Daphnie's 8th Birthday Swim Party!

This post is in no way sponsored by Target, but may contain affiliate links.

One of my favorite events of the year has now come and passed. Daphnie's birthday parties are my favorite to plan. This year Target made it easy by having the cutest party supplies set! We decided we wanted it to be simple but so fun this year so we opted for pizza and cupcakes.

Daphnie wanted just chocolate cupcakes, but I thought that wasn't fun enough for a kids party, so I made two options, one that is all chocolate and one that is a lot more fun. The kids ended up calling it the 'rainbow sparkle' cupcake! I had so much fun decorating these cupcakes. I will link all of the items I used below.

Daphnie and all of her friends had so much fun swimming after the party - and Daphnie went down the big slides at the pool for the first time! She was so excited to get to go down the slides, I think she went down at least 50 times while we were there!

I didn't do all of the crazy decorations or make cake pops or sugar cookies this year {thank goodness because I really just didn't have the time!} but Daphnie didn't mind at all. The most important part to her was having fun with her friends and celebrating her day!

Sooo chocolately and good! Chocolate is Daphnie's favorite by far! To make the 8's and hashy decorations I melted the dark chocolate I linked below and put it into a piping bag and then wrote out the designs on wax paper and then let them cool/dry!

Here are the products I used for these Chocolatey cupcakes:

These cupcakes were by far my favorite to make to date! How fun are these decorations! I made the Unicorn Bark the night before the party by melting the white chocolate I linked below and coloring it with the gel food colors (it has to be gel!) I then spread each color (purple, pink and blue) in lines on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and then took a spatula and swirled them together. You want it to be about a 1/4 inch thick and then just break apart into pieces once it cools!

Here are the supplies I used for the Rainbow Sparkle cupcakes:

Between the simplicity of the party and the fun the kiddos had, I would have to say that this was the best party yet! I cannot wait to plan next year's!

Happy Birthday Daphnie!!
