Tie Party Games and Take Homes

I realized that I had never posted the second half of our Little Guy in a Tie Party. It's been a while so please forgive any less than optimal pictures. I've learned a lot since then. I just thought the ideas were too fun not to share. We had a green, black and white theme to go along with all things tie.


We decorated the take home table with a Tiepography ABC print and a picture of our boys in ties. Each guest got to take home some disguise glasses and a little guy in a tie Oreo pop. They also got to fill a little tuxedo box with green, white and black candy from the candy buffet.



Since it was a one year old party with lots of family and friends we just had a few games, but we made them span all ages. We started with pin the tie on the birthday boy. Your local print shop can print a photo poster size in black and white using a blueprint printer for about $4.


We also had guests wear ties and had an ugly tie contest. Boy we had some doozies.


Then, all the guys lined up for a Tie tying contest. It was great to watch and cheer them on.


We closed out the party with Camouflage (green, brown, and white cake) cupcakes with Candy Tie Cupcake Toppers. I got a green candy writer melted it down and went to town drawing ties. Once they dry you just carefully place them on top of the frosted cupcakes. We served them with mint chip and vanilla ice cream.


Our birthday boy had no hesitation with his cupcake. Gotta love a good cake smash!


Want to see more of the party? We had a fun DIY photo booth, Tie Banner, and Green, Black and White themed luncheon (which contained a surprising amount of options). See the part 1 post of the Tie Party here.

Speaking of parties, we have a big one coming up on Wednesday! It is our blogiversary and we're celebrating with an over $500 giveaway! Don't miss it!
