Burger Party!



The end of Summer....Thought a Mini Burger party would be fun...




Turning on the fountain...


Got Sunflowers from the unfinished part of the yard....They grow wild in Utah and plenty of them!



Grabbed a white sheet....Toile vase for the flowers....Normal dishes....Sometimes we think that if we don't have pretty dishes, we can't have a party....I think that when you are a Mom and finances are tight. Even paper plates will do. The kids will like it because...They just want to party with you....


Mini Burgers....


Mini Burgers cupcakes....


I bought those at Target....But they are very easy to make....Just make cupcakes....Take out the paper...Cut them in two and use 4 colors of icing....

For the meat burgers....I used this little kit....


Used this to cut buns the right size...


Onions in the burger meat...shaped them with the tool and place them with the grill tool in the barbecue...





The kids loved it ! 
Happy week and barbecue away! before it is too cold!

What a cute idea and I'm sure your little darlings loved it. They are so cute, too! Burger cupcakes?
Your table looks and sounds fun. Your tiny little burgers look good too. I love hamburgers, especially when they're grilled outside.

I love the idea of cutting out the buns. I made mini chicken sandwiches once using nuggets as the patties and cherry tomatoes, I had to make my own rolls though, that would be so much easier.

Love the mini burgers - I don't know why but I always order them at restaurants. The cakes are adorable. I haven't seen those at Target but would love to get them. Maybe I should try making them myself. I have seen cookies like this.

This is a great party idea! In a pinch, you can cut hot dog buns in half 2 create 2 mini buns. A quick way to get sliders!

Cool idea! Love the cupcakes.

Katie's Nesting Spot said...

Very fun idea for a party! I can believe your kids loved those cupcakes, they look super fun! Your bit about not having fancy plates cracked me up. When I first saw the picture, before I read about it, I thought wow what nice plates! Ours are plain white so yours with the green leaves would be "fancy" to my daughter. Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree! I hope you'll come back next week and link up again!
