This past Saturday 2/19 my Munchkin turned 11 years old! I’m still trying to wrap my head around that. We started planning her party back in December. She decided she wanted a slumber party with a celebrity/super star theme. So I told her to go research and bring me her ideas. WOW! She came back with a 6 page written plan for her party that included: game ideas, food ideas , diagrams, invitation & goody bag illustrations, and websites for decorations…she had it all planned out!
She chose Silver,Black, and Gold for the colors after finding these decorations at Partycity.com
She’d done a Google search to get ideas on how to set up for the party and found these "Popcorn" cupcakes. Too cute, it’s not really Popcorn on top it’s mini marshmallows that you cut cross-wise and spray with yellow food coloring or Wilton Color Mist in Yellow.
This cupcake wrapper was made with my new favorite Cricut Accessory – Make The Cut software. I LOVE MTC! I will probably never buy another cartridge again! I used Stickles to outline & fill in the stars and 11.
Guess what I used to make this super cute banner?
Most of the decorations I got either on sale, with coupons or at the $1 store!
For the goody bags,I bought plain black paper sacks from Michael’s. I traced and cut out the star shape then glued cut pieces of page protectors inside the bag. I LOVE to embellish so I used a paper trimmer to make the loops on the top of the bag. Munchkin cut out little stars to glue on the outsides and the clapboard tags were made with……….YUP MTC! So was the clapboard on the balloon center piece and the front door.
The party was hit, the girls had a fun, there was pillow fighting, boy talk, movie watching, whip cream smearing, a hi fashion show and they designed their own T-shirts. They were 10 girls in all and they were all very well behaved.
The Pookie Doo has started planning her 7th birthday with a Pinkalicious theme! Her Bday is in September so this is going to be FUN! My orders were, “Mommy, EVERYTHING has to just be PINK!”
*Sigh* I love planning parties!
