Pig Ears

Alex 4th birthday is coming up and we have decided to do an Olivia Themed Party.  I never thought I would be big on themed parties but I am loving having two little girls that I can plan parties for.  It is so much fun putting ideas together and watching the party come to life.

It might be a little mean of me that my daughter wanted a princess themed party but I just wasn't having it.  She really isn't into princesses and I think she just wanted a princess party because both of her good friends had one.  So I threw out ideas : Super Hero Party, Ice Cream Party, Sweet Shoppe Party and she said no to all of them.  I finally came up with Olivia and she was game.

You have seen some of my ideas that I have put together already for her party that I got from other blogs and now I have another idea but not sure if it is going to work.  You see Olivia is A PIG and I want to make pig ears for the kids that are coming.

So I follow Karas Party Ideas ( freaking love the parties she posts ) and I saw this super cute party hat for a girl.

It is cute isn't it.  You should check out the full Ice Cream Party as it sure was stunning.  But anywhoooooo back to my idea . . 

I am wondering if there is anyway I can make this look like pigs ears.

wondering if there is room for 2 cones on the headband.
wondering if I add a section of pink to the cone to make it look like the inner part of the ear
Wondering if I add red ribbon and tie it into a bow ( olivia always wears bows )

So wondering.. do you think I can turn this cute ice cream hat into pigs ears?! 
Are there different size cones that are shaped like this?

Yes girl! Go for it! I think it will be super cute. Even if you just leave them as-is & tie some red bows on them. Olivia has those really big ears so I think this works perfectly.

They do make mini cones but I think the regular size ones would be great since Olivia has huge ears! What an awesome idea, I can't wait to see!!

I love these ideas. I can't wait to see all her party decor in full swing. I think it will be such a cute theme to go with.
