My son is so in love with the Peanuts Movie and LOVES Snoopy, so as his second birthday approached I knew I wanted to have a Peanuts birthday party. Hold on tight, I usually separate these posts since they are so photo heavy, but I’m combining all of the Peanuts birthday party ideas I used into one giant post today!
For my daughters 5th birthday she was so excited to have a My Little Pony Birthday party! I searched the internet for great My Little Pony party ideas and found so many that it made putting this party together super easy. Now, you know I love to get my DIY on when it comes to the decorations, but I’ve been really sick with my pregnancy so this party was all store-bought – and honestly, it turned out so great. My daughter kept saying, “ADORABLE!” as I was setting up the decorations the night before, so I knew I was on the right track!
I think it’s safe to say that Inside Out was a favorite movie for people of all ages last year. It’s lighthearted and kid centered enough to keep my daughter enthralled, but had layers of deeper meaning that for the big kids/adults. It’s the perfect movie to turn into a birthday party if you ask me!
One of our favorite movies last year was HOME by Dreamworks. OH, Tip (Gratuity), Lucy, Kyle, Captain Smeck, Pig the cat – the whole lot are hilarious! I love that the movies are geared for kids, but have enough wit and humor that adults enjoy them too. As I mentioned in my Cinderella post, my daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but this is one of the ideas we’re brainstorming for her party and I thought I’d share the ideas I have in case you’re looking to host one yourself. So, again, while I don’t have finished party photos – hopefully they’ll give you a good jumping off point!
As soon as I found out I was expecting a boy, I knew that his 1st birthday party would be a Baseball birthday party. My husband played baseball growing up (and even into college) and going to MLB games is one of our favorite vacation activities. If you’re planning one, hopefully these baseball birthday party ideas will come in handy! Be sure to check out the Baseball cake tutorial I posted as well!
I’ve had this idea for marshmallow beach balls in my head all summer and I’ve been meaning to post it, but I swear this week everyone is posting back to school updates on facebook and I feel like summer just ran away from me! But, I figure all of my fans in Australia (insert crickets chirping) who are just headed into the summer will love that I’m posting this now!
These would be so cute to do for a swimming pool party or slip n’ slide party. The absolute best thing about them is that the kool-aid flavors the chocolate! Sure, you could just purchase different color candy melts, but the flavor the kool-aid gives is awesome and makes them taste as good as they look!
From start (the invitations) to finish (the favors I sent home with the guests), I wanted to make sure every aspect carried the Disney Princess birthday party theme.
Disney Princess Birthday Party Invitations
My daughter was extra excited for the games I had planned for her Disney Princess Birthday Party. I got some of the ideas from other blogs through Pinterest (check out my entire Disney Princess Birthday Party board on my Pinterest account). There are so many Disney Princess birthday party ideas out there, it was actually hard to narrow it down for her party, but I think we hit the perfect balance.
