Ain't Nothing But A Penguin Party

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

It’s somewhat weird to be watching hockey in June, but I can’t turn off the tv because my Pittsburgh Penguins are in the Stanley Cup Finals.

If you are a fan like me, there are a number of ways you can add some Penguin flair to your Stanley Cup Party.

Penguin Head: Plum Party has some adorable Penguin hats that are conviently wearing blue (the Pens throwback color). At $1.50 for two, you must stock up on some of these guys. I would recommend bedazzling a Pittsburgh logo on to the hat – or adding a Pens sticker.

Penguin Hat Craft: Kids coming to your party? Oriental Trading has an adorable craft kits. If you are a craftster, you can by the materials to make this vs. the actual kit (that will help with timing too!)

Penguin Food:
- Themed sugar cookies are soooo easy to make. If you don’t feel like baking them from scratch, you can always

- With some creative pan usage, you can whip up this cute penguin cake.

- I LOVE these Penguin olives from Sagespot on Flickr. This app can be put together easily with two olives, a tooth pic and a piece of cheddar cheese as a nose and a strip of cream cheese for the belly. You could also use carrots in place of the cheddar cheese.

- For an easy penguin treat, create these cookies arranged from Oreos. No baking required!

Penguin Pinata:
While you never want to beat up on your mascot, there is a sweet Penguin Pinata you can fill with candy.

Lord Stanley: Yes, you too can have a Stanley Cup at your party with this inflatable version courtsey of the NHL. Not everyone can "meet the cup" like a certain blogger (when she was wearing a Hooters t-shirt).

I was daydreaming this theme last week and one of my favorite blogs, Hostess with the Mostess, actually posted a Penguin party on Friday. Click here for some adorable ideas she put together for a shower that can be applied to Pen’s party such as the olive app and cookies.

Oh and of course…LET’S GO PENS!
