Although I do not work with licensed characters here at adelphi mou there are two ‘clients’ I can never say no to… my nephews! This time round the eldest of the two is turning 7 and on Sunday we gathered round to celebrate this milestone. My sister Josefa who you may know from always Josefa gave me official word last year that the little man wanted a Despicable Me theme and with that he already knew that cake he wanted… Gru & Lucys wedding cake!
So with a wedding cake first on the list and my own personal obsession with the minions the ideas started to flow and instead of sticking to one theme I decided to have individual items from both the movies to capture its fun & quirkiness. This is my first ever styled table set up and I would love to hear what you think if it!
The main table set up, with the custom art I created. A great feature is seeing Grus logo being transformed to the letter A for the birthday boy!

Salsa & Salsa Chocolate bars featuring Pollito the adorable angry chicken from despicable me 2. Thanks a Minion – Personalised party favour bags.
