The Tintin 'wallpaper' idea was found by Katy on Pinterest apparently from a bookstore in Bath in the UK. They were very sad to take it down and I can see why. Its looks wonderful.
I love the typewriter prop.
These whoopie pies with the speech bubbles are so fun. Katy also made giant speech bubbles and stuck them up around the house.
Katy's husband made the chocolate cigars from Cigars of the Pharoah and these sugar cookies are to die for.
Katy took inspiration from Stephanies blog for this tempting stack of favour boxes. And look what was inside each one. Lucky party guests.
Old tomato soup cans were cleaned and re wrapped with Crabe Extra labels. These served as a fun decoration but were also used as a game.

I love the Tintin bunting. A party just has to have bunting to be a real party as far a I'm concerned.
The cake is a work of art isnt it!
Katy put a Tintin spin on some traditional games:
*There is an old party game known as 'The Chocolate Game', which is played by sitting in a circle, tossing a dice and if you throw a double, running to a pile of clothing and getting on as many items as you can then eating as much as you can from a block of chocolate using a knife and fork. You do this until the next person rolls a double.
In the Tintin version, the children had to dress as Tintin and instead of cutting into a block of chocolate, there was a box of Red Rackham's treasure in the centre ( chocolate gold coins).
* Red Rackhams treasure had been 'discovered' during a treasure hunt game where the boys had to use balloons, scrolls and a map to seek it out.
* The post-it note game where you have a character stuck to you forehead and ask everybody questions to try and guess who you are. They had Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, Thompson and Thompson, Professor Calculus to name a few.
* Tossing Snowys 'bone' at the pyramid, made from the cans of Crabe Extra, to knock them down.
I think this party is absolutely fantastic. My Tintin enthusiasts have already put their party orders in.
Well done Katy and thank you so much for sharing!
