Additional Tips

Framed Vintage Prints: We recommend googling “Vintage Paul Bunyan” to pull up images that you can print out and frame for party decor.


Prepare perfect party decor + party food.

Tree Stump Cake


  • 2 boxes of cake mix
  • Vanilla buttercream frosting
  • Chocolate buttercream frosting
  • Wilton brown food coloring
  • Graham crackers
  • Ax cake topper


  1. Bake 3 cake layers using the boxed cake mixtures.
  2. After the cake layers have cooled, add the frosting. Between each layer, add a small amount of vanilla frosting, carefully stacking each layer as you go.
  3. Apply a thin layer of chocolate frosting all around the outside of the cake to form a crumb coat.
  4. Add 1-2 drops of brown food coloring to the vanilla frosting so that it is a tan color.
  5. Apply the tan frosting to the top of the cake. Use a toothpick to make swirls all around to look like tree rings.
  6. Apply a thick layer of the chocolate frosting with a frosting spatula in an upward motion to the side of the cake. Don’t worry if it’s not precise — if it looks a little messy, it looks more like a real tree stump!
  7. Crumble the graham crackers and sprinkle them around the edges of the cake to look like wood shavings.
  8. Add a foam ax cake topper to the top of the cake.
  9. Enjoy!

S’mores Favors


  • Graham crackers
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Chocolate
  • Cellphone bags
  • Ribbon or bakers twine
  • Favor tags


  1. Assemble two graham crackers, mini marshmallows and a piece of chocolate and place in a small cellophane bag.
  2. Using ribbon or bakers twine, tie the favor tag to the bag.


Pull it all together in just a few easy steps.

Styling tips

AK Party Studio shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

I always love to use items that I have around my home (i.e. household tools and my husband’s flannel shirt) as party décor. Not only does it add a personal feel to your party, but it saves you time and money! With this theme, you can also easily use outdoor elements (i.e. wood) for decoration.

Tip 2

To make prep a little easier and keep overall party costs down, I opted for ordering in pizza, a homemade cake & cupcakes, and small store-bought snacks (Teddy Graham cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, veggie sticks & dip, popcorn / pretzels, and a basket of apples). For the DIY s’more favors, all you need are graham crackers, mini marshmallows, and chocolate!
