Our youngest son, Ford, turned 4 . . . and we celebrated with family & friends, and a Cut the Rope ~ Om Nom inspired celebration!
So when Ford told me that he wanted an Om Nom birthday, I couldn't have been happier. Besides the fact that Om Nom is down-right adorable, Ford might be one of Cut the Rope/Om Nom's biggest fans! What a great combination . . . 2 cute characters (Ford and Om Nom) and FUN!
If you haven't played the game, then here's a litte fyi . . .
The objective of Cut the Rope is to feed CANDY to a little green monster
named Om Nom while collecting stars.
On level 1-1, before you play, there is a ring from the doorbell
and you open the door. Om Nom is in a box and you can see
his eyes inside a hole. Above the hole there is a sign that says:
FEED WITH CANDY!!
You must feed him with candy by cutting ropes and using air cushions,
magic hats, anti-gravity buttons, and other items.
Om Nom loves candy, so if the candy drops off-screen or gets destroyed,
he will groan in disappointment and make a sad face if you lose.
Om Nom is a very sweet little creature, unless spiders steal his candy.
The levels are quite creative, and a lot of fun to play!
Ok . . . so with that background information . . . here's a peak into Ford's Om Nom/Cut the Rope inspired party!
I had so much fun creating the centerpieces and decorations!
~ I like to sketch my ideas before making them.
It helps organize my thoughts and ideas! ~
I used scrapbook paper to create the centerpieces, and wrapping paper to cover boxes (which symbolize Cut the Rope's LEVELS).
~ Meet Om Nom! ~
~ 1/18" wood sticks held the stars upright ~
Om Nom's goal . . . EAT CANDY!
I suspended the CANDY using 12 gauge decorative wire!
Burlap ribbon lined the tables, as well as CANDIES that I made using paper decorations and yellow scrapbook paper.
"Packages" looking very similar to the ones found on Cut the Rope were also seen on table tops. I wonder why they have FRAGILE stickers on them? Could they be a special delivery for Ford with his very own Om Nom?!?
I made Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie STARS for party favors . . . and decorations!
Naughty spiders found their way to the party, and they tried to intercept Ford, Om Nom, and the kids from getting CANDY!
~ I made these cute spiders from my Halloween decorations
and what I call "comic eyes" that I made from construction paper ~
And finally, the decorations wouldn't be complete
without CANDY on the tables!
I found these saltwater taffies at Powell's Candy Shoppe . . . and chose red, yellow, and green to go with the colors and theme of the party.
Ford's party was bright and colorful . . .
a real life version of Cut the Rope!
My favorite part of the day was seeing the excitement
on Ford's face, as he watched some of his
favorite parts of Cut the Rope & Om Nom come to life!
Our activities . . .
Ford and his friends played for hours on a
HUGE inflatable jumper and slide combo.
And the adults enjoyed Ladder Golf on the lawn!
Happy Birthday, Ford!
Stay tuned for Part 2 of Ford's party!
