It's that time of year when we've had one kiddo birthday party, gone through Christmas and now we're at the point where we need to plan Birdie's birthday party on 1/19 (for those keeping track, that's two birthdays and one Christmas within one month). Katie aka Birdie wants a princess party, which is very fitting for her. First task was to convince her to have the party at Rolly Pollies and not Chuck E. Cheese's. Mission accomplished! Second task, get the invites done! I used Heritage Makers to do the invitations. It's easy and I can direct ship those that I need to.
While I think some of the girls will love tiaras and wands, there will be boys (and gasp! some girls might not like a tiara. So, I want the favors to be a little more balanced, so that boys and girls will like them. And here's one idea, a coloring page that I could roll up like a scroll. I think that would be cool.
But I need something to out these favors in, so I found these cool bags that I think would be kind of easy and cool to do. Plus, I have some extra plain bags left over from prior parties that I could totally repurpose. Awesome!!
And then of course, there is the cake. Pinterest has saved me again (unless it turns out to be a Pinterest fail then Pinterest is the devil setting up unrealistic expectations)! Between adults and kids, I'm guessing I'll need to serve about 25 people. I'm going to need a large round cake pan because I don't want to do a layered cake though it would look beautiful. Anywho, I'm totally in love with this cake and I'm pretty sure that I can do something close.
Then of course, every birthday princess should have a birthday hat, which I found on Pinterest, but available for sale via etsy.
So I think that about does it for the party planning. Now let's see how awesome the execution of said plan is!
