Harley Davidson Birthday Party

image

Orange and black……Harley Davidson’s signature colors…. I got lucky because it was easy to find accessories and such just coming out of Halloween for this November outside 40th birthday party.  I knew right off that I wanted to make cupcakes and to build a stand out of motorcycle tires.

Since everywhere I checked online was out of the Harley cupcake picks, I decided to make them myself.  I printed the Harley logo for the black cupcakes and the eagle for the orange cupcakes….that was a lot of fussy cutting going on because of course, they had to be doubled sided.

The food was the usual….meatballs, ham biscuits, tomato and mozzarella bites, spicy chicken bites, bacon wrapped wieners, fruit and vegetables, and three different dips…a spinach artichoke one, a bacon cheeseburger one and a 7 layer bean dip that was in individual containers.

I made a lighted birthday sign, to use as decoration but also something the birthday girl could keep to remember her party, with the Harley logo as the basic design…

Of course, i made a backdrop with props and decided to just use black felt and top with giant orange and black paper flowers…

And then…my favorite, the Smores Bar featuring six different flavors to choose from.  The smores menu itself was written on old windows and the sternos were fit into a long drilled out log.  The bar was finished off with huge tissue paper balls and a chalk paper banner.
