Fun Duck Birthday Theme Decorations

10:01:00 PM

If you’re going for a duck birthday party theme, then you can’t just stop at duck cupcakes. You have to find some duck decorations to go with them. Or at least select some yellow decorations. Or maybe garb your darling birthday girls in duck clothing. Or maybe you should do all of that. Like I did.

Here’s how I created a duck birthday feel to go with my cute duck cupcakes:

Vinyl Duck Silhouette Buckets

This has to be the simplest décor of all. I took some yellow buckets, found on clearance at Target, and some black adhesive vinyl. I found a silhouette of a duck online, and I used the trace function in the Silhouette Design Studio to trace the silhouette. I cut some out, and voila! Duck utensil holders for the party.

Yellow pinwheels

I used a Silhouette pinwheel design by Stacy Molter and some scrapbooking paper to make the pinwheels. The post of the pinwheel is a heavy weight paper straw from the etsy shop Le Box. It’s all held together by a paper clip!

Lucky Duck Tee Shirts

I created these with the same duck silhouette I used on the vinyl decals for the buckets and adding the word lucky. I printed them out on a laser printer and then trimmed around them. I used Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium to transfer the image onto the shirts.

Themed Foods

Who says just the cupcakes should be themed? Just like I did for Easter, I used a cookie cutter to make duck shaped foccaccia, which went great with the baked penne that I had for the meal.

The final touch…lots of rubber ducks. We adore our bath toys in my house.

And we had loads of fun...really!
