Here is what Katie had to say about planning the party-
I enlisted the skills of my friends and strangers on Etsy to help carry out my vision. I started with the milk bottles what goes better with Cheerios than milk? Instead of ordering the vintage glass bottles online, I waited for a sale on Starbucks Frappuccinos at my local grocery store and then bought a dozen, took off the labels, and voila, vintage looking milk bottles. The #1 Cheerios Mosaic was created out of a party store pinata, after the tissue is ripped off and the cardboard frame is painted, it is a perfect canvas for a mosaic creation. The Cheerios box bunting banner was obvious. I asked all of my friends to keep their empty boxes and then I started cutting and cutting and cutting. The Cheerios garland, also a no-brainer… I had seen bird feeder ideas out of Cheerios and I thought a garland would be adorable. I love the way it turned out with the red and yellow ribbon all hung together. The wooden spoons with white chocolate and cheerios were a great idea from Kara herself!
The inspiration for the O-N-E letters was taken from Pinterest, as was the favor idea. I put my own twist on the party favors and the kids were so excited to receive them. I knew exactly what I wanted for cake, mini-cupcakes with yellow icing and a single Cheerio on top. I went to the local moms group and found another mom who bakes to make the cupcakes for me. The Cheerios box was also a Pinterest find, I created my own using yellow tag board and some paint.
I adore the color yellow, so I did all yellow flowers and yellow polka-dot balloons. In one flower arrangement, I put one vase inside the other and filled the exterior with cheerios. In another arrangement, I created it out of the disposable single-serving Cheerios bowls. The food was of course, Cheerios, and included some Cheerios treats from the General Mills website.
My friend Sarah from Sarah Bohl Designs helped me style the party.
