on top of the elephant arthurt court holder had to be on a Pyrex due to the fact that it was a tres leches cake which is a moist cake with lots of juices and in a cake stand it would not hold. Hope that's explains my tacky display in your eyes. The only reason why I even had this cake and a backup which was delicious not to mention gone by the time the party was done. LOL my mother made it which made it very special for me as well as the kids. Yes I coil have paid for a $200 cake no problem like in the past but this was sentimental for us. How would you have displayed it different so I can take notes for next time? And just a quick question… Why anonymous????

    sweetie they are just haters! you did a FABULOUS job on your party. even an ADULT would kill to have this much creatvity put into one of there parties. If only they knew what the taste of a tres leches cakes was, they would not be complaining, BEATS ANY CAKE!!!! It does not look tacky either, its in a clear case, it would look tacky if they colors didn´t fit right or it was in lets say, a card board box….yeah now THAT would be RANDOM!! KUDOS to your hard work and dedication!!! :)

    This party is amazing! Thanks so much for posting it, Kara. It's given me great ideas! If you haven't tried tres leche cake then you're missing out. A perfect party cake. I am sorry Orianna about the comments…that is not how us readers of Kara's Party Ideas are. congratulations on being featured! Pay no attention to the money comment, they are only jealous.

    I think that the party is wonderful, but I think tacky is to mention that you can pay $200 for a cake and the brand of your pyrex holder LOL!

    Love the party!! Where did you get the big blue balloons with polka dots??

  16. Oriana Hetsler says:

    To anonymous on July 30th: listen if you want to be a party pooper be it but keep it to yourself. If your mother didn't teach you manners while growing up, now it's a good start. No one likes to read negativity on blogs.

    To the last anonymous: I got the blue polkadot balloons at a local party store. BUT… These were not the ones that I actually had in mind. I wanted the really nice and round ones that Martha Stewart is so famous for showing in the past. The girl said those were it but they aren't. :-( if you google big round balloons on the Internet, I saw a warehouse place that sold 6 for around $10. Otherwise all the other little party boutiques will charge you about 4-5 bucks each plus get them filled. I ran out of time for mine that's why I didn't but them online. Hope this helps.
