Being a mom of two boys, I have to admit that I get extremely excited when we get great submissions about boy parties. A couple of weeks ago, we showed you this post from the ladies over at Spaceships and Laserbeams. This week, we are featuring this fabulous boy party from Marissa at The Princess and the Pirate.  Marissa styled this terrific table for her son’s 3rd birthday party.  The yellow and black color palette brought a chic sensibility to a young boy’s party that could also translate well to an adult party.  The desserts that Marissa “built” included chocolate hard hats, chocolate mud cupcakes and yellow buttercream cake.  The adorable truck cookies were from the very creative Hello Naomi.  Melissa used chalkboard labels for dessert and candy tags {you can find so many great uses for them, like we did here}.  Looks like you built a fantastic party, Marissa!

      How did you make the hard hats? Did you have a mold? They are amazing!!!

      • http://www.theprincessandthepirate.com.au Marissa

        Hi Kim

        They are a chocolate mould that I purchased. They were just a solid white chocolate that I coloured yellow, obviously you could use the coloured candy melts as well especially if you wanted to make them into cake pops, I have really high humidity here so the solid chocolate worked a lot better. But they were super cute and the kids loved them!

          Hi can you tell me where you found the mould for the hard hats? The party looked great…(found this via pinterest)

          Hi,

          Can you tell me where you bought the hat mold. I have purchased two online already and they are too big.

          Thank you,

          Debbie
