My nephew turned 12 this week and LOVES Duck Dynasty and especially Uncle Si. His mom called 4 days before the party asking for some help with the decorations.
This is what I came up with. The sign is a tablecloth I cut up so the tree would line up and look like one long tree. Then cut out some letters on contact paper on the LPF. My mother in law had the two branches and the short log.
The cattails are real and I spent the morning clipping them alongside the creek in town. The mesh camouflage fabric was borrowed from a friend, and the "LOGAN" letters were strung between the two branches with wire.
My sister in law made the cupcakes and I already had the cupcake stands, which I made myself. They are hotplate covers on top of painted terra cotta clay pots.
I made the boxes. The tutorial is found here. My cousin had the antlers from her husband collecting them while hiking and the three mallard duck decoys I bought from a classified ad $5 for all THREE!!
To make the cardboard deer, I cut out a small one on the LPF out of paper and blew up the images using a projector.
The snakes I found at the dollar store and they were already spiral-ly so I wrapped them around the log and the two branches on the dessert table.
And I put this log on the present table.
All in all, it went pretty well, and the total cost for the decorations came to $18.60!! Less than $20. That's my kind of party!
My nephew loved the board so much, he carefully peeled off the "birthday" letters and made it his new headboard. It's the little things that make him the most happy. I was so glad he asked me to help.
