Cake is one of the most important thing when you are having a party or during a holyday. This is why you need to pick the right cake to light up the party. There are a lot of things you should take into consideration from selecting the cake to receiving it at your front door or picking it up from the store. Also, take into consideration the design, the ingredients, and of course, your budget.

In this article we are going to review Kroger in order to find out more about their products and the designs. If you want to learn more about how to order a cake from Kroger and about their prices, you can visit them in person or search for the fees online. Kroger cakes prices are going to help you decide if this store is the best one to order the cake your want.

A Cake for Every Occasion

Kroger offer cakes for every occasion. At this bakery you can find cakes for birthdays, a baby shower, graduation, and even a wedding. For every occasion they have different licensed cakes. They have a vast selection of models and designs to choose from.

Birthday cakes
When it comes to birthday cakes, this is the area where Kroger excels. They have a lot of models for kids and for adults. Also, they have licensed designs for boys and girls. Some of their designs include Star Wars, Paw Patrol, Frozen, and Spiderman. All of these are very interesting and your kid is going to love the bright colors and his or her favorite character on the cake.

They also have simple designs which are great for a birthday cake. You can select a simple white or chocolate cake with a few sugary flowers as decoration. These are suited for anybody and they can even be a great birthday gift. One of the best thing about these cakes is the price. They price range between $24 and $47.

Baby Shower cakes
As we mentioned, Kroger has different cakes for every occasion. What better occasion to have a cake then a baby shower. They have licensed special designs for this event. Some of their most known designs include Baby Special Delivery Stork and Baby Block. The price of these are almost the same as the ones for birthday cakes.

Wedding cakes
If you want to have the perfect wedding but you are on a tight budget, you should pick out a cake from Kroger. They have 2 options: a 2-tier or a 3-tier cake. The designs are going to amaze you. These cakes look exactly like the ones you find at a renowned bakery and they also taste amazing. Also, this way you save some bucks on your wedding cake.

Build-a-Cake Service

One of the best things about Kroger cakes is that you can actually build your own cake just the way you like it. It is a great thing for people who want something special or simply when they don’t find the exact design they were searching for. Also, the best thing is that you can select everything from the cake type to the frosting and the decorations.

This option is great for those who want to celebrate a different event than a wedding or a birthday. With build-a-cake option, they are allowed to make the cake just the way they want. You can customize the cake by selecting the type of cake (sheet or round) and then choosing the icing, flavors, and the decorations. Get creative when purchasing a personalized cake.

Getting the Cake

After you selected and ordered the cake the only thing you can do is wait until the cake is ready. One thing you should consider is to pick up the cake a day before the part or at least a few hours before to make sure that the cake is ok. Kroger cake also offers a delivery option but not all Kroger stores have this option.

Unfortunately, cakes need to be picked up from most Kroger stores. It is important to order the cake about 72 hours before the party to make sure that the bakers have time to make it. Also, if the party is during a holiday you will need to plan ahead.

All in all, Kroger cakes have a great quality-price report. Since the price of the cakes are a lot smaller than the ones you will find at a renowned bakery, you should also expect the cakes to have a good design not an amazing one. Kroger makes it simple for you to order the perfect cake from their licensed designs or to build your own model. Just choose the one you like and enjoy it.

Mario Kart Themed Birthday Party

Mario Kart Themed Birthday Party

mario kart There was a time when choosing a theme was easy, when parents can choose the party theme for their little ones.  Um…that’s good until they’re about 3!  By the time they reach their 4th. birthday most kids have definite ideas of what they want their party to be.  This specially holds true for 9 and 10 year old boys!  But even though they sort of know what they want even kids this age need a bit of a hand in choosing a theme.  So here’s one we planned recently for cousins that wanted to celebrate their birthdays together and who both love their Nintendo games.  They had a Mario Kart party!

Mario Kart is a great party theme!  It’s fun, colorful, and has many characters you can use on party decor!  Of course there are Mario and Luigi, the game’s heroes.  That’s why it’s also a great theme for twin birthdays and other joint parties.  Here are a few ideas to inspire you for  your Mario Kart themed party!  And remember if you need party invitations and decor you can DIY or place an order with Savvy Nana Crafts.  We’ll work with you to customize your party!

Invitations

Set the stage with themed invitations.  Be sure you have the date, time, and place of your party on the invitation and don’t forget the RSVP.  You’ll want to know how many people are planning on attending.  It makes planning and budgeting so much easier![spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

mario kartActivities

If you’re super creative and motivated like Melissa Peterson of MudPie Parties build these Mario Kart vehicles and have the kids race in them!

If not then maybe you can make simple cars using cardboard boxes and spray painting them in bright colors.  The kids can use them to race or run an obstacle course!

Other fun ideas that fit this theme would be pin the mustache on Mario, or Luigi.  You can print a large picture of the guys and cut out construction paper mustaches.  [spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

mario kartFood

Food is a very important part of the party, specially the birthday cake!  For kids keep foods simple.  Stick with easy to make and eat finger foods like these cute star shaped PB&J sandwiches.  You can also serve fresh veggies and fruits, they make a colorful and healthy option!

mario kartCupcakes are a  great alternative to a big birthday cake.  They’re easy to transport and easy to serve.  Cupcake toppers make them super special![spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

mario kartDecorations

Decor adds that extra special something to any party.  We like to have centerpieces, banners, signs, and more.

For these centerpieces we personalized them with each child’s picture, age, and name.  The character stick ties it all together.  I like to use metal pails filled with shredded paper.  They very easy to put together and very inexpensive to buy.

mario kartFor this party I printed out stickers of the venus fly trap and stuck them on each pail.  Really cute!

Photo Booth

Photo booths are always fun.  You don’t need anything fancy, a blank wall will serve as a back drop, if you want cut out pictures of Mario Kart characters and tape them to the wall.

Construction Themed Boy’s Birthday Party

Construction Themed Boy’s Birthday Party

constructionI just love a themed birthday party!  Don’t you?  Having 5 grandchildren and a client base of party loving people keeps me pretty busy planning and designing birthday parties.  One of my favorite boys’ party themes is a Construction Party!

I recently designed party stationary and decor for Misty one of my most enthusiastic clients.  We designed construction theme items for her son Myalz’s second birthday party.  I just love the construction themes, there are so many possibilities.  From Construction signs, vehicles, equipment, and even gear, there are so many things you can incorporate in a construction themed party.

constructionIf you’re fortunate enough to live by Diggerland USA, a construction themed amusement park in West Berlin, New Jersey you can have the ultimate construction party and be crowned parent of the year!  My cousin and her hubby hosted their twins’ birthday party there last year.  Everyone had a blast!

Seriously, what’s not to like?  Huge construction vehicles to ride, dirt to dig in, and pizza; it’s every male’s dream come true; and I mean males ages 2-100!

But for those of us who don’t have Diggerland in our neighborhood we’ll just have to settle for a DIY Construction themed party.  Here are some ideas to inspire you!

5 Party Themes Your Pre-Schoolers Will Love

5 Party Themes Your Pre-Schoolers Will Love

Pre-schoolersJudging by our pre-schoolers, aka my grandchildren, 4 year old Jett, and 3 year old twins Harper and Sadi, pre-schoolers love parties.  Any party!

Our pre-schoolers love birthday parties (specially their own), Halloween parties, Christmas parties, and what ever other party they are invited to.  Of course I’m pretty sure they got their love of parties from us.  We love throwing parties!

First Birthday Parties are always a big deal.  It’s probably one of the few, if not the only one,  kids’ party you have control over the theme.  I mean really one year olds will not argue about that!  But after the first birthday party many pre-schoolers have definite ideas about what they want their party theme to be.  If you’re lucky you’ll get away with choosing a party theme one more time.  But once they turn 3 pre-schoolers will definitely tell you what they want.  At least that’s how it was with my older grandsons, by the time they were pre-schoolers they most definitely choose their own part themes.

Having said that, even though pre-schoolers can have very determined ideas they still might need guidance or suggestions.  Sometime they have so many characters that they love it’s hard to choose just one.  So I’ve decided to share 5 tried and true party themes your pre-schoolers will love!

Mickey Mouse Clubhousepre-schoolers

What’s not to love?  This party theme based on a beloved Disney channel show has all the characters pre-schoolers and everyone loves.

You can really go to town with all the vivid colors, funny phrases, and fun characters.  You won’t have to choose just one, unless you really prefer just one!

This theme also has different variations because there are so many episodes!  There’s the Mickey Farmhouse,  Dino Mickey, Fairytale Mickey, and so many others!

pre-schoolersSesame Street

Just like the Mickey theme the Sesame Street is colorful and has many different characters.

Focus on one or all either way it’ll be fun!

Check out our Sesame Street Cookie Buffet party!  Done in honor of you guessed it,

Cookie Monster![spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

 

Team Umi Zumi

Another great theme for pre-schoolers is Team Umi Zumi.  Again very colorful with lots of different characters.  And they have cool vehicles!

[spacer height=”-20px”]

 

 

 

 

 

 

pre-schoolerspre-schoolersThomas the Train

All pre-schoolers love trains and Thomas and friends are a favorite.  Lots of colorful characters and railroad signs for decorating.

Peppa Pig

Here’s another pre-schooler favorite, Peppa Pig.  My grandsons and granddaughter all loved her!
