Camo Theme Party

I picked a camo theme for the boys' family birthday party, mostly because I wanted to try my hand at making camo cupcakes that I had seen multiple times on Pinterest. They seemed easy enough to make and I just kept the rest of the party decor very simple.

For the cupcakes I just picked up a box of white cake mix, and mixed it up following the directions on the box. Then I divided it equally into 3 separate bowls; one stayed white, one I made bright green, and the other was more of a dark army green. (I used the food coloring gel in these, not the liquid food coloring.) Then I just carefully put a spoonful of each color into each cupcake liner and then gently ran a toothpick through each one to swirl the colors. Then I frosted half of them with vanilla frosting and half of them with chocolate. I think they turned out pretty awesome!

Everything else was pretty simple. A dish full of green and brown M&M's, a dish of pretzel sticks, tea and lemon lime kool-aid to drink. The table was simply covered in green and black tablecloths, we used green and black plates and I did pick up some camo printed napkins from the party supply store.
