So some background...my youngest sister was graduating from Middle School which so happens to be on the weekend of my brother's birthday! My other sister, Brother's Girlfriend, and I decided to throw them a surprise party doing a Minion's Theme from the movie Despicable Me =D Boy...was it so hard to keep it a secret with so much prep work. I was hosting at my place and was very fortunate to have come across Minion collectibles which is shown below for the cake topper. I customized the birthday hat and grad cap and the tassel is made of twine =)
I also turned Twinkies into lil minions with googly eyes and added lips for animated expression on the wrapper. I printed out images from the web of minions and taped it against a bamboo stick to be the center of the Twinkies in the pail. These served as table decor and favors at the party. The pails are from target and I customized the sign to say "Hope you had a Despicably good time!"
