DIY Wiggles Themed Birthday Cake and Balloon Wall

This post is about how I put together a small Wiggles themed party, and features quick photo editing tutorial.

Come on down to Wiggle Town, do the propeller, I can stand like a statue, wake up Lachy, it’s Emma’s yellow bow. These random lyrics have been stuck in my head for the past year as my kid regularly watches, sings, and dances along to the Wiggles.

The Wiggles are an Australian based children’s rock band that originated in 1991 with a few line-up changes over the years, and they are still going strong as one of the top children entertainment groups in the world.  I had heard of them in my pre-baby days, but I think the first time I heard one of their songs was on an episode of Arrested Development when Charlize “Mr F” Theron sang “Hot Potato” in a car ride with George Michael. Classic.

Since my little peanut has been a fan for nearly half her life, I decided to go “all out” with a Wiggles themed 2nd birthday party. Some factors went into planning this though. A) we don’t have space for a home party, and she doesn’t have a lot of friends her age yet anyway, and B) most official Wiggles decor and toys must be shipped from Australia, and unfortunately that is not in my budget. So I opted to make a fun pull apart cake adorned in Wiggles colors, and a colorful balloon backdrop to take pictures of her opening a gift and eating cake. For a Wiggles inspired gift, I made her a “Dressing Up in Style” dress-up trunk (click here to see how I did that.)

Here’s what I did along with some tips that can help springboard your own Wiggles themed party! Continue reading “DIY Wiggles Themed Birthday Cake and Balloon Wall”
